Thumbs up Folding stocks for 10-22

Just bought my fourth 10-22, a stainless model with synthetic stock. I have choate folders on two, but would like some ideas for a lighter option. I keep one in my BOB with 500 rds. Would like to make it lighter, but not cheaper

Thanks for the info Nathan. Looked at the ati,butler creek, and ramline. Ramline seems to be the lightest, but don't know about the strength

How about a plain 10/22 with an aftermarket barrel?

The barrel is probably the heaviest part of the gun.. shorter makes it lighter but does anyone make a thinner steel sleaved carbon fiber barrel?

Volquartsen makes a sleeved carbon fiber barrel, I'd bet other manufacturers do also.
AGP makes a folding stock for the takedown version and a complete take version of their own.

+1 on the bug out bag Nathan. I knew you guys would have some great ideas. I like the carbon fiber barrel idea.

Looking at the charger gave me some ideas too. What if you take a folder and install one of those light weight carbon barrels, then cut it off 1" in front of the fore stock? In my calculations you would end up with a 12-1/2" barrel, then put on a compact 3x9x42 scope to bring back some accuracy. What do you all think?

Becareful about cutting barrels. Local laws may prohibit certain barrel lengths.

At some point a short barreled rifle becomes no better than a pistol.

Look up the stock 10/22 weight on ruger's website..
I think a short 16.5" carbon fiber barrel will be about as light as you can get.

Buy a rifle back pack that has a spot for a rifle or a decent hiking pack

I have a north face hiking back pack that has water bottle pouches on each side that a rifle stock fits in.
I have a collapsible fishing pole and fishing gear in a tube on the opposite side.
I use a water bladder for my drinking water plus a sawyer water filter and extra water squeeze bags.

I carry a mini 30 and the wife carries the mini 22..

I knew I liked you Nathan. I already have north face internal frame, and carried my 10-22 with the choate folder and 4x scope inside with 500 rds. I also have a pen fisherman that scopes out to 42" that comes with a small but very nice spinning reel. The whole thing including lures,bobbers,weights,leaders, and hooks weighs less than a lb. I have a msr minnieworks for a water filter, like it because you can field maintain it without tools.
Also like the Sawyer bladder. Just trying to shave off as much weight as possible.

I have a talo mini 22 the wife carries that.
I carry a mini 30 both side folders but I don't fold them. Butt of stock goes where water bottles go and use the straps on back pack to strap the upper half of the gun. Barrel points up like a radio antena.
I bought a water tight box for my solar hand crank radio but the dimensions list on box were outside dimensions and it was too small. It fits a 525 rd brick of 22lr 60rds of 762x39 and two 10rd magazines of 40 s&w or I can fit a full bucket of bullets in it 1500rds 22lr.

Sounds like we have a similar fishing set up.. mine might be heavier.

The sawyer water filter is field stripable and has a million gallon warranty not that matters much. I like their foil water bags small light and I can carry a lot of them.

Food seems to be a big issue with me.. takes up a lot of space but have a 65 liter pack

Mountian house is the way I go plus some energy bars and chocolate, tea, and coffee mixes. Try the MH 2 chicken breasts with mashed potatos, best meal they have packed. Seven days of meals don't weigh that much, but what you can't carry won't help you

I too have a mountain lake cabin my family and I would run to.
I have a 60 day supply of food out there plus years worth of fire wood.
I have a well that I'm converting to manual pump along with the electric.

I just wish the cabin was futther away from civalization.

I have a emp proof car so I can drive out there if needed.

If I can.leave on wheels I can take more.

My next purchase will be a solar powered battery charger so my flash lights etc will be useable.

Nathan

Sorry about the confusion. The mountian house is a brand of dehydrated backpackers food that I promise tastes better than mre's. They come in a varity of meals and everyone that I have tried were very good. Add to this the fact they very light in the pack.

You just add a cup of boiling water directly into the pouch, stir, close the pouch up and let stand for about 30 sec then eat directly from the pouch. Look on line for the best prices. Walmart sells them in the sporting goods dept. Try a few different ones and let me know what you think

My wife and I have some land and cabin on southern Colorado
