That's a good looking rifle. I've built 10 of them so far. Each one different than the others. Each one with its own personality.The Ruger 10/22... the Barbie Doll for men... "accessories optional".
This 10/22 dates back to 1976, and was my first rifle. It stayed completely stock until a few years ago, when the customizing bug hit me. There are times
when I rethink things and contemplate buying a newer 10/22 to put all of the custom stuff on, and return this one back to original.

Thanks!That's a good looking rifle. I've built 10 of them so far. Each one different than the others. Each one with its own personality.
I have a few myself. Mostly Volquartsen components. I don't post pictures as a rule however,
Your optic is way too high above the centerline of the barrel to be much good BTW.... and a recoil pad? Surely you jest.
You had me wondering about the stock. I have a number of Revolution stocks myself, and thought I recognized the profile. But the customization you'd done had me thinking it might be an old Fajen stock. I like it!Thanks!
The stock started out as an off the shelf Evolution stock. I customized it by reshaping the forend to a beavertail style forend, and then added a Redwood Burl tip.

On the reverse side, the Monte Carlo check piece is covered with Redwood Burl veneer to match the forend tip.

I have, merely out of curiosity. With the right barrel it's consistent enough, but naturally being a .22LR there's a lot of holdover. I keep the 10/22's at 100 yards or less, anything beyond that I'll use something centerfire. I've used .30-06, .308 and .243 for years and years, but with the condition of my spine I no longer enjoy using them. That, and the current cost and availability of certain calibers makes me all the more willing and happy to use the 'mere' .22LR. All I do is target shoot anyway, so I figure why spend more to make holes? And they're so much damned fun. I have a T/C Contender and one of its barrels is a 14" in .223. If I shoot anything beyond 100 yards I've gotten into the habit of using that.I usually shoot it 25 to 100 yards in that configuration. I haven't tried to push it further, yet.
I love mine, 10/22 Deluxe, used it rabbit hunting in Maine many years.
