July 2013 Ultimate 10-22 Contest Winner:


"The Ultimate Classic Carbine" by InfamousJ:

Bio/Build Specs, by InfamousJ:

The purpose was to refresh/restore the second gun I ever owned (the first I ever worked to get) as a kid, and pay tribute to the role it played in developing my interests in the outdoors, shooting, hunting, and responsibility of firearm ownership...After finding the stock burried in the kid's closet amongst toys, clothes, and baby stuff, I had to rescue it and do whatever in my power to bring it back to life to the best of my abilities...I wanted as many original parts as possible, while at the same time upgrading every functioning part available without making it looking overly modified or cluttered with too many aftermarket parts...To personalize it, I wanted to build it in a way that was also unique and "one-of-a-kind" if possible which can be difficult since the rifle is so popular and so many were made...







Stock, receiver, Bolt by QUE, trigger guard, butt plate, barrel band are all original and hand polished

Stock-high gloss lacquer finish...
Trigger-Brimstone Tier(3)? (whatever his best job is) with Power Custom oversized safety...
Ruger factory stainless barrel, shortened to 16 inches, threaded, and rechambered by QUE with DIP thread protector...
Superior Concepts charging handle
Harris bipod
RT pillar bed kit/custom brass receiver pins, VQ takedown screw, KIDD Vblock, TI mag release, TI-25 mag, Dyed BX-1 Ruger mags,
Nodak NDS 40 front sight...NDS 26 rail/peep combo...

Scope - Bushnell Elite 4200 8x-32x Fine Duplex Reticle
Overall Length - 45-1/2"
Weight - 9 pounds 5 ounces (with no Magazine)

This gun was built by fellow RFC member Passinby.
His description:
The stock: I worked with Claude Gatewood to complete a Thumbhole Varmint design he had been working on. This is the second one he made. After having the prototype turned from one of my blanks and I asked him to find the absolute best Claro Walnut blank with as much flame and marbling figure as he could find. It is gloss finished. The grip cap, forearm tip and buttpad spacer are Ebony.

The barrel is a 27" Green Mountain 22lr octagon, purchased "in the white"
and shipped, along with the receiver, to Randy at CPC. Randy cut, chambered,
crowned and threaded the barrel to the receiver. The barrel has been polished to 600 grit and deep blued. Combined with a CPC bolt, this hardware set is is the 25 yard 1/4" clubs, the 50 yard 1/2", 3/8" and 13mm clubs.

Bolt return assembly is all Rimfire Technologies with O-rings in the handle grooves.

Trigger group is the ever-awesome KID 2-stage (8/8)with extended release lever and straight black trigger (perfect for vertical grips).

Scope is a Bushnell Elite 4200 8x-32x.










After my first trip to the range, my thoughts were:
I have never experienced such a fine shooting gun - from start to finish.
I shot about 250 rounds onto an assortment of targets at 50 yards, all with
incredible results. I shot seven 10-bull targets with my worst score being
a 99 of 100 with 4x's. Six were 100's and ranged from 5-8x's. I shot 12,
5-shot groups that ranged from 0.06 to 0.23, group sizes that I often have
a difficult time accomplishing with bolt-action guns. I then shot 4 of the
50 yard tack drivers - all of which scored 25/25. I cannot remember a time
that I shot as consistently well, especially on a maiden voyage with a gun.
My only challenge was to stay within my concentration zone with all the
people who walked up to ask about the details of the gun.

I will post some additional targets from yesterday as soon as I score/measure them.

Very best to all....

John

July 2013 Ultimate 10-22 Contest Third Place: "E-L-K" by DrGunner

July 2013 Third Place:

"Eliminator-Kidd-Lilja aka E-L-K" by DrGunner




I would have to say that my biggest point of pride in building this one is it's overall accuracy and accomplishments. The build was an evolution that took 18 months in total, going through four different barrels and a full pillar bedding process before I was happy. It is amazingly accurate, and now only gets shot on more rare occasions kind of like the sports car under the cover in the garage that you don't drive every day...


Revolution Eliminator stock in "Coffee" color, pillar and Devcon bedded
1" Bronze Ruger eagle medallion countersunk into bottom of pistol grip
Bisley adjustable butt plate
Ruger Black/silver eagle leather sling & swivels
Rail for Bipod/Bag rider
1/4-20 takedown screw
Kidd Classic black rcvr with rear tang 20 MOA rail
Lilja 21" Stainless Match barrel, floated
Kidd receiver pins and buffer
Kidd silver scalloped bolt
Kidd 2 stage trigger w/straight red trigger, 3oz/5oz, custom skullie mag release by Chaser
Heier custom charging handle w/Ruger eagle
Scope: Mueller 8-32x44 Side Focus target scope on Leupold QRW rings, low

50 yards:



100 yards:




Tack driver 25 yards:

Tack driver 100 yards, plus Long Driver, same target:





Thanks to Admin and the other Moderators for their support, advice and assistance. Thanks to all the members for the help, suggestions, and most of all-
For your patience with me throughout this process.

Respectfully,

DrGunner

August 2013 Ultimate 10-22 Contest Winner: "Tuck Molten Magma" by Chaser

August 2013 Winner:

"Tuck Molten Magma" by Chaser


Per Chaser-

Can't find the original thread...and really did not step by step it the way guys are doing it now.

