I'm thinking about getting a 10/22 and converting it. I want something that is cheap to shoot FA, and the 10/22 fits the bill. What is the cheapest way to go? Registered auto sear?

I don't want to dump a zillion $$$ into it, so I want to keep it as low budget as possible. Add the price of a new 10/22 and BATF fee, plus DIAS. What is the price on average? Models of 10/22 to get/stay away from?

I'm kinda new to 10/22's, so any info would be helpful. Thanks

The John Norrell conversion for the 10/22 is the only one that was ever made that works properly. They are very popular and everyone who has one seems to like them. They are definately bullet hoses!

Below are the approximate prices

Ruger 10/22 $150
Transfer Tax $200
Registered Conversion $4500
Possible Transfer Fee* $100

Total $4850-4950

*may only be needed for an out of state transfer to your local dealer.

Not quite a zillion$$$, but as much as an M16!

Uh..... what about a DIAS for a Daisy Red Ryder 200 shot range model air rifle?

Holy jebesus....$4500 I might have to save get a M11 or something instead. Thats as much as a cheap MP5 for crying out loud.

May I suggest thay you really should consider an M-16 with a 22 Upper & conversion kit!

You will have the same amount of money invested and 30-round ciener mags are actually cheaper than 10-22 mags these days. I considered a F/A 10-22 but quickly decided the M-16 is a better choice.

Good Luck!

I would just mount a BMF activator on a 10/22 .they cost $20-30 and don't need any special license.It shoot as fast as you can crank the handle .4 shot per one revolution.

BMF's suck. I broke two of 'em already. The POS housing distorts too easy and cracks real easy. I want a real, legit, full rock and roll, class 3, dirt cheap. Plus my own island, winning lottery ticket, room in the playboy mansion, a spaceship.........

(In other words, it looks like I don't have a chance in hell0

Just learn to accurately bump fire and be done with it. It's a .22 for chrissakes.

You can bump a 10/22???

I would have thought it didn't have enough recoil. I can do it with a SAR3 but not my AR (Buffer spring soaks up too much recoil. It won't bump it past the disconnector. I've tried LOTS of times. I even honed the trigger group.)

With a SAR3 or up, I can bump.

My AR will Bump! Hook your finger on your belt loop, and rock 'n roll!

Colt postban HBAR
Wolf ammo
30 round USGI
Muzzle brake on/off

Will NOT bump. I shot 400 rounds trying. Not enough recoil to bump it past the disconnector. It gets hung up there every time. It is just too stiff. I think the disconnector spring may be a little too strong or something. Real reliable, but it won't bump for ANYTHING.

I'm new myself to the Class III thing. So take my opinions with a grain of salt. But I think if you want to play with real Class III the best bang for the buck is probably a MAC in 9MM. A MAC-10 or MAC-11. Can get them for around $1000-1500 with all the goodies. And I think it will hold it's value better than a 10/22 FA. Hell, 9 MM isn't that expensive.

An alternative at a higher price is the Vector Uzis which can be had for around $2800 to $3200. These are supposed to be very well built and I "think" once this lot is sold (and this is the last of the "new" Uzis available) will see appreciation.

Then again, if the SC rules on Emerson and takes a radical stance declaring all firearms restrictions as unconstitutional, you'll be able to buy that M16 for around $800 and will lose value on any Class III. Yeah, and pigs will fly out my butt before that happens.
