It's not much of a project, just some fun with a new rifle.
I'm new to the 10/22 world. Am I right is assuming that, if you have a synthetic stock, no advantage to floating the barrel?

I don't know. I only have a rudimentary knowledge of the 10/22.

Here's some photos. I tried to get a shot of the fiber optics, but it just came out blurry. I'm thankful that I'm better with firearms than with a camera.

The hi viz sights are really popular here in France for hunting "en battue" (driven hunts for wild boar and deer).

Your rifle looks elegant, clean and simple, just how a rifle should be in IMHO, nice job...sure you don't want to take a scotch brite to it and then spray paint it camoflage?!!

Sweet! Doesn't look like a 10/22 fanboy's work at all!
