    Now I have a rifle and some parts.
    I want to have 2 rifles.

    I customized my 10/22 SS Carbine.
    I have the original:
    Barrel
    Stock
    Bolt
    Rod and set of Springs

    I want to use the left-over parts to build another running gun.
    I think all I need are the Receiver and Trigger Group to make the rifle complete.

    Can I go cheap?

    If I go with high Dollar parts I would change them into the custom I have now and just rebuild the old rifle from it's parts.

    Comments and parts Brands reviews/sources would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    You never "go cheap" in buying parts and assembling a firearm.
    What you are missing are the expensive parts, and to purchase them separately will probably set you back more than if you buy another rifle.

    I got an e-mail notice from Midway that the Ruger brand Trigger Groups were in stock and bought one for $49.
    Depending on how it is, I may send it to StalkingBear and let him do his magic.

    The Receiver I'm looking at is by Elite for $199.
    Kidd makes Receivers but they cost more and I'm confused with the options and don't know if I need them.
    My Bolt and Rod/Spring ***. are by Kidd.

    As far as buying a new 10/22, which is not in my equation, cheaper than what I'm doing, is easier to say than do.
    Any 10/22 for sale around here is at a premium.