Did find...


Post 108
https://rimfirecentral.com/forums/sho...atewood&page=8



Post 3
https://rimfirecentral.com/forums/sho...light=Gatewood





It was Gatewood born like this...Tuck nicknamed it "ol ugly" while he was workin' on it...



Several in this one..
https://rimfirecentral.com/forums/sho...light=Gatewood







Several things...this gun morphed several times...
Stock was by C. Gatewood whom stated it was one of 40 that he build...39 of which were shipped to Germany..this one is said to be (but I can't prove that) the only one (originals) in the USA...then I had him Ebony grip cap it...making it even more one-of-a kind.
Tuck added the Molten Magma.
It has had 2 barreled actions in it..first a "T" barreled action with my home brew trigger..
It has has at least 3 triggers in it..as it is right now it has a late 70's Alum TG, RT pull release, Power Custom Hammer and Adj. Sear, RT Trigger with matching Candy Red inset and torsion return at 2 lbs. that I hand tuned. RT bolt handle assembly with my Skullie Bling, Bolt by CPC, all internals polished.
The barrel is one of the RFC limited/numbered muzzle weighted that GM did..it is #36 of 100. Flutes painted and Stainless was polished to glossy by me.
The Rec. that it now wears is/was one of the most un-savory that Ruger ever produced..THE TEXTURE PAINT version..I was determined to make it look nice and opted to carefully strip the top edges of the Rec.and paint it with the matching Candy Red..then top coated with Automotive Clear.
Intensity 6.5-20x44AO optic with threaded filter, TS base, Burris Sig Zee Rings.
It is a proven MOA shooter out to 75 yds. Targets archived so deep I can't find them...not shot enough at 100 yds to be proven and very limited usage as of the last 3-4 years and has resided mostly in the safe when peeps are not drooling on it and fondling it.

Todays Pic's...

August 2013 Ultimate 10-22 Contest Second Place: "McMillan/Kidd SG by Dr Heckel

August 2013 Second Place:


"McMillan/Kidd Supergrade" by Dr Heckel
Per Dr Heckel:
This is truly my dream 10/22. Often once you finish with a build you think if I were to do it over again I'd change this or that. That isn't the case this time. It's everything I wanted and turned out even better than I imagined.

I started this build with the stock as the main focus. I knew that this rifle was going to be used off of a bench only so I wanted to get a stock designed for that purpose alone. A 3" wide forend was a must have feature . I looked around at all of the options and the McMillan Anschutz BR-50 was the clear favorite for me. I changed my mind on the color combo numerous times and my uncertainty delayed my order considerably. I thought I would like a light grey/med grey/black flame marble so I searched everywhere I could to find one similar. Once I laid my eyes on it I knew it was the color combo for me so I placed the order. I had McMillan set the LOP to 14" and also had them do a complete fill on the stock to maximize the weight for stability. Once I placed my order I had to wait just over 4 months for them to complete the stock. It turned out great and I couldn't be happier.

When it came to the barreled action it wasn't a tough decision at all. This was going to be my dream 10/22 and I wanted the best of the best. IME that title goes to KIDD. I already owned a complete KIDD Classic so I knew how high quality their rifles are. I chose their Supergrade receiver which has the barrel threaded into the receiver for maximum stability and removes any possibility of movement between the barrel and receiver. On standard 10/22s the barrel slides in the receiver and is held in by a small metal block and two screws. The receiver also has an rear tang which adds a second takedown screw and makes the receiver incredibly stable. The barrel is a 20" bead blasted .920. The trigger is the legendary KIDD two stage with black straight blade and is set at 3ozs for the first stage and 3ozs for the second. It is an absolutely amazing trigger and perfect for a dedicated benchrest rifle. Finally I chose KIDDs black ion bonded scalloped bolt to contrast with the silver receiver.

The scope is a Weaver T36 with 1/8 dot reticle. I used Burris Signature Zee rings which have many benefits over standard rings. The most notable is the ability to swap the polymer inserts to add MOA to the rings. This allows you to shoot at longer ranges with cranking the scopes internal adjustments. I have it set-up to shoot anywhere from 15 yards out to 200+ without any hold over.

Finally I'd like to say thank you to all that helped me get to the finals! I truly appreciate your votes!






















SLIDESHOW

I've posted a handful of target in my original build thread. The rifle is easily a MOA shooter. Targets on page 4-
https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=495222

The rifle is currently in first place in the 1/4" at 25 game, target on page 18-
https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=462790

And 8th place in the 1/2" at 50 game, target page 12-
https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=462794

I haven't had this rifle to the range all that much yet, definitely less than 10 times. Its looking to be incredibly accurate and Im getting tighter groups every trip to the range. I expect the accuracy to continue to improve the more I get it out and shoot it!

Thanks for nomination on the rifle guys! Been a while since I've been here...work, life and kids have taken up most of my time lately, so haven't gotten to shoot much lately.

Special thanks to azguy for doing the fantastic bedding job and added rear tang, and to Leo Bourne for the one of a kind stock. The gun shoots lights out..1" 100 yard groups are common with it.

I'll happily accept the nomination:bthumb
