WWII stocks for 10/22: Bren, FN-D BAR, MG42

MG42 parts kit is on its way.

.22LR Bren using a Ruger 10/22 (in progress)

Just got the parts kit.

First it needs to be degreased with mineral spirits and hot water to desolve the cosmoline grease. Will then grind down the slag, milling out the receiver, putting the barrel through a lathe to bore it out and fill up the cuts with epoxy glue. I will not reweld the receiver for possible legal issues. I will have to cut off the Bren trigger and trigger guard in order to have the 10/22 drop into place. Then repaint everything black.

Will take new pics with the barrel, handle bar, magazine

.22LR FN BAR using a Ruger 10/22 (in progress)

This a custom FN BAR non firing gun. The receiver is made of solid aluminum with no internals. The only things real are the barrel, magazine, and the wood furniture. I will have to mill out the solid receiver and bore out the barrel through a lathe.

Will take new pics with the handle bar and bipod

This is what the Bren and MG42 will look like.

Love the BAR look alike. Is that the grip off of a tommy gun I see on there?

Can't wait to see the finished weapon. Are they all going to be 10/22's? Where did you get the donor weapons?

yes both will definitely be made for the 10/22.

im going to make the receivers wide enough to house it. im looking for extra sheet metal at home depot so i can create more receivers from scratch

look for parts kit. you dont need an FFL for these since theyre not considered firearms. if they come with a receiver, its torched cut into 3 pieces per BATFE rules

so im just getting pieces from other guns and making some hybrid dress up kits

So you can't weld the receivers back together but can use JB Weld?

im able to weld them back together cleanly but decided not to. i still want to keep it as a parts kit with the torch cuts. at the moment, if i were to weld them back, then it might be considered a firearm. im still doing research on this though. for now im just going to weld the bottom part to the lower receiver and JB weld the gaps

Thats what I would do. Strong enough to hold for the purpose but not strong enough to be concidered hard welded.

its going to look clean when im done with it. people might think its rewelded but it wont be. i might have to use some body filler to make it smoother. we'll see.

im hoping home depot has some sheet metal thats 3/16 thick

You can sand JB Weld quite smooth. Will you paint it after its all together?

Make a plastic test and you will find you can file and sand it. You can get it smooth but it will have a matte look to it. Make sure its cured all the way and is mixed correct. I've used it to patch a notched AR15 trigger and it can take a good beating but not the pressure of an actual live fire.

They make about six or seven differant kinds. Make sure you get the one right for your use. Some can take heat, some can take water, some can take......well just read the package. I've used it to seal water pipes with 80psi. You can even seal an engine block. With JB Weld, duct tape and velcro I can fix anything.
