Still shoots as sweet...

I have gotten my latest .22 build finished up, other than the suppressed barrel...that will likely be 4-6 more months before the paperwork clears. I wasn't willing to wait that long so I am using an ER Shaw barrel till then. While it looks like a 10/22 it contains just a single Ruger part, the rest are all aftermarket. I decided that if I was going to pay $800.00 for a barrel (barrel plus tax stamp) I should build a top shelf host for it. This is my 4th 10/22 but the first time I have taken the build this far.

The Parts list...

Stock - Hogue
Receiver - Nodak Spud
Bolt - Tactical Innovations CNC Machined
Charging handle - Tactical Innovations
Barrel - ER Shaw
Complete trigger group - Timney (includes mag release, safety and all internal parts plus CNC housing)
Buffer pin - Pro Mag
Sights - NoDak Spud
Receiver pins - oversized fitted by me
Barrel V-Block - Adjustable Tactical Innovations
Magazine - Butler Creek
Action/Stock screw - Ruger

So far range tests are giving me 1/2 inch groups at 30 yards using iron sights, I am sure that would improve greatly with optics but for now I want to stick with the irons to practice for an Appleseed. I am using Federal Auto-Match ammo but will test others as well.

It was interesting building one without starting with a Ruger 10/22. Only reason I used the Ruger stock screw was because the Hogue stock didn't come with one and I had one from another build left over. I have to say I was surprised at how well everything went together without really any fitting. The NoDak Spud sights are very nice...I like the military style peep and they will co-witness with a red dot should I decided to add one thanks to the one piece base. NoDak is also the only folks who do this style front sight for a bull barrel. The barrel I have coming is a Yankee Hill Machine integrally suppressed unit so it will also be .920 in diameter.
