Anyone have any comments about this MG42 conversion kit for the 10/22?

They are bit pricey for a clam shell design for the Ruger 10/22. They have been out for years and always figured the price would drop after time but they are still getting pretty penny for them.
You folks can own semi-auto MG42's correct?
Because I live ACROSS state lines I can have THIS MG42... :gunsmilie:

Nice MAG58 Ron.
I cobbled one together many, many years ago.
Looks better than the Krinker Plinker. I gave it a wipe with the appropriately colored paints to give it a worn metallic look.
Then I discovered that the left side of the "receiver" has an indentation that will hold a 5.56 round. So now it's got a 9 round belt hanging there in a rather decorative way.
The glue used to hold the muzzle device was substandard to say the least. I just went ahead and drilled and tapped the plastic parts and carefully locktited the assembly with .25 ss setscrews.
The sights are garbage. But it's still fun.
