Old 10/22 target model?



Log in to see fewer ads
Did ruger make a heavy barrel 10/22 with a walnut stock in the 1970’s? I found one that the serial number puts it in the 1970’s and has a walnut stock that looks factory to me with a heavier forend, no barrel band, no checkering, carbine style butt plate, and a bull barrel channel. The barrel is a green mountain. If Ruger never made one at that time I guess the stock must not be factory. I’ve never seen a walnut stock with a bull barrel.

I have been buying 10-22s since the late 1970s. My first 10-22 was a standard model and back then even the standard model included a walnut stock. I do not recall ever seeing a factory bull barrel walnut stock.

I have not seen one, and the fact it has a Green Mountain barrel says it is probably aftermarket barrel and stock on factory receiver.

If you cut the narrow part off a carbine stock and cut the barrel channel out you have what your talking about.
When I cut my old walnut stock I got a little hate. But I like it.

you can count me among the crowd that dislikes it when older irreplaceable parts get permanently "updated" ...especially when newer/cheaper parts are available as fodder for the modder

Basically,I agree. That said, a short time ago when I enquired of the forum the value of a carbine stock, I was told that the beech ones were essentially fireplace fodder and the walnut ones "maybe $15.00". From that, I determined that they were hardly collector items. Was my information wrong?

Chop-shopping a carbine stock can and has been done many thousands of times.. it's not ideal for sure but to each their own.
Spending some time tapering the notch out is much more desirable.. but then again it's all about personal pref. ...

Whomever told you $15 for a old Walnut was trying to get one extremely cheap..
I personally have had approx. 6 that sold (happily rec'd) at $75-100... depending on the figure/grain... plus the older OEM had metal butt-plates that will sell all by their selves for at min. $50... with or without the paint...

Any OEM with Std. barrel channel can be hogged out to a .920 channel..
