    I have decided to play a new game: How much money can I spend on a Ruger 10/22?

    I will post shots of it stock, then parts as I recieve them from various suppliers, perhaps a few shots of me screaming or crying as I install said parts, and the final build.

    So far I have coming a Revolution wood laminate Stock, Green Mountain Barrel, VQ Extractor, VQ hammer kit, Extended bolt handle, bolt buffer, scope base, rings, Bushnell 3200 Elite 4-12x40mm A/O scope and 3 Butler Creek 25 round mags.

    No mods. Maybe scope.

    I've shot the shit out of my friends .22 and it is cheap fun so I thought i'd pick one up and do somthing fun with it. I hate iron sights on a it so I figured when im adding a scope I might as well put on a decent barrel so I can get some accuracy out of it, then it spiralled from there

    I am just going to use mine for bunny hunting. I love the iron sights on the 10/22.

    .22's are gay for all intensive purposes. Unless rabbit hunting, which I don't do.

    Because you think they are cute and have wiggly little noses and you want to hug and cuddle them with your burlap wearing friends at PETA conventions while drinking Boones wine and listening to the best of Lillith Fair.

    nah I just don't want to eat them, mainly because I'm not a fan of stew.

    A 10/22 is a great little rifle. I have been in the market for a used one for some time now. Just the basic model, they retail for around $225.OO new, with higher end models going up and up.

    I'd spend money on upgrades for a gun that is useful for something more than plinking pop cans and rabbits. But that's just me.

    I want to do both of those things with it. Also, they are comparatively cheap and easy to get parts and whatnot to dick around with, which was kinda the point. I know what they are like, I've wanted one since I was 12 and was the first gun I shot.

    My 10/22 is stock, I did have a scope on it but it was a pain in the ass to get quick shots off. I use my 10/22 for all the little stuff rabbits, grouse, the grouse out here are stupid and wont fly away they just sit there and make easy targets for the 22.

    There are a ton of things you can do to the 10/22 but mine shoots just fine stock so I will not be spending a small fortune to get a sub MOA gun when minute of rabbit/grouse is all I need.

    The rifle, scope and rings came in yesterday. It took me 4 hours to put it all together (2 of which was trying to put the trigger assembly back together after putting in the new hammer and springs) The new hammer/spring set really drops the pull, from 8 pounds to about 3, a nice clean break. The extractor was a bitch to replace too, i'm not even sure what finally got it to work. Everything else just poped into place.

    I'll post the pics when I get home today, I was too tired after it all to actually post it.
