Brimstone tier 2 sounds appealing, as does the hogue stock combo.

Here's my questions:

1. what's the benefit of that .920" barrel over the factory one?

2. Do the parts listed for the 10/22 fit the Takedown models as well? Which do not?

The advantage is that it is a target barrel and will give you better accuracy than the OEM barrel. It is also a very lightweight setup with a threaded barrel. And if you plan on using iron sights the ones on the TacSol are much better consisting of an adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight. All parts are interchangeable with other 10/22 part's with the exception of the barrel and stock for what should be obvious reasons. Also if you wanted to mount a scope some of the aftermarket extended scope rails aren't compatible with the TD, but they make plenty that are or you could just use the Weaver base that it comes with.

So did I? I don't know if they even offer one of the TD combo's without the threaded barrel. You could have the thread protector or a muzzle brake permanently attached.

They definitely are allowed to sell threaded barrel 10/22 models in california.
I recently bought a takedown lite with a threaded barrel.
unfortunately, we still can't use suppressors at all at this point.

I bought mine, tactical model with threaded barrel at the local shop. It's legal, just no suppressors allowed.

Update. Holding on to the Thunderbolts for now but ordered some CCI HV 40 grains and a few other CCI stuff to break her in. Her name is Beatriz, by the way.

More BX-1 mags received and went with 25-rd Hightower Armory HTA RM25's.

For sights, taking a chance on NoDak Spud open sights.

On order: Kidd charging handle kit.

Will do: Brimstone Tier 2

Out of luck: 1-point sling for TD

I installed 2 Magpul Type 1 QD and I'm using a Magpul MS4 sling that can be used as a 1 point or 2 point sling.

Any drilling required? do you have a photo you can share? Do I have to swap out the barrel band or modify it somehow? Thank you BC42

What is the distance available to you where you shoot? If it is under 100 yards, shoot the iron sights until you are very accurate and then put a scope on it.

Brimstone does a very nice job on triggers. Kidd offers a very nice drop in kit for a great single stage trigger. Either will do you very nicely.

The stock that comes on the rifle isn't bad, but the Magpul backpacker is much nicer.

Get yourself on this list: https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...0+22+drill+jig

Once you receive the jig, drill the hole and you will be able to easily clean your barrel from the breech as you should. Bore snakes are nice for a quicky but I'm too old to believe they can do as good a job as a good rod with proper sized brushes and patches.

Try lots of different ammunition till you find the brand/type that functions best and provides you with the accuracy you expect. Once you find that ammunition, begin stocking it deep at the best price you can find it. Two or three ten round magazines should last you longer than the barrel as long as you don't lose the magazines. Its always nice to have a few extras.

Find someone who knows how to shoot and go to the range. Have fun and Be safe.

I have old eyes so a scope is a huge help. I learned how to shoot at a boy scout camp when I was 11 or so with iron sights and got my marksman and pro marksman badges before the week long camp was over.

The Backpacker stock is so much better than the stock ... er... stock.

That PIF thread is pretty awesome but TD's don't need to drill a hole to access the barrel. It comes apart .
