    Right now the only Ruger I have is a 10/22. I've had several different 10/22s and MK series pistols.

    Stock is the tapco T6 smooth side intrafuse. I added an extended mag release the goes all the way under the trigger guard, switched to a threaded barrel, and the scope is a Tasco red dot.

    Its as fun as you can get for a 22 plinker IMO. I was hot and heavy into AR15 building until the price madness stuck. Now I'm shifting gears to 10/22 customization. Been watching and reading tutorials on polishing, leveling and radiusing the bolt.

    I'm going to do that on this one, and next I'll be building a free float thumbhole stock light weight tac driver for me to play with and my kids to learn to shoot with. I'm thinking timney trigger, volquartsen carbon fiber tension barrel, Boyds SS Evolution stock, and a mueller 3-9x40 or maybe a SWFA fixed 6x42 SS sniper scope.
