    Hey guys.

    I posted a thread a while back asking for feedback on accurizing my 10/22. The project was originally going to involve a replacement stock, a heavier barrel and a few other things, though the end result ended up being something very different and in my opinion, way better.

    I ended up reshaping the stock and refinishing it with the natural birch (no stain). The barrel is unbanded and freefloated. The receiver is bedded and a leather pressure pad is positioned and tuned under the factory barrel. The trigger has been upgraded with a Volquartsen hammer replacement kit. I also replaced the scope, installed see-thru scope mounts, and mounted sling studs (new black leather sling coming soon too). It is insanely accurate and very pretty. Here is a little before and after:
