I have an old (10+ years old!) blued Ruger 10/22 that's just gathering dust. It's the standard model.

I have a first-generation Bushnell HOLOsight that's also gathering dust, since I bought an Aimpont Comp-M XD and an EOTech 512.

I figure I might as well put the two together.

The rail that came with the 10/22 is clearly too narrow for a standard Weaver setup.

Can you recommend a high-quality blued Weaver mount for the Ruger 10/22? I am willing to pay for a quality mount. I'd prefer something that didn't require professional installation but if it's the only way to go, I will do it.

Thanks!

Justin

Actually Midway has Volquartsen Picatinny spec rails. I wish I'd have gotten one instead of my Power Custom weaver rail, so the mounts (if more than one) would line up for interchangability with my other guns..........

If you need extra height, the Power custom is the way to go. Those things are almost 3/4" thick! If you don't want the height and want it closer to the bore, the Weaver T09 mount is a direct mount with no drilling, no fitting, uses all 4 screws. I have built 8 10/22's and prefer the Weaver. If I need more height, I use taller rings.

FYI, do NOT over tighten the screws! You are screwing into aluminum. Just snug them up. Use red loctite if you plan on never removing it and blue loctite if you think you might.

Thanks guys. I am looking at:

- Volquartsen picatinny rail from Midway

- Bushnell HOLOsight (as mentioned above)

- Green Mountain 18" or 16" (undecided) fluted barrel ... Shooter's Discount has the 16" in stock but not the 18". I am going to use this as a plinker (mostly freehand shooting) so I'm leaning towards the 16" anyway but it would be nicer to have a bit more in the fps department with the 18". I may wait and see when they get it back in stock.

- Undecided on the stock but I want something either in black synthetic or gray laminate, in a sporter style. I have heard Butler Creek and Hogue stocks are a bit too "flexy" so I am avoiding them. I may try a Bell & Carson (if they have one I like) or maybe a Fajen.

I am a n00b when it comes to 10/22s so I hope this works out.

The 10/22 is like a disease that gets into your blood. It keeps bagging for more and more add ons and improvements until you look at it one day and almost shit yourself when you realize just how much time and money you've put into a friggin 10/22. I could have had a top of the line bolt gun for what my 10/22 has cost me. Oh well, maybe next time.

Haha, yeah I know what you mean. I'm trying to keep it relatively low key though. Who knows if I will be able to resist?

Here's my intended breakdown.

Stock Ruger 10/22: $0 (already acquired long, long, long ago)

Volquartsen picatinny rail, blue: $50

Green Mountain 18" fluted barrel: $110

Bushnell HOLOsight: $0 (already acquired long, long, long ago)

Stock: not sure, but I'd like a black or gray Bell & Carson Classic stock (if I could find one! grr): $150? Cannot find this stock anywhere!

Three Butler Creek steel-lip 25 round hi-caps: $90 (about $30 per mag)

So total damage will be around $400. If you factor in what I paid for the HOLOsight and the 10/22 I'm sure it would be a lot more, probably around $800!

Here is the stock you want for less than you are willing to pay from an awesome company. The picture shows it in advantage camo but if you read the description it says it is black. I have the B&C Anschutz stock on mine and love it. I also purchased it through Midway.

ETA: You had better hurry though if you want one right away as it says they have only 4 left.

I have to recommend the Hogue overmolded stocks. There is a good reason why they are one of the most common stocks you see on people's 10/22.

Thanks, I did not see that one at Midway.

No slam on Hogues intended, it's just that some people on rimfirecentral.com say they're a bit too "flexy".

VQ Pic rail is not MIL-STD spec, I returned mine a while back. They said they were working on making it MIL-STD specs, don't know if they've done it yet

I got a Weigand Combat Handguns MIL STD Pic rail, works like a champ.

Urk!

I ordered my VQ rail last nite. I'll let everyone know how it goes.

Also got 2 Butler Creek steel-lip 25 rd mags.
