I've wanted a Ruger AAC556k since I was a little kid watching the A-Team. I should have bought one a couple years ago when I had the chance to for $6500 but I didn't and now they are almost double that. So what I want to do is have a gunsmith make me a semi auto version out of a Mini Thirty. Does anyone know a competent Class III manufacture in Texas that could do this for me? Plan on doing an 11" with a Ruger OEM side folding stock.
The "A-Team" didn't use AC-556's FYI. They were stainless mini-14's with normal barrels and the factory folding stock. They added flash hiders to them with a metal handguard and 30 or 40 round magazines. They used "special" effects to make them sound like they were shooting full auto.
If you look at the show, they don't have selector switches on the rear of the receivers. (The guns are even had 18" barrels on them).
