In, 2012, a buddy of mine built one of these and when I saw it I had to have one too.I started collecting the parts.
The first thing I ordered was the conversion kit from http://www.1022fungun.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?IDProduct=1
It’s also available from Brownells http://www.brownells.com/rifle-parts/stock-forend-parts/furniture-sets/ruger-10-22-chicago-conversion-kit-prod27480.aspx
I got mine from 1022fungun.com for $320.00. I see that they are sold out until the end of Feb. 2013.
I bought the Ruger Compact 10/22 just before Christmas in 2012 from a local gun dealer.
The drum magazines (2) arrived at Cabellas where I had ordered them online.
I had all the parts by Christmas so I built it Christmas day. It was really easy.
Take the stock off of the Ruger by removing one screw.
The Ruger Compact Rifle.
All the parts.
Ready to be assembled.
With drum magazine.
Ain’t she pretty?
