    You would be way better off asking over at rimfirecentral. Also if a treaded reciever is what you want too. Shooters dicount has a SS reciever with rear lug too for 174oo but did not pay to much attention to details. Guess you want to build a unlimited ? Both ours are built off used rugers. Give Kidd a good look over too.

    He said he's trying to stay cheap. Kidd receivers are not cheap.

    Volquartsen. There isn't even a point to buying one from Ruger if you want precision.

    Or just snag an older pre-2000 Marlin 60 or 795...it'll do the job for less than $150...assuming you can shoot that well ;)

    lonyaeger He said he wanted a reciever, not a ruger only reciever, a 10/22 reciever. It is for a target 10/22. Nothing is cheap about that over all. The difference between a 125 dollar used stock reciever some has and a 200 to 300 dollar new custom reciever ain't much over all. Still have to fill in all the missing parts. !!!!! That to many would still mean a home brewed custom from the ground up. 1 part at a time and save some money. 600 dollars instead of 1000 dollars.

    Now with a bit more info from moneymaker17 wanting only a 2" 100 yard rifle. BUY a marlin model 60 and put a muller 4-14 scope on it. Instant 2" 100 yard rifle with good ammo. OR buy a old beat ruger and see what you can do with it. If no good spend 95 bucks to have the barrel recrown and rechambered and your ready for the same scope and ammo. It will shot 2" or less.

    Your will be hard pressed to find a just a reciever for sale.

    There are a few people who sell bare Ruger 10/22 receivers. You can also just pick up an inexpensive 10/22 at Walmart or used, or one of the other makers receivers. I picked up an inexpensive one from Walmart to use as the basis of a homebuilt custom gun. Simple, and easy, and it should do a lot better than 2” at 100 yds.

    If you are trying to be competitive and stay cheap, forget it. A competitive target build will cost you. You could get a good used Anshutz for less. I shot in a turkey shoot last year. I had 5X and placed 4th on group size. 1st was a custom 10-22 the guy had over $1000 in not counting the scope. 2nd was an Anshutz. 3rd was the same 10-22 (son & father). 4th was my CZ 452. I had one flyer that opened my group from .3 to .6 and it was my fault. Without the flyer I still would not have won. The range was 25 yards with CCI 40 grn Minimags. Everyone shot the same ammo. I have seen several 10-22 builds that were competitive and they were all over $1k. You could buy a brick of regular ammo for the price of one 50 round box of the top target ammo. The Ruger receiver is aluminum and wont properly support a fully floated heavy barrel. The top guns are built with an after market stainless steel receiver with integral milled scope mounts. The $100 barrels dont cut it. You will be looking at $300+. A trigger group will cost close to that much also.

    I am a member of St. Charles Sportsman’s Club in Waldorf. They lost their outdoor range when they lost their lease, but they still have an indoor range that I use regularly. I have rejoined the Greenbelt Gun Club, part of the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore, so I have access to an outdoor range at Marriottsville, NW of Baltimore, even though it is an 82 mi. drive to the range. Today is my day off and I am heading to the range. I can shoot stuff there that I can’t shoot on the indoor range, like my .500 S&W JRS.

    JTJ never did think much of shooting matchs with the ammo supplied by the range. Those high dollar rifles with a good ammo or even a cheap ammo of there choice can shoot some extrememly tight groups. Set a price for the ammo. If cci mini's let the price be 10 dollars per 100 rounds. My custom will shoot cci standards ,same price. 1/3rd smaller in group size than mini's. federal 711B at under 5 dollars abox will go closer to .225. at 25 yards. Have'n to use a spec ammo or atleast a cheap spec ammo really does not make anything fair at aleast list a choice of what you can use. or offer several.
