Thanks for all who posted! You guys have given me some great ideas on what I could do with the tapco. Should I go with an all black tapco like black scope and barrel or a bling bling type like with the black stock but with stainless steel everything like scope barrel etc. etc. All suggestions are appreciated!





Keep on gunning

I like the black/stainless two-tone look myself, but then, you already knew that .

All depends on what you're using it for (plinking/hunting, target?) and what you're willing to spend. Post this question in the Scopes, rings and mounts section and you'll get lots of good advice .

I chose the Weaver RV7( http://www.weaver-mounts.com/weavero...pg11/pg11.html) because I wanted something simple, fairly small and lightweight, with variable power in a lower magnification range for plinking and rabbit/varmint hunting. I also wanted good quality at a reasonable price ($100-$150). After doing my homework (I'm no riflescope expert!) and asking a few RV7 owners here, I couldn't find anything but positive reviews and happy owners. You can add me to that list now .

If you're still looking for a stainless scope, you should go on gunkings.com. They do have a nice selection of stainless scopes most of which are only $120.00. Good luck finding one. I'm still wiating to get my 10/22 donor from my uncle.

There is a crummy picture of mine on here somewhere but it looks quite similar to Garyl43's.

I'm giving a fair amount of thought to shortening and re-crowning the barrel. Just too much barrel poking out the front of my T6.

Wow!

Ya'll got some some tuff-looking Tapcos here.

...might as well show my two:

This one has a GM 17" SS "heavy-taper" bbl., B&L Elite 3000 3-9x40 w/ BC flips and parallax adjusted to 35 yds., VQ "seconds" hammer and other internal work, <2 lb. trigger.... sweet little .22.



This one has a GM 16.5" fluted .17 HM2 bbl., Leu 4x RF scope, and the usual (and some necessary for the 17) internal mods... barks over here, bites 'way over yonder.



Keep the tapco pix coming guys.... the "military" look is startin' to grow on me!

I've had a lot of people recently PM me asking if I had to, to quote one, "bore out" my Tapco stock for a bull barrel, so I highlighted in red the description above of the barrel. It is not a .920 bull barrel... it is a special-run GM heavy-taper barrel, and yes... I had to open the barrel channel some to accommodate it.

sorry for the newbie question but may I ask...

whats with the "droopy" stock? is it naturally loose or is there some sort of setting for that angle?

thanks!

It comes with 2 connectors, 1 for open sights (angled) and 1 for scope use (straight).
