M1 Carbine 10/22 Tribute

The E. Arthur Brown Company are selling a kit to that makes a Ruger 10/22 feel like a M1 Carbine.

The total cost of the kit is about $190 (Stock + Sights + Sling).

    @Matt Groom
    Not sure where you're looking, but around here there's plenty of parts to be found..
    Some parts (bolthandle, mags) are hard to find because they break faster and are therefore more expensive (think: more expensive than the weapon itself, some parts are being produced again).

    Where I live, the Erma costs anywhere between 100 and 300 euros. Not sure how much that is in American money, I guess you could buy a house for that.
    I got mine for free even.
    But ever since Colt, GSG and whoever came onto the .22lr-semi-auto-cool-looking marketsegment, Ermas have been flooding the second (or even third or fourth) -hand market.

    Sure, the Erma is german. Wich not only means it's very accurate out-of-the-reasonably-priced-box. (barrel probably coldforged in the moonlight by Rhinelandic elves) Even a blind person with parkinson shoots bullseyes with this baby.
    The downside is that it's picky on ammo, and the inside is filled with Teutonic gnome magic, so you're advised to never take it apart.

    Too bad it's no longer in production. It is the cutest rifle ever. Period.
    I was hoping one day Erma's new owners would take it into production again. Or heck, perhaps even Kahr, they wouldn't have much trouble with the magic part.

    All of the parts are available separately so, you can order only as much of the conversion as you need (i.e. if you already have the TechSights, etc).
