This will be my 3rd one, each one I've built was very accurate. This one will be the macdaddy of 10/22, with out spending over 500.00
Please list your selection of parts use to make your 10/22 the tack driver it is today. In addition list your likes and dislikes with the parts used.
I'll list my new very carefully selected pieces once I seen several combos of this fine plinker.
If you feel compelled add photos but I'm more interested in the component used.
- Clark Custom Trigger / Hammer / Sear (3# Trigger Pull Now )
- Clark Custom Speed Bolt Release
- Power Custom Extended Mag Release
- Power Custom Weaver Rail Scope Mount
- Houge Rubber Overmold Heavy Barrel Stock
- Volquartsen 16.25" Carbon Fibre Barrel
- Bushnell Banner 4-12x40mm AO Scope
- Millet Ultralight Rings
- Volq. Bolt Buffer
- Volq. Hex Head Action Screw
- Volq. Exact Edge Extractor
- Bedded into the stock and 3" of the barrel also bedded with a pressure pad at the front of the stock
This will shoot Quarter Size 5 shot groups @ 50yds with Federal Gold Match Ammo.
Volquartsen makes a 22lr with a SS receiver and a carbon fiber barrel that they guarantee will shoot half inch at 50yd's and it does cause I got one. It beats any 10/22 conversion I ever did.
Very nice 10/22 guys. Ilovetoshoot its before the scope but here the list
180.00 SS Ruger 10/22 local sporting goods store
Herm is a good guy to deal with here his link and the parts I bought from him
Killer 10/22 site
$149.99 Competition Trigger Guard, 1-5/8# break weight, blow on it and it goes pop (already have)

15 ounces bad boy, made by WhistlePig. This is sweet and the price is great
Lightweight CNC 22inc bad boy barrel
So there you have it, I didn't included the price of the items I have, so I guess it a little over 500.00, its more like 683.91
$hit "WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH ME" spending 700.00 bones on a .22 and I built this because the ammo cheap and I could shoot all day for pennies, never mine the gun cost $$$$
So this is a sick game we play
I used this
and then one of the Adams & Bennett barrels
(18" SS fluted w/comp)
and a cheap Butler Creek stock with a Weaver scope
I would avoid the Butler Creek barrels.
I had one & it sucked so I sent it back.
With all of you guys swapping-out most of the parts on your 10/22's, it makes me wonder why you don't see more 10/22 parts for sale.z
Hey cnatra, How do you get the link to show up in red so we dont have to cut and paste?
PS Yes Butler Creek is Ok for what is is, but save your money and buy a hogue and a GOOD barrel
My Ruger 10/22:
Hogue overmold stock
Volquartsen trigger pack
AWC Ultra II integrally suppressed barrel
Blackhawk cheek rest
U.S. Optics SN-4 scope with custom mil-spec mount.
It blows the crap out of the $500 cap, but it is a really cool rifle.
click on the red "Board Code" text when posting
it explains it
I still think in hindsight that a Ruger 10/22T is a bargain.
My buddy has one & it is a tack driver.
The trigger could be better but that hammer-forged spiral-finished barrel looks CooL!
thanks cnatra that explains everything, I'm learning web programing so it looks familiar.
I was going to buy the 10/22T but after some research they said it wasn't as accurate as a custom, but the main factor is weight. I just bought a Savage Mark LVII .22 bolt repeater with a floated bull barrel and that bad boy is balls on accurate, but its heavy.
Hence the reason why I building another 10/22
I'll resurrect this topic once I get photos
with the gun, its total weigh and a 75 yard
target, can't wait should be fun.
anyone had a chance to check to link on the whistlebarrel???
I ain't telling you feds nothin.
I'm in the process of building my "Ultimate" 10/22. I'll give you a taste of what it's going to have in it for parts.
Here's the stock:
A Bell & Carlson custom target/bench competition stock:
A Titan .920 Stainless Steel Competition Barrel, 18"
The scope rail:
Volquartsen 10/22 Cantilever Barrel Mount:
The trigger guard:
Volquartsen 10/22 Trigger Guard 2000
I'm also putting the same scope that "ILove2Shoot" mentioned. It's a Leupold 6.5x20x40 EFR.
I plan to ad other parts to it later on like the Volquartsen 10/22 Competition Bolt Assembly:
P.S- you can find everything but the scope at Sportables.com as Ilove2shoot mentioned.
Beagles747 That is a nice weapon your building, ALLOT of high dollar parts. Has ANYONE check out the barrel link yet?? if so what do you think
