This picture confuses me. How did you convert a magazine fed .22 lr into a belt fed .30 cal?

Can you shed some light on your conversion for us that have never seen this before?

It's just a dress up kit for my Marlin 60.

It's a gutted airsoft stock and I dropped in a Marlin 60 action/barrel and bolted it up.

I have other centerfire replicas using 10/22, Marlin 795/XT-22/60's, Savage MKII F

Those are dummy links to complete the look. Just like the other 3 in this pic are made up of two 10/22's and another Marlin 60.

So when he's old enough to shoot with me, we can dual wield these. hahahaha
