I've got a stainless Marlin 995 22lr. Nice to shoot, very accurate and no aftermarket parts to drool over.

For the 10/22 22lr, you'll be looking at the 17HM2's. 17HMR is a necked down 22 Mag.
Volquartsen in my opinion is the best place to go to for 10/22 parts. I ordered a rifle from them and could not have thought of a better way to thin my wallet.

If you want to do a cheap upgrade that will improve the way your new rifle shoots get a Volquartsen target hammer. This will improve the trigger pull immensely. The change will be like night and day. They run about $30. Mark

You can get a fancy wood stock like that and a Green Mountain heavy barrel for about $200-225 as a pair.
Trigger parts can cost you anywhere from $50-250 depending on how crazy you want to get.

I built up an ultra lightweight (magnum lite barrel, hogue stock), and sold the parts to a friend (the rifle was so light it was hard to shoot accurately!). I re-did mine with a fluted Green Mountain barrel and the identical stock pictured. I put Power Custom Titanium internals in it, and re-did the trigger by hand until I was happy with the pull (about 1.5#).

Total cost- Rifle + $250 (bbl, stock) + 150 (trigger, bolt parts, misc).

I boguth hte rifle used off a freind, so I got it cheap - you'll only use the receiver and bolt and (sometimes) the trigger housing.

Depending on how extensively you'll be working on your 10/22, you might as well just buy a Volquartsen reciever and start from there. Like Pouchey mentioned, when everything is said and done, there will only be a couple Ruger components left in the rifle.....

And if you don't want to do a bunch of upgrading, you can save some money with a Marlin Model 60, which is also reliable and accurate. Mine's actually a bit more accurate than my stainless 10/22 rifle-length, and the tube mag holds 14 rounds to boot.

They're not much for upgrading, though. The Ruger's much better for tinkering and tweaking.

I will be purchasing a new 22LR semi-auto next week and it will probably be a 10/22. I have owned them in the past, and you can't beat the out of the box reliability and accuracy.

I would like to purchase a standard barel stainless synthetic model with iron sights.

Has anyone experience with the ruger 10/22 in .17 HMR? Are the Volquartson 10/22's worth the price? Tell me your 10/22 set ups!

I have the stainless, iron sights stadard joint. It is a jolly shooter but I must say I should have bought the cheapest one out there. I spent extra money on stainless wood stock etc. But, I find it to be a bit pedestrian after a couple of range trips. I want it to look like the gun posted above. So when all is said and done, very little of the original rifle is left. If you can I suggest buying one sans barrel and stock. Save your money for the shiney stuff.

Why? I bought two of the last year for my boys, all I added was red dot sights and they're plenty accurate. Seems like a lot of money to spend on a plinking rifle IMO.
