Default Just Dove In: Tale of an X-22'd 10/22

On impulse while shopping around I picked up a Magpul X-22 Hunter stock in black.

It goes along with my early 2000's 10/22.



As you can tell from the photo I was compelled to immediately dig into my stash of gun goodies and see what I had. . . .a las, an el cheapo 4x Tasco Pronghorn scope that would have to do. Plus a new in the package Leupold 10/22 Quick Release Base and another NIB set of matching QR r1" rings.

So I installed them and popped in a 10 round butler creek hotlips magazine.





I have an unopened NIB FX-I 4x Rimfire scope by Leupold on my shelf. Am wondering if I should open that 8 year old package up finally and put it on my X-22 Hunter.

Or maybe sell it all and get a Primary Arms 1-6 Rimfire scope?

I suppose I should just go shoot it as is and then think about making upgrades later. . . like a Kidd barrel, new trigger group, etc. . . someone stop me.

Looking good. Does the stock come with any cheek risers?

Nice.

I'm still waiting for stealth grey hunter to complete my build. Been preordered for a month and still waiting.

I've been eyeballing that stock and it appears that I will definitely need some cheek risers as well. I'm just not sure which set to go with.

These damn .22's- for some reason, I'm always like, "well that purchase doesn't count in my gun budget, it was just a .22"

Wifey disagrees.

Do those butler creek mags work? I bought one to try out and it won't feed at all.

You gotta stretch the springs out. Load them and let sit a week., lube up the lips with silicone or teflon spray. After i did that no more issues. I saw this tip on rimfire central and it worked for me too

Sweet looking rifle!!!.

However I have found BC mags to be less then reliable. Some feed well, while others dont.

This issue tend to run in batches as far as I can tell. If I were in CA, I'd use the standard 10 rd mags with the Alangator three-clamp system, instead.

$495

I'd be hard pressed to get that for a billet AR Upper and lower with BCG.

No don't like those. Only thing I liked about the butler creeks is that they have something to grab on to to pull out of a mag pouch. Thought they would be crap that's why I only bought one to test.
