10/22 Conversion Kit Worth It?

I saw this conversion kit for the first time as I was thumbing through The SportsmansGuide Catalog on-line, and was taken by it. There are so many cool looking but horrible conversion kits on the market for the 10/22 that I am leary of them. Has anyone purchased one of these? If you have, are they as good as they claim or as good as the money you'd spend on it?

    Why would you want to do that?

    Yes it works.

    It says "mag. not included". Do you use factory Ruger Mag.?

    Dumb, dumb, dumb except for the pistol grip that could enhance accuracy.
    Reducing sight radius is a mistake of the first order.
    The anti's can make hay with these toy conversions.

    I bought one of these "krinker Plinkers" for myself as an X-mas present.

    I love it !!

    It serves no really useful purpose (ie - target, varmit, etc. type shooting), but it's "COOL" to just play around with at the range. Everyone that I'v e let handle it, likes it (maybe not enough to get one of their own).

    Well, like my father in law said before I married his daughter..."once it comes out of your mouth you can NEVER take it back".

    Well I am glad I could delete my response to this post. After I was successful in viewing his link, I was on the wrong track.

    Now that I THINK I'm on the straight and narrow, I still wouldn't go that route.

    Thanks for letting me eat my words.

    Looks pretty craptastic to me. I wouldn't do it.

    I think there would be better things to do w/ your 10/22, and then just buy one of these.

    Just received my Krinker Plinker kit and it is well made and everything fit nicely. I would say it is a little expensive if you don't have a lot of $'s and there are other things you can do with a 10/22 for less money. The Bullpup stocks run about $90 and there's a MG-42 conversion for about $110. Both are fun gun setups and with a trigger activator on the MG-42 you can simulate full auto for a wild rush.

    I got a 17 HMR conversion for my 10/22 mag.
    It uses ruger magizines.
    It was very simple to changes barrel, stock. The scope was sighted in
    It shot great, cant wait til squirrel season is apond me. I go for
    head shots.
    But it a tack driver.
