Well I've caught the SS bug. plus y'all are just more friendly down here! but im watching for pirates!? :2ar15smil
I've been reading a ton from this section, LOVING the guns and the generosity down here. Also read there's a tradition of making your own thread for your projects so... HOLD ON, IM GOING TO RAMBLE.
so just a little about me. been shooting regularly since I was 18 (am 24 now), parents didnt like guns, my uncles taught me how to shoot as a kid, first gun I ever shot was a 10/22. first gun I owned was a off-brand 12ga, then a 10/22 shortly there after.
discovered RFC late last year. cant keep a 10/22 configured the same for more than a few weeks ever since.
my first project was a tactical build, I know... I know... but they do look COOL.
then turned it into an ultimate... had the angel stock so bought a beater 10/22 and played dress up with her
Now im ready to make a cool AND beautiful rifle.
I'm trading my Archangel stock for 2 DSP stocks. so im starting with the beater again.
and she does show her age, (1989)
I have a DSP on the way (hopefully)
The bolt has been Que'd
Tier 3 Brimstone trigger, I may upgrade to the tier 2, If Dave will let me just pay the dif. Also want to paint the trigger, or do something to fix it up.
I have the newer factory barrel from my ultimate, should I take off the rusty one?
I've kind of already tried and its very tight as in not budging (with what I have in the apartment) and I have none of the proper tools, barrel pusher, vice, etc.
My friends have a workshop with common metal working stuff I can use.
Should I just get a sporter barrel? What kind? I DO have a budget, I only spent $100 on my GM for my 'ultimate' soo I'd like to be around there for this. ALSO the GF thinks both my ultimate (which IS heavy) and my tactical were too heavy for her to shoot for anything more than a magazine or 2 so weight is a concern.
Thanks for the welcome I've already recieved and I hope to contribute to your already amazing section.
