Default The Girls 10/22 build w/ ?'s

So I lost a bet and must deck out a purple 10/22. It must be a tack driver and aesthetics are a huge role. She is a big 1911 shooter so she likes that crisp light trigger and wants everything anodized purple and to have a good thumbhole stock. I was thinking a rifle-stocks.com stock not sure which one yet. As for a trigger what's the best light single stage. Any reason to do internals other than stock and trigger kit. I'm open to optics suggestions as well. She likes the acog. Thanks

I've usually used Volquartsen for single stage builds. Or you can have Clark Custom rework the factory trigger for about $75. Both make for a crisp 4-1/2lb trigger. I'm also fond of Volquartsen THM barrels. Just keep in mind that just assembling a pile of great parts into a custom 10/22 does not guaranty a tack driver. The nature of single point of attachment receiver means that the action can shift in the stock which means that you may have to bed the receiver, or 1-2" of the barrel, or both - or you my just get lucky and it'll just work. 10/22s are funny that way.

For a source I've always been happy with the prices and service from Shooter's Discount. I like them better than Stocky.

I have a Kidd singe stage on my 10/22. My 13 year old daughter has a Kidd 2 stage. She is used to and prefers her 2 stage, she says the single stage feels weird. I really really like the Kidd single stage.

Thanks sholling. I plan to have a smith friend build it for me. I glanced at the shooters site. I will note I was happy with the feel of the tactical solutions x ring but hated the trigger. Not sure if the x ring I shot had stock trigger. Never owned a 1022 but hope to deliver something to her that she can point and shoot with ease. So weight and accuracy and always aesthetics are the biggest concern.

Build it yourself. It's easy and there is a bit of trial and error involved no matter who does it - even an expert, and it's not hard to do. At least give it a try. You can always have a pro bed the receiver and install a pillar under the take down screw if you decide it needs the extra work. It doesn't require a big investment in tools.

A factory 10/22 comes with a fairly sloppy 6-7lb single-stage trigger so a crisp 4-1/2lb single-stage will make a heck of a difference and what I use on all but one of mine. On the other hand nothing I've tried comes close to the perfection of a two-stage Kidd trigger.

Here is where you have to fine tune your goals and what trade-offs to make. The weight of a match grade .920 diameter steel barrel will help steady shots but that's too much weight for hauling around and plinking. If she plans to shoot bulk ammo then there is no reason to sink big money into a heavy Kidd match grade stainless barrel or Volquartsen lightweight THM match grade barrel. They both need expensive ($6-20/50rds) target/match ammo to see anything like their potential for accuracy, and it takes trial and error to match the round with the barrel. If she's looking to use it as a plinker or use bulk ammo then a Whistlepig lightweight aluminum barrel is a good looking and reasonably priced and decently accurate option.

Keep in mind that super velocity ammo like CCI Stingers should not be used in match grade chambers.




For this build (I have 6 or 7) I used a Ruger receiver, a Volquartsen carbon fiber THM barrel and
trigger group, an engraved Kidd bolt, and a Weaver Classic scope. The target is 10rds of match
ammo at 50m - the rifle is capable of better but the shooter (me ) still needs a lot of work.

i love my ss evolution stock
http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/Replac...7-MKII-s/6.htm

and it comes in purple


purple tac sol barrel here
http://www.midwestgunworks.com/mm5/m...tore_Code=mgwi

and this would make great improvements to the trigger. both of my 10/22s are using PC parts, one with just a hammer, and one with a full kit. this kit is in between and probably more than enough. the one i did with just the PC hammer is great.
