10/22 stocks
 
i like the s/s Evolution 10-22. My one question about stocks is, is there worse or better ones or is a stock just how you like to hold the gun? reason i asked if cause i looked at the s/s Evolution 10-22 and it said should fit any barrel size, also is it hard to transfer gun from stock to stock?

All you have to do is remove the barrel band by loosening 1 screw, removing the single action screw, putting the safety 1/2 way on, and lifting it out. Install the barreled receiver in the new stock by putting safety 1/2 way on and seat in the stock. Reinstall the action screw in the new stock and tighten.

I keep on hearing about rings, Seal rings or something? is the rings something i should replace/upgrade while changing stocks?

stalkingbear 10-06-2010 08:51 PM

There are no seal rings in a 10/22. Perhaps they're talking about scope mounting rings?

HomieDontUKnowMe 10-06-2010 09:16 PM

o ok.maybe i miss read or the rings were for another type of gun. without the 10/22 its self, to make it the best 10/22 i can for long range shooting, how much money will i spend into it? Not looking for a exact price but just a range so i know how much money to put aside for the 10/22.

It depends on what you consider long range. By 100 yards a .22LR has pretty much seen it's best. Sure I know of people that shoot them out to 200 and even 250 yards but that's not too common. Out of box (scoped) a 10/22 will shoot decent out to 50 yards or so. By changing barrel and stock you're only increasing accuracy. You'll make it more accurate at longer range-you won't be actually extending it's range. Figure around 200$ for a new 10/22, 120-130 for a Green Mountain barrel, and whatever the stock you like costs. That's not counting the scope & scope rings.

Thanks alot for taking the time and helping me out on my questions. 100yards to me is a good distance, being a new shooter im not going to go out there and try shooting 250yards away. gotta walk before you can run. i just want to make the best accurate .22 that i can make for around 100 maybe 150yards. What length barrel would you recommend? Just asking how do people get there 10/22 to shoot 250yards? what can you do to the rifle to get it that punch?

once again thanks alot for taking the time and helping me out with questions really appreciate it.

You will have to move up to a .22 center fire caliber to get any kind of accuracy at 250 yards. I use a 22-250Rem. and it does well..;):)

Nope,You just have to have a very calm day,and know how to adjust your scope or sights.
A 22lr bullet will shoot a hell of alot farther than 250yrds.They just don't have much energy at long ranges to kill many things.

I don't know about everyone else, but I enjoy the challenge of long range shooting with the .22 LR. It is very satisfying to hear the ping on steel at 2 to 3 hundred yards. It also makes for a relaxing day of cheap shooting.
