Most of the people I've seen that modify 10/22s do it in the quest for more accuracy. I'm not sure you're aware but it's HIGHLY illegal to make your 10/22 ( or any other semiauto for that matter) fullauto. The law was changed in the 80s to disallow that to manufacture any full autos for general public use.

I actually did a complete loop. I started with a stainless steel 10/22 with a synthetic black stock. I bought all the bells and whistles, tactical stocks, mounts, scopes, etc..great accurate, reliable rifle. I soon realized that I had the same rifle in a 17hmr after spending a butt load of money. But I soon missed my rabbit, bare sight plinking gun. Bull barrels are to heavy to lug around and the tactical stocks are cool, but really unnecessary hiking through tight brush country. So my 10/22 is back in it's simplicity with the exception to the trigger assembly. There is something to be said about the simplicity and the reliability of the 10/22. This is my favorite .22 rifle.

Don't get me wrong, I love my 10/22. It is, in my opinion, the best deal there is for a .22 but I see no need to make it a pimp gun. It works just fine as is.
Im down for modifying too but the rifle itself is $239.00! After modding it you wind up putting out $600-$700 sometimes ! You could get one of those German sport rifles for $450 ! Most I would do is maybe a conventional bolt stop and a better trigger. Not that there is really anything wrong with the stock trigger, it's just being nitpicky .

Default Take a look at the Ruger SR-22

I would like to suggest you look at the Ruger SR-22 Rifle. Then take a look at IRON EAGLE TACTICAL - Accessory Rails for Ruger SR-22 & other rifles and pistols- Home Page. They have alot of accessouries so you can fix your rifle up anyway you want it. I have the Ruger SR-22 and my hole family enjoys shooting it.

I don't have a Ruger SR-22, but rather I built my own version since I had a 1/22 to start with. I picked up the Nordic Components AR-22 Receiver Chassis Kit, a Stoner Buffertube with 6 Postion Collapsable Buttstock, DPMS Vented Aluminum Free Float Tube (I had an AR-15 A2 Pistol Grip on hand) and put mine together.

I also shortened my factory 19 1/2" carbine barrel to 16 1/2" (cutting off the front sight in the process). I then had the diameter of my barrel immediately in front of the dovetail for the v block turned down so I could slip a Green Mountain Aero Shroud over my barrel to give it the look of a bull barrel without the weight.

I also installed a Volquartsen Custom Target Hammer as well as polished the sear and disconnector to get a really nice trigger pull.

This is my favorite .22. In fact it is my favorite .22 so much so that I am in the process of building another one but with a different barrel and buttstock.

The way I look at it is like this, yeah I could buy a different .22 LR Rifle for what I have invested but then it wouldn't be exactly what I wanted and I wouldn't have been able to build it myself. Part of this appeal is the project itself in being able to build a 10/22 the way you want it.

I know what your saying. An example would be this;
I know a few people {Not Many} who take their guns to the shop to get them cleaned !
I know do you believe it ? Where as a true gunny loves to clean and service their firearms themselves, like me. Gotcha !

Like you I took the standard s.s. 10/22 and put Volquartsen inards in it, a scope and replaced the tupperware stock with a nice wood one, but I left the factory barrel on it. I get nickle size groups at 50 yards using Federal 550 bulk ammo from Walmart. For me that's good enough to make me happy, I don't need a single ragged hole.

It's a nice gun:

That's nice snake ! If I was to modify mine I would do something like that, more on the classic line. I'd like to make mine look like a mini- M-14 with some nice walnut or laminated stocks. What you have there though is tempting, it looks like a sniper rifle. What kind of stock is on it ?
