Do any of you all have a KIDD with the rear tang to compare to the Custom Shop? I am curious if they are the same foot print. Slightly considering changing stocks on my CSC but want to keep the rrar hold down.

I don't have a CSC but I do have regular Ruger and Kidd receivers. If the CSC has the same dimensions as every other 10/22 receiver then it will have a slightly different footprint than a Kidd receiver. I probably would have never known this if I didn't start using Tony Melee stocks. His tolerances are so tight on his stocks that you have to let him know which receiver you are using when you order one. I tried putting a Ruger receiver in my Nighthawk stock that was built for a Kidd and it wouldn't go in. The Kidd fits like a glove. Same goes for the other way around. I had a Nighthawk Shadow made for a Ruger receiver and a Kidd won't fit it.

That's good to know. It sounds like that would mainly be a concern on a custom stock like that then. I am contemplating changing stocks on my CSC but want to keep the rear tang. There are a few stocks available that are already setup to accept a KIDD with the rear tang so I'm trying to figure out if one of those will work.

Most stocks will accept all 10/22 receivers. Tony's stocks just have extremely tight tolerances.

My Feddersen receiver won't fit the TM Avenger and NightHawk stocks.

My TI receivers do though.

The actions with barrels do not even fall off sans action screw when I I turn them belly up--even my heavyweight with the stainless TI receiver and 18" KIDD bull barrel combo.

So true about the TM stocks having tight tolerances.

I have been reiterating that no one out there beats the TM stocks when it comes to fit and finish.

Got the stainless version about a month ago.
Has terrible extraction problems.
Ordered a replacement Volquartsen extractor/firing pin combo last night.
If that doesn't cure it, I suppose, I'll wrap it around a post at the range.

How many rounds through it so far? Mine took around a 1k to really smooth out and run fine for more than 10-15 rounds at a time. Now I can go about 300 rounds before the chamber needs to be cleaned.

Only around 200 rounds so far but didn't like pushing the empty case from the chamber so ordered the Volquartsen replacements.
Guess I need to clean the chamber more often for now.
Thanks for your reply.

Shot my rifle today with the newly installed extractor and firing pin by Volquartsen.
Dang misfire on the very 1st shot but after that 200 rounds fired without a single failure to extract or any more misfires.
The Volquartsen extractor is the real deal!

Thanks for the update. My stainless FINALLY arrived. Fit and finish looks good, but the proof will be when I finally get it to the range.

Look forward to hearing how it performs for you.
Hope yours has no issues like mine!

I was just wondering if anyone's tried any different stocks with this model? Obviously it'll need a stock with the tang hole and I am correct that it needs to be sized for a .920 barrel, right? I'd /really/ like a nice classic walnut stock on this.
