    I got a 10/22 a couple of years ago, and I went the tacticool rout. It weighs around 15 pounds now, it has a 3x9 scope, a bx 25 mag tapco stock, heavy barrel, forgrip, bipod, a red dot, and a flashlight. Anyone else have a gun like this. I striped it, all I could do is bench shoot it so now it's just the stock, the red dot, and the bx 25 mag.

    Can you post a pic? A 15 lb. rifle is waaay more than I want to be hefting and shooting.

    Your title sums it up!

    You managed to take "tacticool" to a non-tactical weight!

    Take solace in your retreat condition is, at least, directionally correct.

    Personally, I have this thing about keeping things basic.

    I was issued a bunch of junk that I just kept in my pack. The only thing I mounted to my SAW was the cool red dot/visible laser sight.

    yup get a lightweight barrel but in the bull dimensions. I made the same mistake on my 10/22.

    Suggestions:
    Replace the plastic fore grip with on that with one that has the Y bi-pod that slides up into the grip. that way you won't need that heavy bi-pod, it is out of the way when you don't want to use it.

    ditch the scope or the red dot, decide on which one you need.
    get a compact variable power scope if you go that route.

    Just my ideas, your own may vary

    What kind of barrel is that?

    I have a 28" GM rifle barrel in stainless and its 6lbs. Its strictly a bench gun though.

    It's an 18 inch bull barrel from shooters ridge, cheapest bull barrel I could find.

    I plan on getting a compact 3-9x scope and go with an aluminum bull barrel from tactical solutions and lose the bipod all together.

    With all due respect, the following video is an AR that is "over done".

    Does all that crap on those guns make them shoot farther? Faster?

    Only accessories a 22 needs is a scope , suppressor and ammo.

    That is why I stripped my 10-22 back down to the basic rifle except for the trigger and a light weight stock. I have a TRS25 on it. All my AR has on it is a scope and it weighs 8 lbs.
