My Ugly 10/22

Post by Foo Bird » October 29th, 2010, 7:38 pm

Here's the rundown
18 in ER Shaw barrel
Choate folding stock
$40 generic scope from Dick's
It can punish golf balls all day long at 100 yards.

I've looked at this post 3-4 times now and still having a hard time trying to find the ugly!
Looks like a fun piece.

It has no bright colors. No artfully crafted stock. No stylish target barrel or shiny scope and mounts. Maybe I've seen too many of those high dollar 10/22s that look too nice to shoot.
Thanks.

I didn't want to buy a rifle then spend even more money changing things out so I built it myself from parts. It came out to less than if I had bought one whole and modified it. That kind of thing works good for 10/22s.

After market goodies. :twisted:
Thanks. It's pretty bare bones, especially compared what I usually see. It's meant to be purely functional.
For anyone wondering, the stock was meant for the factory barrel contour. A little filing and the bull barrel will fit. :mrgreen:

For you 10/22 owners out there, feel free to post some pics and improve the thread! Especially you Kansas.

I look forward to it Kansas. The first firearm I ever owned was a Marlin model 60. My dad bought it for me when I was 13 and I still have it.

Nothing ugly with your 10-22. It's a thing of beauty! My dad gave me my 10-22 almost 40 years ago and I
still have it. Thanks for sharing.

Here's mine

It's had many thousands of rounds through it, so it's a little rough around the edges! :D

I'm a fan of function over form, but I'd say yours hits both points. It's simple yet easy on the eyes. :!:

Thank you for your kind words. The stock is actually getting a little beat up, but then again I couldn't even begin to imagine how many thousands of rounds I've put through this rifle. Given ammo prices these days, my .22's see a lot of use!
