I tried to buy one of those "Thompson" kits for a 10/22 but the guy said they are out of them and didn't know if or when they would have any more. That was about 6 or 7 months ago.

They're expensive and not easy to come by near me. And ammo is lot more expensive than .22

I just picked up a new 1022 m1 clone. It was not as nice a piece of wood as I hoped .It was darker than I thought it would be, but it fits as well as any stock has. A little Johnsons paste wax gave it a much nicer finish.I brought it home and disassembled cleaned and lubed properly honed off any high spots. Added auto bolt release. The action feels just like the last one so I have a good feeling about it. The trigger was smoother than the last one. The sights are good for my eyes, the rear acts as a ghost ring and the front sight blade is clear. I had pre-ordered a sling and oiler from Numrich arms and it fit perfectly and looks correct on the gun.I think I will like this one.

I picked up more magazines and couplings so maybe it will look better with the mag sticking out.

Just came back from shooting for first time. I tried several different ammo brands and had no failures of any kind I used two new mags and two old. I was disappointed that I could not use the sights the front sight is nice and clear but my eyes are so bad the rear even as a ghost ring kept me shifting point of aim. It drove me crazy trying to zero in the rear sight before I figured out the problem was me not the sight, my friend could see them clearly. Now I have to put a scope on it I was hoping not to. I am disappointed with the finish on the stock I would advise others to build their own as the stocks from the other companies are nicer. However it is only wood and can be sanded and refinished or custom painted. I does seem to be group shots nicely and I did enjoy shooting it.
Now let the customizing begin.

Those are some nice looking original M1s If I could find some that still work and shoot well
I would have Purchased some before. I did look into reproductions but all the guys at the range who had them were not happy the never worked consistently.
My observation is that anyone who has a good one will never sell it, they will pass it down instead.
