10/22 Scout



Log in to see fewer ads
So here's my new 10/22.

1st phase complete:
Bought a 10/22 Compact with a factory barrel cut to 16" an threaded. The trigger group had an emblem with the word "Empire" on it, it was made of aluminum, I believe. Not sure if that was stock or not. I took it apart and cleaned it up, did the auto bolt release mod, closed it up put a UTG quad rail on with a $40 scout scope. Fun little shooter; the scope zeroed quickly and I had some time to blast some rapid fire 30 rnd mags. Here she is:





I may paint the stock black, or do a grey digi-cam. the camo seems like it'd be tough.
I'd also like to put a phantom 5c2 fh and some sort of barrel strut on it, too, for more of an m14 look....

Any thoughts?

Nice and clean look going on right now. I actually just did some camo myself today. There are some good vids in YouTube if you need some hints.

To paint camo, heres the quickest way ive found.

Go to the store and pick up green, black, and brown krylon camo paints.

rough up the stock first with some 220 grit sandpaper, so the paint will stick better.

Now lay down a even basecoat of either the green or brown depending on your enviroment.

Once this is dry, go out and collect some long, slendor weeds or other folliage.

To get texture, simply fan out a large clump of the weeds, and lay them on the stock, then spray. When you lift it up, the pattern will show. Then just keep moving down the rifle. Repeat with any other colors.

Then I like to give my rifle a "dusting" of brown paint. To do this simply hold the can like 16 in away, and lightly dust the stock. This helps blend the colors together.

I then clear coat with 4 coats of spray on satin polyurethean.

Thank for the comments guys, it is a work in progress. Looking into a barrel strut and Phantom flash hider, next.

The camo stock will definitely make a good winter project, want it to look good though, I'll probably do a light grey to black digital camo. Been watching youtubes on how to do do it, not an immediate necessary mod but, it's on the list.

Ok, I know Im rambling...goodnight

Barrel strut? That's a new one to me.....except of course for mini 14/30's.

If you don't plan to use the side rails, and would like something a little more comfortable that will still allow you to mount the scope scout-style, take a look at

Spum, I have been eyeballing that rail for some time now. It came out a few months after finishing this build. I'm a little skeptical though, as the rail you posted only connects to the top of the receiver and is not anchored/supported over the barrel. I have played with the idea of chopping some of the side rails off of my build, but I think I may just leave it as is.

I'd like to try one out but haven't found one close enough locally.
