Smoking it with a propane torch may help. Never tried that technique on a stock but it does do some interesting effects on wood planking.

I've been breaking in my RART and getting ready for a NRL22 match next week. She's pretty much stock - I did change out the trigger spring for an ink pen spring. Added a cheek riser, flush cups, and Magpul sling. The scope is a Cabela's Convenant 6-24 X 50 FFP - Christmas tree type retical in MOA.

She eats up CCI SV pretty well with some sub-MOA groups at 50 and the one time I used Lapua Center X produced a .41MOA group after the first 10 rounds.

I almost got the CZ 455 instead of this but since I already had a 10/22 and lots of mags, sooo... here we are. No complaints about this one.

My 8yo son's birthday present and his first gun (bottom, top one is mine.) I cut down a Talo 22lr to youth size. The barrel is 16.25" and threaded with a seamless thread/muzzle protector which provides a nicely recessed target crown. Barrel work done by LRI Inc. I swapped the original gold bead front sight for the fiber-optic version. Length of pull is 12.5". I cut the stock myself with a melonite blade and fixturing described by a MidwayUSA video. Grind to fit recoil pad took me two tries to get just right. I chamferred all the sharp edges Ruger left. Brownell's competitor plus sling. Comes in at 5.3lbs with magazine.

I believe this is a better youth gun then the CZ for several reasons. The CZ is heavier. The weight is the first thing my son notices because he's only ever known ultra-light BB guns. The safety on the RAR is preferable imo, as is the bolt release. Then there's the Ruger magazines. Stainless for low maintenance rust prevention. The seamless muzzle protector looks great while providing a lot of much needed protection to the crown. Sticking the muzzle in the dirt seems to come naturally to kids and I'm working hard to break my son of that habbit, but that protector will save the day if he forgets.

Anyway, I'm proud of my son and I'm proud of the rifle I built for him.

RART thumbhole, Vortex Diamondback 6-24x50, Leupold Rifleman medium rings (not much space between the scope and barrel, but it clears it), Harris bipod. Timney trigger on the way.

Talo 8364 .22WMR

Got it back in December, so it was pretty chilly when sighting it in. It did account for several squirrels and one coyote, I do love hunting in the snow. It's box stock, and I use only 9 rd. magazines. Inexpensive Tasco scope, mounted using the standard rimfire grooves. The 3/4" recoil pad would be at home on a .375 H&H magnum. I messed with the adjustable trigger, but ended up at where it was set brand new. Biggest thing, though, is that the rifle fits me exactly and shoulder's quick. I used CCI Maxi-Mag HPV 30 gr hollow points all season, but I've been experimenting with others this summer, but nothing better so far. I like the balanced weight. Don't all of you just love finding a gun that's perfect for you?

note: doesn't look like it, but there is a 3/16" gap between scope and barrel
