Kidd 10/22 receiver



Log in to see fewer ads
Wanting to put together a light weight plinker/occasional hunter. I have usually shyed away from Bull Barrels due to weight; I shot off of the bench maybe 25% of the time and plink from field positions and hunt the remainder of the time. Iíve been looking at the ultralight no taper barrels, specifically the Kidd ultralight weight (which I believe tapers to .870) and the TacSol barrels. I will need at least a donor action so I started looking at a complete rifle, receiver and all. Iím r ally liking the Kidd for a complete kit. After all, if I buy a used complete rifle, Iím not but $100-150 difference by the time I do all the upgrades from just buying all the good stuff on the front end. I know I can recoup some money from the parts I donít use too.

So, my long winded above post is to ask this question... what do I gain with the Kidd receiver and guts versus using a Ruger receiver and say Kidd or CPC guts?

If you get the Super Grade receiver you will have the ability to change barrels with just two screws and go from ultralight barrel to a heavyweight .If you get the slip fit receiver from Kidd then you will have a better picatinny rail to mount a scope over the stock Ruger receiver as that is a real weakness of the Ruger receiver. Certainly the machining on the Kidd receiver is much better as well.

Using a OEM Rec. and TG you can add the KID/KIDD Trigger Kit and a Lite Wt. or Ultra-Lt. barrel and be sub-MOA... done it many times. The KID/KIDD Classic Rec. gets you a better look/stronger/tighter tolerance.. will not net you anything on paper.. but, they are indeed a piece of artwork.

ALL KIDD...

Got 5 10/22s with OEM Ruger Receivers and Kidd Internals, Triggers, & Rails. They all function flawlessly, and they all shoot better than I can!

Some, not all, Ruger receivers are bored to make the barrel slightly cant left. For this reason, I now only use Kidd receivers.

Calculate the economics. Calculate the total cost of a new or used 10/22 plus the all of the KIDD components you want to add to it vs buying a complete turn-key rifle from KIDD. You may recover a bit from selling your OEM 10/22 parts but it probably won't be much.

Also, KIDD will stand behind the compete rifle if there are any problems but if you assemble one yourself it will be a lot more difficult to trouble shoot (pun intended).

Factory Ruger Receiver - $90
Hogue stock - $76 (optics planet coupon)
JWH Spider Bolt - $100
JWH Bolt handle - $17 (sale)
VQ ultralight barrel - $191 (Black friday backorder for over a month)
Takedown screw - $4
Cross pins - $6
BX Trigger - $60
Brimstone Job and mag release - $130
Allchin comp - $45

Its a steel gun built to be somewhat lightweight rather than an accuracy gun, but my cousin built it for around $825. The barrel does not cant to the left with the OEM receiver, and I think he bought that piece in November or early December from JWH.

Just an idea of how it adds up and this was with a factory receiver and some of these parts on sales (barrel and charging handle mainly). Just throwing it out there for price comparison purposes on how it can at times be a lesser cost to buy a complete rifle or piece one together with higher end parts than was used on this particular gun.
