Looking for a 10/22 SBR...

Post by Boosted98gsx » Sun May 20, 2012 4:41 pm

Or bullpup. I need a "bugout" rifle in semi auto with a threaded barrel. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Would a ruger charger fit your needs? Just thread the barrel,add your suppressor,no buttstock,but very lightweight.

It's a start, but I'd like a buttstock of some sort. I know that would qualify it as a SBR though.

Easiest way would be to build a 22LR AR-15 and give it a 6.5" brl and an ACE folding stock. Yes, I'm doing this.

All in with a tax stamp it should be around $900 with stamp but it can be purchased a little at a time as you wait on the stamp. Just get the lower first. :D 8-)

Of course. Now, where to get another decent lower for relatively cheap?

A little bit OT...

@Regular Guy; When you 'SBR' an AR, do you need to name the caliber, or could you change by swapping uppers like an ordinary gun without breaking the rules? (Since I live in Norway this doesn't actually concern me, I'm just curious...)

Yes, you must state the caliber and barrel length when you register the lower. You must always maintain that configuration. You can 'temporarily' have it in another caliber. Say you have an AR 15, you can swap uppers all you want but you must have the original configuration. If you're taking somewhere, it's advisable to have it in it's original configuration. Now, let's say you have an AK SBR which can not change calibers without permanent changes then no, you may never change calibers due to the nature of construction of the AK. Only guns that can swap calibers without the use of tools can change calibers such as the AR-15, some semi auto MAC pistols, and there maybe others but the AR is the best way to go because with one lower you can have many, many uppers in any barrel length you want.

What about one of the take down 10/22's? Breaks down so you really wouldnt need to go SBR. Save your self a $200 tax stamp and the time its gonna take to process the request which we hear is getting a lot longer. Dont think any one has after market barrels out yet so you'd have to get the factory one threaded but that's not an expensive prospect. That's just coming at it from an economical stand point.

I'd like to do a TD with folding stock and SBR'ed to make one even more compact.

What about the AR-57?
It packs a bit more punch than a .22 but in that configuration takes up less space.
You can reload them if you want, and 4 mags would give you 200 rounds.
This is waht im planning on getting. they even sell the SBR versions. granted you have to go through all the paper work of an SBR.

OOOO and the cool thign about the AR-57 is that it dosn't cycle via direct impingment or gas piston, it is all recoil driven. so cleaning it is even easier than a regular AR, Just flip it open pull out the bolt, clean it clean the barrel and your ready to go.

Here is the Silenced SBR version

Ammo for that thing is not cheap.

I was thinking the same thing.
It still uses a Buffer and spring so you might have to get creative.
The buffer that it uses is supposedly pretty havy too because it gets hit a lil harder seeings as it is recoil driven.

My idea for it would be to make it a bullpup design. But not have such a long lenght of pull like regualr bullpup rifles. If you could have the empties drop out just over your wrist and have some sort of deflector to direct the hot brass away from your arm that would make for a prettty compact design.
Thne again, im no gun smith so this might all be crazy talk.
