10/22 stock on a takedown

Question to all...

Can I use a stock from the standard 10/22 on the takedown? The idea is to have a rigid unit where I don't have to mess with the optics every time. I have a rifle bag and am not so worried about the takedown feature. As I see it, my options are to either
1. Install an aftermarket barrel with an integrated scope mount rail, OR
2. Use a stock where I give up the take down feature.

Any other options?

PS: I did a search but did not find any discussions about this in the past few months. Will expand the search to more history.

I think it would fit IF you relieve the area where the adjustment ring would cause interference. Im not sure you will get the results you are looking for because the barrel still isn't rigidly mounted to the receiver, whether its in the takedown stock, or the standard stock. I suppose the standard stock will hold the barrel and give better results, but then again... it may not. If you use the barrel band, and the standard stock that goes with the band, you would get better results than with the DSP stock.

That barrel band at the end would be a requirement to keep it all in place. Looking at it in more detail, I may have to also create a notch for where the takedown knob thingy comes out at the bottom. Looks like more work than needed. I might as well just get the bull barrel with a rail

The other option may be to completely remove the takedown feature from the bottom of the barrel.

unleashd, Because of the way a TD barrel mounts, you need the latch release under the forearm and you need the collar that tightens the mount. A rigid one piece stock totally defeats the purpose of a take down and would require considerable work and expense.

The best option is to buy a Volquartsen cantilever scope mount that mounts directly to the barrel. I bought and installed one on MY TD and they totally solve the issues you mentioned. You do need to drill and tap the factory barrel for the mounting screws ..... or you can buy a Volquartsen barrel with the cantilever base already mounted. Here's a link to the mount: https://www.volquartsen.com/products...or-ruger-10-22

I will get a barrrel with a cantilever rail pre-mounted. This is one thing I will not put my DIY skills toward But, not really a big fan of the carbon fiber finish on the Volquartsen. Will look at the other options. Thanks for the insight!!

I can see what you are trying to accomplish my question is why did you buy a 10/22 take down model in the first place???

Point well taken....But, I did not realize this would be so much additional work each time to have to zero in the optics, before I bought the rifle. Without using optics, I have no issues with the take down. Hindsight of not doing my homework properly. And yes, I can add/replace the rifle with a standard 10/22 to be rid of this trouble

Have you checked other threads wrote here in the Ruger Forum about this exact problem you are concerned about?? You might want to check up on this. I know that keeping a scope zeroed in with the take down model can be a problem but I think there has been some success with beating this issue!

Why not sell the TD and get a model that you want?

I would think the simple answer would be assemble the rifle , sight it in and DON'T take it down , carry it in your bag.....what am I missing ?
Gary
Cap't. Obvious

Answer #2. Trade it on a non take down.

Haven't tried this yet. Will give it a shot. But, I don't think it will work. If that barrel rotates even a tiny bit, the alignment will be off.

Folks
Trading the takedown for another rifle is the easy way out. Where is the joy of 'personalizing' your rifle?

This doesn't necessarily work as you think it would. As the rifle fires, the barrel shifts slightly, resulting in "C" shaped groups. The only way to solve the issue is with a cantilever barrel mount, and the optic mounted to the barrel.

Fair enough. But don't come around asking how to make a standard 10/22 into a Takedown model!
