I talked with a company about doing this and, thus far, the solution is simply that the front sight will be lost and then I can have the barrel threaded.


I had it threaded 1/2x28 to match my SilencerCo Sparrow suppressor. 22LR suppressors usually get threaded this pitch with a thread length of 0.40". High power rifle .223/5.56 suppressor threads are longer. 0.650".

I haven't found anyone that can do this work as inexpensively as Tim. The work was top-knotch. Front sight aligned perfectly.

If the company you talked to can't do this kind of work, go somewhere else. It's basic machine work. I can't recommend Hanging Tree Armory highly enough.



Thanks for the tip. Well, the company is ADCO. In the AR section I hear nothing but good things about this company....

They do good work, and a ton of it. They likely don't have the time to do the sight setback. Send it to Tim.

JP Grips does a good job as well but they charge at least double what Tim is charging. JP Grips advertises their service on Ebay. Service was top notch and turnaround was quick - under 2 weeks - but pricey. I would have gone with Tim had I know about him.

So on recommendations from this thread I sent my barell to hanging tree. Shipped it off last saturday and recieved it this saturday. The work was good for the money. The threads where a little ruff but running my thread protector over them and cleaning the metal files out with a brass brush its smooth. Im talking 5 minutes of cleanup. The barrel had a little scratch in it from im guessing where he put it in some type of vise whether it was from the lathe or when he was re installing the front sght. Overall ist very shallow barely deep enough to feel with a fingernail and most will buff out. The best part is where its at its completly covered by the forearm so knowing how I drag my guns through the woods I really dont care and you cant see it with the forearm on anyway. The most important part to me was the threads are concentric and no worries about baffles strikes. Also the crown on the muzzle was great and the gun shoots one hole at 30 yards with cci standard. For the super anal and picky people he may not be the guy for the job. For me and the amount he charges I will be sending him more work. Now for the pictures.

Mine's a $50 blem. I don't know what they consider blemished on it. I can't find any issues.

Lol I have one too im using for a sbr build once my paperwork comes back. I looked it over very good and the only thing I could find was a small ruff spot from what looks like a spot where they broke it out the mold. So yea they are a great deal.

2 questions:
What did you pay for the 10/22 take down? A couple local shops didn't have it in but said I could get one for a bit over $300. ouch.

Anyone compare the ruger take down and the AGP kit?
http://www.agparms.com/agp-arms-take-down-10-22-kit/

I have a regular 10/22 already so getting the AGP kit would be cheaper and the barrel is already threaded so that saves $. Is the fit and function as good as the Ruger?

Very nice!

PS: What brand of scope base do you have? I like it. Simple and not too tall like many of the 10/22 bases.

I think I ended up with a Weaver base on it. Was like $8 from Amazon. UTG is a good picatinny base, and it's ~ $7. I have so many 10/22 bases floating around I honestly can't remember.

The trick to using irons on a 10/22 is to replace them with 77/22 sights or Tech Sights. The sights Ruger puts on 10/22s are ridiculously low and all but unusable.

I paid $320 shipped.

I was ready to pull the trigger on the AGP kit when the TD came out. I like having a traditional forend on the rifle. AGP hasn't figured out a good way to do that yet. Their tubular forends are gumpy looking. I still might do an AGP takedown at some point, just to play with it.

So is the front sight base pressed on or profiled fom the barrel blank?

He chops the original base off, bores it out, threads it and times it to the new barrel threads.

the question that hasn't been asked: how does it shoot? Is it a tackdriver, on par with a stock 10-22, or "minute of squirrel"?

I'm guessing it's just about like any 10-22 right out of the box, but had to ask....

Shoots really tight with Win subsonics. Haven't tried much else in it. The only thing I notice different from a standard 10/22 is that it is much more sensitive to pressure on the forend, which makes sense because you are basically resting it on its barrel if you stick it on a bench rest. Rest it as far back as you can and it groups tight.

That makes sense.

How tight is "really tight"?

Well that's inspiring work!

I just picked up a 10/22 TD a few days ago and a some BX mags. In a single session put 400+ rounds of CCI Blazer through it with ZERO failures from the ammo, mags, or rifle. There was all sorts of garbage falling out of the action during mag changes. I wish I would've had a bit more time to dump a few more mags to make it a full brick (next time).


My only gripe about Blazer is it left a little ring of lead in the bore just forward of the chamber, but it leads up my other rimfires far worse with less rounds than I put through the TD.

I think the TD is well worth the extra price over the other models. None of my others have preformed this well and I can't break 'em down.
