Looks like a good pointer but not much of an aim-er

Yep, still debating scope or sights. Need a sling too.

Built it as an Appleseed shooter, so leaning towards sights.

USMCCHET,
A find looking build for your son. I started my son with a cricket 22 at age 6. Eleven years ago now, but still ranks high in my collection of my greatest memories.
I could use a little guidance from you if you don't mind. For some reason, I can't find a green sling like the one you have there. Could you share with me the brand and how I could go about getting one? Any help would be appreciated. I can find black and camo everywhere, just not green. I must be doing something wrong. Thanks in advance.

Hey eye relief... Idk if you have been on Tech Sights' website, but they now sell a green web sling specifically for the appleseed shooters... It is $13, midway has one also I believe!

Don't I feel like an idiot. I buy from Midway all the time, just didn't dig deep enough I guess. Just ordered one. The one at Tech Sights was cotton, what I was hoping for was nylon. Midway got me fixed up.
Thanks Chadwick

Here is my first ultimate.

I started with this


As soon as I brought it home I had these parts waiting for it


And after a couple of hours I had this



Parts list;

2003ish 10/22
Hogue Over Mold stock
GM 20" Stainless fluted barrel
Volquartsen hammer and auto bolt release
Tactical Solutions extended mag release
Tuffer Buffer
Weaver rail and Millet rings
Mueller 4.5-14 APV scope
Buttler Creek lens caps
Winchester Bi-pod

Haven't got to shoot it yet as it was raining this weekend, I think I will end up getting a longer bolt handle since the stock one is a bit annoying with the scope on it.

I hear people say the hogue stocks have alot of "flex" to them..is this true? and how much is "alot"? I just ordered one and Im wondering if I made a good choice..most all of my shooting is done off hand,mainly for small game hunting. I purchased the stock because I wanted a light stock..which I assume these are very light? I should of researched more before my order but it was just one of those impulse buys when I ordered my barrel.

Relichound,

I really like my Hogue. It does have flex to it. I can twist the front of the stock and see the gap between barrel and stock change significantly. For that reason, I chose not to do any type of bedding or pressure point because it would rely on a flexible base. Like you, my goal was a light weight hunter. My gun is 5.5 pounds all in, gun and a rather large (18 ounce) scope. I have installed a TacSol barrel on mine, completely free floating in the stock. Groups are getting better, I have three subsonic rounds now that will produce half inch groups at 5o.

Relic,

I wish there were a better term to use rather than "flex" because I think sometimes "flex" indicates that it's "floppy" or you can bend it backwards or something. It's not that "flexable" it can move a little bit, but mine seems to be very rigid or at least enough to not cause for much alarm. Maybe the word "budge" would work, the stock can budge some....

Some of the reviews I read about the Hogue stock from Midway indicated that people are using the sling as some sort of a fire position support/handle that when pulled down some causes the stock to "flex" away from the barrel. I have a bipod on mine all the time and the sling is only for transportation, so I have not witnessed this issue. I just purchased a Hogue stock and 16" clerk heavy bull barrel and I am 100% happy with both the barrel and stock. I have done no bedding or further customization to the stock, I dropped it in and I'm getting very very consistent groups.

I got my stock today and must say Im very pleased with the fit and finish. it does have a bit of "budge" to it but nothing that will be a huge problem..maybe if it was for a bench gun I could see some problems but for and off hand hunter I think Ill be happy with it.
here is my rifle.

KID trigger{with speed mag release}
KID bolt and cocking assy.
KID scope base with weaver rings
KID bolt buffer
Nikon pro staff shotgun scope {chose it for the 75yrd parallex}
Hogue stock in ghillie green
Tac-Sol barrel
the pic isnt that good..Ill get better picks later today when I have time.

I just posted up in the anything 10/22 section because I wasn't sure if mine qualified as an ultimate but I figured I would post a pic here as my build is using a Hogue stock. Still needs a few things to be totally finished, like addressing the horrid trigger pull.

As of now:
10/22 all-weather doner
TacSol matte green barrel
Hogue .920 ghillie tan stock
VQ extractor
VQ auto bolt release
VQ hex takedown bolt
Recoil buffer (brand unknown)
R/T one piece charging handle
R/T locking v-block and screws
Nikon Prostaff 2-7x32

Icculus09,
Looks like you have someone there who's not that impressed with your handiwork.

Personally I like it!
