Desert Tech Trek-22

Owners of Ruger 10/22-pattern semi-automatic rifles will benefit from the modularity and compactness of the Trek-22 bullpup conversion kit. The stock upgrade integrates unique features, such as additional magazine storage, QD sling cups, a Picatinny rail and M-Lok accessory slots while also improving the trigger with a more than 1-lb. reduction in pull weight.

Users will also see a 7 percent reduction in overall weight compared to a factory 10/22 with an 18" barrel and hardwood stock. The installation process is straightforward; two reinforced polymer stock halves sandwich the barreled action and are secured in place with 11 machine screws. An included transfer-bar assembly repositions the trigger bow, and a new return spring is also utilized.

Cleaning the action will require full disassembly of the stock, which can be accomplished in a few minutes. The Trek-22 comes in flat dark earth, gray or olive drab green and has a suggested retail price of $300. For more information, please visit
