Ok...I have 2 of TM's 80% 10/22's to build this summer, and today Ruger announces their new takedown 10/22. What are the odds that the TM 80% receivers could be modified to accept the takedown system from this rifle (assuming that the forend and the receiver parts from the system could be purchased independently? I would LOVE to build one of these receivers into a take-down charger...

yes a 80% could be made with interrupted threading on the barrel and receiver

There are already a number of aftermarket systems that work. Someone just posted a list of them.

do you mean this post ? lol

btw the only one i know of that is currently being produced is the AGP the others stopped production long ago
its cool but remember none of the current 10/22 aftermarket barrels and stocks will work with this one , and there are other routes to go with a 10/22 to make it a "take down" , ramline back in the day made one still have it somewhere ....

i do like the idea of the interrupted threads but wish if was in a adapter so stock aftermarket barrels could be used with the system

Just give it time, I'm sure there will be a lot of aftermarket barrels with the interrupted threads.

From the pictures I've seen, it looks like a simple shank that goes into a standard 10/22 receiver that's held in with the V-Block that normally holds in the barrel. Then you've got the magic in the barrel/forend part that mates with it properly.

I'm guessing you could build a takedown as long as Ruger will sell you the mating part that's held in where the V-Block normally goes. Then you just buy a replacement barrel/forend.

That's what I gathered by looking at this exploded view. Look at part #3

Directions here. (https://ruger-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/_manuals/1022TD-3fje6z61.pdf) Have to see if they hit the open market.

It would be great if that adapter ring and replacement v block could go on any receiver!!

only if it becomes a regular shipped weapon , at 700 limited run the aftermarket wont be there , and as you can see there has been a few take down kits over the years that are no longer made due to the novelty wearing off and not selling in any real profitable numbers ...

I dont really see the advantages of this? Is the 10/22 that big that we need to break it down? Cool looking and all but I dont see the need other than want and that is cool if you want one.

Fitting somewhere that you don't want a 30" gun taking up 30" of space. Could be a vehicle or even a backpack.

Of course with the other takedown stocks that have existed over the years never really being very popular(from what I've seen), and the weight, I doubt it'll do very well. Especially since it isn't even a single self contained like an AR-7, or even just being as light as a marlin papoose.

From the looks of that diagram it appears that it might. There's about 10 parts there that you would need including a new stock (or possibly you could cut the original down). I'm really hoping they keep producing these so these could become order-able parts.

Take a look at the drawing again. That's a standard receiver.

Look at it another way: Why on earth would Ruger make a special receiver for a limited edition 10/22 model when they have already been making a standard receiver for 50-something years?

The 10/22 receiver just has a simple hole in the face and a v-block mounting system. It would be much easier to just adapt some new hardware to that simple system than to tool up for a whole new receiver.

And from the diagram, it looks like the only thing special here is a different type of barrel. Everything else is bolt-on. Since Ruger makes their own barrels in-house, I can see how it would be much easier for them to make a new barrel type rather than a new receiver type.

Looks like Ruger actually did modify the receiver a little bit.

They milled flat the "v" block mating surface for installation of their latch mechanism. Check out the photos...
