Here is my VMBZ .22WMR. I wouldn't call it an ultimate...yet, but it does shoot pretty darn well. I have shot under 1" groups at 100yds off of a crappy rest. I am thinking of selling but after seeing all of the great jobs you all have done on yours, I am reconsidering.

I wouldn't sell it. It is way nicer than mine! I would love to have one like yours. Oh... hey how much do you want for it?

Another sleeper RS. Bought it new about 1984, it wears a Burris Compact 2-7 and has taken a lot of squirrels, jacks, cottontails, crows, etc.

Now if I could find a light weight wood stock with a shorter forend for the 16.5" fluted barrel I bought for it...

Deputy450,

If I do end up selling it I would want to get about $450 out of it.

Ole' Man River,

What stock did you have on this gun?



I love the grip angle on it. I would love to know more about it and how you finished it.

Nothing fancy. Added a SHILEN heavy barrel, Bushnell 1.5-4.5x with Control rings. Factory trigger (a little heavy but crisp and no creep). Consistant sub 1/4 inch groups at 50 yards even with the low power scope. This is an old early production model. You can't see in this pic but the fore arm has a cool swirl wavy grain to it.

77/22 Stock

Parshooter,
The stock on the 77/22 is from Brown Precision (http://www.brownprecision.com/) it is kind of hard to tell from the picture but it is dark green the rings are just standard Ruger rings, the scope is a Leupold VX-II 4-12, the barrell is a Shilen, the bolt and headspace were worked by Randy at CPC, I did the trigger myself. Almost not any fun to shoot it is so accurate! Hope that helps, anything else let me know.
Huck

Thanks Huck, it does. That's a fine looking rifle, but dang! BP sure is proud of 'em. Has more of an 'industrial' look, ala a remy 700P. Wish there were more options for 77/22 stocks.

Couldn't find what I wanted and ended up painting the OEM one with a textured finish. Just ordered that same scope you have with a Long Range Duplex reticle. Weigand mount. Leupy quick release rings. VQ sear. Harris BR bipod.

But it'll be at least a month before everything gets put together.

Barreled action is off at LRM having an integral suppressor attached. One of Lee's guns:






For what this will be, the painted stock should be fine. The barrel will only be about a foot long. But super quiet.



I just discovered these Weigand mounts for the 77/22. If you want something a bit different they look pretty cool to me. Come in black too:

Stock

Yeah, BP is very proud of their stocks. I bought mine in 1996 or 97, back then there were even fewer choices for stocks for a 77/22. I wish there was more to chose from now. Nice looking stock you have there, I have thought about doing the same with my next 77/?? project, what kind of paint did you use?
