Most Radical 10-22 Modification

Ah, the 10-22. One of my favorite toys.

I've experimented with lots of mods, heavy barrels, after market trggers, etc., etc., etc.....

However, you may get a kick out of my latest 10-22 bashing.... Arrow shooting!

I found an advertisement for a new barrel kit that uses industrial blanks to propell amuminum arrows at incredible speeds.
So, I broke down and bought one.

The kit consists of a thin barrel that fits inside of the hollow aluminum arrow.
There also is a Bull Barrel size outer barrel that screws onto the base of the arrow barrel to protect everything.

An arrow is slipped down over the inner barrel, a blank is single loaded into the chamber and you are ready to shoot.



My 10-22 Arrow Shooter ready for testing.




Here we have the outer barrel removed showing the inner barrel and an arrow.




This view shows the arrow mounted on the inner barrel.




Here is a view of the rear end of the arrow showing the hollow shaft.




This is an end view showing the arrow loaded and the outer barrel installed.
(The bell shaped device is to protect Broadheads from damage while carrying in the field)





Here is an arrow sticking almost completely through the target.
Incredible velocity and accuracy
.

I'm very impressed with this kit. More powerful than my crossbow, and more accurate.
Of course, it has no real practical use other than a unique way to shoot targets.
But, it isn't intended to stay installed.
The bull target barrel will soon be reinstalled and I'll go back to trying to shoot dime sized groups at 50 yards again.

Thought you may be amused by this outrageous 10-22 mod.

Take Care,

I've seen those around for a few years now. Initially I thought, it's be something to get but when it dawned on me it was only useable as a novelty and yet still was a range thing, I figured I'd pass. Still an interesting concept.

Quite So.
I bought it strictly as a toy to play with.
As an option for use in a true SHTF survival scenario, it still is subordinate to all my firearms and my archery equipment.

I also have a large collection of chamber adapters for my firearms, to include several that use primers to propel airgun pellets in both rifle and three different caliber handguns.



Primer powered 177 pellet adapter for the 44 Magnum




Primer powered 22 pellet adapters for the 223 Rem.




Chamber adapters for my 350 Rem Mag.
Adapters are for: 380 ACP, 9mm Parabellum, and 38 Special.


I'm a Swiss Army knife kind of guy. I like having all the extra goodies for my firearms, but still hunt with a 300 Weatherby.

One possible application would be as a line throwing gun.
