Instead buying a new or used gun and upgrading it. How hard it is to build one from scratch? I have built few AR-15 already and I am pretty mechanical also. What are the parts I need. Not into spending too much money on it but would like to have a nice accurate one.

are you asking about like an 80% reciever? or complete receiver? a complete 10/22 is cake to take apart and put together just pins and screws but as far as an 80% its a lil amount of work all is done with a press simple

Here's an example of the work involved with an 80% build. Never done it, but like lbc710 said it doesn't look hard at all.

If you have the equipment, go for it, but remember that per ATF regulations, you're stuck with it for life. Not that this should be a problem :p

There are all kinds of parts available online, ranging from Ruger OEM parts to performance parts from places like Kidd Design and Volquartsen. This is the real beauty of the 10/22. You have a LOT of options here.

10/22's are VERY easy to work on and if you just want to buy the parts separately and piece it together, it should not be a problem. thats basically what everyone does anyways except they buy the whole gun just for the receiver/bolt.

you can buy aftermarket receivers, bolts, innards, triggers, barrels, and stocks...is that what you are looking to do?

Pretty much...... I hate to buy the whole gun and only use two major parts and get upgrades... why not get upgrades all at once? that is the question i ask to myself.

makes sense to me. you end up spending more but you get it built how you want it from the ground up
