    Step right up and get your M1 and M1A .22 rimfires!

    Kingston Armory makes a full size replica of the M1 and M14 chambered in .22LR. For obvious reasons there are some compromises taken. The guns uses a rotary box magazine that Kingston makes, however it is compatible with Ruger 10-22 style magazines.

    Thank you for posting this. I thought there was a rimfire garand and years ago but maybe it was a one off, custom built experiment. These both look kind of neat and would be pretty neat to have both as a potential trainer as well as just for plinking. I might be down for the garand for the right price.

    $700 is a lot of money for a 10/22 in a dress up kit and some metal jb welded to the bottom of a ruger mag.

    If they can get the price down it'd be a seller, and yeah a polytec was cheaper. But the polytec also had inherent issues such as soft parts/bolts and problematic headspacing. I bought a poly thinking it'd be tits but after chambering a round and noting how much play was in the bolt I sold it without firing it. These guns are made for the clientele who have the disposable cash for such toys.
