    Best way to get hold of a ruger 10/22 for a project

    So im in the middle of getting together parts to put together a high end 10/22
    Have got a green mountain match barrel
    Laminated stock
    Will be buying a kidd trigger when money allows I will also be going aftermarket on the buffer
    So I really only need a receiver bolt and spring
    The rest I will be using after market parts
    So what’s the best way to go about this

    Try and find a complete rifle 2nd hand on the cheap and sell the unused parts as parts
    Buy a brand new one and sell parts as brand new unused parts
    Try and find a receiver bolt and spring only

    Suggestions?

    If anyone has anything arround that might suit chuck me a pm I have to rebuild a bit of money now... so won’t be ready to buy for a couple of weeks

    Buy the Kidd spring kit while you are at it as well. Great kit with 3 spring weights to tune the action cycle.

    Yeah they do but I reckon they are 2 expensive $150 for an receiver and another 150 for a bolt
    300 and you still need a couple more bits like springs etc to make a working action
    So looking at closer to 400

    Ive slept on it and I think the best way is to buy a 2nd hand rifle
    That way you have a functioning rifle till you can afford the rest of the parts
    Then sell the factory ones

    all i can say is that barrel to receiver fit is just as important as parts involved. gundoc built me one years back that did 1 moa (at 100m) and it mostly came down to barrel fitting. i would also suggest if using a bull barrel is to have a cantilever scope mount mounted to the barrel not receiver

    damn true! they can
    i had an alloy soldered base on a standard receiver, the barrel was ex factory but seriously mounted on. the damn thing was a tack driver but a little heavy to carry hours on end for small game. currently i run a 10/22 with a choate drag stock and a 3-12 scope i can still nail bunnies at 100m but its mainly because of barrel to action fitting

    100% agree with GT, gundoc tweaked my one as well, mine had a very good barrel / receiver from the factory so I was lucky but the quality seems to have improved over some of the old stuff.
    Gundoc made some other little touch ups and tweaks also, mine is a tack driver with a 5 mm group at 50 mtrs achieved .

    get a secondhand 10/22. the new ones are so expensive it makes little sense to buy them. Or just buy KIDD receiver, bolt etc.

    Why did you choose Green Mountain by the way?
