Default I want a Custom Ruger 10/22 (I think)

I like the idea of a semi auto 22 and some of the custom ones look pretty nice. I've had regular 10/22s and like them. I've found the one I had to be quite accurate with a cheep scope at about 50 yards and would like to get one that is better. There are guys out there that will build one for me, Clark and Dale Time Gun Works to name 2. Pretty costly but might be worth it to me depending on how far I would be willing to go. A 20 in. fluted stainless barrel, custom receiver and a good trigger would be the first requirements. I'd add other do dads depending on the benefit and the cost, maybe a thumb hole stock. Of course I'd need a good scope too.
Any one out there have any of these 10/22s and what do you think of them? Anyone else build them that are worth looking at?

The 10/22 is probably (IMHO) the best semi-auto .22 out there. Parts are everywhere and there's no end to the customization you can do to one. Super accurate and extremely reliable. Get one. Every gun owner should have one.

The 2 I built over the winter a few years ago.

Wifes has all standard parts with a Clark Custom trigger job that breaks at 21/2 lbs. and a standard Green Mountain barrel, Will shoot one hole at 25 yards.

Mine, same internals with a Clark Custom trigger job and a Clark Custom barrel with muzzle brake and a Tactical solutions extended mag release. Did I need the brake? heck no but it lookes good
Shoots 1 hole at 25 yards.

Free floated the barrels in Boyd Stocks.

I did months of research before building and found out the only difference between $350 and $80 dollar parts were pretty paint. Paint is of no
interest to me, cost and function were. I would have no qualms taking either of these to a national match.

Build one yourself, it is easy and alot of fun.

My Only regret is I bought my stock before I found this one.. (Apache Gold Stock)

Default Building a ustom 10-22

Hi ALS11

RIght now I am in the middle of building 3 custom 10-22's. I have been around guns my whole life, ( since I was 10 anyway, not I'm 54 :-). The first one is a WWII M1 Carbine replica. It is the Carbine stock that is an EXACT replica of the WWII carbine, BUT....has a Volksquartson Hammer, Sear, ( 3lb pull ) a Hold Open Bolt device, a No Dak Spud Picatinny rail with built in Replica WWII rear Peep SIght ( adjustable ), a 16" threaded E.R.Shaw custom barrel, Replica Front sight, matching Sling, Stainless Steel stock bolt, Extended Magazine Release ( I have not decided on which one, I have several to choose from, a Gunsmither Barrel Clamp ( which eliminates barrel drop that the stock clamp causes, and is being Duracoated in Colt Gray color, which is pretty cool. Its like a titanium or charcoal gray, medium color. Not too dark, and not too light...just right :-). I have not decided if I am going to put glass on it or not, either a scope but most likely a Red Dot, Ohhh....an Exact Extractor, new Firing Pin Spring, polished bolt, and probably a few other things I cannot remember at this point. I still want to put a Recoil Pad on it to increase the length of pull on it ( even the original .30 cal. is kind of short ).

The second one has a Black Hogue overmodelded stock ( this will be a M24 Replica which is the army's or was, the sniper rifle for the past 30 years ) a Volksquartson Tensioned barrel in Black with a threaded tip, I have not decided on the muzzle device as of yet, but am considering a Tacticol Solutions 32 hole muzzle break in black ( available in silver also ), upgraded Extractor, a Polished and Radiused Bolt with either a Jewl or Black/Dk Blue color that has the face machined to a .425 proper depth for exact seating and accuracy, again, Volkquartson or Power Custom Trigger internals with a 3 lb pull, a Extended Magazine release using a lever ( Brand New Kidd parts check it out on their webb site ) Scope Rail on top of receiver, have not decided yet but either a Kidd, Volksquartson or Primary Weapons Systems Tensioned Barrel in Black without a threaded tip, Gunsmither Barrel Clamp, Stainless Steel Stock Screw, and either Flat Tactical Black, Duracoat Urban Camoflage or Urban Mirage Flage ( I will be experimnenting with the Camo's on an old stock first before deciding. I may have left out a few other upgrades and there is still time for changing things around. I am building this one in Black, but can also do in O.D.Green . If O.D.Green is chosen then either a Tacticol Solutions barrel with orwithout a threaded tip or possible a Alumalight barrel without a threaded tip will be used. Could be ordered with threaded for extra $$.

And the third will be ( the Easiest way to describe it is if you saw Top Shot's last completed show where Dustin was the overall winner) they had a contest where they used a Volksquartson rifle that has a threaded thumbhole stock with finger groves in the hole, in very sharp Blue/Gray-Silver color, most all the same upgrades as above concerning screws, clamps, trigger group parts, etc, but this time using a top notch bright poished Stainless Steel Barrel, fluted with or without a threaded tip ( as on some the thread can cost an extra $60, ouch...) and a as yet undecided muzzle part, with or without a glass, Scope vs Red Dot.

The last two I have about 50% of the parts so far, but can be modified a good bit before finish, but the first is about 90% completed. Just awaiting more Duracoat paint and need to install the recoil pad. I took it to the range to break in the barrel with some Wolf Match arget ammo, and in less than 50 shots was printing .60 groups at 25 yards. This is a very accurate gun and I am pretty sure it can print less than a 1/2 inch group at 50 yards once everything is installed for good and tuned in.

Let me know if you have any interest in any of them or any questions in general I can help you with.

Well, I haven't put much into my rifle except a new stock and a red dot sight, but by golly those two things have given a new life to our old 10/22. I'd say that if you were going to customize any rifle, or get started customizing rifles, that you start with a 10/22. Beautiful, simple, hundreds of options and except for a Kalashnikov it's probably the easiest gun I've taken apart and cleaned.

Here's my 10/22 inside of the custom gutted airsoft stocks

Muzzelite and MG42 are aftermarket stocks that you can readily buy.

Man you should think about making those stocks and selling them for the 10/22. I would buy one of those fn2000

Lets see if I have this right. You take a perfectly good $200 gun and spend $400 to $700 on it to get a $300 gun. One of the lgs had a used tricked out 10-22 for $350 and I am sure he did not give that much for it. It included a scope, laminate stock and heavy fluted barrel. I did not even bother to pick it up to check the trigger.

Yeppers! Same thing folks do to a Chevy Nova...

And it never hurts to check out the Volquartsen webpages...they make some sweet customs...
which are worth way more than a Ruger 1022 even after being shot.
