    What do you think about this 10/22 bullpup? Looks like it has possibilities. A 20" .920 bull barrel can be cut/threaded to 18.5" pretty economically (18.5" threaded bull barrels are hard to come by) + the 10/22 internals/decent trigger equals about a $600-$650 bullpup once done.

    Of course a real PS-90 is much nicer, but this one is 1/2 the price or less and won't break the bank in ammo and can be shot on rimfire ranges. The fact that it meets the bare minimum OAL of 26" with an 18.5" barrel is intriguing. Shortest non-NFA .22 out there.

    Looks interesting... $300 seems like a lot for just the injected molded plastic. If that's all you get with it.
    But yes way cheaper then the real thing!
    Not familiar with the company but they are sure proud of what they are selling!! AK for almost 3k! Looks like they are trying to compete with less bear on pricing? Is their stuff that good?

    IMO the short answer is no. But they are innovative. Would love to have their suppressed Saiga 12 for instance.

    Ah I get it!
    I dont have TV so didn't know that...
    Reality TV about guns? Hmm

    Wonder how quite a suppressed 12ga would be? They do have some interesting things on the web sight.

    Didn't they do this build on one of their shows? I seem to recall them using a 3-D printer to build the prototype.

    I think $300 is absolutely rediculous for a hunk of plastic.

    Well it does have an advanced trigger link/mech that will not degrade a match trigger and some other useful stuff.

    Joe designed it in one of the episodes. I love it but not for $300 bucks. It was the zombie episode with Max Brooks.

    Man I want one but I agree 300 seems high.

    What do you guys think will it come down in time or is the the price.

    Go ahead and get it. What's the worst that can happen, you don't like it and are out a few hundred bucks.
    Chances are that if you don't like it, some sidewalk commando will give you full price for it if you throw in a "Red Jacket" T-shirt. :laugh:

    People have been putting 10/22s in airsoft stocks/shells for YEARS...this is not a new concept, let alone worth $300...

    This is not an airsoft shell

    know of any airsoft shell for a 10/22 gives you an ambi safety, ambi charging handle, AND gives you a bullpup which allows you to shoot from either shoulder?

    Might want to do more research before making off hand comments.

    Still has a long mag sticking out of the back bottom of the gun unlike the real thing. Guess you could use the 10rd mag but what fun is that.

    IMHO not worth shelling out $300 for a for a fancy AIRSOFT shell.

    Whilst not ambi the Muzzelite bullpup stock has been around more than a quarter of a decade and costs only $109 (MSRP). With a few simple mods it can be made ambi.
    I'm not saying the Redjacket stock doesn't have merit. I looked over the prototypes that Joe had at shot, and it's a neat design, much better than anything else I've ever seen with their name on it.

    I will do a review if it ever shows up :). I love .22s and they are about the only ammo I can afford to shoot for 2-3 hours at a time. If it sucks - and I was a sucker - I'll say so ....
