Just picked up a Talo 10/22 M1. Beautiful rifle. The walnut stock has at least a 2x burl in the graon. Shoots great. Replaced the clunky 15 Rd mag with a stock 10 round. Hope to post pictures soon. Anyone else have one? How do you like it?

I have one and hope the OP doesnt mind me jumping in and posting pics. Believe it.or not,.mine is my first ever 10/22! I LOVE M1 carbines and had half a mind to turn a 10/22 into an M1. As providence would have it, I walked into my LGS and saw this for $314 and didnt bat an eye buying it. I have fired it less than 50 times, so I have no real opinion of it other than it looks cool. Im debating on sanding and finishing the VERY minimally finished factory stock. I carried it once scouting a new hunting lease here in GA a few weeks ago in the 90 degree heat and my swaet raised the wood grain a tad from being slung across my sweaty back. Ha!

Dang guys give me a break, just about the time I thought I had enough Ruger 10-22's with a standard 10-22 and then the International, now you come up with a M-1 Carbine version. When is it going to stop? I got to have one.

I purchased one a few months ago. I had to do some sanding to get a GI sling and oiler to fit. I then sealed the stock with some linseed oil. A local dealer had two in stock, the one I bought also had semi fancy walnut, while the other's walnut stock was plain Jane as could be. Seems to be a good shooter, but I wish they had put a more realistic M1 carbine rear site on the rear instead of the mini 14 peep site. I am not a 10/22 fan preferring bolt and lever action .22s, but I have to admit that the carbine replica has become my favorite 10/22 over several others I have. Feels a lot like my Winchester M-1 carbine except for the lesser recoil of course. Fun Rifle.

Nice looking carbine but I would at the very least treat the wood with linseed oil. It would "look" even better with a box magazine but I guess most of your extended mags for the 10/22 are curved.

I have seen some mags online that are a Ruger 10/22 10-round magazine with a "false" box attached to the bottom. When it is inserted it looks like the original M-1 carbine 15-round mag.

I don't remember where I saw those, but a Google search should turn them up.

Here's one source:

They also sell a M1 carbine replacement stock if you want to convert an existing 10/22.

I purchased one about a week ago and it arrived today.

The stock seems unfinished. I will be looking at that.

There's no sling, no oiler. So, I'll need to find a 1" M1 sling with oiler.

The rear sight is plastic. Not happy about that. The front sight is a banded blade sight. I'll be looking at replacing with Tech Sights.

Not yet fired, but so far, other than the above, quite impressed.

this is my WW collection of kits for the 10/22
wow, can you post data where those kits come from? That would be sweet to buy a few cheap used ones and convert them...

The Carbine is from EA Brown(eabco), the Thompson is from 1022fungun. The folder, I don't remember, could have been eabco also.

Why not just buy a real M1 Carbine? They're really fun guns. Here's my two guns.

I tried to buy one of those "Thompson" kits for a 10/22 but the guy said they are out of them and didn't know if or when they would have any more. That was about 6 or 7 months ago.

They're expensive and not easy to come by near me. And ammo is lot more expensive than .22

I just picked up a new 1022 m1 clone. It was not as nice a piece of wood as I hoped .It was darker than I thought it would be, but it fits as well as any stock has. A little Johnsons paste wax gave it a much nicer finish.I brought it home and disassembled cleaned and lubed properly honed off any high spots. Added auto bolt release. The action feels just like the last one so I have a good feeling about it. The trigger was smoother than the last one. The sights are good for my eyes, the rear acts as a ghost ring and the front sight blade is clear. I had pre-ordered a sling and oiler from Numrich arms and it fit perfectly and looks correct on the gun.I think I will like this one.

Just came back from shooting for first time. I tried several different ammo brands and had no failures of any kind I used two new mags and two old. I was disappointed that I could not use the sights the front sight is nice and clear but my eyes are so bad the rear even as a ghost ring kept me shifting point of aim. It drove me crazy trying to zero in the rear sight before I figured out the problem was me not the sight, my friend could see them clearly. Now I have to put a scope on it I was hoping not to. I am disappointed with the finish on the stock I would advise others to build their own as the stocks from the other companies are nicer. However it is only wood and can be sanded and refinished or custom painted. I does seem to be group shots nicely and I did enjoy shooting it.
Now let the customizing begin.
