Updated Thread Title-

Defcon what is your opinion of this one?  Supposedly it has the same receiver (or same width at least) as the Marlin 60 but it is mag fed.  

What really grabbed me about this one is $107 every day price at Wally World AND it takes these...



25 rounds in a mag that doesn't look goofy like the seriously curved 10/22 high cap mags.  I can see LOTS of potential.  Hopefully they didn't sell the only one they have at Walmart, I'm running back out tomorrow and grabbing it if it's still there!

Have you played with one though?

I went ahead and bought one... couldn't pass up $107 and the fact the hicap mags already looks tactical!

I have it 90 fitted in the P90 shell already.  I'll have it completely fitted tomorrow and then need to bed it and do the trigger.

Any suggestions on a bedding putty or compound?

sorry i just barely saw this.

use Devcon epoxy steel putty or Loctite epoxy putty.   youre essentially just creating like a skeleton around the action/barrel to make sure it doesnt move around when youre firing it.

Right now I am waiting for my mags from Mossberg so I know exactly where to secure the rifle so everything lines up.

Mossberg isn't very customer friendly that's for sure. 
The first time I called they were great.  Even though the website showed the mags out of stock, the rep said they actually had them and took my order.  That was on December 6th.

I called right before Christmas for a status update and was told they were behind because of the holidays and they would send it that day, no biggy.  Then I called back after Christmas and the girl told me I couldn't have ordered in Dec 6th because they didn't have any.  I told her one of the reps said they did and placed my order.  I asked if they had them in stock now and she said yes and told me they would have it sent no later than the next day.  That was over a week ago!

Guess I will be calling them again.

Just got the mags today and first impressions- these are very nice quality mags.  For a .22 mag they have a very solid feel to them as well as a decent weight.  They definitely don't feel like a cheap toy like I was afraid of.

I'll start the build and bedding and take pics of everything along the way.  The one thing I am not sure of how to do is the mag release.  Maybe Defcon and Johnny9 can chime in with some advice when I show the mags and internals.

Okay here is my first attempt at a custom .22 Bullpup build.

I went with the Mossberg 702 Plinkster as mentioned above because of the price but mainly because of the 25 round mags you can get.  Yes the 10/22 has more options and more mags available, but it is also over twice the price.  That and I like the look of these mags better.

For tonight I just got the mag well cut out and I had already removed all the plastic supports from the inside.  It still needs the trigger linkage connected and the final bedding done, but I was excited to see what it would look like with the new mags installed.

The first picture is of the 702 Plinkster compared to a full size SKS Yugo and an SGW SKS bullpup.  The 702 already has the front and rear sights removed because I was test fitting it in the P90 stock.  I actually really like the look of it and probably will get a Plinkster and keep it in its original stock.  In case anyone hasn't guessed already the plinkster is the one in the middle.



Here is the Plinkster in its new clothing...  like I said I still need to bed it.  It is compared to an SGW bullpup and you can see it is considerably smaller, but it still measures in at the legal limit of 26".   I will probably put another 1" on the butt just to bring it over the 26" mark so there is no question about it being legal.



And below is a closeup of the P90 Terminator.


Out of all the P90s out there I personally like the look of the Terminator the best.  
For the build I sacrificed a Well P90 that was originally destined to be converted to an arcade lightgun for my full size arcade machine I built.  I decided to do this first because it looked like more fun.

The rest aside from the mags is a P90 Terminator accessory kit from Evike that I got for $65 I think, I'll double check that but it wasn't very expensive at all.  The kit comes with the front rail system, the P90 mock silencer (I'll show how that is going to be mounted so it is legal) and the P90 mag conversion.  I removed the AR15 style side mount mag setup and connected the cover to the original Well P90 magazine.  You can still remove the mag, it's obviously just for looks and I think it's cool looking.  Well it does serve more than just looks, it gives you a higher cheek weld which makes sighting more comfortable.  

The front grip is just a Magpul grip I had laying around.

I'll show the inside when I get it all done and will lay it out from the empty Well stock to the skeleton supports I am making and finally the bedding.

So far I'm pleased with it for my first .22 build.

As for the mag release, now that I have the 25 round mags and see how they fit I know how I will do it-  Someone else used a Plinkster and they said they just made the mag well bigger than the mag and stick their thumb inside the stock.  At first I thought that would be too awkward to do it that way, but after test fitting the mag release isn't that far inside the stock and doesn't feel bad.  So that's how I am going to do the mag release.

At least that's solved now Smiley

Right now my work bench/table area is being taken up with an old trunk I am restoring and turning into a coffee table.  Once I get that project done I'll take the P9702 apart and take some detailed pictures of the internals.
