    I am finding all sorts of cool things.

    Anyways, this is just going to be a personal thread for me to organize my thoughts with, and I will have a few questions and seek advice before I buy anything. I plan on selling my Hi point 995 to fund this.... I didnt realize how fast I would breeze though that 9mm. I think .22 is my caliber :D The kel-tec and gsg-5 in my other thread are awesome guns, but no where to be found. Ill get them someday. For now ill use resources that are available.

    First off, I am looking at buying this
    http://www.thegunsource.com/store/item/7819_Ruger_Rifles/Shotguns__1022_22LR_185_BL.aspx

    This is the first stock I am looking into. Really spendy, and I dont understand what the different options are
    https://www.gunkings.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=92&products_id=501

    I dont fully understand the options with that. I would want my gun to look exactly like the black one in that picture. What options would I need to choose to get it to look like that?

    Also, is this stock overly expensive? Will the factory magazines work with this? I want to get a 25 round mag that would work with the factory stock, and someday even a 50 round drum. And will the stock barrel, or do I need to get a different barrel as well? I have read that some stocks will only work with I think its a bull barrel or something.


    Here is just another link I would like to keep for future reference.

    I've got quite a bit of time behind a 10/22 and, other than the short LOP, I'm pretty happy with the stock that Ruger puts on them.

    To make yours look like the picture though, you'll want to add the UTG ergo grip and the 12 1/2 inch free float tube. I can't figure out who makes that butt stock, but it look a lot like an ACE skeleton stock, which I don't see listed as an option.

    Well, first off, I have to say I am not sure that Nordic kit is a "drop in" for an average 10/22 action.

    It would appear you have to strip the 10/22, the take the factory action and bed it in their lower assembly to be able to accept the stock and fore ends like you would do with an AR Platform.

    As for the stock, what is your specific question? The pistol grip has two choices, ERGO ( which is a brand name you can look up ) and black plastic.

    The butt stock is either a 4 position or 6 position collapsible, like on tactical M4/AR's

    The foreend is being offered as free floated, which is better for accuracy. YHM is Yankee Hill Machine and they make very good products, so if you went that route, and accuracy is your ultimate goal, that would be the direction I would suggest.

    Having said that, this a .22lr - it's not like you are building a 500 yard varmint shooter. A bone stock Ruger, with a trigger job and some glass bedding will probably shoot just as well as one of those expensive kit jobs. Were talking 100 yards or so here....:rolleyes:

    Wow that does look like a really good price. Which do you think is a better made stock, or is just purely personal choice? This one or the one I suggested below.



    -dillinger, thianks and i understand what you say. Some things just needed clairification. However when my friend pointed out that I still have to buy almost another $100 in parts pistol grip, barrel shroud and butt plate) then I said forget it when the total was about $300.



    So, he built his 10/22 and he still has his stock stainless tapered barrel. I can use it if I can find a breech mechanism and then all I need is the stock. And I wont need to waste money on an entire gun when I will only rip it in half anyways.

    So, because I can make this cheaper then I thought I am going to keep my Hi point and get a Ruger as well.

    So, ATI makes stocks for both the guns. On ebay, I will buy them both and do combined shipping to say like $8 (anything is worth it to me.)
    http://cgi.ebay.com/9mm-HI-POINT-99...14&_trkparms=72:1205|66:2|65:12|39:1|240:1318

    combined with

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ATI-RUGER-10-22...36258QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1713.m153.l1262

    This stock for the ruger will work with hi cap magazines right? meaning the 25 round banana clips and the 50 round drum?

    So that way, I have the stock I want on the hi point, and a pretty cool stock on the 10/22. So the only thing I need with that is the breech system. I would like a heavy fluted barrel but it wont fit with this stock, and at the moment I dont want to spend the money on a barrel thats $150 +


    I know this is only a .22lr. IfI could shoot a quarter at like 25 yards id be a happy camper. With out a scope..


    So all in all. I just need to find a breech system, preferably brand new. Can anyone help

    Lol, yeah. They look pretty sweet. I was leaning towards the ATI one because of the price. I wonder if that one is worth the extra 40-50 dollars???


    and BTW I cant find breech systems anywhere!!!!!!

