    Whose got a 10/22?

    I've had a few of these over the years, and all have been left factory stock. I've never seen the need to rebuild them as some folks do, probably because mine are just tin can chasers. This one is the only one I own now, an All Weather stainless with a black synthetic stock, and it suits me just fine.

    Well, there was the one thing I wanted to change, I added an extended magazine release lever to make my old hands work better at getting the magazines out of the well. Some time back a thread was coming through here where someone mentioned replacing the standard bolt stop (buffer), to prevent the bolt from slamming into the factory steel stop. I mentioned that I had picked up a nylon bolt of the proper size to put in it's place, to somewhat soften the contact.

    Well fellow member rclint, being a typical Marlin Owners Forum member, always willing to help another member, offered to send me a urethane buffer. I thought that was pretty darn nice of him! To top it off even more, he provided me with a custom made bolt lever with 3 different custom handles that he makes!

    This is the one I have on it now, and I just had to share it with you guys and gals. I'm darn proud of it and the way it spruces up my plain ole 10/22 rifle! It sure makes it easier to grab and pull back when its time to make a can dance a jig! Looks mighty snazzy too! He gave me another one that is just the opposite of this one, and even one made from titanium! Thanks rclint! It took me awhile to get this beauty out to shoot, but the urethane buffer and sexy bolt handle sure make a difference in looks and performance. It seems much softer shooting than ever before (if you can imagine that)

    Anybody jealous?

    Nice looking rifle! I bought the sporter model (walnut stock) a few years back & I love it. The first change I made was to remove the sling swivels and replace them with just the studs. Looks better to me. I can add one of several slings I have.

    Then I got a wild hair and bought the Volquartzen target trigger and hammer kit. This really helped the trigger pull and creep. And yes, I also bought a synthetic buffer from Midway!

    You have a long way to go. I'm waiting for my Gemtech Barrel and Silencer comb to clear ATF. I have a few 10/22 and 10/22 Mag. But the take down model is getting the build in silencer. All the other ones have thread barrels, even the take down which was cut down to 16.25 and thread.

    Kraynky, there are two really good things about the 10/22. The first is that they are modular, and the market for upgrading and customizing them is infinite. There is no end to what you can do to a 10/22. The second thing? You don't have to do any of it if you don't want to. It's a perfectly fine 22 in its own right.

    I have two of them. One has a new BX trigger, but other than that, they're both stock.

    LOL! So you're one of those guys! I'll probably get a better scope, but I've already done more than I set out to do when I got it. I guess if I could control my ammo like centerfire, I might be inclined. But I buy the cheapo ammo and just blast away. I have a hard time paying the prices they are asking for premium 22 ammo, just to punch holes in cans and dirt clods. The market is certainly wide open for this platform though, for those that want to go all in.

    Always did want one in 22 magnum.

    Karynky,

    FUN GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I bought a Clark Custom 77/22 some years back because I wanted something to shoot tiny groups just for fun.

    Then maybe 5 years ago, I got the wild hair to buy a 10/22 just for fun and not do anything to it. Ya, like that wasn't going to happen.

    First was some bolt upgrades, extractor and springs and of course a bolt buffer while I was at it. Then --------- I like good triggers so in went a Timney trigger group.

    Then --------------- I saw on Rimfire Central that Feddersen had a bit of a sale on their barrels so I bought a .920 - 16.25" fluted barrel which meant I needed another stock.

    Found a used Fajen laminated stock and not liking the overly long wood with the short barrel, cut off 3" adding back a walnut forend tip of 1 1/2".

    Then --------------- the forend just seemed overly bulky so off to the router table to cut in finger grooves on each side of the barrel.

    Put in three hole for the forward sling/bipod attachment and WOW was the result great.

    Out shot the Clark Custom with it's Walther barrel and is so much lighter and handier that the CRuger went home with a son.

    The Feddersen barrels are awesome and this rifle that wasn't going to happen is ever so very accurate!

    Trick em out or not, these are fun rifles!

    I have 2 One from 1976 and another from 1995. The newer rifle wears a Simmons 3x9x39 scope and the Bicentennial rifle uses Tech Sights.

    The venerable 10/22 from what I understand is far and away the best selling 22 of all time. The SGC where I used to help out retired one of their rental 10/22s a few years back that had over 1,000,000 documented rounds thru it. I disassembled it for cleaning before they sold it off and it was still in remarkably good condition! IMO: One of the all time great guns!
