    Upgraded the 10/22

    With a North Eastern Arms chassis. Have an ACE stock in the mail for it but it isn't designed for a fixed stock so may have to get a collapsable set up and pin it.

    Also need higher rings. The scope barely fits and can't go past 5 power

    Lets see, $500 for the rifle, $50 to get it cut to 12.5" and threaded, $95 for SAK suppressor, $US60 + shipping for Hogue grip and fore end, $US90 + shipping for ACE stock (still in the mail). $189 for the chassis and shipping from Canada. Canada post sucks the big one though, I paid for a delivery time inside two weeks and it took almost 3 months to get here. Either that or it was stuck at customs while they tried to figure out WTF it was, as it was labeled "machined aluminium sample". I was at the point of cutting my losses and moving on with something else.

    I was thinking of getting another 10/22 and upgrading it. I know Tapco and ATI make heaps of accessories for them but they don't ship to NZ. Whats the guts with making a 10/22 more "tacticool"? Where do you get the parts and how much do you pay?

    Honestly if I could do it all over again I would probably just pony the $1200 or so for a SR22. You can get the Nordic chassis that Ruger uses off Brownells. Actually you can get all the parts you need off Brownells. The cheapest way to do it would be to buy an Airsoft gun, pull the guts of it out and make the right cuts so you can drop your 10/22 in. Check out this sight they convert all kinds of airsoft guns to take .22's http://customrifles.info/forum/customized-22-rifles/

    Can't be bothered with 10/22 and having to clean them so often, I cut my losses and went for a bolt action.
