Ruger 10/22 barreled action...

17 posts in this topic

So I bought the Delux archangel stock for my 10-22....everything there is great!!

However, now I have a nice lightweight stock just sitting there...all alone and empty inside :)

(yea, its def 2am, you can tell! Ha ha)

Anyways, what are some affordable options to get another 10-22 going?

My wife enjoys shooting so I want to get one (pink of course!) set up for her!

Anybody sell just a cheap, barreled 10-22 action?

I mean, seeing as how you can find new 10-22's for $219 I don't want to go crazy here!

Thanks in advance TGO'ers....

Glad to hear you like the Archangle kit. I've had my eye on one.

I've been picking up parts of of eBay as I see something interesting. Picked up a cheap, jeweled bolt, last week. I'm currently watching two auctions for barrels.

I also see parts come up on Craigslist all the time.

Good luck!

Once in while the are in the classifieds here: http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/index.php They don't last long.

Other than finding a beater 10/22 for a 100 bucks somewhere used there isn't such a thing as a cheap aftermarket receiver although at least half a dozen companies make them. Problem with a used OEM receiver it is the FFL item and all fees/costs applies.

Those OEM Ruger carbine stocks sometimes can be sold for 30-40 bucks.

Probably the cheapest way to go is to try and sell your carbine stock and put the money towards a new or used complete 10/22.

FWIW, I've given up on finding a decent priced 10/22 action. There seems to be only two ways to go:

1. buy a new 10/22 base model and strip it out

2. buy a custom action and pay a ton

I'm opting for option 1. I keep my eyes open in the classifieds all the time, but as soon as I finish my current AR build, I'll probably just hit Wal-Mart or Academy and pick up the base model with the boat paddle synthetic stock.

Plus, I'll have all the parts necessary to repair/replace/build another should that ever be necessary. Worst case scenario, I can sell the factory parts to offset the cost of the build.

I looked and looked for 2years. I was given basically everything but the the receiver. When I could find them for sale people wanted 140+ and that was just a stripped one, a complete receiver was180+. I was trying to do some builds for a camp for gun safty. I gave up and just gave the camp the money to go out and buy new ones. The cheapest I could build one using used parts was $190. I looked everywhere and people where jast asking a fortune for parts. Best prices I found were $90 for stripped receiver, $30 for complete bolt, $40 for complete lower, $20 for barrel, $10 vblock and screws, $10 stock, $10 for charring handle and bolt spring assembly. It just sucks you can almost buy a new one cheaper.

Just a note. You probably have the term mixed up with the standard polymer stock on the basic carbine. The boat paddle stock hasn't been on a 10/22 for maybe 10 years or so, and wasn't made all that long. Matter of fact. they're worth ~ $65-100 just for the stock.

you might want to ebay that stock, there are several with bids on them for over $30 and still have days left. The synthetics are hitting about $50 when they close. I even saw one whith a super cheap sling on it close at $80. I was dumbfounded.

Yeah, OS, you're right. I just meant the typical synthetic. Forgot that the "boat paddle" design was the hollowed out one from a while ago.

Wonder why the boat paddles go for so much? Are they really any better or just collectable? They look kind of neat I guess...

Just collectible, mostly methinks.

I bought a used 10/22 from TGO member couple years back, it had one on it. Personally didn't much like it, seemed narrow against shoulder, couldn't easily put standard sling base in it. So when I found they were worth something, I sold it on eBay for more than the Hogue overmold I put on it.

The boat paddle was used on other Ruger rifles, too, and there were also different styles. Here's one with ribbed inserts and showing the factory sling adapters that came on some, but you couldn't buy them separately anywhere. This one also has a nice padded butt which AFAIK the 10/22 variants never had.

Somehow I knew you'd be the one to answer that. I was hoping there was some hidden magic behind the trend that would make me instantly want to go find one, now I'm glad there isn't. I need another 10/22 but not for awhile.

I see you can buy a new Ruger OEM receiver from Shooters Discount for 105.00 when they have them. Otherwise it would seem to me buying a used complete 10/22 would make more sense if one could find one.

Mac,

What kind of barrel are you using and what does the rig look like?

TS fluted. It's an X-Ring rifle, but the guy I got it from dumped the laminate stock and used a lightweight poly stock. I'll take a couple shots of it tonight and post them up, if you're interested.

Mac

ETA: I would have preferred the laminate stock... BUT, the whole rig is SUPER light weight.
