Hi all,

I just recently received a Ruger 10/22 for xmas and I want to do a few mods to it. So i have a couple of questions for those that have done such things.

First off thanks for any help or suggestions.

Stocks, i like the Boyds tacticool however I have a Green Mountain Sporter barrel 17" I purchased off this site, its .920 and then tapers down. So most of the stocks i find are for heavy barrels or stock, i know i have to get the heavy however what will i do on the front end of the stock?

If you own a tacticool stock, is it mainly for bench or can ya hunt with it as well? I like the look of the tacticool however i do alot of walking and need something mobile, kinda why i was looking at the Hogues as well.

Impression on thumbholes stocks? i found several lefties on Ebay etc ...

Will the GM barrel just mount right up to the stock 10/22 reciever? if not what needs to be done?

I will use this 10/22 for hunting and target so i am kinda looking for the best of both worlds.

And don't even get me started on scopes. lol i need one of those too. :D

Thanks again ...

as far as using the GM sporter, I have used sporters in a stock cut for a bull barrel, and I liked the look of the sporter better than the heavy barrel. It looks really good.

If youre going to be walking around, think of a stock with a conventional shape, and I personally like wood because you can float the barrel, open the channel, and bed the stock easier. All my 10/22's have wood stocks. Thumbholes are typically heavy, but if you find one you like, get it. Its more about comfort anyways.

this picture is a sporter barrel in a stock cut for a .920 barrel.

I dont even shoot the 10/22 with a heavy barrel on it. mainly because its HEAVY, and it gets annoying. I get better accuracy out of my sporter barrels, so you I would HIGHLY recommend the GM sporter.

to mount that gm sporter in the factory stock, you need to sand from about 2-4 inches in front of the V-block to get it to fit. Other than that, it fits great.

So you are saying to get the stock version stock for a sporter barrel or get the stock for a .920?

You said I would need to sand some on a stock barrel and then you posted a pic of a .22 in a .920 stock.

I am looking at the Stockys stock Yukon, and wondering which to order?

I assume they will both fit, however which will need less mods to work?

What im saying is that some stocks are only made to hold a .920 barrel. In my case, Volquartsen only made the stock I posted a picture of in .920. So, that opens up your options to find a stock you really like. You can use either.

If you get the 920 stock, you might have to sand a tiny bit (if any), and your barrel should be able to be floated easily.

If you get a sporter stock, you will need to sand it a little where it is tight, and you will also need to sand the whole barrel channel if you want to free-float the barrel. The rifle that is 3rd from the top is my best shooting .22, and it is also my lightest. It is a factory stock, and gm 20" sporter. I call it the "Sleeper"

These rifles pictured below are all floated, bedded and all have gm barrels.

This one is a factory sporter stock, and it has a gm sporter barrel in it. I had to sand the whole barrel channel to float the barrel. no big deal.

You may want to check out RimfireCentral.com, if you haven't already done so. Some of those folks have made every change possible to a 10/22 and probably about 8 that aren't really possible, but they did em anyway.

Good luck.

Stockys stocks seems to have decent deals.
