I like the SSS Aquilas myself. Nice round if you can get it to stabilize correctly.

Ive been thinking about one of the 33" 1-12 octagon green mountain barrels for one of my 10/22 actions. Finish it up as a kentucky squirrel rifle with an old black powder style stock and cast brass furniture. Maybe even brass plate the razor receiver to match. Add a Kidd reciever tang and a set of highwall style peeps, mill off the rail mount. Call it an old school Appleseed rifle...

Ps probably end up doing this in 22mag or 17HMR if I go into this build any further.

BTW, here are a few shots of the Chiappa with the Spikes lower installed. When I finally get my Class III stamp (sent in the paperwork in April) and can install the Gemtech Outback II suppressor I bought on either this upper or my M&P 15-22, there won't be a squirrel or rabbit safe for miles 'cause they won't here me coming!

Nice 22lr M-fourgery. I wasn't too crazy about a steel, full weight barrel and forged upper/lower when I built mine, but I like the look of yours. What kind of weight did yours finish out at?

I am currently waiting on my tax stamp for my pistol/SBR 300 blk build. As soon as that comes in I'm planning on a titanium AAC can rated for 338 lapua mag/300 win mag. Nice thing about cans, is that you can buy too big and use it for any lesser round. Just add the correct AAC flashhider/can mount. I had a chance to handle the titanium can and the weight made me a believer. No more nose heavy guns! :sly:

The .22 weighs in at 7lb as you see it in the last two pictures. I have a 300AAC upper from Diamondback that I also use with the Spikes lower. I use most of the same style accessories like the sights, light and thumb rest so the muscle memory doesn't change. If you didn't notice, the dustcover has 300 AAC engraved on it. I had it done to all my uppers (.22, 5.56, 300 AAC, 7.62) so I have a visual reminder of the specific caliber on the upper I'm using at the time.
