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.
