Default How interchangeable are 10/22 parts?

I'm looking to cobble together in expensive 10/22 rifle, probably from parts people don't want after they upgrade their 10/22. (btw if you have a bunch of 10/22 parts lying around let me know!)

But I'm not sure how compatible the parts are given I may be putting together a mutt of sorts. Are there any gotchas?

My best 10-22's are all put together rifles, using mostly used Ruger receivers and a couple with new Nodak's. One of the best places for 10-22 parts is to look on Rim Fire Central Trading Post ads. You are not going to hit that $100 target without someone giving away some parts though. The used receiver and ball alone will set you back a C note. I have up to $1,400 in some of my builds.

Only compatibility issue I could see is takedown parts and standard 10-22 don't all interchange. Some heavier barrels need stock with larger barrel channel.

I get what you're asking. Ruger parts usually won't have any fitting issues as their clearances are large enough to take really any part. Aftermarket parts might give you trouble, particularly the receiver-to-barrel fit (and, in my reading, it's more common with an aftermarket receiver than with an aftermarket barrel).

Remember that having to fit parts can be a good thing. Barrel droop is common when the barrel is too loose in the receiver and accuracy can suffer.

With aftermarket receivers you might also have to remove some material to fit the bolt.

The earliest 10/22s are slightly different inside the receiver, and there can be slight dimensional differences on the exterior.
Early ones do not have a prefix (Like xxx-xxxxx) before the serial number.
I would suggest for a project such as yours that you use a prefix type receiver.
"Mid-years" receivers have a 1/4" radius machined at the two rear corners of the receiver.
Later receivers starting around 10 years ago or so leave this rounded corner as originally cast, it is slightly larger in radius, this usually shows up when trying to fit the receiver to the stock.

You can probably pick up a lot of "take off" parts here if you are willing to wait. When I did my build I sold off all the extra parts. I only used the receiver and bolt in my build.

Parts sold in one day. Might have priced them too low.
