What would you choose to do? Have your factory ruger reciever and bolt reworked by cpc, build a kidd upper, or buy a tactical solutions x ring receiver?

Full disclosure...here in KY you can buy/trade/sell private party without the need for a transfer. I've normally only bought non serialized parts 2nd hand but this rifle was priced right. For most people in ky they'd shoot and go on but it bugs me that I have a rifle not in my name. So I need a receiver. Just trying to get the opinions of people who have built several rifles.

I have tried/used most everything on the market.. KIDD is what I recommend.

I build Kidd rifles, except for the receiver. I asked them to build a 7075-T6 receiver and they refused. That would have been twice as strong as the 6061-T6 that they use. So I use steel or stainless steel receivers.
I think the Tactical Innovations receivers are made out of 7075-T6, but I’m not positive. If they are, they would be a much stronger receiver at the same weight, as the Kidd. If so, that is what I would use. I don’t know what aluminum Tactical Solutions uses, but I would check.

The only 7075 offering I know of from searching is from azimuth. I cant find anything on here about them and I emailed a dealer for them with no response. Only other option ive found outside of 7075 and 6061 is the $400 steel receivers.

the strength of 7075-T6 aluminum or steel are not necessary for a 10/22 receiver..Ruger has been using something akin to pot metal for years without issues from the material strength itself...in fact I'm surprised that they haven't made the switch to a polymer receiver yet, since they have the molding experience with the poly trigger housings

There's a guy in Germany (IIRC) on FB who has 3D printed a 10-22 clone receiver and has been using it for some time. IIRC, he's on Gen 2 or 3 receivers currently. That said, I would have to agree that 7075 aluminum alloy is not necessary for a 10-22. I do, however, hope that Ruger does NOT introduce a polymer receiver for the 10-22. Some things should be made out of metal (of some type), IMHO.

Tactical Solutions X-Ring VR receiver is a very good choice. The current receiver has left or right hand interchangeable bolt charging handle and a dual guide rod system. Comes with bolt, v block, buffer, and trigger pins.

Cpc has a bolt and receiver deal but not receiver alone. Only thing is that wouldn't completely solve my problem. Id still have a receiver in the name of the guy i bought it from.

I'd just go with a Kidd build. The quality is excellent and I've never had any concern about the strength of the steel on any of my Kidd (or any other brand) receivers. I know when your doing a build your not really thinking about resale but a full Kidd barreled action is going to get you a higher resale price than if you use parts from 2 or more different manufacturer's, even if some of them are more expensive parts. This is assuming your looking to do an upper end build, which I assume you are by the parts that you asked about.

In my opinion I'm down to x ring complete receiver, tactical innovations full receiver, or kidd. Im not going to mix and match stuff. All in all...the 3 complete aren't much different in price unless i go with TI's steel receiver. Theres just not much info out there except on kidd stuff.
