Forgive me if I have posted some of these before. I am sharing with the RT group here to inspire others.
These 10/22s become a habit, an obsession. So many ways you can build them

I'll start with my latest one. I found a 16" threaded ER Shaw bull barrel at a gun show for $40, so I decided to put together another rifle. I bought a Hogue Over-molded thumbhole stock for it, used another Kingston Armory steel receiver, a JWH custom bolt, a bi-pod and a Bushnell scope






I had always wanted and international model and so I decided to put a special one together. I took one of the Kingston Armory steel receivers that I bought in the white (bare steel) and gave it a high polished finish, then blued it. I did the same with a new take-off barrel, then I bought an Atomic Arms billet aluminum, anodized trigger housing (looks a lot like the original Ruger aluminum housings) and trigger. I then took a factory bolt and gave it a good polishing (I may go back and jewel the bolt). Anyway here it is








This project started when I found an original Finger Groove Sporter Stock for a reasonable price (I think I paid $75 for it). I didn't have any vintage Ruger parts, so I put it together the same was as the International model above.










If having two of these special edition 10/22s wasn't enough, I bought one of the newer walnut Sporter stocks and put the barreled action from the Finger Groove rifle into it. I then found a vintage barreled action (pre-1970) and pit that into the FGS stock. Here is the trio

This is my tribute to a tribute. A guy who used to build custom stocks came up with the idea of a 10/22 tribute to the old carbines of the late 19th century (Spencer, Sharps, Springfield, Ballard etc)

So I took his idea and ran with it. Starting with a standard beech wood stock, I made it into a straight grip, cut back the barrel band portion and tapered it, then refinished the wood using brown leather dye and Tru-Oil. I blued the bolt, used brass screws, added a saddle ring from a Krag rifle, installed an extended mag release that is reminiscent of the action levers from the old carbines. I then installed sling swivels from an old Enfield and made a sling from an old leather belt. For the sights I used the original brass bead in front and a William Peep in the rear

This rifle was a for a raffle to raise money for our local gun forum, using a 50th anniversary receiver and a vintage walnut stock, we built a pretty nice shooter for the lucky winner



The new take off barrel got a high polished blued finish



I jeweled the bolt and had a laser engraver put the forum's logo on the receiver

This one started when I found a good deal on an SR-22 stock/chassis at a gun show

Just added a factory receiver, a factory threaded 16" barrel, a blued factory bolt (for stealthyness) a universal bayonet lug, scope & low rise mounts, a Knights Armament VFG, aftermarket charging handle and an extended mag release

This next one started out as a modified stock that someone gave me. It was an original walnut stock that some one painted black, then put it on a belt sander and flattened the sides and removed the barrel band section.
So I removed the rest of the black paint, raised the dents, sanded out the imprecations and I had a friend into wood working add some finger grooves on the forend. I then added a factory take-off barrel and a steel Kingston Armory receiver, both got a high polish finish. Then I had a factory aluminum trigger housing and the aluminum butt plate Cerakoted in graphite black. Finally a I added some sling swivels that mimicked the ones used on the original FGS stocks

Here are the before and after pictures:

Another 10/22 Cheap Trick
I love this build. If Ruger would have made a !0-22 in 1901 , this would have been it.
