Default Best airsoft rifle to put a .22 receiver inside?

New user found this forum doing a google search for .22 conversions.

I have a 702 plinkster ide like to put a sporting rifle shell around but im not sure what to go with.

I bought an airsoft off e-bay it was pretty cheesy, very thin plastic and it was to small to put the 702 inside.

Ive been wanting a G36 looking type

Any sugestions or links? like to keep the airsoft shell around $100.

Icon44 Re: Best airsoft rifle to put a .22 receiver inside?

Just this week on YouTube I watched a video of a guy who took a 10-22 and managed to park it inside a Personal Defense Weapon of the Airsoft variety.
It took this guy 14-15 hours over 2 days to accomplish this. I cannot remember the name of the (real world weapon) so will have to describe it the best I can.

First off it is a Bullpup design. The magazine is on top of the receiver (in Real Life) and I believe it held 50R.

OK the gun I'm speaking of is the P90. This guy paid something like $40 with about 10 of that shipping. He got it from an online seller but I don't remember the name of the dealer. When he had finished his new 10-22 looked super duper COOL.

Good Luck.

I've been talking about doing this for years but haven't found a suitable airsoft shell yet...

This is exactly the type of thing one of the morons at ATF would love to get his hands on.

Over the years I have seen pictures of many of these builds. All of them were built around 10/22 rifles.
The nicest looking ones were the P-90s.

Take a look at this link...Some are ingenious.

Some time ago perhaps 15-20 years ago one of the aftermarket 10-22 stock companies came out with a MG42 stock. As the MG42 IMHO was the best Axis MG of WWII and one of my personal favorite firearms of all time I wanted one of these.

One day several years ago I was in the right LGS at the right time. The sales guy allowed me to pickup a semi auto MG42 the store had for sale. Gee whilikers the weight of that sucker was fairly atrocious!! Worse even than a BAR I saw at a gun show down Puyallup WA way when I was much younger. This BAR was easily 16.5 to 18 pounds without even the magazine in it. This gentleman also had IIRC a Vickers 303 water cooled complete with tripod. Of all the WAC shows I've ever been to the Puyallup shows ALWAYS had the exotic that one just wouldn't see anywhere save maybe those big MG shoots in Nevada or is it Kentucky or Tennessee? Can't even remember what the shoot's name is[img]facepalm[/img]

Getting old really sucks the kucamonga sometimes. If I had some killer medical I'd go in and tell the doc I needed a full on frame off restoration. I'd have to have a suitcase full of hundred dollar bills for the down payment tho.

This agent proceeded to confiscate (STEAL) an entire shipment of Airsoft guns a dealer down there had received. Around 30 guns IIRC. I am 62 so I can not remember the actual models but I think it would have been 223s and 9mm.

As you can no doubt imagine the local MSM ran with it and ran the story into the ground. And believe it or not this ATF clown really believed with his entire being this was not only possible but feasible and worth the effort.

There's this old joke that just came to mind here. It's one of those dandies one can easily modify to fit the chat. Here it is: What do you have when you have a bus load of lawyers heading over a 1000 foot chasm? Answer? A good start. Remove *lawyers* and use ATF instead.

I put this the way I did in case there is a **no bashing of LEO rule here.**

WOW BISHOP you should fire a warning shot across our bow when you put out a link like that! Another site I pretty much live at would call that page Gun Porn. Wow all them guns dang near gave me an eruption.[img]facepalm[/img] (Can I say that here?!?Reckon I'll find out soon enuf.) The only gun I did not see I have coveted the last say 15 years was a Mauser machine pistol. A friend of mine has 2 of them. Safe queens. If I had one it would be one of my EDC guns.

Do folks ever address you as Bish Bishop? I don't know if it is still up but checkout Charlton Heston's gun collection sometime. Mister Heston had a real thing about Allied WWII guns. In just BAR's alone he had either 13 or 17 of JUST BARs. In the center of the room clustered close together were crew served weapons like 50cal on AA mounts a 50 or 30cal water cooled. I got thses pics off this website: KISSATA.com http://kissata.com

IDK if that site is still viable. My pc works like crap and won't let me go half of where I want to go. I think he had a Gatling Gun too. I actually saw an actual Gatling Gun in 45-70 within say the last 2 years. IIRC it was about $47,000 less tax. No ammo. An MG42 I saw awhile back came with 800R of 8mm and came with a spare barrel too in a wood crate.

I hope I did not go off topic too much.
