    Well, actually it is. :p The girlfriend bought me a Ruger 10/22 for my birthday this past weekend. But me being me I won't be leaving this one alone. As a matter of fact I plan on modifying this as much as possible. But being that I no diddly do da about 22's how about some pointers in the right direction?

    What I would like out of this is almost a show piece target rifle. It may see some critter hunting but I am more interested in excellent range results. So where do I begin?

    :D

    Allright, Jon. Quit showing this gun and making me jealous. I shot a 10-22 this weekend at Bear's Meet and Greet. A very nice gun, indeed.

    I shot a pink 10/22 with a full auto sear a few years back at a local forum meet.

    Pink or not full auto is always manly :p

    As far as your gun you could go the basic route
    Houge overmold stock and a bull barrel/trigger job and shoot awesome groups

    You can get a thumbhole custom painted stock and do the same thing for the showy style

    Houge stock will set you back about $70 with the laminated thumbhole running 150.

    So the question is how far you want to take it?

    $400 10/22 or 900?

    Or you could just buy a Marlin model 60 and shoot it :D.

    I like that stock! :eek: Who makes it? :D I am still on the fence but I may look into suppressing this one. At the very least a really nice stock, heavy barrel and a Stalkingbear trigger job.

    Ruger 10/22

    I have my Dad's 10/22 and I have no idea when he bought it or it's age but he installed a Burris big rifle scope on it and it is a tack driver ! I have stuck with the Ruger 10 round mags and carry a spare. Some of the after market high capacity magazines are plastic junk unless they have metal feed lips.


    The action its self needs cleaning and lubrication "every few years", the removal of the barrel, although simple is not required, But the bore like any firearm's deserves occasional cleaning.

    MidwayUSA and others have many custom parts but I have kept mine as it was made, I doubt they will ever wear out !

    The things i noticed about these stocks inless you have unusally large hands they can be a pain to use i dont really care for them. maybe some modification to the thumb whole grip to make it's cirucomfrence smaller it might work a little better. thats just my opinion though

    You could forgo the hassle and get a Marlin 60.
