my xmas present came!!!

a new 1918 BAR stock. its currently in its airsoft form so ill enjoy this for awhile before i decide to gut it open and drop in a .22LR action/barrel.

the width of the BAR receiver is a bit over 1.5 inches so in theory a Ruger 10/22 can fit in it. if the 10/22 wont fit then ill drop in my Marlin 795

everything is full metal except the plastic handguard and butt stock. but i have to say that the faux wood looks real

this bad boy feels like it weighs about 17-18lbs. will probably take it over 20lbs with a .22LR inside.

i paid $365 shipped for this limited stock. cant wait to gut this and take it to the range when im done with it

its been awhile. my wife put me on check which is why i havent been able to complete more .22 conversions. we got into a fight because she said i spend too much time with my guns.

now for pics.

i still have my other BAR with the pistol grip version that hasnt been converted yet. so ill eventually have 2 different BAR's with a .22LR inside

Wow thanks for sharing with us.
This is the most impressive collection of .22lr I have ever seen.
You do great work.

Once you convert the airsoft shells to fit the 10/22 or the Marlins, how long does it take you to swap the barrel action between them?

about 5 minutes or less.

if there's more screws then 7-8 minutes.

decided it was time to gut it. here's 3 hours of work so far just trying to figure out what needs to be fabricated and what needs cutting

there's a Marlin 795 "pre fitted" in right now.

- more cutting to move the 795 ejection port forward.
- buy a metal barrel shroud to go over the 795 barrel to fit the heavy bipod and front sight.
- redesign the extension trigger.
- drill a hole for an extension screw through the action
- drill a hole for the safety
- JB weld Marlin 795 magazine to the BAR magazine

Latest progress on the .22LR 1918 BAR using a Marlin 795

Finished JB welding the brass coupling. Just cured last night so its nice and tight. Just have to paint the brass piping flat black and then I'm off to the range tomorrow for test fires.

Why did I use brass piping? Because the 795 barrel was too short and I wanted to re-use the bipod so I bought brass piping with a 3/4 inner diameter that easily slips over the 795 barrel. Used a couple of couplings to mate 3 pipes together. Also found a threaded piece that can simulate a flash hider.

thanks. none of these are aftermarket drop in kits. theyre all custom made to fit a dedicated .22 action/barrel. the only drop in kit that i own thats not pictured is the Archangel Nomad which is the G36 clone for the 10/22.

since you dont have the time nor skill to do it, the answer is to pay your local gunsmith to retrofit/inlet your .22 into a chassis that you want. that's the easiest way to do it.
