Actually, the ACE stock is the thing I hate about that the least. The forearm rail, flash hider, human being rear end scope, Chrome Finish, and SAW grip all cumulatively piss me off however putting a tacticlol stock such as that one on an Ishapore 2A otherwise doesn't necessarily bug me.

Had the owner otherwise not significantly altered his firearm in the direction of pure poo poo, it'd be a fun (probably impractically expensive) modification for a fun little .308 bolt gun, especially if you modified some 20 or 30rd FAL mags to fit.
Yes, I like ACE stocks too - but the people who make ACE stocks are apparently the people who, ah... worked... on this gun.

My Dad's time in Vietnam was on the USS Stein, the frigate named for this guy. They hit a mine while providing fire support in Haiphong harbor, which lifted the ship several feet out of the water and killed the boilers - they had to be towed back to Singapore for repairs.

You know, I could still see him setting up at the range, loading his hand-rolled crispy shell with only the best ground beef, cheese & veggies, taking the time to line up his angle of attack just right... and then glaring at the kids down the lane bag-dumping an order of Taco Bell burritos, all laughing and hollering.

Come to think of it, this is an element of gŁn-meets at public ranges that we have been heretofore lax in realizing its full potential.

I thought that as well - but does this get around that restriction since the stock is attached to the magazine and not the frame itself?

This is kind of a bit late, but the 10/22 is not exactly an accurate rifle.

http://www.gunsmoke.com/guns/1022/10_22_targets.html
Hang on a sec... That article is only saying Ruger's factory 10/22T model isn't any more accurate than a custom build: "While accuracy is somewhat better than the standard carbine, custom rifles produced from the 10/22 action will outshoot the "T" by a wide margin, and offer better ergonomics to boot."

Also, the author never mentions what ammo he's using to test. Bulk Federal? Jacketed Velocitor? What are birds? We just don't know.

Yes, but HKs are deservedly huffworthy.

Ottomator, I'll agree with you on Draught, at least on tap most places serve it at room temp and that gets old after a while. But have you tried an Extra Stout? Seriously that poo poo is delicious.

Also, an ice-cold Guinness Draught + a scoop of vanilla makes a great beer float.
