If you look that model up it will say its a Birch Sporter stock not Walnut.




Pretty good shooter dead stock too...


That's a very nice rifle... I like that with the walnut stock

Thanks folks, dumb luck find, in the LGS a few years back and noticed the long barrel and I'm thinking I liked the looks of that, then when handed the rifle confirm the walnut stock and its got the Birch stock price tag on it $239. Pulled the old wallet and sealed the deal and then asked about the stock, they were like huh? A DSP was selling for $299 at the time.

Blind hogs and acorns....

Also a very rare WalMart special laminate salt & pepper Deluxe Sporter stock came with an 18 1/2" black barrel besides the usual silver. Sure can't trust Ruger's own records of their production models, then add all the Distributor Exclusives.

My 10/22 has a 20 inch green Mountain Sporter barrel. I like the balance of it.

Mine was a Wal-Mart special that I bought back in 2002 (I think). I was shopping around and asked a LGS if they had the same model and the guy was VERY confused. He looked through his catalogue and said that the rifle I was describing doesn't exist. So, since he couldn't compete, I bought the rifle from Wal-Mart for around $210.

A few years ago, I got into NFA and considered replacing the barrel with a Feddersen or simply chopping and threading the barrel. I elected to chop and thread to 16.5". With the suppressor, it handles and shoots nicely. I like the stock but have floated the barrel with only a pressure pad right in front of the action screw.

I've had the trigger worked on to drop it from (no joke) 8+ lbs to around 3.5 lbs and replaced the extractor, firing pin, action pin and hammer spring.

It has a shiny stainless barrel, silver colored action and silver colored trigger with trigger guard. It's a keeper.

I bought a 22" walmart special 10/22 rifle about 6 years ago. SO much better feel and looks than a standard 10/22. The factory trigger sucked; replaced it with a much lighter one. Shoots good; not the most accurate 22LR I have. Not my favorite; but for a 10/22 I think it is one of the nicer ones that can be store bought (or could be)

Had a Boyds Rimfire Hunter on a Marlin 917 before I sold it. Its a little hefty, but its a nice solid stock. If that gun shot half as good as it looked, I'd still have it.
