I have one with a Yukon thumb hole stock, voltquartsen carbon fiber barrel, voltquartsen trigger kit, bolt release mod and a Leupold scope. This thing is a tac driver.

I have the Chicago Tommy kit on the way. Currently searching for another 10/22. You can't go wrong with this rifle. It has quite a few options and is a great shooter.

You might already know this, but you can make your own Auto Bolt Release with a dremel. It was actually very easy to do.

It depends on what the end use of the rifle will be. When I bought mine, it was to use for squirrel hunting on the cheap. So, I went with a Butler Creek bull barrel, Hogue stock (standard stocks don't accept bull barrels) and a 3-9X 32mm Simmons scope ($25 at Big 5 but this was years ago). It's knocked off hundreds of squirrels over the years and I think it cost less than $250, including the original price of the used rifle.

so opposite of what i did :thumbsup:
Christie and Christie stock, being 6'6" the extra length of the stock is great.
simmons 4-12 scope, walmart special!
butler creek extended mag release
and a bull barrel that i cant remeber the name of..it was free so :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:


my favorite mod
auto matic bolt release. took me about 5 minutes with my dremel and a tile cutting bit.

my favorite aftermarket part, VQ target hammer kit, for $35 it rules.

My next one will be a target rifle with some sort of wood stock if i can find one that i like. most of them are just TO colorful.

You are right about too colorful. Mine is really blue, but I still love it. In retrospect I should have purchase the grey stock. By the way nice shoes.

There's a few guys on rimfirecentral who will rework your stock factory barrel. The barrels are either just as good if not better than the aftermarket bull barrels you can buy and alot cheaper. IMO The best mod you can do though is an auto bolt release and a VQ hammer which takes the bad stock 8lb trigger pull down to 2.5-3 lbs.

My 10/22 was built for a different purpose than the rest here but I thought you may like something a bit different. This gun was built for shooting steel plates at Take-5 matches. The following mods were done to it.

Tactical Solutions Barrel, and Magazine release (not pictured)
Ruger target stock
VQ extended bolt handle, bolt release, and trigger, hammer, and sear
C-more

The trigger was done by my roommate and it is the sweetest trigger I have ever used. The bolt and anything else we could was polished so it is very slick. The gun is super reliable and very accurate. The best part is it is very light so it swings very quickly and shoulders quickly. I really love it and it is my favorite gun to shoot.

By the way, I had an Hogue OM stock and while it is a nice feeling stock, it did not work well for my application. The stock is somewhat sticky and would slow me down at matches. The factory Ruger stock (which I believe is made by Boyds) is much quicker for me.

If you ever build another one, take a little time reading over at rimfirecentral.com. There's a whole section devoted to how you can improve the stock gun with a little elbow grease and little to no bucks.

Example:
If you run a sparkplug barrel wrapped in sand paper down the barrel channel of your factory stock, you can wallow it out to fit a bull barrel. Takes 10-15 minutes depending on how much larger than the barrel you are aiming to wallow out the channel. Some people go for the stock feel and stop when you can slide a single business card between the barrel and the channel.

Other tips:
* DIY auto bolt release
* DIY trigger group surface polishing
etc

My favorite 10/22 mod is the one where the only part of the rifle that is original is the magazine.

from his description I don't think it would be much all you need is the stock, cheap mag, and sights.

Personally, my favorite 10/22 mod was a spikes tactical 22lr AR15;)

My tricked out 10/22 never made it out of the safe after that

I have only had mine for about a month but I would replace the extractor. It made a huge difference on mine and I now conceder it an essential mod.
