Just one more pic, if you'll indulge me...
Finally got a suitable barrel (22" Midway; thanks! to mutwagn) to complete a proper 10/22 sporter.
The stock is my chopped International, now a close copy of a 77/22 stock. Scope is a Bushnell Banner 4-12x40AO.
A rushed visit to the range today shows promise: .23"@25yds (10rds,CCI MiniMag), .82"@50yds (19rds,Win PowerPoint).
Certainly much better results than from the stock International, or my Walmart 10/22-22.
I think Ruger should offer a factory model like this, perhaps with 20" barrel.
