Ally Ruger 10/22 Conversion Kits

#1
I've started the ball rolling for acquiring my FAC and from what I've seen so far the Ruger 10/22 seems to be the most common .22 rifle. I'm not happy with just having a bog standard rifle though and I wondered if anyone could suggest ally conversion kits that are relatively easy to come by in the UK. I've seen the M1 carbine kit but what else is there around.

I do like my WW2 guns....

Are you going to dress up your rifle and make it drink tea with your dollys, that's nice, I like it when you play nice!
I like it when you play nice too. Makes a change from beating me and telling me to scream your name in Gaelic.

Nah its just to look different innit. Nothing wrong with being a bit ally. Or would it make me a rifle walt?

An RFD friend had one of these on his table at the last Bisley arms fair : HK 416 in .22

H&K 22 Rimfire - 416 D145RS

A very nice piece of kit; it looks pretty much identical to a real 416. A real fantasist's ...er... fantasy, given that you can trick it out with a million and one accessories. Bit pricey for a bunny basher, though..

That does look rather shiny :) I like.

I don't want to spend a small fortune on it though as it will just be for using in the indoor range. I'll be buying a proper rifle so id rather the majority of my cash went on that.

Perhaps less is more? There was uproar at one small-bore club I went to because the keen competition shooters with c.£2k worth of gear were being upstaged by one old boy using an ancient Winchester? bolt rifle with open sights - one of those spindly little rifles that looks like a child's airgun, and total value of which was about £3...

H&K 22 Rimfire - 416 D145RS

Now i'm not a huge intellect on firearms, just know how to fire some of them really, this may seem like a piss take question to you but here goes ' the above shows a link to a HK .22 rifle, the website refers to it as a replica. How can it be a replica when it fires live ammunition? Now i understand that it is a 'replica' of the real thing, but surely a replica is classed of a scale model that doesnt actually work?'
Thanks

I suppose its a replica of a real 416 in that the internals are different (.22 is a blow-back semi-auto) and, presumably, some or all of the externals. Bit like having a "replica" AC Cobra car made from a kit and with an engine from a Ford Fiesta. Don't think "replica" necessarily means non-functioning.

How about an MG 42 lookalike ?

Available here amongst other places.

There are a number of articles on the subject you can read, try here and here.

I think I just came a little bit. Thankyou sir.

For $110 its not bad, even if it is all plastic. It certainly will be a head turner on the range though not quite sure its going to be easy to carry around....

How anyone can put "Ally" and "10/22" in the same sentence beats me..

IMHO they are horrid little guns, and when tricked up with random bolt-ons they are horrid little guns with tricked up random bolt ons..

When you look at the number of proper rifles, made by proper gunmakers out of proper metal going on Guntrader for pennies, wtf do folk shell out good money for this tat..!

..and DON'T get me started on the AK/HK/Ray Gun clones...

There are loads of Winchesters, Remingtons, BSAs, BRNOs, etc out there..

Even Ugly had/has a nice little pile of good .22s for sale!

Edited to add...

Just been looking around - what about this.. ? Proper plastic gun!

The reason I mentioned the 10/22 was it seems to be the most common therefore easiest and cheapest to come by second hand. Its just for plinking with indoors. Ill be spending the real cash on a .303 enfield or some other.

However ill have a look through the classifieds and see what pops out at me

I've owned Ruger 10/22's since 1979. Never had a stoppage, nor an issue with parts breakage. Currently I have one in the M-1Carbine kit and fitted with a peep rear sight from a place called Tech sights
Ruger® 10/22 Rifle - adjustable aperture sights

Shoots well for cheap practice before I transition over to my .30 carbines (Underwood M1 1943 Mfr, and a Inland M1A1)

2 more are factory stock, the one part I do change is to add a tab extention mag release.

In the end go with what you want, not what internet experts tell you you want. ;)

theres nothing wrong with a 10/22, cheap as chips and more ad-ons/conversions that you could ever possibly need.

ffs, theres not that much real diff between any .22 semi-auto, they are all (well, most!) just direct blowback action, the real choice is what you want in visual look and ergonomics.

The M4/M16 look-a-likes built on AR frames are very cool, Wayne at North-West Custom rifles builds some great looking rifles but they are 900 quid upwards
North West Custom Parts v2.0 - Specialists in Customising your Firearms

the 'official' HK .22 clones (both 416 and MP-5) are made by Walther, who also make the 'official' Colt M4/M16 .22lr's.........
H&K 22 Rimfire - Home
Carl Walther GmbH
about 580 quid up for a MP-5 .22 and about 650 up for the 416 and M4 clones.

before you buy anything new, check out the second-hand market at Guntrader and Gunstar, both are chokka with pimped-up 10/22's and GSG-5's, and you can get something in great condition with extra bits on it for the price of a new gat.
guntrader.co.uk: Gun Search Results
Guns for sale. Shotguns for sale, Rifles for sale, air rifles for sale | GunStar

also check out the other military clones like the sig 522, GSG-5 and SW kick brass

.22LR Mini Tactical Rifle (micro IPSC!) is taking off and a lot of fun, its going to be the new range black. ( sorry for the pun ;P)

spice-up your shoots a bit, you can have a lot of fun with a big bag of toy plastic soldiers spread out from 10-50 meters =)

If memory serves there was a bracket for mounting two side by side and a little cam arrangement with a crank that fitted through both trigger guards. It allowed for rapid fire ala Gatling when the crank was turned.

The M1 carbine clones were best made by Erma, good little rifles too, a client of mine has one. If its a Ruger you want they arent as cheap here as in the states but I do have an account with the importers and can get you a deal possibly.
I tend to stock single shot bolts and martini classic rifles by BSA.
