Default Razorback beltfed.22LR upper

So I just got this from UPS today. My thumbs are sore from loading the belts and I am seriously regretting buying 500 links. Loading the little 10 round belt was a pain. Pictured are a 50 round belt and a 200 round belt.

Sorry that the pics are lousy. I will put up better ones as I complete the build. For now, I would appreciate any suggestions on what bipod, pistol grip (leaning toward a SAW style), buttstock and sights I should add. I don't want to spend a lot of money as this will be a plinker for now.
I know very little about red dots and such but am very interested in a dot that will let me use a zoom when my face is close in on the buttstock as well as a 1x dot I can use sitting behind the gun shooting it like it had spade grips.

LOL!

Wait till the belts get a little wear on them and loading them makes your fingers all black.

Nice Rig!......Welcome to the Belt-Fed Brotherhood.

Very cool. I was thinking about picking one of these up. Give us a range report when you get a chance to shoot it.

Wow. Seriously cool, they used to just have an xm7 or something like that that costed a few grand, pretty cool they made an affordable belt fed .22 upper. I wish I had a lot of extra cash, those mini 1919a4's sound really really cool.

sure it slow loading initially but after awhile when you're used to wearing them they won't eat up so much time

This is my first belt-fed. I was feeding snapcaps to figure out how the machine actually works and it is quite fascinating.

I still have to unpack the feed box/brass and link catcher setup.

I actually chose this over a FA MAC11 but have a trigger activator on its way for this toy. Hopefully it will work.

It needs more parts so range time won't happen till next week. I'll post video.

It is a .22LR belt fed upper, actions are based on the Browning 1919 series. Just keep your barrel 16'' or more and your overall length 26'' or more and don't link belts greater than 10rds.

I spent a couple hours linking ammo today. The feed boxes have 200 rounds of linked and belted ammo. The linked ammo on the floor is about 300 rounds.
The Lakeside magwell adapter holds the feed box on the left and a link catcher on the right. Brass falls into the "mag" or the bottom can be opened for brass to drop below.

Even with the loading kit I can only link 4 rounds at a time and then add on to the belt. My wife's first comment was, "It took you 4 hrs to load that and it will take minutes to shoot."

Thats a serious turn off. How much time does it take to load the fabric belts? Perhaps this is something that you must get the hang of to do fast?

The fabric belts are much easier to load. I bought the Lakeside loading kit which has a little box that makes the .22's fall into a slot and line up. Once lined up 10 rounds are dropped nose down into another box that keeps them lined up. I did not use those pieces but I did mount the rest of the kit to a 2x4. These are 5 plastic pieces that hold 10 rounds each in a line for 50 rounds total. I just grabbed my ammo out of my can and dropped them into the slots. Then I take the cloth belt and slide it over 1 bullet at a time. The loading kit does make the bullets stay at the right spot in the belt for feeding reliability. The 200 round belt can probably be loaded in 20 minutes once it is loose enough. The links are very time consuming but Lakeside did warn me about that.

I've got plenty of 10/22s and I considered an AR .22 upper but for a few bux more I got my first belt-fed. I have some interesting modification plans for it so this is going to be a little more unique to see at the range. My other choices were an American 180 with 275 round magazines or a Calico m100 but since I had the spare lower I went this route and to be more different.

OK I have a dumb question.

CA law says 10 round max on magazines after 2000 unless FT LEO, blah blah.

What is the law in CA regarding belt fed guns like the OP's? Do they consider a belt a magazine? Pretty sure a belt is not the same definition as a spring loaded magazine? Even if it fell under "manufacturing" it's still not a magazine though.

I realize the OP is in AZ and doesn't apply to him lucky SOB but wondering how the whole belt fed thing works in KA.

Same goes for belt. No more than 10 rounds linked in Ca. And since this upper was manufactured after the the ban, you cant come back and say you bought the belts before the ban

The newer Lakeside models called the Razorbacks are selling around $700 and that should include a big kit. The older ones called the LM7s and the mini-1919A4s are much more expensive. The belt fed 5.56mm Shrike that Ares made has been "out" for years, it is crazy how long people have been waiting and are continuing to wait for that thing that have already paid for it.

If you guys are really interested than read through the thread, I left the link there that has all the info on it and the place to order it from.

awsome awsome rifle you have there! Reminds me of the belt fed .22lr 1919.

does not mean you cant have them nor is it illegal own or use them, regardless of when the firearm was built.

New video. Eric at Lakeside gave it a tune-up. I had it out twice since then and it is running great. It's fun but .22lr is so dirty I have to clean it every pack and if the round slips too much in the belt the fun stops.
