    I've owned this rifle for about five years now. It's gone through slight transformations here and there. I started with an auto bolt release and a polymer recoil buffer, then mounted a scope on it to intro myself to Small Bore Steel Silhouette before building a KIDD rifle for that purpose.

    Now it's mainly used for plinking and for the instruction of new marksmen. It's wearing Tech Sights, a Volquartsen trigger, Rimfire Technologies helical fluted mag release, Power Customs Extended charging handle and added a small pic rail at 6 o'clock out in front IOT mount a bipod.

    I Free floated the barrel and filed away the nasty looking "step" where the barrel band used to slide onto. Bushnell TR-25, Blackhawk cheek pad, and did a little grip job before painting it OD green real quick.

    No, the recoil wasn't bad at all. But I prefer a quieter cycle of operations, so replacing the original metal buffer with a polymer one just seemed like the right thing to do.
    I didn't think to clear it through the Director of 10/22 Sarcasm before applying that simple little mod.
