10/22 TD Build

Hello all. I recently picked up a 10/22 TD with the intentions of building a lightweight backpacking/camping/survival gun. I opted for the blued 16" model with threaded barrel as running a suppressor is a likely option, I am not sure if I will change the barrel out anytime soon, and minute of squirrel accuracy is all I need. It's currently wearing a Redfield Revolution 2-7x33 scope on Leupold rifleman rings. I am going at this with 2 main requirements 1) reliability and 2) light weight. I have decided to build this on the new Magpul X-22 Backpacker stock, as I like the way it stows and love the in stock storage. I will also be using the Magpul X-22 Backpacker optic mount and will be topping that with a Vortex Venom 3MOA red dot sight as my eyes aren't quite what they used to be, and I'd like to lose the weight of the scope. I have already ordered KIDD Innovative Design Auto Bolt Release, Buffer, Extractor, Firing Pin and Bolt Handle w/Guide Rod & Springs. I am using a BX trigger group as it's inexpensive and suits my needs, this is not a precision rifle, and I like the one in my dad's rifle. I already picked up the Vortex Venom, x3 BX-1 Magazines and the BX-Trigger. Now I just have to wait for the other parts to arrive. Mainly the stock.

For those interested in the cost of this build I am going to compile the pricing as if I was starting from zero. I will not include the Redfield scope or other BX-1 magazines I already own.
All prices are round up to the nearest dollar.
  • Ruger 10/22 Take Down model 11112 - $370
  • Ruger BX-Trigger - $70
  • Ruger BX-1 Magazine $20 ea. (x3) - $60
  • Vortex Venom 3 MOA red dot - $230
  • Magpul X-22 Backpacker stock - $105
  • Magpul X-22 Backpacker Optic Mount - $57
  • KIDD Innovative Design Buffer - $6
  • KIDD Innovative Design Auto Bolt Release - $11
  • KIDD Innovative Design Extractor - $11
  • KIDD Innovative Design Firing Pin - $24
  • KIDD Innovative Design Bolt Handle w/Guide Rod & Springs - $30

This is a grand total of $744 with out optics and $974 with the red dot.

I am also giving myself about another $100 in the budget as might want to add a few little things.
I am considering a T3 magazine release and maybe an EGW picatinny optics mount.

I will update this as further parts arrive.
What are your thoughts on this build?
Thanks for any advise or recommendation in advance.
