Hey Tony... what's up...

I have never posted any pics... and mine is just plain black plastic...the factory deluxe stock I have but no gun in it...

Also I should say then when I mentioned modifying the stock I was simply suggesting that people do all kinds of very cool and interesting things to the base model stock that are basically free projects...

lithgow303 is a good example look in project section you will see what I mean...

And the cheaper the factory stock to begin with the less there is to loose by doing stuff to it...stuff you would not do the higher priced ones...

I have seen them painted really nice...camouflaged...the fore ends cut down like a Boyd's or a Charger...

Seen them stained with green stain... and looked VERY cool...

There were two I saw on youtube that I thought were exceptionally unique and very cool looking...

One was painted white with black zebra stripes...the other just had black zebra stripes on the original wood stain...

And those guys didn't spend any $$$ on upgraded anything and had basically no money into their projects...

Something else I learned recently that was cool also is that you can buy a reamer for the barrel crown and fixture for cutting a sight dovetail with a file...so a guy could shorten his barrel (no less than 16" by law) later w/o even buying another barrel...or going to a gunsmith...even if you mess up the stock and the barrel there is much you can do to this gun on a low budget it's not funny...

Those videos are from midwayusa and of course they sell that stuff...

Bottom line the less you spend going in the better off you are IMO unless you know for a fact exactly what you want from the factory and why...

Later... ZG

Hey,
I thought you posted a pic of your gun, my mistake? I saw one all done up and thought it was yours? Maybe I was reading your parts list and got confused? Bud will do that, you know...... ; )
Oops!

As mentioned ...an 'out of the box' 10/22 needs nothing. I've seen people spend $$$ 'customizing' a 10/22 and what they end up with is no more accurate or reliable than it was 'out of the box' ...sometimes it is less. Too many people get hung up on building a gun ...that is OK if you just want the pleasure / satisfaction of doing it. I don't think a 10/22 would be as popular if you had to 'fix it' with 'customization' as soon as you took it out of the box. They are an amazing plinker 'as is'.

Plain Jane will get the job done for sure, and as others have said, you can customize it all you want.

much as i'd rather promote local stores, i'd say go to walmart. that's where i got mine. get the regular old ruger 10/22 carbine. you won't be disappointed. many people go back and forth between the 10/22 and the marlin 60, but just about all my friends said to go for the ruger 10/22 based on their experiences. it's a great little plinker-- fun and cheap. depending on sales, discounts, etc. you should be able to get one from wally world for not much over $200 and possibly a bit less. go for it, and have fun!

Get the take down if can swing it.

I am now closer to 70 than 60 Years. I have had a number of M-77 from .458 down to the 10-22. I lost all of them in a very unhappy divorce.
I recently got a 10-22 TD model, The first time I shot it I could not believe the weight of the trigger pull.
The main reason I got the TD is that you can clean it from the BREACH. I have never liked a rifle I had to clean from from the muzzle. Those last few inches are the accurate end.
I was not on a budget at the time and got a good 3 x 9 x40 scope and tghe following SS check I bought the Timeny(sp) trigger block assembly. It is pricey, but worth every cent. I would guess the trigger at about 2 1/2 lbs, but one of the features I really like is the magazine release. You can work it with your second finger and the magazine drops right out and ready for another 25 round RUGER mag. The ones by Butler creek will no feed without at least one jam. By getting the Timeny assemble you elemite getting all the little add ons
that are our there by the 1,000's
One other thing you should get is the plastic buffer pin. Cuts way down on the clack, clack of the action cycling
Good luck and stay on board the forum. Lots of great info here.

Practically any 10/22 Rifle is upgradeable to your heart's content, from a few dollars to $2,000+ as I have noticed. I just got myself a 10/22 All Weather and all ready spent $300 on top and I have yet to have it in my hands.
