Ok. I love my buddies 10/22. I gotta have one. That being said I don't want the stock or barrel that comes with it. Is there a way to get just the receiver. Is it cheaper, and worth it? Or better to just get a full rifle on sale and trade out the parts? any help is greatly appreciated. Thx fellas

If you're going to use the factory bolt and trigger group you're probably best off buying the rifle complete. If you want a full custom there are several brands of receivers available.

Cheapest is to buy the 10/22 new, toss the stock and barrel.

Best is to buy a full custom barreled action from a independent shop like KID.

If you want to start from the ground up, get a receiver that's less crappy than the modern cast then spray-painted Ruger receiver. While Kidd and Volquartsen make expensive masterpieces of receivers, I like the more mid-range (but still billet machined) NDS-22. (http://nodakspud.com/NDS-22.htm) Factory bolts/trigger group/charging handle are easily found elsewhere, and you have a rockin' receiver to start a kickass assemblage.

I bought the 80% and finished it myself. Cheap, well machined and works great!

I've also thought about going this route but bought a 10/22 instead. I think, I'll get one just to say I built one. haha

Buy an old metal one and throw out the offending parts, or get a Volquartesen receiver and trigger group. INFINITELY better.

You can buy an old used one, or brand new one, and sell off what you dont need. NDS has some nice receivers for the 10/22. Their sights look pretty cool too..

whats with this anti ruger make thing going on, the stainless barrel on mine shoots excellent. gets a bit warm after 100 shots in 20 minutes but otherwise

Its not being Anti-Ruger...the 10/22 is legendary and for good reason.

However, there is some (sometimes major, sometimes minor) room for improvement in all of the parts...so if you are after one of the very best semi-auto .22's around...you wont be using any Ruger parts except the magazine.

^^^ New or used. Sometimes, if your lucky, you can find one used at a pawn shop for less that 200.00 in good condition, or better yet from a private party (no sales tax, DROS only). Seem like the used 10/22s are not abundantly available at the present time. People are holding on to them for some reason.
