Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Did I leave anyone out?

While Tactical is not my thing, that is super impressive. I LOVE the case work... that is a thing of beauty! A clear sign of an OCD mind!

Utimate 10/22 KT A.K.A. Kidd/Terminator

I am entering my Ultimate 10/22 Kidd/Terminator. I built KT to compete in the games on RFC mostly 1” at 100yds that's why it has a 10x50x60 Sightron SIII Series on top of it. I added a lot of wt. to the stock KT weighs in at 15 1/2 lb. loaded. Next summer I plan on shooting ABRA with it. Thanks for looking.
Les1911

Here is a full description of my build.
Rifle- Kidd/Terminator
Barrel-20” Stainless Steel Kidd .920
Receiver-Kidd, (Kidd Rear Tang, Pins and Buffer), 2 piece, Brass Pillar and Devcon by Les1911
Bolt-Kidd
Trigger-Kidd two stage 3oz,3oz
Scope-10x50x60 Sightron SIII Series, Burris Signature Zee Rings
Stock-Mike Turner Maple and Walnut with unknown center wood
Stock Finish Tru-Oil by lbJennings
Stock Brass Butt Plate by Les1911









The wood on ether side of the Walnut is unknown to me maybe Mike Turner could help.








The last target put KT on top of the leader board 1" at 100yds!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Dave,

Stock came out beautiful. To answer your question about the three layers on either side of the center piece of walnut they are natural maple or birch both of which are blonde in color, then a black layer and finally a purple layer. Something I tried on this stock, and a couple of others, is to taper the center laminate to help keep as much of the figured maple on the butt stock as possible. This technique has pros and cons. The pro of course is the fancy wood on the outside of the butt can be kept to a large degree. The cons, is because it is tapered, it is a bear to get the mounting holes centered from side to side and true to the centerline of the stock. Another con, at least in my opinion, is the center core laminates show more toward the front of the butt stock than the rear! If you notice you stock from a side view, the colored laminates begin to show more at the front!

Mike

When Dave built this rifle, he got top of the line components for his end use of the rifle. He also preformed DIY techniques proven to enhance accuracy, and did them well. The results that have been attained by those choices are better than anything else posted here. This rifle shoots excellent targets, better than any targets posted by any of the other nominated rifles, better than rifles NOT entered in the contest. To go a step further, the wood is extremely attractive.

Bling and accuracy is what makes an 'Ultimate' contest gun. This rifle has a good bit of the first, and hands down the best of the other. I wouldn't want to shoot against this rifle in a match, unless I thought loosing was okay.

Great job Dave, and Mike, for a truly great execution of a very pretty rifle that does exactly what it was made for, great bench performance (accuracy and precision) and excellent looks.

What other rifle in this contest can claim to do both, or more to the point, demonstrate it?................... JMO
One man's opinion........

Wow! Not quite sure how to respond to being "called out" like this, lol. I think the "uniqueness" of a build also comes into play. I don't believe I need to vociferously defend the submittal of the quilted maple build. Just sayin it matches your requirements....... and more.....JMO
(please be sure to take this in the lighthearted, pulling of your chain manner, that is intended.....)

It has been a while since that position changed hands, (maybe never, that game was here before me, so don't know for sure) and that distance is very hard to conquer with a .22lr. A Mach 2 or HMR is better suited for that distance due to velocity and better BC of the bullet.

If a rifle in the contest had a better documented target, by the 'Meisters', I would have commented about it as well. None have and I was simply pointing out the facts, not calling anyone out.

I really don't see anything entered that will beat your quilted maple sporter for first place. It is a gorgeous piece of work. That being said, you know I am a BR guy and would certainly like to see a very nice looking target rifle at least make the final three. For it's intended end use, KT shows the best results in my eye for what it was designed to do, and it's Turner stock is very nice looking. To say, first place results in the most difficult game on the 10/22 forums, using a ballistic inferior cartridge to the Mach 2.

Comparing your rifle and Dave's rifle is apples to oranges. Different styles, different calibers. One built as a well executed show rifle, the other a working target gun with a fancy wood stock that shoots lights out.

I sincerely hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving holiday!!

Later brother.
Thanks for the kind words Scott. And just to clarify, the quilted maple is a WORKING gun and will be used for squirrel hunting. Though I do appreciate the sentiment. Different strokes for different folks, lol.

And to be sure, I am not casting aspersions on Les's rifle, nor Mike's work. Nor anyone else's work on their rifles. Great builds all, in my view. Just in case anyone might perhaps take it that way, my sincerest apologies. These types of posts can go in the wrong direction very easily.

And to EVERYONE, may you and yours have the Happiest of Thanksgivings. Stay aware and be safe!

First off, my sincerest to Les1911 for topping the 100 yard game. That score is amazing and he should be very proud.

I have shot this rifle 3 times at 100, below is the best card so far, just over 1/2 MOA at 100 is no slouch, eh?................. JMO

7" of fresh snow here tonight so it will be some time before I make another attempt- but .103" out of first is doable....

And in the spirit of yanking chains- I didn't happen to see doclu60 anywhere on the 100 yard game

Maybe next season











Bill40178: 3 group= .533" 4 group= .576"

10ring1 : 3 group= .514" 4 group= .552"

Magwa: 3 group= .524" 4 group= .559"

Final scores- 3 group= .524" 4 group= .562"

Well, Sophia, having read those posts before you deleted them, I wasn't sure whether they were meant as read, i.e., insults, at first blush, or some, as said, "yanking chains". But knowing that these guys know each other well and shoot together, I truly believe it was good natured, even if a bit brutal, ribbing. But I suspect some here wouldn't read it that way. Just my humble perspective.

Doug

Thanks for that perspective, Doug, but it makes me wonder if you really saw all of them. From my perspective the one that generated the responses was clearly out of bounds.
