Build Up - 10/22

Or, as I like to call it, my California Assault Rifle 22, or CAR-22 for short.

If you can't tell, this is a grins and giggles build. Enjoy!

- Clean up the internals
- Stock replacement
- AR parts with homemade wood furniture, cause why not?

Starting Rifle: a synthetic stock Ruger 10/22:


Shown above is some replacement trigger parts from Kidd along with an aluminum trigger housing from Pike Arms.

Old housing vs New:


Old trigger components. I polished up the Kidd parts and it is a world of difference compared to stock: about a millimeter of creep followed by a crisp and clean break that is much lighter than stock. If I can get ahold of a gauge, I'll update.


I put a PMACA Multi Chassis on it. This one is intended to be used with their carbon fiber barrel shroud, but I'm going to see if I can do some nifty wood working for that part.


This AR grip comes from Indignant Arms and I'll be cutting wood scales to fill the grip.


Still to do:

- Cut wood grips
- Cut a wood barrel shroud
- Wood fore grip?
- Get a stock, hopefully one that I can add some accents to.
- Add on that Vortex Strikefire or a red dot and go have some fun plinking

I truly enjoy the 10/22.

Everyone should own at least 1 in my opinion.

I look forward to the progress on this build.

Agreed. I've got another one with a bull barrel on it that I like to shoot from a bench or prone to see how far I can take it.

This one? I wanted to just lay out some coke cans between 5 and 30 yards away and see how fast I can knock into them.
