22LR rifle with a AWM chassis?
 
1 Attachment(s)
So I'm very new to gunsmithing, but not fabrication. I do a lot of 3D CAD work and 3D printing, so I'd like to try a simple cosmetic project.

I'd love to have a AWM/AW-338 in real life, but I'll settle for a knockoff that shoots a 22LR. I've been looking into whether or not I can fit the guts of a ruger 10 22 inside either an airsoft AWM or just 3D print the chassis myself, and it looks like it will fit. I've attached an image of an overlay using models I've found online for both.

But the 10-22 isn't bolt fed, so I'd like to get that action in there. Would there be a better cheap 22LR gun I can use that is both magazine fed and bolt action and about the same size?

Update #1: I'm looking at the Marlin 22XT, but for about $50 more, I can get the Savage 93R, which isn't a 22LR, but the price difference is so small.

CZ's in the used market.

CZ 455 for bolt action...

or

10/22 foot print, uses 10/22 triggers, but bolt-action like operation... The PWS Summit Straight pull receiver, though they're tough to find now:

#1) Calgunner Defcon has done lots of 22LR builds using airsoft shells. For example, this thread may be of interest to you:

#2) Cricket makes a scaled down 22LR AI clone:

You thinking the 1969? 455 seems a bit more than I'd like to spend.

Fascinating. That bolt thing is just to make the 10 22 a bolt action? Doesnt ruger already make a good 22 bolt action?

Ya, I found his stuff when I was looking into this, but I don't believe he has a AWM project. I sent him a message on reddit to see if he's tried it so maybe he'll get back to me. I love his BAR but that airsoft gun itself is over $300. A cheap AWM is about $125 if I try going that route, but I've noticed that some of his other projects weren't very good fits. I'd prefer this to be a really good fit, so I may end up fabricating the body myself.

I originally wanted that but didn't realize its itty bitty and single shot until I went into the store. The size is kind of cute frankly, but the single shot action is too tedious. Put together and it makes the $300 price tag hard for me to justify. If it were $125-150, then maybe.

I'm currently looking at the Mossberg 817 due to the cheap cost.

Thanks for the info. I'm a little confused on the terminology between whats a chassis and whats a skin? I thought skins usually refer to vinyl wraps or something.
