10/22 Zombie Hunter

Here is one I finished last month for Halloween, a Zombie hunter 10/22. I started with a factory beech wood stock, carved in the biohazard sign and Zombie Hunter text, then filled the recesses with glow in the dark paint, covered with clear epoxy. Then I stained the stock neon green and added some accessories included a red dot sight and a bayonet









and one with the lights on, then turned off

That is bad !!!

TINCANBANDIT
First let me say that this has got to be one of the ugliest 10/22's, I have ever seen. I have to give credit where credit is due as you have done a great job as it is also possibly the most serviceable 10/22, I have ever seen. Laser, RedDot and bayonet !!! What more could a Zombie-Hunter, ask for. ????

Be Safe !!!

Needs a suppressor.

I'm wondering if you would bend the barrel stabbing a zombie with the bayonet.

In fairness, if you are down to stabbing a zombie with a bayonet, you must be out of ammo, anyway.

If I understand it right, you don't want to get zombie blood on you, their bite can infect you, their blood might, too... stabbing would be a risky last resort.

cool look in the dark, freakin fugly with the lights on!

nice work, but not for me, thanks.

This is just . . .

This is just WAY COOL.
And, yeah, it is kinda ugly.
But way cool beats ugly any day of the week.
Life is good.

I suppose the bayonet might be useful on field mice in the garden. Can't say anything kind about the stock color, but it's yours, so enjoy.

I like it, nice job Tincan. I like the green of the stock, it looks good.

I like the concept, especially the glow-in-the-dark engraving on the stock. I think a black stained stock with green glowing inlays might look better. I'm always happy to see people enjoying their guns and not taking themselves too seriously.

I agree that it's just screaming (no pun intended) for a suppressor.

BTW, in the dark picture, there's a little bit of glowing markings to the left f "Zombie Hunter." What is that?

You have way too much time on your hands.
Have fun.
How many magazines are on that rifle?
Link to the adapter?

I think Holland & Holland are hiring skilled craftsmen. They are in the UK.
