I’m getting a pretty strong itch to add this to my Amazon cart and see how it works out. I can’t remember where I first saw this—on Bane’s blog I think—but this is certainly one of the cooler looking upgrades for the 10/22 platform. How can you not like the idea of having your own Maschinengewehr 42? I’m just worried it will look cheap and cheesy. Also, I’m pretty happy with all my 10/22s right now and don’t want to tear one apart to build this up, so I’d need to throw down for another rifle.

If nothing else, though, this shows once again that the 10/22 is the ultimate platform for customizing rimfire guns.
