Not your typical .22LR collection of rifles.



Log in to see fewer ads
They're all Marlin 795's except for the M60 which houses a 10/22

Just finished up the .22LR MG42 and .22LR Bren.

Need to find some time to test fire these two.

Also tried out weather painting the MG42 and Bren and dont like it how it looks.

Going to repaint them all black tomorrow


All the rifles in here are .22LR clones. My .22LR M249 SAW didn't make the pic.

You'd never know a Marlin 795 is under those guns....an amazing transformation.

+1 on the special talent. I rather like the weathered look on the first two.

the MG42, MG34, Bren are actual parts kits.

the MG42 i had to fabricate the receiver using aluminum square tubing and milled out an inlet for the Marlin 795 to drop int

the MG34 already had a solid aluminum cast receiver so i just milled out an inlet for another Marlin 795

the Bren had a receiver that we demilled with 3 torch cuts and had to reweld them and mill some of the internals to make the Marlin 795 fit.

the rest of the rifles are just gutted airsoft bodies. M240, M60, BAR, M249 SAW, M60E4
