S &P has the newer TD case $50, a little pricey imho. I have the original TD case, and the magpul stock with a red dot fits just fine.

I was starting to regret buying a TD as my first 10/22. I changed out the barrel and stock with TacSol + Hogue. I didn’t like how low the iron sights were on the TacSol, so I tried different optics. Red dot never gave me the accuracy I wanted, and a scope seemed just wrong to me on this platform. So I ended up stripping down to the receiver. Sold off the stock, barrel and optics. Bought the Magpul Backpacker stock and Ruger threaded barrel on sale. Then got Tech Sights. WOW!!! I love this rifle now. Tackdriver at 50 yards with no adjustments. This is what a TD is supposed to be. I can’t recommend Tech Sights enough!

Yes, you need to remove the dovetail front sight. You then mount the rear sight on the receiver

X-22 Backpacker stock for Takedowns

New X-22 BP user here. I bought the Davidson's exclusive with the extra mags. Only mod so far is the BX trigger and a DIY bolt release. Trying to keep the rifle streamlined in keeping with the BOB/Get Home nature of my purpose. So no optics, and avoiding extended mags.

50rd box of ammo, spare mag, lighter, dryer lint, sight screwdriver and cleaning patches in the main compartment

Boresnake, pen and 1/8" hex bit in the pistol grip.

10 rds, two razor blades and Super Glue under the butt pad (that's what the 1/8" bit is for).

All in a Maxpedition Pygmy Falcon II bag with a change of clothes, FAK, another box of ammo, food, water and a MT. It lives in my car trunk.

Yeah an unlikely fantastical scenario but it's a fun brain and collecting exercise.

I really like your setup. Do you still own it? Are you still happy with it? If you were to spend the money again, would you do the exact same thing?

Thanks

Has anyone disassembled the fore grip? I removed the small inside screw but could not get the two halves to separate. The Magpul tech guy said “squeeze the two buttons hard and it should pop apart.”

No luck. I want to see if there is enough inside clearance for me to install a sling stud, for a bipod. It would work right under the buttons/ latch because there is a cavity across from it in the stock.... the location is under the red circle in the attached pic.

Thanks.

I guess I'll be the Devils Advocate here...what exactly am I getting with that $100 Magpul Backpacker besides storage space? Nothing, really...I can already carry extra ammo and tools in the factory Ruger backpack bag that came with the 10/22 and not have to support/carry the added weight every time I pick up the rifle to shoot. Seems like everyone is going to store their setup inside a bag anyhow, what's the difference? With the factory stock, I don't have to worry about the top door on the MagPul buttstock storage compartment getting lost or broken. The Magpul Backpacker won't accommodate the front-mounted Ruger Laser, either.

So.....just tacticool???

Black round plug to the right of that little nub pops off and there's a screw under there. I had to remove that plug to fit my Volquartsen barrel.

Bravo! Thank you! Too bad the Magpul tech drone couldn't tell me that. I sent him that picture and he didn't comment on the hidden screw.... Do you know it there is clearance underneath for a swivel stud nut, enough to allow the buttons and latch to function? I would probably bed the nut in JB Weld for strength.

I've been wanting to do the same. There's not much room under there!

Here's a post showing the install of threaded inserts for a rail:

After disassembling and taking a look at mine I have two other ideas.
1) instead of the threaded inserts, the ribs in the fore stock could be removed and a plate inserted in there with two threaded holes. Then attach that rail on the outside. This would not require any clearance reliefs on the buttons. Or just use the T-nuts included with the 3-slot rail..... again, ribs would need to be cut to fit the nuts.

2) a stud directly over the button assembly hold-down screw may be a good location. The buttons may need some clearance notches, but that doesn't appear it would affect operation.

I just mounted a stud on my forearm, I used the existing small screw location behind the latch. Here is how it came out.... the bipod is a Harris shorty.

I took lots of pics so I am going to start a new thread just for this mod.

Hi John,

Thanks for the idea I will probably do this today on my backpacker.

Did you have to take any material away from the stock to get it to snap back together? Do you have a picture of that?
