Thanks, I hope you are enjoying yours as well. I just got the Blackhawk P90 sling adaptor for it. I didn't realize it at the time of purchase it was made for an airsoft gun but it seems to work ok. I would not trust it as a permanent solution but since it was cheap it will do for now.

Back from the range and this gun has become my new favorite. This is the best tactical .22 I have shot and I have shot others which were nice but not as nice as this.

I will say that the 90/22 is not a bench gun, not horrible but a bit awkward. Also hot brass will skim across your arm at times.

Once it was sighted in I shot standing up and it came to life. The Ruger guts cycled smooth. One of the best parts is charging the handle as it felt and sounded like a real submachine gun.
It did get the attention of a few as I heard mumbling in the background with a Black ops reference or two.

If any of you are in two minds about this let me say this kit is built like a tank with tight tolerances but at the same time I do not foresee any reliability issues.

The only disappointment is the stock Ruger trigger as it's too heavy and creepy. A trigger job is in order and it will just get better and better with unlimited aftermarket to improve the guts.

Very cool Sungester. I opted for a one point sling.

I'm thinking about getting one of these...curious if anyone knows how a standard scope would be on these. Enough room for the mount and proper eye relief? Something I could use for target or chuck hunting.

I seen a picture or a YouTube video somewhere with a scope attached. I think your eye relief would depend on the quality of the scope but from the distance of the eyes where your cheek weld is placed I think it should be fine.

I finally got my 90/22 back together again after I got my trigger back from Brimstone Gunsmithing .

The trigger was set to 2.25 LBS pull with no creep and with the bullpup attached it feels like a two stage with take up from the external trigger and then hitting a wall before it breaks. It feels more like a 3lbs trigger and it is just the way I want it so its not too light.

I added a Kidd extractor, polished the contact surfaces on the bolt and receiver and added a Kidd recoil spring guide rod which is much smoother then the factory. To top it off I added a polymer buffer to quiet the action.

Now its time to test it for long term reliability before cleaning.

Thought it would work, just looked a little "tight" for good eye relief, but I'm not used to bullpup rifles. Thanks, I think I can make it work.

Right after you posted I cheek welded my gun and could see there is plenty of room for adjustment. I would say as much a rifle would give you if not more.

As far a bullpup rifles go I don't find any drawbacks except for trigger feel which can be sorted out with a good trigger job.
