There is a seller on ebay selling full drawings of the 10/22, may be worth a look.
Do a search for "Ruger 10/22 Rifle Drawings Receiver Blueprints". Looked to be pretty complete.

Hey TBR
Once you have checked them againsat a reciever, which I assume you will do, let me know how accurate they are please. I may be interested in a set myself. I have compared a bunch of the other stuff on the web and it all leaves much to be desired as far as being accurate. Hopefully these prints are what they are described to be.

]Love that bike build. Amazing ingenuity and creativeness guy

Will do.

The drawings I already have are helpful enough, but one could never build a complete receiver from them. It seems much of the problem will be machining a receiver that is usually cast. Looking at the Ruger receiver, there are many areas that would be impossible to machine with conventional end mills and cutters, like the recoil spring guide detent recess. It is cast into the inside of the Ruger receiver with the detent hole punched in, maybe? I see no way to get a drill into that point on a finished receiver. A dentist's drill might do it. I have a milled VQ receiver at home, but I haven't taken the rifle apart yet to examine it.

In the competition kit for the Razor 80% receiver they include a 3/32"x 8" bit to drill that recess.

Hey TBR
Over at Lowes they have a 6" and a longer drill extension. The "chuck" fits 1/4 hex end bits. The chuck also fits thru the barrel receiver or shank hole. Should allow you to access that spot. Nothing but a simple really, so shouldn't take anything extravegent to do. Hope this helps

Here's a pic of me using one while I was inletting a reciever for the KiDD Rear Tang. Works well on things, other than a drill, as well.

Check out this thread TBR. Homebuilt steel receiver. Nice looking job with some creative workarounds that might come in handy guy.

Enlightening thread. I hope to make everything out of one piece of brass, but, like you indicated, there is some ingenious jerry-mandering going on there, which is always enlightening. Thanks.

As far as drilling that spring guide detent hole, the pure machinist in me would never allow me to access through the barrel shank hole (or use such a long, spindly drill), just because it would not be perfectly square, or in line. On the other hand, I'll probably end up having to do something similar. I've got many dentist friends...I'm thinking a right angle dentist's drill will do the trick. The bigger problem may be getting that little block that anchors the spring guide in there machined square. I know everyone probably uses a Dremel tool, or something like that, but that would be a last resort for me. I plan to tear down my Volquartsen machined receiver tonight and get some hints on how to machine this whole thing.

Thanks again,

TBR

I think that it would look great. Too bad you can send a block of brass to someone who has a CNC machine set up to machine 10/22 receivers. It sure would be quick.

I have several sets of blueprints for the 10-22 receiver. Here are the ones I have. I don't have the trigger group or the bolt, but those are available without FFL transfer.

Here ya go.
