10/22 Stock Is Here!

The Hogue 10/22 stock finally got here from AAC! The bad news is it has to sit for a while because I have to travel for work. That will give me some time to keep looking for barrels though. I still haven’t found the one I want, but I haven’t put a lot of effort into it either. When I get back and get settled in I will work on doing a writeup on switching it over.

Glove Strap

Empty Glove Strap

This weekend’s simple project is a glove strap. I have six spare pairs of gloves in my bag and no good way to keep them together. Two of the pairs are identical gloves but in different sizes and I need a quick way to locate a pair and get them out.

What I came up with is a piece of parachute cord and a cord lock. That’s it. Nothing else.

Full Glove StrapI think I’m going to make up a few extras and put them on the gloves I keep in my pockets too. I usually keep one pair that I wear on each call in one set of pockets and a spare pair that I don’t wear too often in another pocket.

Also this weekend, I picked up a set of tools to keep in my pockets. I’ll do a separate post about those and the building of a pocket organization system.

Ruger 10/22 Stock

I finally settled on a stock (for now) for my Ruger 10/22 project. I decided on a Hogue Over Molded stock I picked up from Advanced Armament for $40. Besides some nice silencers, turns out they have quite a selection of other accessories. I also picked up a scope rail from them as it turns out the stock rail for the 10/22 doesn’t fit the rings on my scope. Seems to me like a good reason to buy a new scope as well.

I was planning ahead when getting this stock – it is cut for a .920 bull barrel profile. With some more searching, I will find a black or blued heavy contour threaded barrel to stick on it.

With any luck, this project will be finished up this year and I’ll be ready to start the next one.

10/22 Project Update

A quick update on the 10/22 project. It is on hold for now. I can’t seem to find the barrel I want to use. I want a heavy contour barrel with a threaded muzzle. It would be ideal if I could find this with a spiral flute, but that doesn’t seem likely. Perhaps one will turn up soon and this project will be back on track. I have found the stock so I’m making small steps.