    Hey thanks. Great link, lots of fun to look thru.



    So, I think my best bet is to just buy a new rifle, and start modifications from there. Anyone disagree?

    If you really only want the receiver, you may look around for a used a rifle and strip it for the receiver. Used ones are still (relatively) cheap.

    You can buy a bare receiver that is compatible with all Ruger and after market 10/22 parts from Volquartsen, Tactical Solutions (X Ring), MOA and others, in aluminum and stainless steel. This route may be cost prohibitive though since aside from the MOA offering, they are pretty pricey.

    The MOA steel receiver has a rear bedding lug (unlike a factory Ruger), which may cause problems for you given your choice of stocks. Some of the others have the rear lug too. Just something to think about if you choose one of the non Ruger receivers.

    Another plus for the used Ruger is that Ruger has recently started using plastic for the trigger housings on new rifles. Guys that mod their own triggers are snapping up older model aluminum trigger ones since the plastic ones apparently don't lend themselves too well for trigger/ sear/ pin work. Aftermarket housings are kind of pricey as well. Brownells used to sell Ruger factory aluminum ones but I don't know what there inventory is now since the plastic ones are now standard.

    Thanks for that. The only site I have seen with the receivers is Tatical Solutions, and those are 350 each. I'm going to give the other sites a shake down, and keep my eye open for a good used rifle.

    MOA Corp. has their stainless steel ones for $170 (Brownells.com). Volquartsen will be in the same price range as the Tac Sol, maybe a little cheaper.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but MOA corp only offers a blank stripped receiver. No internals.. Or am I missing something? Or do I order each individual internal part from brownells.com?

    Either way, I dont think i'm ready to full scale gunsmith :p

    And everything from the Volquartsen site is 200+. I can get a the full gun for 199 at the local gun shop.

    Hmmm..decisions decisions.

    Well, I have to say I really love the look of this gun

    http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1471395&postcount=34

    With the 22'' barrel its much better. Imagine the other 18.5'' barrel with out the compensator, or muzzle flash suppressor at the end. To me, its far to stubby and looks extremly ugly.

    For a drop in from stock gun, to a new stock, the ATI one is going to be my choice. I think mayber later on after I can get a longer barrel I will look at the Tapco stock. Unless someone can find a barrel for a decent price (I sure cant.. best I can do is 20'' @ $135) I am going to go with the ATI stock.

    What do you guys think? Any input? Other ideas?

    it says in the article that all barrels will work stock and aftermarket.The AR22 STOCK (shown with optional pistol grip,buttstock, and VTAC forearm in 9.2' and 12.5")


    A new and unique stock for your Ruger 10/22
    Doesn't just look like an AR-15, it looks AND feels like an AR-15! In fact, this stock is ergonomically identical to your AR-15 rifle.
    Drop in assembly, no gunsmithing required.
    Accepts any AR-15 Butt stock, hand grip and Free Float tube, as well as any factory or after market barrels made for the 10/22
    Excellent for Training!
    3 pieces included: Main Body, Scope Rail & Forearm Adaptor
    Note:::: if using 4 rail handguard. A rear sight will not line up with a front sight unless front sight is installed with optional spacer( not yet avaiable)


    Ruger & 10/22 are Registered Trade Marks of the Sturm, Ruger & Co., AR-15 is a Registered Trade Mark of Colt Manufacturing Company., AR22 is a Trade Mark of Nordic Components, Inc

    its all spelled out for ya right there bro

    Yup, the receivers from MOA, as well as Volquartsen and Tac Sol are just empty receivers. You would have to get a bolt, op rod and trigger pack seperately. That's why I mentioned that this route may be cost prohibitive.

    As far as barrels go, unless you really want a heavier after market barrel, keep an eye on the classifieds at Rimfirecentral.com. There's a factory 20" on there now for 50 bucks, and a 22" Green Mountain for $100.

    I put a hold on a ruger 10/22 here in town. $226 on hold till friday.

    Blued receiver and barrel, metal trigger and guard with a laminated wood stock. Very nice. I think I will pull the trigger on it to start this project off, but I wanted a few more days of research first.

    CAn you link me? I cant find it. I only see the 20'' stock barrel.
