    Upgraded my 10/22 with a new stock, bull barrel and scope. Think I'm going to get a suppressor for it.

    Ya, cool stock. Gosh, there are so many upgrades you can do to a 10/22 that make it like a whole new rifle.

    I put a vibration dampener on the bull barrel I installed on my own "Barbie Doll" 10-22. I don't think it shrunk my group sizes much, if any at all, but it looks kinda cool! :D

    On my 10/22 I put a Hogue youth stock, Williams rear peep sight, a taller front bead and the best accessory, a VQ hammer.
    Now it’s a compact, fast handling and reasonably accurate carbine.

    Here it is. That’s my 10/22, our kitchen table and my wife’s toes.:D
    As you can see, I have an extended magazine release on my 10/22 as well. The 15-round extended magazine actually belongs to my wife. She uses it in her Ruger “American Rimfire” .22LR.
    What doesn’t show up in the pictures is the bolt buffer, the drop-in target trigger assembly, and the aftermarket extractor. Please don’t ask me what brand anything is - it’s been a while since I played “Barbie Doll” with my 10/22, and about all I remember is I ordered most of the parts from Midway.
    Oh, the scope is a 6X44 “Alaskan Guide” from Cabela’s. I have one just like it on a Kimber bolt action .22LR. Sadly, it looks like Cabela’s doesn’t carry their “Alaskan Guide” line of scopes anymore. The ones I’ve had always served me well.:thumbup:

    Nice! I built one with Clerk 16 in bullbarrel, Power Customs target hammer, Corelite synthetic stock and bolt buffer. For many years it wore a BSA Sweet .22 scope that was adjustable from 50 to 100 yards and was a tack-driver on small game and prairie dogs!

    The BSA lasted about 8 years before the turrets wouldn't hold tight any more. I gave the rifle to my oldest son and it now wears a Vortex .22 scope. Still a tack-driver, just doesn't adjust between 50 & 100 yards. It hasn't been out much as my boys lost interest in guns & hunting. I ask my younger son if he'll take his kids hunting & shooting and he yes yes but I think I'll be the last hunter gun enthusiast in my family. I just hope I'm able to stick around long enough to teach my grand kids if I have any.

    I have a second build, Choate folding stock, Truglo 2X red dot (very good red dot!!), and fibeoptic sights and bolt buffer. That's my small game rifle and it works great.

    Do the suppressor. Best money you can spend. IF you're willing to shoot standard velocity ammo. If you shoot the formerly "cheap" plated bulk ammo it goes super sonic and negates most the the benefits of a 22 can.

    It’s easy to spend a bunch of $$$ on a 10-22. My last “build” or re-build would be more accurate, is a stainless Charger Take-Down with a Copper Custom adapter with a folding Tail Hook brace, suppressed and binary trigger.

    I only made two changes to my 10/22 and haven't seen any other 'upgrades' that seem interesting. The two changes I did make wer to drop in a BX trigger group and to change the rear sight to a peep hole version. Of the two, it's the latter that I most enjoy.
