Default Building 10/22s like AR 15s?

Is building a precision 10/22 as easy as assembling an AR? I see 10/22 receivers, barrels, and other parts everywhere. I thought it would be a neat project to start, but then I wondered if it needs to be assembled by a knowledgeable gunsmith.

I have built several myself and it is pretty easy. Most all the parts out there are "bolt on". The barrels, for example, are slip fit with 2 bolts holding a "clamp". Triggers can be had complete or as parts. The bolt is probably the hardest thing to get out of the receiver and back in but is easy enough after seeing it done on YouTube. They are fun projects and there are tons of options. I say dive in and have fun.

I would have saved a lot of money if I bought a TCR22 right off the bat...

Very easy. I put a Kidd barrel on mine. It's the aluminum barrel with the stainless steel liner. Light weight and super accurate. I throw a red dot on it and shoot steel matches or out a scope on it to shoot squirrels.

Isn't more like assemble?

Too bad Ruger doesn't make a really good 10/22 out of the box.

Yes, youíre right. In retrospect the word assemble and build arenít precisely synonyms when it comes to mechanics. I would disagree that out-of-the-box 10/22s arenít good - though thatís subjective I know.

I just want to put together a Ferrari instead of a Honda.
