The 10/22 Continental Project
Posted earlier this month, we took a new production Ruger walnut International stock, a Pike Arms Aluminum trigger housing and trigger, a Kingston Armory steel receiver and factory barrel both with a high polish blued finish. See the last post on this build here.
The Finger Groove Sporter Project
A vintage factory walnut Finger Groove Sporter stock, A Pike Arms aluminum trigger housing, some vintage trigger parts, a factory take off barrel and a Kingston Armory steel receiver both with a high polished blued finish. The final page of the project here
I have since found an early Southport marked barrel with original sights, original aluminum trigger housing, vintage bolt assembly and an older BX1 magazine (with black follower).
The 10/22 Finger Groove Sporter Tribute Project
I am taking an ugly, painted and modified stock and transformed it into a beautiful tribute to the original.
I added grooves to the forend, some similar sling swivels, a grip cap and some refinement to the stock. This one is still under construction, so look for a post on this one in the near future.
A picture of the progress
Pink 10/22 aka The Girly Rifle Project
It started out as a standard stainless 10/22 with the factory pink laminated carbine stock. I added stainless scope mounts, a pink camo covered scope. Mods include a polished and jeweled bolt, an aluminum knurled charging handle and some custom tinted magazines.
My daughter is full grown, but not a big person, so I wanted to build a stock to fit her better. Here was the first attempt, see the final post of the build here
Someone already shortened it and painted it pink. I will open up the butt stock and fore end, then sand the stock bare and stain it pink.
Ava The 10/22 Target Rifle Project
A factory beech wood stock modified with some poplar wood and body filler, polished aluminum receiver, trigger housing and stainless barrel, see the final build post here
The 10/22 Spencer Rifle Tribute
A factory stock modified to a straight grip, tapered forend and brass accoutrements, see the final build post here
I made a custom sling from an old leather belt
I blued the bolt and made a custom brass charging handle
Next step might involve a color case hardened steel receiver or possibly a brass receiver.
The 10/22 Hoplophobe Project
A factory beech wood stock, modified to add a pistol grip, some tacticool accessories and you have every hoplophobes nightmare, more details here
The 10/22 LTR Project
Another hoplophobes nightmare, nearly every evil feature they hate. See the final post of the build here
The WAGuns Giveaway Rifle
A 50th Anniversary factory receiver, new take off barrel and a vintage factory walnut stock, see the final build post here
The 10/22 Deluxe Sporter Rifle
I acquired this walnut Deluxe Sporter stock, I thought it would be a perfect home for the barreled action from my Sporter Finger Groove rifle.
Future Projects:The Post Apocalypse 10/22 Project
I was gifted parts from different friends of the blog, including a very beat up stock. I will put them together in an ugly, post apocalyptic fashion
The Ruger SR-22 Project
A lucky gun show find, becomes another project
The 10/22 Sniper Project
I found an ER Shaw 16" bull barrel at a gun show for cheap, then began compiling parts for another build. A big scope, thumbhole target stock, bi-pod and another project is born
The Lightweight 10/22
An 80% bare aluminum receiver, a cut down factory barrel and a factory camo synthetic stock come together in an attempt to make a very light 10/22
The 10/22 Pirate Pistol Project
Something similar to this:
The 10/22 Plains Rifle Project
I acquired a brass crescent butt plate and a brass fore end nose piece. I will fit the brass parts, convert the pistol grip to a straight grip (like the one below), then give it a genuine iron acetate finish.
The 10/22 Zombie Hunter Rifle
Using an old, beat-up factory hardwood stock as the canvas we will experiment with some wood carving, bio-hazard and some Zombie words, then fill in the voids with glow in the dark epoxy.
The 10/22 Classic
I have several factory walnut stocks, I will pick the best one, give it a hand rubbed, sanded in oil finish, use original aluminum barrel band, butt plate and trigger housing. Some original factory sling swivels, a reproduction takedown screw and a new receiver and vintage barrel
