im planning on building a decent rifle to squirrel hunt with and just plink. i already have a ruger 10/22 thats just plain fun to shoot, but its groups have started to open up since i got it. and after 100k rds through it.

these have a tasco reddot PDP3, along with my homemade sling, always in ready position.

BC folding

BC folder 2

now i have a tasco 4x32, pics soon.

i just found a used ruger 10/22 standard model for $150 today. im planning on getting it and putting a co-polymer barrel($100 at gun show), houge overmold stock($45-50 also gunshow), walmart bipod (39.99), my gunsmith billybob can hook me up with trigger work($30), bolt buffer($5), i was given a leupold 2-7x33 very nice especially when i send it to leupold to fix the rattling in it. all together thats bout $ 375

my question is does all this sound good? should i not get some of these parts and go for some other ones? thanks for any info, i want to get it right the first time.

Go here catalog.jgsales.com/ and get the clerke/hogue combo for $110. Then get a replacement hammer from here www.volquartsen.com/ for $40. Then go here rimfirecentral.com/forums/ if you have any other questions or need info on how to put the hammer in. Takes about 15 minutes by the way.

i got the taking the 10/22 apart memorized by now. so the hammer shouldnt take bout 3 min to put in. im just trying to think bout what scope mount should i use? i like weaver rings and the way they mount to the reciever. should i go all out and get the mount that attaches to the barrel to? or will the weaver rail for the reciever work just fine?

Why buy a used 10/22 for $150 when you can get a brand new one from walmart for $166? just wondering...

Weaver's are fine. If you look at the pics of the suped up ones on rimfirecentral, not many of them are cantilevered(sp?). Kooter is right, $150 used is pretty high.

the rifle is new, about 5-6 months old. bout 1k rds maybe 2k rds through it. so it is practially brand new. i forgot to add that. i am gettin it from a friend of mine. he is in a "finacial bind" right now and needs some money. it is coming with 1 facorty mag. 3 steel lips 10 rd mags, 4x32 scope and a black and red soft case that has Ruger 10/22 on it.
