Ruger 10/22 Takedown with a twist

As soon as I picked up and shouldered the Takedown I was determined to fit a new stock to it. I had contacted Hogue, but they had responded with no plans at the moment. Another member on here stated to check back before the next show and would seem there has been demand for such an item.

The bull barrel was couch's idea once he had seen my newly acquired Takedown. I went ahead and picked up both the barrel and the stock and couch did up all the fitting on his manual lathe and mill. More info regarding fitting those items can be seen in this thread; http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...70#post9628170
Feel free to contact him regarding any questions with the fitment and process.

I was torn between scopes, but decided on the Nikon as I am a big fan of their glass. All the photos were taken on a Nikon D7000 with Alienbee flashes triggered by Pocketwizards.
The Burris rings and all the KIDD components came highly regarded so I ordered them and couldn't be more content. As it is pictured the TD barely squeezes into the included carrying bag.

I do have the original stock and barrel in their original state. I intend to pickup the barrel block and internal components from Ruger so I can swap the barrels without exchanging parts.

Going camping in a couple weeks and will update with how it performs. Looking forward to it seeing this is my first 10/22 build. Overall I am very pleased with the outcome. Enjoy.

Green Mountain Barrel .920" Diameter 1 in 16" Twist 20" Stainless Steel (made to fit)
Hogue 10/22 Overmolded Stock Nylon, .920 Barrel, Black (made to fit)

Wow, looks nice. Minus the scope, what did that cost to have done?

Napalm Bulldog 11-07-2012 7:46 PM

WOW that looks great. I like the scope, Wondering same thing how much?

Can't wait till I get mine 9 days to go!

NSR500 11-18-2012 4:54 PM

That's how the Takedown should have come from the factory.

H2H 11-18-2012 5:11 PM

very nice work !! love it.

Japsican 11-18-2012 5:11 PM

Awesome rifle, nice work.

zod 11-18-2012 5:17 PM

That is awesome. Maybe Ruger will copy what you've done, with a Talo edition or something.

With a heavy bull barrel to make it weigh more than it has to, countering the whole handy compact gun concept? Granted it would have made sense for them to have it as a factory option or 2nd model available.

That being said, the number of missed opportunities for improvements and options that customers actually want on a factory 10/22 is astounding, so Ruger failing to provide it is par for the course.

Damn good looking custom job though.

super_chief 11-20-2012 10:55 AM

appresh the kind words. couch did a superb job.

picking up a KIDD retrofit magazine speed lever soon. it's going to compliment another item we've been toying with recently

wicked liquid 12-04-2012 10:53 AM

That is fricken awesome!

tntenter 12-14-2012 7:48 AM

too beautiful to let ruger produce it and get the credit, i wouldthink there is some way foryou to copyright it or something?:gunsmilie:

mrjohns 12-28-2012 8:56 AM

To Coach
 
Would you consider doing just the stock mod. I would like to build the same rifle , but with stock barrel.

Lamilla45 01-13-2013 10:13 PM

Great to see this.. Awesome pics, I really like this.
I am going to purchase, Let me know in detail to buy the same.. Any specific detail that would I should follow.

uponroof 01-21-2013 9:18 AM

This work is very interesting, as well as (obviously) well done.

I hope this isn't out of line (given I live in PA) but I saw this build and it applies to something similar that I'm just beginning. So I'd like to follow through with a few questions if this thread is still alive.

I'm having a suppressed barrel made for my 10 22 multicam takedown. I've looked into ordering a seperate multicam front from the Ruger AZ plant which would be later outfitted with the same stainless bull barrel used in this build. Ruger is saying they do not offer additional front stocks and barrels for the takedown at this time. They are only offered through whole gun sales/production.

1. Is the Green Mountain barrel the only resource for the barrel? Is there anyone else scheduled to or already in the process of making the takedown barrel as designed as an exact replacement piece for the takedown model (besides Ruger)?

2. Forgetting about the camo finish, would it be possible to marry an aftermarket stock such as the Hogue to the factory receiver end?...(assuming I can find the connecting hardware).

couch 01-21-2013 9:37 AM

I am planning to offer this service, I've just been slammed lately with work.

For this build I took a standard Hogue Overmold stock, and a standard Stainless BullBarrel by Green Mountain and modified both of them to work with this setup. Neither of them were TakeDown specific before I modified them. So if I'm reading your questions correctly, you can use most barrels for this modification and most stocks as well given there is enough meat in them to modify.

uponroof 01-21-2013 11:40 AM

Thanks!

The only missing part(s) then would be the connecting hardware within the front stock of the takedown. From talking with them Ruger is not likely to offer takedown specific parts (like barrel to receiver hardware) anytime soon. I'm looking at various sites for takedown scraps from custom builds but haven't found anything yet. Short of buying an entire takedown or custom milling the connector hardware (leery of accuracy compromise) I'm not seeing the answer. Might be more trouble than it's worth and best to just buy another 10 22 with bull barrel. But... that defeats the idea of having 2 barrels for the same gun in the same backpack. ideas?

usmcchet9296 01-24-2013 12:45 PM

would be a great idea
wich Houge would make one
matched with a light Tacsol barrel, Nodak rear sight/rail/front sight
would be a cool combo

Count me in Couch, just tell me what I need and when you want it.

general_disarray 02-09-2013 10:36 PM

That is sweet, excellent job couch!

H2H 02-09-2013 10:47 PM

I'm in for a hogue stock and if you can make custom barrels as well.

Paperchasin 02-10-2013 8:04 AM

Looks great! Excellent work and terrific photos!

movie zombie 02-10-2013 8:22 AM

that is one beautiful 10/22!

Steve-O 02-28-2013 8:09 AM

That thing looks sweeeet!

Trumpet 05-05-2013 6:18 AM

Does a Kidd or PWS tensioned barrel have enough "beef" on it to work?

eb47 05-05-2013 8:56 PM

Is there anyone/business place that can offer this mod service in the Bay Area/Nor Cal.?

jetspeed8 05-18-2013 7:51 PM

Couch, that is one Great Conversion. :)
I would like to get mine done anytime you are ready.

dlouie87 05-19-2013 1:35 PM

Nice rifle. How much more on top of the 10/22 did you spend?

michel123 07-30-2013 11:36 PM

I'd like to know this as well. Perhaps the carbon barrels would need some sort of sleeve or collar. Has anyone tried this? Anyone willing to try?

jpkar 10-03-2013 6:11 PM

badass

45 GAP 10-23-2013 4:06 AM

Ooooh! I want one too! I already have the takedown. The Ruger hardware could probably be duplicated by a good machinist. Might piss Ruger off just a bit.... (patents, copyrights and such) :chris:

Exnihilo 11-02-2013 11:43 PM

That is one sweet set up.

subrvin 01-18-2014 8:57 AM

Look at what I found at the 2014 shot show, this was at the Hogue booth.https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-C...116_140338.jpg

You were right about Ruger getting pissed off, I showed them my picture and as luck would have it, the company attorney was standing next to me and paid Hogue a little visit. I just wanted to ask if they were making this or if this was a prototype. Since he didn't look too happy about that, I'm guessing it wasn't.
