Awhile back I remember seing 80% receivers for 10/22s...does anybody know where i can get one?

Does anybody here build thier own 10/22s?

imo its much cheaper buying a carbine 10/22 from walmart for $150 and then selling off the stuff you dont need and building on whats left

Sometimes one needs a virgin reciever to avoid complications with the State Department. For my own purposes, it would be handy to be able to import an 80% reciever and finish the gun myself, as then I'm not limited to a 16 inch barrel.

Hard to find 10/22 rifles in Canada? Not a hit, just a question.

I have a Ruger 10/22 reciever with under 300 rounds through it. IM see if we can work something out. I was going to custom build a 10/22 but started on another project.

Not at all hard to find 10/22's. The thing is if you want to build one with a short overall length, you need to start with a bare reciever. In Canada, you can only cut down the barrel to 18 inches, and reduce the OAL to 26 inches. Go any less, and it might as well be a machine gun. HOWEVER, if you import a virgin reciever, and register it as a restricted firearm (like a handgun) than the other rules don't apply. The barrel can be any length you want and the gun can be as short as you like.

Only problem is then you are restricted to only taking it to the range. In my case, I do 95% of all my shooting at my club, so it doesn't matter.

Right up until we loose all our handguns after this next election.
