    Well I took the plunge and decided to build my first 10/22. So armed with my Discover card, C&R License and the Midway catelog I set out.

    I started with your basic bottom of the line blued 10/22 for a doner rifle.

    Of which I kept this.

    That I turned into this.

    Well I am very happy with the way it turned out visually but I am nervous about how it will shoot. I have never done this much to a rifle before and don't know if I did everything perfectly. I plan on doing some tweaking at the range.

    This was a mighty fun project.

    Whose barrel is it? Looks like a Volquartsen trigger group.
    Accuracy depends on the barrel, and the fit of the barrel in the receiver, then fit of the barreled action in the stock. When I did what you did, I was happy to see that the Green Mountain barrel I put in fit a little tighter than the original barrel. That goes a long way. The Rugers are really very forgiving. Try different ammo and see how it does. I just took mine out yesterday and benched it. It really likes Eley Black, and did almost as well with generic Winchester High Speed solids. I think you will be very pleased with the results.
    There are a couple of additional things to do: replace the buffer pin with an elastic pin. It will help save the receiver. I also put in an allen head action screw. It is easier to put in and out and torque down.

    That's the same way I started with my 10/22. I added a Green Mountain 18" fluted SS barrel, PowerCustom hammer and sear and smoothed the trigger to just under 2.2lbs, a Boyd's Ross Thumbhole stock, and a Bushnell 3-9x32 rimfire scope on a Weaver TO-9 mount.

    I haven't tried any match grade ammo yet bu with the bulk Winchester Dynapoints or CCI mini-mags, I can get sub-1" groups at 25yds with it.
    The next upgrade will be a bigger scope to see if I can shrink the groups or keep sub-1" at 50yds without going to expensive match grade ammo.

    Hey cslinger, are you keeping the original hardwood stock off that 10/22?

    If not, I am looking for one for another project myself. PM or email me if you want to dump the stock.

    Thanks.

    Huh? :confused:

    I put a 18" SS GM bull barrel on my 10/22, dropped in all new Power Custom trigger components, bedded it in a Hogue overmold stock, and topped it with a 3-9x Bushnell. Nothing fancy. It'll do 0.4" groups at 50 yards with Mini Mags.

    Mine's got a volq carbon fiber thm barrel, volq tg2000, volq cantilver scope mount, bell and carlson Anschutz stock, Weaver grand slam 6-24X. Shooting Win Dynapoint at 25 yards they all go through the same hole. At 50yards it's easily sub-dime.

    Tc300mag1;

    I'm also left handed & did the full route on my 10/22 a while ago. At that time, I couldn't find a good LH stock & settled on the Hogue. The Hogue is still on the gun because it works wonderfully well.

    However, if you do find a left-dedicated stock, please let me know. I'd be interested in seeing a picture of it in any case.
