My wife’s birthday is the 6th and she’s always liked shooting, but has taken more interest in wanting to learn more about guns at a deeper level than just shooting. She asks about how they function, what parts are called, etc. so I figured a quick 10/22 build would be perfect for that. Picked up a 10/22 carbine at academy last week, ordered a few parts, and we were off. I had the scope and rings in the safe. Here’s what we put together. Nothing too crazy

*Brand new 10/22 that we only kept the action out of
*Green mountain 16.25” .920 heavy fluted barrel
*Ruger BX Trigger
*Boyd’s At-One gunstock in blackjack
*Ruger factory scope base
*TPS steel rings low
*Nikon Prostaff 7 4-12x40 w/ side focus

All in just under $700 since I had the scope and rings already.

First range trip will be Monday. I’m expecting 1/2” groups at 50 yards based on everything I’ve read about the green mountain barrels.

Wet nice looking gun, minus the noticeable ding in the stock. Green Mountain barrels are good for the money, just heavy. I’m Wanting to replace mine with a carbon fiber barrel.

Good looking rig. She'll be really proud when ya'll get it to the range. Should be a dandy shooter.
