Kingston Armory, of Liberty, New York, manufacturers .22LR caliber semi-automatic rifles specifically developed and designed to replicate the M1 Garand and M14. Kingston manufactures their receivers, which closely resemble Ruger 10/22 actions, from 4140 steel. When combined with Ruger 10-round rotary magazines and full size Boyd’s walnut stocks, these little rifles do a pretty good job of impersonating the real deal. The weight of the KA .22 clone is less than a real M-1 Garand, but is still quite substantial. I shouldered the M-1 Garand version and I must say that it felt like I was holding its .30-06 big brother . . .
Here’s the “M-14″version:
In the photo below, you can see the 10/22 style receiver and the 10-round rotary magazine on the M-1 Garand:
