We also love our Ruger bolt-action 10/22's , aka our Ruger American Rimfires. Uses 10/22 mags, has the interchangeable stock pieces (being able to easily change the LOP is great for the aforementioned Scouts), and are just as accurate as our 10/22's.

I have a set of Tech-Sights for the 10/22 that I haven't installed yet.....think M-1 style military sights.

Just put some on my Take-Down. Be careful with the front site, it may be tough, and require heat.

I chose the actual Magpul X22 stock in FDE and put my Redfield glass on it and the Caldwell bipod.
Love this thing!




I think in the case the clone is better!!
I just bought this one as well as a suppressor host. Pretty nice little rifle. Ill shoot mine tonight. Seems to be an upgrade on the 10/22. Not crazy about the factory Magpul stock though.

It definitely has a lot going for it. A plus or a negative, depending how you see it, is the receiver. The rail is built in, so you cant do a bullpup conversion or anything else that goes around the receiver. That being said, there are also no screw holes on top mine if I recall as the rail is integrated. The factory Magpul designed stock is OK, but, I wanted a longer LOP, so I found a smokin deal on a used Magpul hunter stock. The had used it as a mould for pouring his own stock and it had clay residue all over it. A few minutes with a wirewheel and light pressure and its NICE. Id LIKE a biggger scope, but, my next order of things is a supressor if ever we dont need a stamp.

That's good to know about the T/C magazines. I already have an investment in Ruger magazines so I'd probably live with the bolt staying closed.

If you'd like to show it off, then I would love to see how it shoots.

Yeah, I like my 10/22 too, too, too, too. Been thinking about getting a complete Volquartsen rifle in .22WMR or .17 WSM for years and years now. Just need to plant another money tree.

Here is a target from yesterday at 50 yards with 98 rounds put into it. Rifle is a Ruger 10/22 with a Green Mountain bull barrel, Volquartsen fire control, Burris Fullfield 3-9x, Harris bipod, and Hogue overmolded stock.

Rifle was zeroed a decade or more ago for 100 yards. I should probably tweak the scope a little to the right though.

I sort of want to put mine in a standard wood 10/22 stock. Not sure why.

Are you going to keep the iron sights? If so, its got a several inch long sight radius and gorgeously bright fiber optic. While I appreciate wood, I love the composite stock, and am a self Admited Magpul junkie

The Tech-Sights shown in Post 30 are a really nice "irons" option.

I did also. Just for something to do. Found one for $10 at gun show. Stripped the tinted top coat and redid with clear. Looks pretty good for no real effort.
