Many years ago I owned a bicentennial model 10/22 (1976) and I mounted a cheap scope on it using carpenter's hand tools and my eye for placement and level . During 31 of the last 38 years I was armed with various handguns almost 24/7 in 28 countries around the world so that accounts for my interest in handguns, particularly semi autos. I also have extensive experience with shotguns, assault weapons, and a few submachine guns. But it's clear to me now that I lack the tools and the expertise to properly mount a scope. So here's what I've decided: I ordered a Leupold VX-1 Rimfire 2-7X28mm scope and DNZ Denutz Ruger 10/22 low mount 1" scope tube and got a referral to a very experienced gunsmith. If I'm missing something I would appreciate a heads up in that regard. Oh yeah, I've already got laser stuff for sighting and a membership with a local outdoor range.
The DNZ I have came with instructions that were very clear about no thread locker. My 7 mag hasn't shook it loose so you might be ok on a .22 I believe you will be happy with it, and it is probably much stronger than the receiver holes.

It all depends on what you want the rifle to look like and do. Boyds has some very nice laminate stocks for about $100. Other than that there are so many after market stocks and accessories for the 10-22 it is mind boggling. The 10-22 is probably the most accessorized firearm in the world. Pick a theme and go with it. I would also recommend a good trigger or trigger job. Mine is wearing a TRS25 and a modified Butler Creek stock. I did install a Hornet trigger. I would change stocks to a Boyds Evolution if I were to mount a scope but that is my choice and not necessarily yours.

+1 on the Boyd's stocks. The blazer is a pretty radical looking stock that is intended for off hand type shooting. Very good ergonomics, designed to be scoped, very much copied by everyone else.They have a couple others based on the same idea. The raptor is a more modern version with a flat forearm to allow it to be shot off a bench more effectively. Lots of laminate color options if you like them. If not black undercoat for instant tacticool look...

Personally I like the thumbhole varmitter stock they make. You have to order it uninletted and make the cuts yourself as they don't offer it in 10/22 as a standard option. This makes a very superior bench rifle. Looks best with 20" heavy barrels.

Also check out www.rimfirecentral.com its specific to the 10/22's. Lots of good ideas and advice there.

My personal goto 10/22 is my stainless takedown wearing a Butler creek folding stock. 3lb Trigger job, full size 3x9-40 scoped, bedded action and rear cross pinned. Not quite a bench gun it still makes a ragged 1/2" hole at 50 yards. Once i manage to come up with an aftermarket barrel and machine it to fit the takedown it should do better. Out of the six 10/22's in my gun cabinet it gets twice the trigger time of the others. Just a fun gun to hunt and shoot, very light to carry and the takedown makes it a joy to pack. Who says progress is bad?!?
