Converting my 10/22 into a target rifle (sight question)

I'm thinking of competing in an NRA registered Light Sporting Rifle match. I used to compete in NRA Highpower so I have a fantastic set of aperture sights, RPA 18mm front and PNW rear with Gehmann Irises front and rear.

The LSR rules have a max weight limit and my current target 10/22 is too heavy with the scope on it. So my idea would be to take the scope off and mount my aperture sights. I've done a fair bit of digging but I can't find anyone else who's mounted serious aperture sights onto a 10/22.

The RPA has a weaver base, so I'd need to install a 0.920 barrel band or turn the muzzle end down to accomodate a more normal size.

The PNW rear is a side mount. I haven't seen a 10/22 sight mount that fits side mount sights.

Even if I find mounts for both, I don't know if the height will match up.

The sights came off of a Tikka Master Sporter (if that helps at all)

also, on a separate but related note, anyone know how much the Talo Special Edition Ruger 10/22 Target model weighs to the ounce?

The page says 8 pounds, but my rear sight weighs 6.4 oz, so it'll be tight if I want to hit an 8.5 lb. limit. (of course I could probably free up mass by cutting down the barrel and adding a bloop tube to bump the sight radius)

thanks,
atek3

Well, I cannot help on the sight mounting aspect but if you're looking at the TALO model...well, rather than going the new route, you'll have better results, performance wise, if you build one from scratch. You get a better bbl and can go with better trigger than what you'd start with. Nothing against the TALO stuff at all, it's as good as any other 10/22 but for something for competitive use, build it.

I agree with you. But I own it, I replaced the trigger group already, and even with the stock barrel and bolt it'll print silly tiny groups... definitely good enough for offhand.
