Why a folding stock? you will make the receiver group about 10" - 12" shorter but make it twice as thick will you not?

A collapsible or Adjustable stock would make it shorter and not any thicker while in "storage". Something like the AR, I know there are version for the standard 10/22 I would like to see one for the TD version.

Whats the point? As long as the stock is not longer than the barrel. The package will be as long as the barrel even if the receiver half is 4 inches long.

shorter stock for those that the standard one is too long for. My wife would prefer a shorter stock for one.

But you are correct in that the length of the barrel limits some of the advantage of a shorter stock. If you store the setup in something other than the case provided a shorter stock can be a space and weight saving issue.

I'd like to see barrels in different lengths and styles.

I'd LOVE to see an intregally suppressed barrel for it but don't know if it's a possibility.

I will be purchasing a suppressor for it.

I'm not a fan of folding stocks.

The trigger on it SUCKS and will be replaced shortly.

Any real gunsmith can thread a barrel, I've had it done to one of my 1022's.

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...

http://pullig.dyndns.org/practicalpr...st=0&sk=t&sd=a

..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.

Here's a fifty shot group, Federal Bulk @ 25 with takedowns.

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.
