    It looks a little different from the average. It's a bullpup semiauto with an "A2" type handle on top. The handle has one of the most clever rear sights built into the side facing the shooter. It slides up the side of the handle to a lock into alignment with the front sight (which also looks a little "M16"). The sight has multiple elevation settings employed by rotating a wheel that has the notches cut out on it's perimiter. The rifle has a thumbhole stock with ambi controls of everything except the charge handle which is on the right side. Do any of you own one of these rifles? How do you like them?

    Sounds like the dreaded G22

    and isn't getting very good reviews for function. It does have a distinctive look, however...

    I've had a G22 for several months now and I haven't had any problems with it. I shoot winchester dynapoint through it. I'm running a test on mine where I'm refusing to clean it to see when it jams. I'm past 1000rnds of dynapoint and it keeps on going. I only add a little oil to the bolt and clean the magazine. The rifle is pretty accurate considering that the trigger uses a linkage in order to get the bullpup configuration. Offhand at 25 yards using an ultradot I can keep the rounds on a 2" shoot and C. I got mine for under $400. It's a darn fun little plinker.

    Hmmmm
    Ruger 10/22 $150
    GM 16" Bull barrel with fire sights $149
    Volquatsen hammer $30
    Hogue "overmolded" stock $50

    Accurate as hell. That's the route I'd go.....wait a minute.... I DID. ;)
    I've heard less than stellar reviews on the G22. If you're sold on a bullpup, I'd opt for a Ruger conversion.

    Trumpet, where have you seen a 10-22 bullpup conversion? I have been asking myself why I haven't seen one yet and I don't have a good answer other than;
    A: Tradition
    B: It would likely need a linkage to reach which might make a nice trigger hard to get.

    The 10/22 bullpup is two flimsy pieces of plastic slapped together.

    If you're looking for accuracy, FrankenRugers will outshoot the G22. As accuracy goes, the G22 doesn't compare to my ruger with volq trigger unit and THM barrel.

    When its apart, flimsy is a good description, but once assembled with a 10/22 inside it stiffens up a lot. I've had fun with mine, but I've rebarreled and restocked mine to a more conventional configuration so PM me if you are interested in the stock.

    Had lots of fun with it blowing thru 50 rounds at a time using the "conveyer belt" mags.
