    I see lots of the carbine version of the Walther made clone in gun stores and shows. The full size M16 version I have is the only one I've seen...it's not shown anywhere I know of. I happened to see mine in an out-of-town gun store I happened to be in.

    The one I saw was the M16 version. It seemed to be in good condition, too. This stock seemed like it was lighter than it would be, but I thought that might be because it was a .22 LR.

    Any idea on what a reasonable price for one of these is?

Then a few guys come up and ask what that is. I tell them about the StG 44 and then say it is a clone in .22 LR, LOL! They are still amazed at it. Shooting it fun and mine fires pretty well with few jams. I only use CCC Mini Mag .22 in mine and they wrok well. Below is a couple of pictures of the rifle in the box and just the box.

    I have one of those as well, wood crate and all. It's really fun to shoot, and pretty darn accurate for what it is. The only problem I have had with it is that it shot very low (which I have heard is a common problem with these), so I had to mill an aluminum spacer to go under the rear sight. Other than that it's a great gun that works well as an attention getter in our store right now. Another cool one is the Erma Excam RX22, a very nicely made PPK lookalike. Haven't shot it though, as it's mint in the box. Also have an Erma LA-22 "Luger" in .22, but it's a pretty sad POS that has never worked right. It looks good though.

    Unfortunately, many .22 clones are made of cheap pot metal and plastic, and some look like they won't hold up to much more than being display guns. IMO, the best way to enjoy a .22 lookalike is to use a conversion kit. Got a CMMG kit for AR-15 and a Ciener slide for 1911, both of them work very well but maybe not as accurate as you would want a .22 to be.

    Funny, Brent and I had breakfast Friday and a big part of the conversation was feasibility of the current M1903 in .22LR, as well as the current Colt Mustang series. And it was decided,.......

    I'm such a ******* snob. I have 5 German Walther PPKs (1 is a Dural 22lr). I had more at one time.
    However, I always thought those little Erma 22lr PPK clones were cool.

    I bought a kit to transform a Ruger 10/22 to look like a Tommy Gun. Shoots well and is a lot of fun.
