I'm wondering why they went with the 18" instead of the 16+" barrel. My understanding is that the 16+" length is optimum for the 22LR.

I understand that the 18" gives a better sight radius.

Isn't it more complicated with the 10/22 since they have to move the sights?

I went that route with my Integral SBR's...

..but it is a considerably more expensive & time consuming choice.

We even debate Integral SBR vs. Suppressed Take-down in that thread.


That being said...

..it has been (& continues to be) a worthwhile & fun project!

I put this scope on it with these rings.

Eye relief is PERFECT and I'm getting dime sized groups at 50 yards.

Pictures to follow.

Nice Setups!

Anxiously awaiting pics!

I'm enjoying mine.

Even with the receiver sights the zero holds after multiple breakdowns.

What size are the flip up caps on your P223? I assume they are Butler Creek.
Do you like them?

Thanks!

Since threading the barrel was mentioned in this thread months ago I thought I would throw it out there that Ruger has a new Takedown model with a shorter 16.5" threaded barrel.

As always I'm too dumb to post links, but pics of the newer threaded barrel version is on the Ruger website. It is blued and not stainless like the earlier version.

Prices on these currently are 550-600.

I don't even want to know what the price for the "tactical" threaded barrel will be.

After giving up on finding one, a couple of weeks ago I put $200 down on the waiting list at my LGS. No idea on when it may come in.

I bought one of these when the hit the shelves last summer and sent it to Brooks at Thompson machine for this conversion. It returned to my cl 3 a couple of months ago. It is fantastic!


I also bought the Larue lt178 rail for the top, because an eotech exp and pvs 14 fits on it. And that is handy.

Ruger really impressed me with this rifle, they really hit the target here.
