Default over did it

I got a 10/22 a couple of years ago, and I went the tacticool rout. It weighs around 15 pounds now, it has a 3x9 scope, a bx 25 mag tapco stock, heavy barrel, forgrip, bipod, a red dot, and a flashlight. Anyone else have a gun like this. I striped it, all I could do is bench shoot it so now it's just the stock, the red dot, and the bx 25 mag.

Your title sums it up!

You managed to take "tacticool" to a non-tactical weight!

Take solace in your retreat condition is, at least, directionally correct.

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!

Personally, I have this thing about keeping things basic.

I was issued a bunch of junk that I just kept in my pack. The only thing I mounted to my SAW was the cool red dot/visible laser sight.

yup get a lightweight barrel but in the bull dimensions. I made the same mistake on my 10/22.

Suggestions:
Replace the plastic fore grip with on that with one that has the Y bi-pod that slides up into the grip. that way you won't need that heavy bi-pod, it is out of the way when you don't want to use it.

ditch the scope or the red dot, decide on which one you need.
get a compact variable power scope if you go that route.

Just my ideas, your own may vary
