    Wherever I can get them cheapest.

    Usually they pop up on rimfirecentral from time to time. Could put out a WTB.

    If buying new.... I dunno. Check our some of the RFC supporters, they usually have decent deals.

    Is he talking about a Hogue stock? :dunno:


    I've been thinking about selling my 10/22. Just don't have any interest in it lately. :(
     
  5. I got my Overmold from Midway. I'm sure Brownells sells them too.

    That's what I meant. I have 2 22s now but I'd like to build a 10/22. My Rem 597 is nice but I'd like something with a floating barrel and such.

    I hated my 597, and the feeling on it's side must have been mutual since it tried killing me. I support any reason someone needs to get away from those hunks of shit.



    FWIW, I've been hearing from a couple people whose opinions I value heavily that FL bedding the barrel, and FF the action is a GREAT way to fly with 10/22's. I want to give it a try when I get some free-time.

    Bedding the barrel and free floating the action? Doesn't it usually go the other way around?

    Usually.... yes. The whole goal of bedding is simply to create a stabilization of pressure among the action/stock, and barrel (though usually the pressure on the barrel is zero). Accuracy is repeatability, nothing more.

    On 10/22's, there's talk that a heavier barrel can eventually fatigue the allow receiver, causing "droop", and instability. Dunno if this is why people are talking about bedding the barrel and suspending the action. It's strictly something I've heard a couple people doing, relayed for academic discussion; I still bed 10/22's like most else: bed the action and the first 1" or so of the barrel, float the rest.

    The way the barrel attaches to the receiver on the 10/22 with that V block pulls the barrel downward. Add a heavy bull barrel to the equation and it's even worse.

    I used one of those gunsmither (iirc) block on my barrel which is suppose to be better. It's like a strait block instead of a v block so instead of pulling down it pushes back. I also ran a short fluted light weight taper. The reciver is pillar bedded with that VQ pillar bedding kit. Does it make a difference. Honestly I don't know, mine is a steel plate gun not some bench rest gun.
