    10/22 stock

    Have been thinking I might make my own stock for the 10/22 being a leftie I'm using a ambidextrous stock...know 10/22 aren't the most accurate rifle etc but figure a 22 is a good place to start.

    Anyone tried this before? Done a quick search and couldn't find much. Got a nice slab of totara that looks a likely candidate. The archangel is a bit too 'tactikool' but like the look of some of the revolution laminate jobs. Would still be an a cat so no pistol grip but a more vertical grip would be nice.

    Can see this project taking a while but what the heck if it works I might just do one for the cz455 in 17hmr.

    Plan at the moment to draw it out and jigsaw the blank out then get cranking with the files and sandpaper. Got a factory stock to get magwell trigger guard dimension from but if anyone has tried this pictures would be great

    nothing wrong with the 10/22 accuracy, I have shot hundreds of Hares with one, just as good as any other brand I have owned, and there have been a lot.

    Good idea with the stock, will be keen to hear how it goes.
    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    See a good idea on u tube, build a rail in for the torch clamp on the foreshore for torch or most a short piece of pi rail

    Another good idea spotted, use an old wooden stock and cut out the magwell/trigger and then glue a new bit of wood round it so the fine details work is done.

    Anyone got a cracked "firewood" 10/22 stock lying around? Sure could do it all by hand but would save an evening pissing around with the Dremel and router

    My DPT 22 can is a muzzle forward can, so no overbarrel measurement required.

    Thinking I might whip an inch or so off the barrel while it's in bits and threading it. Gotta work out ideal length of pull then hope can can go inside a very freefloating barrel channel

    If you are looking at fully free floating the barrel, you might want to consider a second point to secure the action to the stock. The 10/22 only has a single action screw in it's standard form, but you already know that.
    I drilled and tapped a hole in the back of my 10/22 action that doubled as a cleaning port so you can pass a rod through the action, and also secured the back of the action in the stock. The threaded hole got a round head screw put in it, and the back of the stock relieved so the screw would fit with lots of play. That cavity then got filled with bedding compound to a perfect fit.
    I'd take photos, but I got rid of the 10/22 in favour of a CZ.

    @quentin, cheers will bear that one in mind. Make sure I have enough 'meat' there to play. Won't do it myself as I don't have a tapping kit. At the moment with lengths of pull / barrel/ suppressor etc will be looking at losing 30mm office barrel and getting it re threaded for a new dpt.... Got a few cheap ones lying around but figure if I'm making the stock I can spend a bit more of 'accesories'

    I did exactly as quentin suggested. Very effective and easy to do. The 10/22 receiver is aluminum so you don't need an expensive tap to thread the hole, you can just buy one cheapo tap of the size you need. http://http://www.nzhuntingandshooti...bedding-30692/
    On barrel length, you can go pretty short if you are only using subs, mines 12" and seems to work.

    ^^ That saves me finding pictures to explain it
    The boyds evolution stock takes free floating a barrel to the extreme, so thats a perfect solution in that stock.
