Ive been wanting to build a suped-up 22 for a long time now. But Im curious to know yalls opinions on how to go about it. Ive always liked the idea of a Volquartsen laminate stock, with a free floating fluted barrel. What kind of distance can i expect it to tack-drive out to. Whats the best platform to start with. Which barrel is the best to go with? Lots of questions but id like yalls opinions and pics of youre rigs as well. Thanks in advance guys.
It would indeed. With a good barrel and ammo it liked you can make pretty small holes out to 100, much be on that and it gets dicey. Since you're looking at mods, and a Volquartsen stock I can only assume you mean a 10/22. With 10/22's the sky is the limit. The main thing is either get a good aftermarket trigger, or get a kit to fix the stock one. Pick the stock of your choice. These days I'm of the mind that an aftermarket extractor is a must have as well. Then a mag release of whatever style/design you like.
Now, if you wanted a sweet 22 LR target type rifle straight out of the box (just as an alternative) you might look at an Anschutz. The problem is they're pricey as hell. They're worth it though.

I got a half dozen high end 10/22's. They all shoot 1000 yards lights out. I ain't kiddin, maybe lying though. Seriously, don't try to shoot past 100 yards with 22lr, it just makes you look silly. Be happy with a 50 yard tack driver that never, ever misses. Shoot that rifle 100 yards and be disappointed. It will definitely spread and consistency is all but lost.
