sporter stock

don't you just love the sporter stock? no barrel band, clean checkering, beautiful walnut wood, it makes it into a rifle instead of a carbine. I'm still looking for one

Love the carbine, too, but just that little difference in the Sporter stock makes it feel like a different gun. Comparing our Carbine and Sporter, the Carbine has more of a taper forward of the magazine, whereas the Sporter is fuller and thicker forward of the magazine. No doubt a matter of not needing as much of a taper on the Sporter for a barrel band.

My complaint about the RB (Carbine) is that the wood is so fat and square in the forearm area. The DSP has that nice taper upwards towards the barrel that fits the hand really well. The barrel band I couldn't care less about either, as it's not needed to hold the action in and does little more than affect accuracy and scratch the barrel.

To be honest, I like the carbine, mostly for the sake of nostalgia. Shot my first 10/22 in 1967, if remember, correctly. It was owned by my friend's uncle, but he let us use it for an afternoon of shooting. Was just amazed at how delightful a little gun it was to shoot. Knew I had to have one, sooner or later.

Interestingly, the LGS I bought this DSP from just got in a brand-new one today. Comparing it to mine, the grain and finish of the wood is better on the new one but the fit of wood to metal is terrible, both top and bottom. The receiver on mine is also an even satin black coating while the new one looks like somebody hit it with a cheap can of Krylon. I did like the rubber recoil pad however, and while the plastic trigger housing screams "cheap!" I did notice the mag catch plunger moved back and forth as smooth as silk. I think I'll still keep my older one however, especially as it was $100 cheaper.

Yeah, I also have mixed feelings about that plastic trigger housing. That's what's on my Charger. To be honest, it doesn't look bad and, of course, it won't chip or scratch off paint like the old aluminum trigger housings would. The trigger is smooth, too, at least as 10/22s go. I can live with it, for now.

The paint job on my Charger receiver is quite different than what is on my vintage 10/22s. Now, that, is not what I would call an improvement, but what the heck, it's only paint.

I think the fingergroove sporter has the best feeling stock. Its much wider than either the RB or the DSP but has finger grooves cut into the forearm.

Great find and great collection of .22's. I love that Nylon 66. That and the 10/22 have always been my favorites.
