    I got a ruger 10/22 with a butler creek threaded heavy barrel with smith industries flash hider and synthetic stock. A few scratches on the stock. Volquartsen hp trigger kit, volquartsen extended charging handle, weaver mount with a barska 4-12x50mm scope. scope and trigger kit only about a month old.

    Why are you using a 50mm objective? How far are you shooting and what ammo are you using?

    Same as a standard 10/22 dollar wise.

    As far as the scope goes, it's something I had laying around I thought I would use. I know it's a little over kill. Ammo, it depends. If we are just out plinking I shoot federal. Of we are shooting for bulls eyes I get some better ammo. I'm looking to sell it and wondering if all my add ons help the grand total. I was thinking $400 bucks??

    I'm not going to down your rifle, but this kind of reminds me of the Geo Prism I saw in a man's yard for $6K. He had done all kinds of work to it (touted as being the most powerful 3 cylinder on the road) but in the end, it was still a $600 car. Admittedly, the absolute nicest Prism I had ever seen, with leather seats, slick paint job, and 20" spinners... But....

    You could get 400, but I think your best bet would be to take it back to the stock configuration (except maybe the barrel, that may be more effort than it's worth) and sell it at a more consistent price for a used 10/22, and then try to sell the parts separate. That's just my opinion. I also know for a fact that there are people who would give you what your asking, or maybe try to talk you down about fifty bucks.

    And to echo hi wall, best of luck to you. It's doable for the price your asking, but it may not be easy.

    Wow! That was fast.
    Have you considered a career in retail? :D

    Have you looked into milsurp rifles? That is plenty to get a nice old Mosin Nagant in 7.62x54r and a couple thousand rounds of surplus ammo. They are tough to scope, though.

    Snatch up an sks. There a blast to shoot. I got one a few months ago and it's became my new favorite.

    I thought about a Sks. I Already have lots of rounds for it. ( I have a hungarian ak 47) my old man put a tapco stock on his Sks and it shoot great. I might go another route and look at the Ruger LCR in 357. My cc permit should be in the mail.
