I have a confession to make...I too once let my inner Bubba take over.
My victim was my Ruger 10-22. A fine rifle by any standards.
I picked up the whole bullpup kit for something like $60-70.
This is America; you get what you pay for.
It did give me the opportunity to fiddle with my gun for quite some time, until I realized that no amount of work was going to make it run smoothly or shoot well.
