Archangel G36 Conversion Kit For Ruger 10/22
Marauder Stock Ad From Guns Magazine
The ProMag/Archangel guys have another interesting Ruger 10/22 stock. Obviously, it converts a 10/22 action into an HK G36 look-alike.
I don't know a whole lot about this yet. The ad was in the new issues of Guns and American Handgunner magazine that I just got in the mail a few days ago. There's no links to the kit on the Archangel website, although it is listed at $200 on the ProMag website (no pictures or info). I haven't been able to find much information on the kit, and only one SHOT show picture.
The stock kit is listed at $155.97 on the Sportsman's Depot webstore, but the kits haven't been released yet.
A few handy enthusiasts have been cramming 10/22 actions into the plastic bodies of airsoft G36s for a few years. I remember a YouTube video showing how it's done. Someone's finally stepped up to produce a drop-in stock to do the same thing. I hope that the G36 pattern magazine is high-capacity, single-column magazine to feed the 10/22 action, and not just a huge prosthetic to cover a 10-round Ruger rotary mag. I also hope that the scope mount on the kit stock is somehow firmly attached to the 10/22 receiver inside, so these things have a chance at being resonably accurate.
