22 rifle project

Hi guys,

I'm thinking of buying a 22 rifle for plinking, with also a view of seriously dressing it up.

What could be a good brand? My research tells me that the ruger 10/22 is quite popular; it is said to be durable and reliable, and with many affordable after-market upgrades and accessories (in the US, at least).

I plan to make a worthwhile project out of this. I see a good opportunity to start it this coming gunshow.

I kindly seek your opinions and suggestions.

A good day to all.

Maraming salamat,
MAO.

the ruger 10/22 is the 1911's of .22's

also consider a bolt action with an olympic barrels like the cz's

take a look in the buy and sell thread at 9mx's post. his sis-in-law is selling her walther .22 lr competition rifle

Are you planning to buy a regular 10/22 or a Target model?

Butler Creek sells aftermarket high capacity mags for it. They also sell barrels as well as 10/22 stocks. Clark Custom Guns and Volquartsen offer trigger kits, barrels, scope mounts, and stocks.

Check out the CZ 452 bolt action. Nothing but positive reviews on the internet forums. Like an Anschutz but at a third of the cost. I bought one and I am very happy with it. I had a Ruger 10/22 before. A good gun but being a semi-automatic is not very accurate out of the box.

Another vote for the 10/22.

Other rifles maybe more accurate but not so much fun.

My vote goes to Ruger 10/22. With a polished hammer (home trigger job), I can hit marble sized targets all day long without cleaning. Of course it really is dirty after 500 rounds!

Mang Danny,

Is there a website or a link for the 10/22 home trigger job, or did you just do it yourself? What scope did you mount on the rifle?

Thanks!

Many thanks for the feedback guys.

Further research in other fora made me drool over the dolled-up 10/22s, specifically the porn at rimfirecentral.

I wonder though if such accessories/upgrades are available in the philippines. Also, what scopes are best for the 22 rifle?

Magandang araw,
Mao.

I remember during the last gun show that Trust Trade was selling a dressed up 10/22. I don't know about the specific hardware but it did sport a s/s bull barrel, a laminated thumbhole stock, scope and bipod. Ran for about 75k.

Re the scope, I suggest you get one with an adjustable parallax, or one with a parallax set at 50 yards. HTH

I believe scope is the only dress up you can do on a Remington.
I have a bolt action Marlin and accurate at 50 yds with the right ammo.

Isuzu,
I just polished the sharp edges and surfaces of the hammer engagement areas. More tips from "www.rimfirecentral.com". My scope is Simmons 3-9X 32 mm. with Weaver see-thru rings, bought from a specialty store called Wal-Mart.

Taurus,
75K for a 10-22?? Ala eh, presyo na nang AR-15 dito yan !

Vega,
Swabe ba ang bolt action mechanism nang Marlin? Kumusta naman ang finish nung stock?

this one..

http://www.marlinfirearms.com/Firear...ding/7000.aspx

if you just want to shoot cheap ammo into one hole.

the ruger will soak up money. this one just shoots.

i'm sorry you need to get rid of extra money.

you must not be married right now.

Thanks, Mang Danny! I'll definitely look into the scope set up and improving the 10/22's trigger pull. I'll be taking my non-restricted firearms course in August, and I'll be buying a 10/22.

BTW, is the trigger pull of the Standard 10/22 different from the Target 10/22?

I'll also be checking if our Wal-Mart sells scope rings here. Iba ang rules dito sa Canada. They used to sell firearms at Wal-Mart stores here.

Remington have corrected this with the new magazine. If you have the old one just send it back and they will replace with the new one.

In time the action will be smooth. When I first got it the stock looks like plastic finish. With lots of handling nag-mukhang kahoy din.

Found these at www.rimfirecentral.com :

http://www.tech-sights.com/ (nice AR-type sights for the 10/22)

http://www.gmriflebarrel.com/catalog...rTargetBarrels

Just like EC said, "the ruger 10/22 is the 1911's of .22's"

There's just tons of 10/22 parts out there.

As far as Ruger is concerned, not much difference in trigger pull between the models mentioned. Volquartsen offers not only trigger parts but the whole trigger group.

If you don't control yourself, you'll end up spending more on accessories than the rifle itself. I find it fun to shoot an inexpensive .22 among people shooting $300+ tricked out .22's.

Thanks again, Mang Danny. Found out in the Rimfire Central forums that most people buy the standard 10/22 and work on them. Some barrels are even priced the same or more expensive than the rifle itself. The Target model has the same trigger than the Standard model.

I read at the other forum that Bass Pro Shops are having a July 4th sale on the 20" 10/22s for about $170.00. That's a pretty good deal.

10/22

I have always been a fan of .22
You can do plinking all day and it doesn't put hole in your pocket.

Here is my 10/22. it took me 2 years to get this far waiting for upgrade parts.

Band of Glockers

It has power custom competition trigger kit, volquartsen auto bolt release, extended mag release, extended cocking handle, power custom scope base, urethane bolt buffer, hogue overmoulded stock, and lothar walther bull barrel. recently installed a new scope from meuller (APV)

Butler creek 10/22 upgrades has a bad reputation. stay away from it such as their "carbon fiber barrel"

You can't go wrong with ruger 10/22

Some of my pistols from ruger

Mark 3 22/45
Band of Glockers

Mark 2 Competition
Band of Glockers


And for 9k, you can get an armscor semi-auto rifle. It gets most of the abuse among my collections and still going strong.
