A Tale of Two Altamont Ultimate 10/22's

Actually there is not much to tell of this tale
The story is simple and short.
I love the Talo 10/22 builds for 10/22 from a few years past. Beautiful French Walnut. Excellent checkering. Schnable tip. Perfect balance.
Then while surfing ebay I chanced upon a surplus Altamont 10/22 stock and (throwing common sense to the wind), decided then to do a build.
A short time after that I happened on another Altamont 10/22 stock, this one made for Cabela's 50th Anniversary with a red butt pad. Again, getting older by the minute, need and reasoning were ignored and it too ended up in the mail 1 week later.

So this is how they ended up:

The rifle with the black butt pad appears to have been a Talo VII surplus. An Altamont produced piece.
I placed an 18" Feddersen tapered factory standard contour barrel.
Kidd single stage 2 lb trigger. Volquartsen bedding pillar. And Kidd receiver, bolt, charging handle.
On Leupold PRW2 1" low profile rings was added the most superb Nikon Target Prostaff 3-9 x40 EFR scope (this scope deserves its own write up !).

The rifle with the red butt pad, again Altamont, was made for Cabela's 50th Anniversary. A special model. And is so engraved on the end cap.
This one is made special with the edition of a Shilen 20" Match stainless barrel.
Keeping with the stainless silver color theme, like colored parts from Kidd, receiver, bolt, action screw, charging handle were added. Again a Kidd single stage 2 lb trigger was added to keep the excellence going.
Volquartsen bedding pillars were placed.
To top this off, a silver colored vintage Leupold 6-18 scope was mounted with Warne 1" low profile rings.

I think they both turned out great.

Very nice stocks.

I have an Altamont Viceroy stock and I was trying to buy another but they quit making them.

10/22's make into pretty nice sporters as your rifles show.

top shelf builds for sure

KIDD could take a lesson here, and offer their Supergrade rifles with stocks like these, instead of the stuff they use now
