    I ordered my Barrel, stock and tuffer buffer from shootersdiscount.com on Thursday night and it was at my house by 2:00 on Tuesday. Thought i'd share my creation with yall. I need a stock escutcheon to finish it along with a scope.

    Started as a standard 10/22. Then spent awhile like this

    Looks good. You went with the 18" tube, right?

    Hows the balance? That seems lighter than what I was thinking.

    Nikon Buckmaster 4.5x14x40?

    The GM packaging said 18" but when i held it up to my started barrel it was the same length. I had always assumed 10/22 carbines had 16" barrels.

    As for the balance; physically it feel perfect, aesthetically its stubby. 20" might have looked better but I wanted something lightweight, maneuverable

    Aftermarket for the 10/22 is massive, you can do anything and everything with a 10/22 from a building a double gatling gun, to uber tactical sniper. Consider it the Honda civic hatchback of the shooting world. It's cheap and fun to mod out.

    And it's cheap to feed and shoot.

    yep, .22lr, unless it's a .22Mag version (dunno if they make those anymore)

    Ruger is the only mfg. for 10/22's, but almost everyone and his cousin makes aftermarket parts.

    Lots of times, the only Ruger part left on the gun is the receiver, by the time the owner's worked it over.

    I want to find a 10/22 Mag somewhere so I can have a semi-auto 17HMR. :wtc: I do love shooting my standard 10/22 Carbine though!

    Man that's hot. If you have a scale laying around one day can you weigh just the stock for me? I need a new solution.

    Grats man.

    We had them on sale at Sportsman's Warehouse this weekend for $189 I believe. Drop by and check out what we have, we are getting a lot more guns on Saturday.
