baseline performance established by attaching barreled action to the bench.

after free floating, some trigger work, installing new Bushnell scope on lapped rings, 50 yards with Eley and Thunderbolts on the bipod:

after recommended break in Green Mountain bull barrel, pinned firing pin, profiled and polished bolt carrier, nylon bolt for carrier buffer, set screw trigger stop and WESCOG cheek weld, sighting in was easy. 50 yards, Norma TAC22 ammo:

had to build an elevated 100 yard bench due to property elevation and had a chance to take it out yesterday.

100 yards on bipod and bag, same Norma ammo, four beers...

further ammo testing to come. i was trying to keep it as much of a sleeper as i could but i think i might need a target stock with pistol grip or at least a thumb hole. i feel like my grip on the stock and trigger finger are conflicting.

at this point it's performance is par with a pair of CZ 452's i compete against.

Sleeper? Take a stock factory carbine, send it adn a couple hundred bucks to CPC.

You get reworked trigger, worked over bolt, and he sets the barrel back a hair, recuts chamber to tighter tolerances, and will trim and recrown the barrel as well.

Good shooting... you should check the builds on rimfirecentral, but yours doesn't qualify for the 'super stock' category... some incredible builds there...

Interestin' I take it the stock barrel is not up to snuff? I am determined to keep mine intact with the barrel it came with. I am just trying to improve a "Plinker" as much as is possible without investing a small fortune. I already have an LVT with a 20" medium heavy barrel for trying to compete with the 452's. :D

Have you tried crowning the original barrel? The rimfire boys claim it works wonders, sometimes anyway.
I am also going to remove the Carbine barrel band, but put a fore end tip on it and a pad to apply some up pressure on the barrel.

I have some trouble with the Ruger stock also. It helps a bit by cutting flutes in the comb and hollowing out the area behind the grip like most Sporter Rifles have..

I think "Minute of Penny" groups at 50 yards is pretty dang good for a stock 10/22. :shades:

I have one of those barrels along with a reworked trigger and bolt and even though I barely shoot it anymore, when I do, it is incredibly accurate. By the way, they call the reworked barrels " Stealth barrels" due to the fact that that they look like factory barrel.

i compared this to a mildly modified 77/22 and it was no contest. the bull barrel is the heat. i highly recommend a trigger stop as well. i should have went with a 4-12X 50 scope as i really feel it would have helped. i tend to lose the bulls eye with the 3-9x40. my sole mission here is to take dollar bills from two CZ owners though the image of them shaking their heads would be priceless... :) since our friendly competition involves a .22 pistol at 25 yards it's time to address the trigger in the MKlll. trying to talk the other two into letting me plant a clay target launcher and making it a three gun deal. then, i know i'd be taking some booty.... i think they're skeered....:biggrin:

Yup, KIDD is the name to beat. Unfortunately, if you move to a bolt gun, it is fairly easy to at least make very uncomfortable if not beat for far less $...


For your scope, take a look at the Simmons WTC 6.5-20x50 w/ AO - fantastic scope for teh money, midway usually has it on sale for under $130. It is what I've got on my CZ right now, best bargain scope you could ask for. Saving my couch change for a Meuller 8-32x44 or Weaver T-36... :)

I am vey happy with my 10/22 budget build. Shaw .920 barrel, Timney trigger group and a Boyd's thumbhole stock. Will ring the 3" spinner all day long at 100yds with the TAC-65 suppressor. Pfft ding!!
