It would be much easier to simply buy a new 10/22 rifle as others have pointed out. OTOH, you said you had considered making your Ruger into a SBR and that is still not a bad idea if you don't mind spending more in the long run for a one of a kind rifle. Simply replace your current stock with a standard size 10/22 stock and you have a gun that's more compact but still has a standard length butt stock for accuracy. The downsize is that you'd be creating a SBR so you'd need to apply for the Class III stamp and then wait for around 6 months. OTOH, you'd have a unique, one of a kind gun. I recently did something similar with a Kel-Tec PLR-16 pistol. Got the stamp and turned my PLR into a 9" SBR using K-T butt stocks and parts already made to fit their SU-16 series rifles. Also, I can add options like a vertical fore grip without applying for another stamp from the ATF since my gun is now a rifle. Just a suggestion and another option available to you.

From the way I understand it you can go from a pistol to a 16" barreled rifle but you can not go back to a pistol if that's done. You can not go to a pistol if you ever had a long barrel and stock on your firearm.

Very good- and correct. You can make a rifle from a pistol, but making a pistol FROM a rifle requires a tax stamp.
