Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

LOL. Cane.
Very nice 10/22, Bear.
I wish I had the money to mod mine.

S.S.

Nice, very nice..I'm a fan of big scopes on .22's. Why not??? The .22 scope sold are just so much junk. We have 4 .22's and they all have 3X9 scopes on them except for my Stevens, which has a 2X7. Also, nice wood you have there!!!

I realize it looks kind of goofy with that HUGE scope on there & want to replace it with a Leupold 3x-9x-32mm EFR AO compact, but the results speak for themselves. It's grouping well under 1/2" at 50 yards.
That's really nice.

Once the squirrels see that they will grab their nuts and get outa town.....

Shimmed hammer/trigger
Reworked trigger to 1.2 pound release
Installed adjustable takeup & overtravel in sear/trigger (own design)
Leupold Rifleman aluminum rings
Weaver T-09 base
Drilled back of receiver to clean from rear
Out of curiosity, how much would that work cost if I took a stock (wood) for custiomization (not artwork, just fitting) that involved the work you gunsmithed yourself? Say same action and and barrel. Don't include optics or rings or sighting. I do not know. Rifle (general 10/22 from Wally world), stock, barrel and weaver mount provided by customer.

Thanks, bear. Just give me a round #.

Great work Bear, love that stock. I also like all that wide open green stuff in the background. Don't have much of that here in the desert.

Thanks, bear. Got it.

I'm just trying to get a ball park figure what a certified and insured Gunsmith would charge for the work you did with the main components provided. Thanks again.
