Thumbs up Wifes first gun! A Purple 10/22

Bought the wife a 10/22 for Appleseed. And let her customize it to her liking.
She removed and put on the new barrel etc her self and the end result is an ultra light 10/22 with no recoil. And I may or may not use it for varmints.

-Boyds Royal / purple stock
-Magnum research Carbon utlra light 16" bull barrel with compensater
-Not here yet but have a BSA 2-7x Sweet 22 scope on the way.

Still needs
-Trigger work done
-Need a sling

Only part of the yard that was sunny, and I used a cellphone. I will try and get some better ones at the range today.

You can use scopes at an Appleseed? I heard it was irons only, but I'm probably talking out of my ***

You can use anything you want at an Appleseed. Some things are more strongly encouraged than others (i.e. you should be using a sling and shouldn't be using a bipod otherwise you're missing the point). The 400 yard targets are itsy bitsy and lots of us over-40 types benefit from a scope. I used irons for mine but sometimes it was a bit of an act of faith as to what I was shooting at.

Very nice! Just a suggestion I'd add a Tactical Solutions magazine release (black or purple) and do a 2-2.5lb trigger job with either a VQ hammer or Kidd kit.

Great idea on the purple mag release! Also which Kidd kit or VQ Hammer do you recommend? Also is it just a drop in or do I need to do any extra polishing etc?

Exactly! A nice light gun for Varmints. I am hoping that having her put it together and be "Her Gun" will help her too enjoy the sport a little more.

Here is a drop in trigger group, that has a adjustable trigger and mag release.

It depends how much you want to spend. This VQ kit will get you down to roughly 2.25lbs and is pretty much drop-in but it won't eliminate the last bit of creep.

I haven't tried the single stage Kidd but if I were on a $105 budget I'd probably give it a shot. I have the 2 stage Kidd but it's big bucks.

Right in the middle is a Clark Custom or Brimstone stage-2 trigger job. I've had Clark do two of mine and they came back with a crisp 2.25lb trigger.

Looks great! I will be receiving my Boyd's Blaster in Applejack on Thursday. Awesome looking stocks and at a great price. I hope they function as good as they look.
