    Ruger 10/22

    Is anyone working on a custom 10/22 build, or anyone else thinking about doing a 10/22 build? Brownells now offers custom 10/22 receivers, in plain model, picatinny railed model and a take down model, and I am thinking about a build. I would like to hear anything anyone has to say about building one of these, and any experiences that anyone has to pass on about these.

    Well sure ! I'm trying to do mine but its slow going. I will have to piece mine together a part at a time. I have a pretty plain jane 10/22, and the first thing I did was buy a new chrome trigger group for it. That seems to work great, so next I'll be looking at buying a bull barrel for mine. Since I went chrome on the trigger group, I'll probably buy a stainless bull barrel when I'm ready to do that. Then, the most important piece, IMO, is the stock. And, typically by far the most expensive. You can spend anywhere from $80 to well over $500 for a new stock. After that, a good scope, and you're pretty much in business.

    Here is a must-see forum for 10/22 junkies.

    I had a standard 10/22 with a Realtree camo pattern.

    However, didn’t really it shoot it much. Then I acquired a Suppressor. I changed out my stock to a Magpul Hunter. I replaced the barrel to a fluted thread barrel. It has a one stage Timney Trigger. I replaced the recoil spring and recoil Rod. The only things I kept stock are the receiver and bolt.

    My "build" was fairly tame compared with the guys who post on Rimfire.com- Ultimate Builds:

    https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...splay.php?f=13

    A BX trigger group, a Volquartsen bolt release and somebody's extended magazine release lever, and a beautiful stock from Mikle's Stocks on eBay:

    And since I've posted these pix before, and since it's been asked, "No, that's not the baby's changing table they're on- Just a padded top storage chest!"

    I picked that particular stock because it is able to be refitted for a bull bbl quite easily when I get the bug.

    I bought a 10/22 from my brother that was wearing a standard Ruger wood stock. I replaced the wood with the Magpul 10/22 synthetic stock and added a bipod to the built in accessory rail. My brother had installed a high end (I think) BSA scope which is more than enough for me and my bifocals. I added two pictures;

    I had thought about it hard but Ruger put the stainless steel 22" barrel in a fancy hard wood sportier stock on sale for $269. I put a bug scope on it. I'm hitting 3" clays on the 200yd berm with it and laughing like a schoolboy. I have less than $400 bucks in it. The 32 color reticle bug scope was a black Monday special from planet optics. Reg. $185 on sale $115 free shipping no tax.

    Haven't had it out for a while, (shame on me), but it shot quite nicely given the cheap, (excuse me, fine inexpensive), scope I bought. We don't have access any the moment to a "range" greater than 30 yards or so, which is not much of a proving ground. I think all 10/22 owners will agree that the rifle is limited mostly by the shooter, and I would agree...

    Here's my upgraded 10/22. I've been thinking about building a new one from one of those Brownell receivers but I have other projects that I'm working on too so who knows how long it will be before I get around to doing it. Looking forward to your build.

    Yup, I am thinking to catch the sales and acquire parts for the build, over time with no hurry. That is pretty much how I go about an AR build. I am trying to get a good idea of what works and what doesn't. I am thinking of a shrouded bull .920 barrel, either graphite or aluminium, or really anything lightweight. I am not looking to build a bench rifle, or a tactical rifle, but a hunter/plinker. But this is new and I am open to any information from those who have build one of these.
