After owning a 10/22 for 14 years I finally got around to doing a target 10/22 build.
Here’s the parts list so far;
NIB 10/22
Fajen Thumbhole Silhouette Stock
Stainless Steel Adams & Bennett Barrel
Volquartsen Bolt Release and Hammer Pack
B-Square InterLock Scope Base
Simmons 4.5 X 14 ATV Scope

Still to come when the finances allow;
A better scope, the Simmons was one that I had laying around.
Extended mag release
More trigger work.

Using Wolf match ammo it averaged ¾” ten shot groups at 50 yards.

Very nice, I have toyed around with the idea of building one, I have a 10/22T, but I want something to play with and configure all "kick ass".

Great looking gun.

I may go with the Houge overmoulded stock.



Yes, the stock is big in the palmswell area and is heavy. I'm thinking about doing a build now with my old 10/22 using a Houge stock.

Very nice!

As for doing it with the Hogue stock, I highly reccomend it. I love mine.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

as much as i dislike the way those stocks look, i held one at a pawn shop the other day and it surprised me how nice it felt.

the pawn shop wanted $650 or $699 for just the rifle and stock!

Here's what the parts cost me from Midway;
Fajen Thumbhole Silhouette Stock Unfinshed $90
Stainless Steel Adams & Bennett Barrel $90
Volquartsen Bolt Release and Hammer Pack $35
B-Square InterLock Scope Base $15
$12 shipping
$242 total for parts

The stock was on sale, currently it is $120 for a unfinished one, $160 for a finished one. The barrel was also on sale, it's $100 now.

You could always get an unfinished one and have at it with some sand paper.

BTW. Very nice 2A373!!

I have a similar stock. It's pretty easy to simply use a moderately aggressive rasp to make the grip any size you want. Follow this up with some sanding and linseed oil. That worked for me!
