This past weekend I put some rounds through my Ruger 10/22 for the first time in something like 4 years. Plinkin’ cans at 50 yards without issue, still got it :)
I really like my 10/22 but I’m looking to “tac-it-up” from it’s standard stock build up by adding a collapsible butt stock, mag quick-release, rail forearm, mounted light, muzzle brake, single point sling, and maybe even a red-dot sight.
The Ruger 10/22 is a great gun due to reliability and shear volume of replacement parts, plus it makes for a nice platform to practice shooting with since all the fundamentals are the same and the ammo is so much cheaper. Add a holstered handgun and put up a little run and you’ve got great training and fun all day!
There are a couple kits out there that’ll get the base setup that then I can attach all the goodies too.
One is the ProMag Archangel, which looks to be the leading contender for me since I like the side attachment possibilities on the forearm without kit modification.
Another is the TAPCO Standard Stock kit, this one is pretty nice, and if you watch the Nutnfancy review below you’ll see he digs it. But it doesn’t have a floating barrel and is lacking those side rail mounts I’m looking for. It’s true that Nutnfancy mods his to get the light attached, but I’d rather not have to do that.
Anyway, if I end up getting one of these and do a build up I’ll make sure to post a review here.
