It might not be a true Ruger made 10/22 but its still "Ruger" designed and as far as I'm concerned its still a Ruger. And I already know the process in PA, I already have a complete 80% lower and the AK recievers, thats not the problem, the decissions that come with building a 10/22 are still up in the air though.
But I was kind of surpized how many companies say they have sell 10/22 recievers directly without calling it much else, since there are a few companies that do it, I'm asuming its safe that they do so, maybe one company could mess it up and copy it, but not several. I bet its a similar situation as the 1911. But back to my first questions?
