Do you have this yet?  Interested in the quality of plastic and whether it splits or not?

finished disassembling it last night.

plastic is hard and good.  not flimsy. 

just by looking at it, i believe this can fit a 10/22 since the receiver is pretty wide.

ill test fit a 10/22 but will end up using my Marlin 60

Did it split in half?  How's the trigger?  It looks pretty cheap in the pictures.  I guess I was spoiled with the big sliding trigger of the FN2000.

i didnt split it in half.  there were retaining pins that i just pushed out and the front handguard was removable.  so you can install it from the top and then bolt it in.  there's no need to split it in half.   

you can split it in half but i think its glued shut which makes it harder to split.

trigger rod system is pretty fancy compared to others ive seen. 

ill try to take pics tonight

 Can't wait to see it.  I still want to do one of these, but since CA SB 374 was amended there is no rush now.

Did you ever get this painted?

BTW, what do you typically use for paint? I have had great results with Rustoleum Camo on plastics but that is on a single project.
