Glad you like it. It's much more than the stock alone, it's the whole
package and design. You need to see one and handle one to appreciate
the quality, the photo doesn't do it justice.

True, the price isn't for everyone. For those who have already taken delivery
of their SG, the price was never an issue. It was even less significant after
seeing their completed conversion in their hands. Just like a lot of new products,
some people just have to have it. I think the workmanship and unique design
aspects are worth every penny, but I'm biased, haha.

It shoots as good as the barrel can shoot. The platform was designed to clamp
the barrel in place to reduce vibration, and to keep the barrel rock steady. No
worries about floating and stock interference, one solid unit.

Thanks again for the comments.
More to come soon, pics that is.

I think it's awsome looking! If I ever win the lottery I'm going to get a couple. One in .22LR and one in .22 WMR. I like bullpups and your design is awsome.

Have you considered producing a bullpup action for a bolt gun? I know you'd have to rework some of the stock but I like the way the barrel is clamped and everything else floats around it.

How does the trigger feel on your bullpup? I know that the long linkages of the bullpup design is known for adding a spongy feel to the triggers.

Do you know how much the trigger on this rifle weighed in at?

Big Mac, glad you like my work.
To answer your question regarding the trigger pull.
Big Mac,

The Magnum model trigger pull is probably about 2 1/2 to 3 lbs.
We have developed several bull pup trigger designs over
the year and came up with a pretty solid system for the SGs.

I have yet to put a trigger pull guage on the one shown, but I am
pretty sure the SG shown is close to what I estimated above. I do
have a few Long Rifle models that I have guaged at 2 lbs. The triggers do
lighten up over time as the sear and hammer hone each other.

I have thought about other applications for the bull pup, but haven't really
pursued them that much. The 10/22 is so perfectly suited for such a design
that I keep coming up with new conversion ideas that tend to eat up all of
my alloted R&D time. You will be seeing several new 10/22 bull pup conversions
coming out of my shop over th enext few months. Thanks again for the comments.

Will have some test targets posted possibly by this weekend. My friend/customer
bought a box of every brand of 22 mag ammo available for an accuracy and reliability test.
We are going to put it to the test on Sunday, I hope.

Thanks again guys,
Please let me know if you need more info. You can also refer to my web site 10/22
page for technical data on the SG conversion.

Hi guys, I'm the friend /customer that Matt was talking about. That's my weapon in the pic and she is sweeeeeet.Matt has answered most of your questions. If the weather improves this weekend we will be at the range and test some different ammo in the weapon.

You talked about the price of the stock, and yeah it may seem high but think what is involved. It is not just a wood stock, but a whole chasis. Looking around the web how many of us have built up or bought 1000.00 rifles then had something that looked like another. What dose one of those 'plastic" bullpups cost?
Hopefullt Matt will post some of the other ones that he has built up.
Anyway great job Matt!!!!!

Matt sounds like he has my dream job!

Onexscout, welcome to RFC, I look forward to seeing the targets. That red pakkawood sure is pretty.

Matt, do you use the Ruger Receiver (upper) inside the tubeular stock or just the ruger bolt? And how does it dissasemble?

Onexscout, You da man, thanks bud for the nice words.

Big Mac,

We use the complete factory Ruger receiver and trigger group.
A trigger tune is performed using the best hammer available,
the Volquartsen match hammer. We use a little voodoo on some of
the various parts in the trigger group to get the 2 21/2 lb pull.

Just so you know, there is a complete description of the SG features
on the 10/22 page of my web site.

Http://www.Ironwooddesigns.com

Regarding assembly/ disassembly. Here is the short version.
Remove the butt stock, butt plate, and butt plate block, takes about 1 minute.
There are two barrel clamps, one external and one internal.
The barreled action, with the bolt and trigger group removed
is slid into the SG chassis. The bolt in installed, as well as the trigger group.
The IWD bull pup trigger rod is slipped into the IWD trigger lever/actuator.

Tighten the internal and external clamp screws, replace the butt plate block and the
butt stock and shoot.

The first time assembling usually takes about 10-15 minutes. After you do as many
as I have, it takes about 5 total. It's pretty straight forward if you have the SG in your
hand and take a look at the design.

Hope this sheds a little light on the subject.

Thanks again onexscout, see you at the range if it's not raining.
