    skulk around the local pawn shops too, especially if you're planning on replacing nearly everything on it anyway.

    If you are buying it for the receiver, then new I think the short youth or whatever models are a little cheaper.

    Personally, I'd be hitting up the local gun shops/pawn stores, and what have you. I've snagged some really good deal from coon-hunters who's guns are typically beat to all shit from rolling around in a truck, but mechanically fine.

    *meh* deal on that.

    I'd try getting him to keep the shit bipod, scope, and rings. The mag is good. The barrel is going to be heavy, and as it sits it will likely balance forward. Could probably toss the barrel for some change, though shorter/lighter tubes are kinda scarce at the moment.

    "stainless" receivers, aren't, a la factory Ruger. Silver spray paint will be the same thing, so don't get duped there. stainless tubes, on the other hand, are worth the money IMO.

    You checked RFC?

    Why do you need an expensive scope on a gun that wont reach out past probably 50yds.. I looked on the box of ammo that I have and its a 6-7" bullet drop by 100yds... the bipod is nice, and the rings do their job..

    I have $600 (seriously.. the base rifle was $225, but I have since sold the factory stock and barrel) into it now and I have never fired it, the parts are hardly shit.. scope is adepqute for a 10/22, the bipod is all metal (and needed, it is front heavy).. guess just because It doesnt say Harris on it :dunno:
    I dont know what do you mean just the rifle, if I part it out I will probably just be furthur in the hole on it.. I think now its working and I got the barrel sorted out I am gonna keep it for a while... I still have my TI-25 mag I paid like $40 shipped and Its never fed a round.. dont know if I will keep that

    Take out the scope, rings, and bipod. If you don't want to, I understand.

    Not everyone shoots their 22's strictly under 50yds (myself being one of them).

    I suppose it's all relative to what you do. I have actually broken that same scope (erector cried foul after being twisted one weekend when we were dicking around out at 200yds), and that bipod (if it's the same one that you get from Wal-Mart). I also found that that scope didn't have enough erector travel to take a 22 to 200, without using some Posi-aligns to give it extra "ups". The bipod I used doesn't swivel, and the legs weren't notched. I also thought it had more "hop" than the real Harris model.

    That wasn't intended to be a huge knock on you, but I suppose that's how it looks. For what I do, that scope/bipod arrangement simply didn't cut it.

    Its hardly a walmart special bipod.. it was like $80, its very solid and I doubt I will be shooting anymore than 50yds and I got this just for target shooting, had problems with this, but they are solved now, I still need to go shoot it and scope sighted in, I was gonna buy a more expensive scope, but again for my use, its more than enough at 9x.
