    I'm planning on buying another 10/22 to tinker with, replacing the stock, barrel, etc on it. Can I just buy a receiver somewhere, new?

    A stainless 10/22 is almost $200.00 by me

    I say just find a good deal on a 10/22 and sell the parts off of it. Thats what I did with mine. Unless you plan on making one of those 500 dollar plus 10/22 and replacing everything, bolt, trigger assembly, etc.

    I used to buy Every used 10-22 I ran into at pawn shops and such! I had 16 at one point. I have fully chromed out customs and carbon fiber builds that are $1100-1600 Just in parts! You are better off to find used guns and strip them or buy the wal mart model to start a new build from and use the stock for a tee-ball bat!

    The nice thing about an aftermarket receiver is that you can have a real stainless one, not a silver painted aluminum. I've seen one for $179 on brownells.com If you are replacing the barrel, stock, and trigger group anyway...might be worth it to go with the aftermarket receiver.
