Tek 22

I recently saw a Tek 22 pistol which looks like the Czeck Skorpion and uses Ruger 10/22 magazines. Can anyone tell me who made them and their value?

This would be a nice companion to the 10/22 carbine and logistically they would use the same magazines. How good were the Tek 22s? If they're not as reliable as the 10/22 then a copy can be built from an 80% receiver which is NOT a firearm until it's machines with a short barrel but without a stock. I read in Shotgun News that the minimum barrel length for a 10/22 is 7" for it to function properly and when building a pistol then it isn't a short barreled rifle. I would like to hear more about this from Tek 22 owners or from 10/22 builders.

TEK 22's were a good idea gone sideways. I don't care for them much myself due to reliability problems with one I owned when they were still legal here in CA. I ahd the same idea but it ended in a wasted effort and a "deal" for someone else when I sold it.

As far as making an 80% receiver...I know it is done and technically legal in MOST states. I would STRONGLY recomend looking at the other pre-manufactured ( I forget the company names now) 10/22 type handguns that seem to be making a comeback since the 17m2 crazy (Volquartzen ?) If you do decide to make one from an 80% cast, check with your state law enforcement agency on legality of manufacture first. Here in CA you will have your hat handed to you (and put in jail) if you manufacture a modern cartridge fed firearm in any quantity without a license.

Thanks for the feedback gunrun45. I wanted to use an 80% receiver because I wanted to avoid using a rifle receiver which is illegal to make a pistol out of. If I can get a receiver which is NOT a rifle one then I can use 10/22 parts to build a pistol copy of the Tec 22 and use the same magazines. Plinking with it would be great especially with the Ram Line 50 rounder.

Gunrun45 I know what you have to endure with the police state anti gun laws in California. I lived there until 1994 and was shocked by the apathy when they enacted the 'assault weapon' ban in 1989. Since then their laws have gotten worse. I remember the great gun shops in Orange County in 1986 when I got there and how things went down hill. Thank G-d Ohio is a free state although many cities are enacting bans on a local level further infringing on our Second Amendment.

You can likely get one of the aftermarket 10/22 style recievers and have it papered on the white form as a handgun. From there you can go with the short bbl and all that. As for reliability, much of that is in the magazine of which most high-cap ones aren't known for great reliability. If this is a go ahead, spend the extar money and get one of the all aluminum mags mentioned in a previous post in the 10/22 area. Just as a CYA, check with your dealer ahead of time to find out if they're willing to paper the reciever as a handgun and check with your loacl legal folks as to the legalities of such a firearm in your location.

I was thinking of getting an 80% receiver because but any receiver which hasn't been used in a rifle can be papered as a pistol to comply with the NFA laws about a short barreled rifle. To comply with these laws I intend to use a new receiver.
Volquartzen does have a pistol based on the 10/22 action but it costs $972 and for .22 Long Rifle. I have some Eagle, ProMag and Ram Line magazines which work well in my 10/22. (Maybe I got lucky.)

The reciever cannot have been papered as a long gun. It is possible to buy brand new Ruger 10/22 recievers that have not been assemled but becasue they've been papered as a long gun they must remain a long gun (unless NFA route is taken). The stripped aftermarket recievers have not been papered as anything - usually. These can be used as far as I've been told by the manufacturer and by other dealers. The complete Volquartsen pistols based o the 10/22 design are not completely compatable with all 10/22 parts. magazine yes, other parts - not neccessarily.

I lived in Commiefornia for eight years and saw no attempt to stop the Roberti Roos AK ban in 1989. The NRA was nowhere to be found nor were the Californian gun owners. There was an attempt to recall that dirtbag Roberti but in the last hours they found 'absentee' ballots to save him, the stench of fraud was everywhere as was Roberti's arrogance. After I moved out of there the Second Amendment was further trampled making law abiding gun owners felon.
----------------------------------------------------------------

I don't see why we can't make a 10/22 based pistol when AK pistols are made as are AR-15 pistols as long as they don't use receivers intended for rifles. This means we can't use Ruger receivers nor any receiver papered as a long gun.
