After seeing all the great work Hanging Tree Armory has done, I sent Tim my barrel to have him work his magic. Suppressors are a no-no in my state so I went a different route and opted out of the threading. Tim cut and crowned the barrel for me, and relocated the front sight. He did a superb job and I really like how the gun still has a factory look. If anyone is on the fence about having this done, DO IT. Tim charges $75 for the work and he even covers return shipping. Does anyone have an exact weight for an 18" Takedown with the factory sight base and no magazine? I'm interested to see what the weight savings is.

I ordered a Leupold 4x Rimfire, QRW Rings, and a scope base on black friday. I finally got the rings today . The Leupold scope base is really nice. It has a groove down the center that allows use of the factory iron sights when the base is mounted. My next project will be cutting up and fitting a Hogue Overmolded stock. I ordered the standard profile barrel version so I can utilize the factory barrel.

I think you have the perfect setup, the barrel lenght, scope and all!
Ruger should have offered the Takedown with a 16" barrel from the get go.

Needs an AGP folder.

The 2nd Amendment is not about rights. It is about CAPABILITY. It is about ensuring the capability to respond to violence, and oppression. Not with 1 round, or 10, but with the full force of indignant violence deserved at a breach of our peace.
