Umm... that is a rather broad brush to paint with.... and you should NOT be sanding anything.

Heat up the receiver with a heat gun, liberally grease the barrel tenon, put some thought into how to mark the 2 components for timing purposes (so the extractor lines up with the notch in the barrel), and proceed confidently and quickly.

If your barrel is an interference fit with the receiver, rejoice, that is a GOOD thing.

Hi OP. Just finished building a 10/22. Had to add the popular 10/22 to my collection since I've been shooting 22lr lately due to the high cost of ammo. Pieced everything together with aftermarket parts; nothing original. Ran me about $1.6k otd with the scope. Too bad I cannot easily copy and paste pictures on this forum. From my research, this price tag is considered low to medium grade for a decent 10/22 build. My recommendation would be to build. If you buy stock, you will eventually upgrade at some point with all the aftermarket parts available.

Keystone fluted and threaded bull barrel: $250.00
Tactical Innovations receiver plus FFL and tax: $300.00
Tactical Innovations trigger assembly: $180.00
Tactical Innovations bolt assembly: $115.00
Tactical Innovations charging handle: $35.00
Barrel muzzle brake: $50.00
Luth AR modular MCA 22 chassis: $200.00
V Block / Pins: $20.00
Scope Rings: $30.00
Scope 6-24X50: $300.00
Bipod: $50.00
Magazines 3 pack: $50.00

Total: $1,580.00

I've played with a bunch of 10/22s, and never had to sand or turn down a barrel, or even use heat.

For barrels, budget you can't go wrong with green mountain. The heavy taper is supposed to be excellent. For high dollar, everyone I know likes Kidd barrels best.
I prefer the kidd bolt vs volquartsen. Their stuff is just well thought out and made well, IMO. Their triggers are second to none, but possibly too light for an unseasoned kid to use.
I tried to teach my daughter with my old anschutz 54, but she couldn't work the trigger then.
She went from a junky bolt gun to lever action to 10/22 now. She also prefers the stock barrel and wood.

For a takedown option on non takedown guns, archangel makes a neat stock which folds down and locks forwards at the wrist. The barrel becomes quick release and stows in the butt. I got one for the kids' 10/22, but my daughter just prefers the wood stock. I'm proud I think 😆

For a fancy target/tactical stock, check out the Gray Birch stocks. I handled one and they're pretty awesome. Would go well on a high dollar build. Or a Boyd's with adjustments.

Heat the receiver. Never sand or remove material from a barrel to fit it.

I think the only thing nobody has mentioned is the transfer fees?

I went with keystone fluted bull barrel from eBay. Fit super tight on the tactical innovation receiver. I did NOT sand. This is made to fit snug tight. I recommend freezing the barrel and heating up the receiver. Apply a little grease and use a rubber mallet to hammer it in.

If your actual goal is to teach kids to shoot, you are attacking a tiny nail with a 50lb sledgehammer IMHO.

Stock 10/22
Uncle Mike's Sling Swivels
GI Cotton Sling
Tec Sights TS-100

That's all that's needed for Appleseed and all that's needed to teach anyone how to shoot a rifle. I have taught my own kids and a few other kids how to safely shoot and I too prefer to start them on a bolt action single shot.

Semi-autos are so much fun to plink with, they can have a blast, burn through a lot of ammo, but totally unnecessary for teaching them hold, aim, breathing, sight picture and trigger control. If you are disciplined with them, you can do the same with a 10/22 but the temptation to just blast away is always there with a semi auto, but not with a single shot bolt action.

If your motive is to spend $1k or more, building a sweet, customized 10/22 for yourself, using the justification of teaching kids to shoot to spend $$ on building a .22, go sick!

Agree. I prefer to teach shooters and develop some marksmanship before moving to a semi-auto.

Personally, have taught a bunch of kids(my kids friends, Scouts mostly) with the bolt action Mossberg my dad got it the early 1950's for Christmas. It still outshoots stock 10/22's.

After that, just use a stock 10/22 with the addition of Tech Sights.

For kids, I highly recommend the 4H shooting program too.

But if you have an ulterior motive of wanting a 10/22, then go for it.

Sort of agree. But there's sooooo much more out there...

I would look at a 22 lever action and a 22 pump to throw in the mix.

I've shot a lot of 22's; bolt action, single shot, semi-auto. But when my buddy brings out his pump 22lr, I put the 10/22 down and shoot the pump. It's a ton of fun! If you haven't tried one you're really missing out
