In this Part #3 and last post of the build – my newest version of the Ruger 10/22 is complete.
My goal with this project was to put together a rimfire carbine to use for inexpensive tactical training for myself as well as work with my two boys – ages 8 and 12. I wanted ergonomics somewhat similar to a typical “black rifle”. High capacity magazine was also a factor.
I like the Choate stock. It is a little long for my youngest son – so maybe I should have picked the version with a M4 adjustable stock. Anyways – the first outing I had shooting with my 8 year old I just used open sights. I wanted him to learn the basics. For myself and my 41 year old eyes – a red dot sight is in order. The Tasco is cheap and does the job.
Well – first trip shooting this new gun was great. 200 rounds of CCI run through it and no stoppages of anykind. Used 2 different BX-25 round magazines and they continue to please me.
