You should be able to buy a new 10/22 for around $200. or maybe a bit less. Shoot it stock for a while. Then you can make changes as you want at a rate that's affordable. The idea is to have some fun.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams
