    There is an ak47 looking rifle in 22lr the AKM22. I really like the way mine shoots and now that they are making 25 round mags for it I enjoy it all the more.

    In the earley ninetys a co. called Mitchell Arms were importing about 5 versions of military 22's. I bought a AK 47. Its sure fun to shoot. I think they even imported a 22 carbine semi auto and a 22 magnum bolt action also. I dont know if they are still in business or not.

    I did something totally different.

    [​IMG]

    I put my Ruger 10/22 into a TAPCO T-6 Stock that I modified. I didn't like the looks or shape of the forend on the TAPCO T-6 Stock so after a bunch of measuring and cutting I fastened a DPMS Aluminum Carbine Length Free Float Tube to what I had left of the TAPCO Forend.

    I also shortened and crowned the factory barrel to 17" (removing the front sight in the process).

    In addition to Chamfering / Radiusing the rear of the Bolt I also did the Auto Bolt Modification. I also polished EVERYTHING inside of the trigger group to make a super crisp trigger pull.

    This is fast becoming my go to .22 Rifle. There is just something about the ergonomics of this little rifle that makes it feel great in the hands.

    Lastly I used a Power Custom Scope Base along with Yankee Hill Machine 1/2" Scope Risers with Weaver 1" High Extension Scope Rings to mount my old 3x9x32mm AO Simmons 10/22T Rifle Scope so the scope is the same height above the stock as on my Bushmaster AR-15.

    Lots of options out there for a military style .22. Only your imagination and check book are the limiting factors.

    Only a 10 dollars less than I paid for mine, not worth the airfare to get there. Great prices on some of the stuff, wish I lived closer.

    You might also consider a 10/22 conversion using a Nordic kit. This one is mine.
