Building my wife a semi budget custom 10/22 for her birthday next month. Itís not a surprise as I let her help pick out parts. She really wanted a pink stock, so I found the coolest one I could find. Boydís at-one with the adjustable LOP and cheek weld. Itís dark pink and grey laminate, actually looks pretty cool. So build is as follows.
Brand new 10/22 carbine from academy (on sale this week $189) online only free ship to store
Boydís at-one stock
Green mountain 16.5Ē Black fluted .920Ē barrel
Rifle comes with a weaver base, and I have a leapers AO scope with illuminated mildot reticle that will go on top.
She initially was wanting a M&P 15-22, but I wanted her to have a 10/22 since aftermarket parts are everywhere. We started looking at the 10/22 chassis systems out there that would give her all their ergonomics of an AR with the reliability of the Ruger. Those all looked cheap and the action sat inside of the shell and I expected poor accuracy based on the designs. Showed her the Boydís stock and she loved it. Then I realized I could get a green mountain barrel for less than $150 and I told her I was going to go all on in the rifle and she said go for it.
Iím guessing that in 3 or 4 months Iíll have a matching rifle in a different color.
Should have it put together just in time for her birthday on the 6th.
Iíll post pics once itís put together.
