Anyone know anything about this site? It's for the kit to make a Ruger 10/22 look like a Thompson machine gun. I went looking around on their site and all the kits say "SOLD OUT". Do they usually get sold out on their kits? They don't say anything about when they will be available.

I have a wall mount that was for my Mark 5 Commando 45 cal Thompson replica that the Justice Department confiscated from me. The backing on that mount still shows the outline of the gun. I thought I might convert a 10/22 to hang in that empty spot.

I have the Ruger made to look like an M-1 Carbine. Good match-up to my G! issue M-1. Also a copy of the Sturm Gewehr 44. Really interested in the M-1 carbine sized down for the 22.

The owner of the website called me on the phone today. He seemed like a pretty nice guy. He said they are having trouble trying to get a supplier to make the parts for them. I guess they don't actually make the parts for the kits. He said most suppliers want so much to make those parts now that he just can't do it. I guess he means they would have to charge so much for the kits that they would not sell.

He said he is going to keep trying to find a supplier so I will just keep checking their website. I hope he does find a reasonable supplier.
