ARES 22RCU - Ruger Mk.II/Mk.II Carbine Conversion
I was browsing the American Rifleman website, when I discovered this article on the ARES 22RCU.
Ares Defense Systems has created a carbine conversion kit for Ruger Mk.I, Mk.II, Mk.II, and 22/45 pistols, which they call the 22RCU. It is full-on politically incorrect with a vented railed handguard and collapsible wire stock. The conversion kit isn't available yet, but Ares says that it is "coming soon."
You may be familiar with Ares if you've heard about their Shrike Belt-fed upper for the AR-15/M-16 or their AR-15 piston conversion kit.
EDIT: GunPundit found it at SHOT Show '09. You can find his blog post about it, with a better picture here. The retail price he was told would be $299.
