.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. Will then be rewelding it with filler, grinding down the slag, milling out the receiver, putting the barrel through a lathe to bore it out. 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.

Magazine, barrel and handle bar are being shipped.

.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.

Bipod and handle bar are currently being shipped.

Finally had time to clean off the cosmoline(grease) today.

Spent half an hour on planning.

Pre fitted the barrel, bipod and magazine.

I need to run the barrel through a lathe to bore it about 3/4 diameter
to make room for the 10/22 barrel to slide through it.

Need to mill out the Bren lower receiver so the 10/22 trigger can drop right in
and I can get access to the 10/22 magwell

I dont plan on using the torched receiver parts. I plan on using sheet metal to reconstruct the receiver and just weld it until it fits the 10/22

Need to grind out the slag from the torch cuts.

Add a hinge to the receiver and side wall of the Bren so I can easily take out the 10/22

Plasti dip all the wood

Paint the rest of the gun flat black
