Seen any 10/22 deals?

Trying to get a new 10/22 put together so I can hand my old one down to my son. All I've got so far on the new piece is a Hogue overmolded stock, for .920 Bull barrel (won it at a raffle, figured it was as good a starting point as any).

I have yet to figure out which receiver to go with but figured it'd be easiest to pick up a whole new unit from Wallyworld, or wherever's cheapest. Leaning towards the stainless model, and then adding the bigger barrel.


What's the most cost effective, yet good performing barrel? This doesn't have to be a super accurate gun, just as long as it keeps me plinking a little better than the boy . And, of course I want it to have a little bling factor, but not ugly. Will I have any issues with mounting sights to the larger barrel? Trying to stay away from a scope but it might happen in the future.


Suggestions? Pics? etc? I've done the search thing, looking for new ideas here.

Any .920 bull barrel will be fine. The stock 10/22 barrell is suprisingly accurate, youd be suprised.

And your right with the assumption to go pick one up at walmart. You can get the stainless one for about 210, and the regular wood and black one for about 198. Just get that and sell the stock and barrel online that you take off of it. Get some goodies like better trigger pack and extended magazine release. And get some aftermarket sights for it. The stock ones are all but impressive.

Overall if you have the bullbarrel already you can get out for 300 or so easy.

Looks like you can get that stock for 57 bucks here:

Thats about as cheap as i can find it for the bull barrell, I can get the one that accepts the stock barrel for about 50.

I was going to say walmart... I had NO IDEA walmart sold guns until I looked last night.

I'm thinking about picking up either a Mossber .308 or .270 from them and a 22 for screwing around

They can even special order some guns too

Ask to have a look at their catalog and you may find something that you like.

Try these guys: www.hornetproducts.com

I'm thinking about trying the pistol kit with a 16.5" barrel for ground squirrel blasting.

totalkos, I already have that part. I put my ticket in the bucket at a raffle a couple years ago with the understanding it was for the standard barrel version. When I got it home, they'd given me the bull barrel one so it's just been sitting. The green would've been neat though--mine's matte black.


Glad you brought up that barrel length NVS, I knew I would forget something...I've seen the 16.5" with 1:16, and a 19.5" with 1:16, and a 20" with 1:18. Barrels were the same price. Pros/cons of length, rifling? Again this isn't a competition gun, just a fun plinker and ferrel cat remover.

As good of a start as any, probably not any cheaper than a new one from wallyworld in the end though.

The rifle in the pic has a 20" Green Mountain barrel that was only about 70 bucks. It's a decent barrel for the money. The stock is a Boyd, the trigger is a Volquartsen target trigger, and the internals contain a Power Custom hammer and sear kit. It also has a Volquartsen recoil buffer, which keeps the bolt stop pin from getting beat up from shooting thousands of rounds. The barrel clamp block is also a Clark as the factory one cracks easily if overtightened. The 20" barrel is fine for a bench gun but too heavy to carry in the field. I'm currently putting together the parts to finish another one for squirrel hunting which will have a 16" barrel. I also have the Hogue stock for it. After I get everything together, I plan to do a writeup on how to do a trigger job with most of the stock components. I almost forgot to mention that all 10-22 recievers are drilled and tapped for mounts so installing a scope is very easy.

Academy Sports generally has better prices than Wal Mart. I got mine for $158 when Wal Mart had them for $183.

Hornetproducts has BBLs starting at $89.

A .22LR burns most of its powder completely at around 10" of barrel so barrels longer than 16.5" are just for looks/balance.

It is true. They both have an aluminum reciever. One is anodized silver the other is blued.

That's interesting... so they truly are just for preferred looks. Which one would Duracoat adhere better to? Or, which would prepare easier for duracoat?


I keep re-reading those threads--I may just go nuts with the airbrush instead.

Alrighty... I think I'll try and go a different direction with this.


Is it possible to just buy the receiver, trigger mech, etc? Maybe something already hopped up? I've found the titanium kits, most of the little replacement/upgrade parts, but nothing to replace the receiver... ideas how to go here? I'm looking at dropping $230, plus the cost of a barrel ($80-190) right off the bat if I go with the Academy new price on this thing...


I finally found a pawn shop here in town that had some. They expected $299 for a new 10/22, and $199 (sale price $159) for a used one that had obviously been restocked after sitting through a fire. They didn't bother to replace the magazine though, it was still melted in place...no bluing left whatsoever.

Ruger and other custom shops put out rifles factory like what your talking about. I doubt Ruger will sell you just a reciever, but you can get one with all the fancy stuff right off the bat for around $450.

Several folks gave you good advice. Buy a new one at Wal-mart, Gander Mountain, Academy or whatever big chain store you have available. You will pay much more for the rifle if you buy it in pieces. The reciever will cost you more than a complete rifle. The trigger group alone is about 100.00 . I've built five of them so far, and I've looked at all the avenues to build one cheap. The last time I bought one at a gun show, I thought I got a deal at 169.00 for a used one, and then I found a new one for 10.00 less. You should not have much trouble finding a new one for less than 200.00 no matter where you live.

Ruger's new MSRP is $250. A good shop should be able to get you one for $200-240. I was suprised they went up so much. Did you try posting in the Wanted section here and offering $150?


But while on www.Ruger.com I saw this:

Always reasonable at Bi-Mart if you have one. I think the blued is 180 on a normal day but they frequently have $20 off sales.
