    A pawn shop, just get a cheap one because you're going to replace everything but the receiver. Just make sure it isn't totally rusted out.

    That's what I said, and a week after buying it I had a 20" GM bull barrel, hogue stock, poly buffer, VQ hammer, hard edge extractor, auto bolt release, and an extended magazine release sitting on my doorstep in a UPS box. :o
     
  8. Then but the cheapest one you can find. Get a blued one if you'll want a black receiver when you modify it, or a stainless one if you want silver. Any gun shop or sporting goods store will pobably have one.

    You can buy one new for under $200. My stock one is sitting in my closet. I tried shooting it with the irons, but my god they are terrible to adjust. I plan to do piecemeal modding.

    You know that there is no difference in the material (both alloy) between the two, right?

    I've painted the receivers both colors depending on what I wanted to match, It's no thang doggggg.
     
  11. Yeah, they're both just aluminum. I just like the rough black paint that the new ones have, and it would be easier to buy one like that than to paint one. The new stainless ones have that lame silver paint. I like my 12 year old one, it's just a clearcoat on the bare aluminum.

    I picked up a NRA anniversary model for 165.99 last week at Gander Mountain.

    It was cheaper than the regular models for some reason, and the only difference I saw was the NRA medallion in the stock and the open steel sights whereas the mores expensive ones had fiber optic sights.

    Great rifles. And very inexpensive. Go to any gun store that sells used rifles, and you'll be able to find a good one for really cheap. Or just get a new one for < $200.

    Nope, killed probably 100 rabbits with it, not to mention tons of raccoons and groundhogs

    You don't *have* to change everything out on your 10/22, it's just that it's fun and easy to do. Think grown man Legos.

    My little cousin has a 10/22 we built together that's all factory take off parts. Chopped the stock down for him (he's 8-9ish), ditched the barrel band, and bedded it up. Ended up installing some Power Custom parts in the trigger, but other than that it's totally stock and it shoots great. He kills all kinds of shit with it.

    What are some good cheap modifications you can do with a 10/22? I have the autoloader that has no metal band over the barrel and am just wondering.
     
  25. VQ hammer. A Hogue Overmold stock is only like $70, and it would work with the stock barrel, but it would look kind of funny.
