The Ruger 10/22 is the rimfire rifle which most all others are compared. Most every like-minded survivalist I know owns one (or more). I have decided to add another 10/22 to my collection. Why? Why not! I love shooting the rimfire cartridge and in my preparedness-thinking mind another quality .22LR can’t hurt.
So…here is the question: How will I build this one?
The 10/22 is a very capable rimfire as it sits stock – accurate and extraordinarily reliable. I like the handling characteristics of many aftermarket stocks out there. I also like the high availability of many accessories for the 10/22. My goal with this project is to put together a “tactical-looking” Ruger 10/22 which will be fast handling, comfortable to shoot, accurate, enhanced capabilities regarding firepower – and again….pretty cool looking. This carbine very well might end up in the hands of my oldest son as he continues to develop his shooting skills.
Here are a few stock options I am looking at for this particular 10/22:
I also would like to mount a scope or possibly a red dot sight on it as well. Extended magazine release would be another addition. A few spare 10-rd factory magazines as well as some of the new Ruger BX-25 factory hi-cap magazines.
I plan this to be the first of a couple of 10/22 projects. I can still pick up a standard 10/22 for under $200 and accessories are generally inexpensive. As I work on this project – I will update everyone on progress made.
