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.
