New Tony Mele Stocks



Log in to see fewer ads
I contacted Tony Mele a few weeks ago about getting one of his stocks for a new 10/22 build I'm doing. I wanted the Burgundy/Charcoal or Red/Black combo if possible. He had some Burgundy/Charcoal coming, so I pre-paid my order. I had also sold my 10/22 Takedown and wanted to do another, lesset build for shorter barrel for my suppressor. Well, tony had an all Charcoal barrel to sell as a “blem”. It had an acrylic inlay and was vented. Price was very good, so I sent funds for that one too.
So yesterday they were delivered! To say I'm impressed would be a gross understatement! Both are absolutely stunning! I cannot say enough about Tony and his work.
The Burgundy/Charcoal is getting a T.I Stainless receiver, Power Customs bolt and a Kidd 2-Stage trigger, which I have in hand. I am waiting on a special order Shilen 20” barrel so I can get it ready for the range.
The “blem” (ha ha) stock will get a kidd Single Stage trigger and am patiently waiting for the Azimuth Technologies complete barreled receiver/bolt package to be released. I want to take the leap of faith and give the new kids on the block a shot!

Welcome to the fan club, sir!

They both look marvelous!

I love it that he merged the CZ 455 and 10/22 designs.

Mr. Mele never runs out of tricks, lol!

Fantastic looking furniture!

Yes, got the same burgundy/grey combo in the Avenger version.

Ultimately stunning in person!

I am glad I introduced you RFC guys to Tony Mele. Makes me feel good that you guys get to see what I seen years ago when I discovered how good Tony was.

Nice stocks!

I'm moving up the 10/22 ladder a bit at a time.

Lol, BJ sir!

When I started with my 10/22s, I went the custom way right away.

Told myself the Charger with no Ruger parts build was my last one but after seeing your glamorous TM stocks something inside me went out of sync

I put a Charger together keeping just the receiver stock. A friend insisted I sell it to him. I've also put together and sold two other 10/22s before heading into filling the Tony Mele stocks. Each one better than the last. The Burgundy/Charcoal build promises to be the best one yet. I have a Vortex Golden Eagle from my last 10/22 going on it. Old eyes need an edge...
