Ruger 10/22 - M1 Carbine stock

I came across this in my Shotgun News and thought it would be a neat little project for my 10/22. I was wondering if anyone has tried this dress up deal for their own 10/22? Is the company "Sarco" a good company to deal with and do they have a good product normally? They claim to be a drop in kit, I have seen where a man did his own M1 grande 10/22 but I think the M1 carbine is more proportionate. I''l add the link, let me know what you all think, its $99 so not real cheap but if its what it claims then it'll be worth it.

Thats about right for one, though I think most dont include the sling/oiler. I have seen one of the discount mags offer it for 89, but I am sure the sling/oiler weren't included.
Not sure if there is more than one company making these or not, but all the ones I have seen are pretty cool. Light or dark wood finishes, your choice. The front sling mount isn't quite authentic nor the cutout for the front sight leaf on the handguard, but they still look very much like an M1 carbine. I keep thinking about one, haven't plunged for one yet though.

I'd love to see a completed one Rev. I think the new Ruger BX-25 mag will be the final touch that makes it work too. Winters coming and I have another knee to replace and I'm lining up some projects, I think this might just be on the list.
P.S. almost forgot to mention the sites are not in this kit but my favorite 10/22 sites TRS100 will look great on it.

I bought one from Sarco and I was very pleased with it. Bolted right up with no fitting issues, the Sling and oiler were fine. The sling looked a bit old and had some small rust staining and rust around the metal sling "u" clips but it brushed off and I actually liked the way the sling kind of looked old USGI. Sarco has been around forever and I've bought many things from them as well as a RIA tactical 1911. They are top notch to deal with in my book and thier prices are really good. I also bought Tech sights and now my 10/22 looks just like my NPM USGI M1 Carbine. In short I recommend them!

i saw the one on the M1 Garand conversion and it was rather involved.

the M1 Carbine conversion doesn't look as involved as the M1 Garand. (as per thuffy1 above)

good idea...let us see a pic when you're done.

They look very good in person. I saw one at an Appleseed event recently.

There are several companies that make the stock and fore arm.
Shooters Discount, Inc.
Ammo & Hunting Gear, Camping & Outdoor Equipment, Military Surplus & Clothing at Sportsman's Guide
E. Arthur Brown Company - Home Page
They all look good and have good reviews. I have not tried any of them, but sure would love too.

Here is mine next to my USGI M1 Carbine, sorry the pics are not better. Don't let the pics fool you the length is almost the same with the 10/22 being not quite 1/2" longer, the fact that the 10/22 is closer and the angle of the pic just makes the 10/22 look longer than that. Looking forward to shooting it at an upcoming Appleseed event.

That looks really cool!!! Now, all I have to do is convince my wife that there is some kind of gun law requiring that this be done...

That is cool. I saw a conversion a guy did on some forums a few years ago and he mentioned an article from a gun mag he went by, said he would email it to anybody who was interested. I requested it and he emailed me the article (from 1980's era issue I think) that featured the same conversion this guy did but from an old USGI M1 carbine stock. I started out looking to do the same thing and found some USGI stocks for $65 at a local gun show, most were beat up but some had cartouches etc. I decided I did not want to destroy a stock someone could use to restore a piece of history and the stocks themselves were pieces of history as well. All USGI carbines were made during WWII. Then I started looking for replacement non USGI stocks and I think I found something somewhere for about $75, I passed on it and shortly after someone replied on the same forums about these M1 stocks made for the 10/22. I decided to wait and finally last month or so I bought the one off of Sarco. I'm very pleased and it was a quick and fun conversion and I dialed the Tech sights in last week for 25 yards as that is what they shoot the Appleseed at. I also put in the Volquartzen hammer/auto bolt kit and trigger for about $55, now it has a 2lb trigger pull and is very accurate! If I'd already had an M1 carbine stock that was non-USGI or a replacement like this guy had then I would have did what he did but since I did not I decided to just go this route. Either way the M1 carbine and 10/22 just seem to be made for eachother, matter of fact that is why the simple 10/22 carbine model with the "barrel band" has always been my favorite since I was a kid always kind of reminded me of the M1 carbine.
