I was thinking the Boyd rimfire hunter + CPC and I'd be in pretty good shape. Scoping the rifle is an entirely different can of worms from what I've been reading! I'm ancy to go shooting so if I can put off that expense for a bit then I'm all for it. I just needed to hear someone talk me out of keeping the current barrel.
Not a lot of aftermarket barrels with iron sights. And why do you need an after market stock? Boyds stocks are heavy. A carbine stock is light in comparison.If your going iron sights then the cpc routE and a set of tech sights is your best bet.

I was looking at aperture sites I like the lower profile ones like Skinner.

Go with the sporter barrel for now. When you have graduated and have a job then you can treat yourself to a Kidd barreled action with all of the goodies.

Yes when money a issue I would stay with the Ruger carbine barrel also...
When I am asked for a aftermarket barrel suggestion - my answer is just Shilen...
Now the poster (R Mac) has no intention of buying a $300 Shilen which is fine...
For those who can buy Shilen, buy directly from Shilen or Brownells... I seen aftermarket internet sellers of Shilen sell scrap barrels for the same $300... Beware...

Green Mountain barrel blanks coming from GM or Brownells remain good and a good buy...

You mentioned precision rimfire in your original post, are you talking about the NRL22 matches? They are a lot of fun and and I am sure a CPC'd factory barrel would have the accuracy needed with good ammo for club level matches. That said for NRL22 or other shooting competitions weight can be your friend as heavier rifle steadies up better than a light carbine. The 10/22 I built up for NRL22 weighs about 10.5 lbs without sling or bipod, which is light compared to what a lot of competitors are using. Mine wears a 20" bull barrel, Vortex 4X16 scope w/MRAD reticle bedded in a Boyd's pro varmit stock with a button tang and a reworked trigger (1.5#pull). Also there are adaptors that allow you to mount Tech type sights on a bull barrel for iron sight matches.
