looks kinda cool!
Now it’s a compact, fast handling and reasonably accurate carbine.
You got a picture by chance?
Yes sir - as soon as I can get my wife to take a picture with her cell phone, I'll post it. Thanks for asking!
Here it is. That’s my 10/22, our kitchen table and my wife’s toes.
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.
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.
Nice. Picture please. Maybe I should start a 10/22 Picture thread
