Not another 1022!

Recommended Posts

Pretty simple set up:

 

Green Mountain 28" barrel

PWS T-Rex stock (on sale for 115.00 through Hawktech Arms)

DNZ (High) one piece scope mount

Simmons Whitetail Classic 6.5-20x50mmAO <30ft (was on sale through MidwaryUSA for 100.00) 

Trigger job by TGOr Plinker4life

 

Now the tuning of bedding and ammo begins.

 

Incidentally, if your .22LR supports such a large scope these Midway-only Whitetail classics work really well for the money.

I might trick out my 10/22 one of these days. If so I think I'd like something along those lines. I'm sure even I could hit a bullseye or two with a barrel that reaches half way across the range. :D

Might be I go tacticool with it, or just leave it stock. Figured I'd have figured it out by now but still have no idea. Too many good choices.

The Boyd's Tacticool is a really nice stock for the money. Midway sells unfinished ones at a good price.  I am working on a putting together a nice 10/22 for a Nashville doc who is a TGOr that utilizes a Tacticool.  I spent a good bit of time on his unfinished Tacticool.  Barrel and bolt are off getting accurized. I'll post up some pics in a couple of weeks.

 

The problem with 10/22 barrels is that you are limited with either 28/29" or 22" or less.  Back in the heyday of bolt 22s by Remington, 26" or so was common.  I cut a 29" barrel to 18.5" but should have cut it to 26".  I am reluctant to cut this 28" to 26" as it shoots pretty well as is.  Really quiet with subsonics and pellet gun quiet with Colibras.

All I can say is...."Nice!"

 

Someday I'll get my 10/22 out again. But I been saying that for over a year.

Kidd will cut any barrel length you want I think. I've had great luck with my barrel they did and the machine work is amazing!
