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.

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.

Ruger 10/22 Project

A few days ago I picked up a cheap Ruger 10/22 rifle to do some work on. The cheap model has a basic hardwood stock and light sporter contoured barrel. My plan is to swap out the stock with a synthetic one, possibly folding. The barrel will get switched out for a heavy contour bull barrel, threaded of course. This will serve as the primary host for my .22 lr silencer. The receiver comes drilled and tapped for scope installation, so it is just a matter of picking out a suitable scope.

The basic plan is to turn it into a fun and cheap yet highly customizable platform.
