Here's my VQ barreled 77/22 and a pretty typical 10 shot group at 50yds.

Troutman,

I have been wanting to rework my stock 77/22 for awhile now. I really like the look of that Boyd's furniture you have installed.

Looking at the Ross Thumbholes on Boyd's website, I am assuming you have this model:

403-829 ROSS RUGER 77/22 FBC STK PL (VIP) $88.94

... which claims to have a "factory barrel channel" - thus I assume you had to sand it out for the .920 barrel - please confirm this!

If you click on the part number it says the barrel channel is .920. It's very confusing.

DropTheHammer..Yes that is the stock on my rifle. Zomby's right, The barrell channel is plenty wide enough for just about any heavy barrel you might want to fit. I only needed to finish the stock with some fine sanding and a little bit of sanding around the inleting in the action area to get nice square seating of the metalwork to stock. I bedded the action and the first 2" of barrel forward of the barrel clamp with Devcon.

Troutman - What barrel do you have installed? I'm looking at the GM 20" Fluted .920 myself.

Troutman,
hey i'm new to this forum and i have a 77 in 22WMR, shoots ok, but i want to trick it out, i like the looks of yours, i'm thinking a new trigger,stock and bull barrel, sould you give me a list of the mods you did to your rifle and the vendors, i've found green mountain and boyd's. how complicated is it to make these mods? i'm mechanically inclined, but i haven't taken many guns apart. is this something that i should try myself? have you seen where you can buy a .17 barrel for my gun? how hard do you think it would be to change over from .22 WMR? if you could point me in the right direction, i'd appreciate it.
thanks

Hi Crundies,
If you've found Boyd's & Green Mountain, you're well on the way. Take your pick of aftermarket triggers..down here in Oz, the Rifle Basix has a good rep but I reworked & polished the factory trigger on mine. As mentioned in above posts, the rifle is bedded/floated and I've machined an oversize bolt pin to tighten the bolt halves, did a bit of hand lapping of the lugs & bolt mating surfaces. I then set the barrel up centred in the receiver with Loctite and let it set overnight before clamping. If you're in the US, send it all to Randy at CPC for accurizing work. This is what I'd suggest if you haven't played with this stuff, bedding in particular can be a bit tricky.
The change from .22 WMR you propose is not particularly hard or involved, the GM barrel will come with shims for headspace (if needed) and another one for the barrel V-clamp (if needed), all with good instructions. If your Ruger is a synthetic stocked model, you will also need the triggerguard and magazine well from Ruger to use the Boyd's stock. Good luck with the project.

Well I got anxious and couldn't wait for the barrel so I took a couple of pictures

I bought some 30mm rings and once again found myself very lucky.

The bolt is literally mm's away from touching the scope tube.

Had I got mediums I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have worked. The has about 15-20 coats of tung oil but you can't really appreciate it until you see it.




As for scopes, go big or go home

BTW It's January 12th and t-shirt worthy outside. What's up with this weather?
