    I think you took a great 10/22 and bolted on a bunch of AirSoft-quality parts to it :rolleyes:

    But, hey, it may just be me...

    I've tried out a similar sight to your holographic one... I ended up swapping it for a Tasco RedDot. That little spring-mounted reticle thing just would not hold a zero.

    My only complaint about the RedDot is the reticle is a little too big for pinpointing the zero at 25m. Otherwise, it's a solid optic for the rifle.

    I also have something similar to your stock, an Intrafuse stock. Or yours could actually be an Intrafuse? Either way, I like my stock a lot.

    Yah its just you. I had no idea a quadrail made for a 10/22 was for an airsoft rifle?? Or wait were you refering to the Hakko holo sight that is made for pistols and shotguns? Hakko was a Japanese quality sight manufacturer that unfortunately, in their later years, sold out to the Chinese. Look for the ones that are made in Japan and you have a quality sight. Or was it as soon as you see UTG,....yep its for airsoft? Some of you guys really need to get out of the woods with your "airsoft" references. Not trying to sound like a pompus jerk <edited -- Sam> but seriously, come on.

    Sorry, also Killchain we have the same stock. I love it.

    To be honest, I think it looks ridiculous. So, no, it's not just smince.

    I guess to those who prefer a wood and metal 10/22 it would be a bit much. I built it to match the setup of my M4. Ridiculous? Why is that? Just asking. I didn't expect so much hate mail ;->

    I think some peeps would say its because ??
    In the end. you still have a 10/22 thats now $800.00 and is still an average shooter at best.
    I do think it looks Tacta cool

    To be completely honest I only spent about $400 on the rifle and all parts. I'm a deal shopper! I'll edit and list the prices on the original post.

    You may be right but there are alot of traditionalist here. In their eyes something like this rifle is just stupid, mall ninja, and airsoftesque. I don't mind some will like it some will not. But please explain your adjectives. It is a fun gun for run-n-gun though and just flat out tacticool plinking. Not to mention CHEAP to shoot. And in this case.....One of a kind. :D I've never seen one set up like this and thats why I did it too. Its one of three I own. I have a standard carbine, Target 10/22, and this tacticool build here.

    No...Its one year old....The rifle was listed for 239.99 at sports authority. When I took it to the counter it rang up for $199. I also had a $100 coupon for a promo they were running. Spend $300 get $100 gift card/coupon. Pretty good deal.

    I'm by no means a wood-and-bluing traditionalist; my 10/22 has a synthetic stock and a factory Mossy Oak Break-Up treatment, and my next rifle is going to be an AR that may end up with at least a little Magpul furniture. My problems with this gun are:

    1) Flash hider on an 18.5" .22. What use does that really serve? Granted, you said it's just for show, but that's $12 that you could have spent on ammo or put toward another magazine.
    2) The railed forend. So far, the only thing mounted on it is your front sight; how many items are you planning on mounting? Do you really need all of that space?
    3) The sights. They look absolutely goofy on a 10/22. For $10 more, you could have purchased a set of Tech Sights and had the same sight picture at a not-so-extreme height from your bore, with a longer sight radius as well. And if the rails are only there for the front sight (besides the stock-mounted rail for the VFG), that would've given you a net savings of $30.

    I guess it's just my aesthetic sense and my frugal nature.

    This. UTG is junk. Heck even Airsofters think it is crap.

    There are a number of good stocks out there to make a 10/22 "tactical" This isn't really one of them.

    I admire your creativity but... I would have chipped in a little more and had gotten a S&W 15-22. Then it would have identical controls matched with your AR.

    I tried going the tacticool 10/22 route once. It is back in its original form but with tech sights installed and some aftermarket trigger group upgrades. Since I probably won't ever get a M1 carbine (rifles are out at CMP and .30 c ammo is another caliber I don't need), the classic lines of the 10/22 will fit the bill.

    No offense, but you DID ask what we thought. So what if not everyone likes it, in the words of my father "your gonna have that". Doesnt mean you cant like it, which obviously you do. Owning and collecting firearms is just like any other hobby. Some people get excited about doing stuff to their car, or boat. If you like it, i say thats all that matters.

    that said: I own a 10/22 with walnut stock and when i first got it, was thinkin about possiby buying a similar stock. I ended up keeping it stock. The wood looks nice and i like the feel of it. Mocking a .22 up to look like an assault rifle does not make it any more accurate, nor does it make you any more efficient with it (most of the time). If you werent going for any of that, and just wanted to make it look cooler to you then you definitely accomplished your goal.

    As far as UTG goes, their products can be hit or miss. I have their quadrail on my AK and it looks and feels really good. Very sturdy. They provide cheap (in price) gun accesories, but of course sometimes they end up being cheap (in quality).

    Yah I think UTG could be hit or miss also. However I guess i've never had a "miss" when it comes to this product. But aluminum is aluminum the only difference is if its Chinese or American. I guess some can justify spending 70% more for a part cause of a name brand, that its 2oz. lighter, or that they have HEARD that its junk. Remeber bad reviews spread way faster and more than good reviews. As for the use of quad rails I mount a light and a sling loop on the left side. Yes yes how "mall ninja" of me ;-> Lastly Azizza I know there are different stocks, ie Nordic, but im not going to spend $300 on just the stock. The Tapco is just fine. If UTG is junk you must not shop at walmart then? 75-80% of what Walmart sells is cheap Chinese JUNK.
