Ruger 1022 project 2 Ruger 1022 project 1





We recently had the opportunity to do something that we normally don’t get to do in the shop with a Ruger 10/22 Takedown.  For those of you who are not familiar with this gun, you really need to check it out.  The gun breaks down quickly with the throw of a lever in the forend.  The uses of this gun are virtually limitless.  LEO applications are countless for those wanting something very quiet.  Civilians will appreciate that this gun packs up easily and will make a great bug out or get home gun.

We took the stock gun and modified a Butler Creek Folder stock.  These are currently not available for this model.  We cut the stock, milled the proper recesses for the hardware and finished it off with stippling for a clean look.

All of the plastic was replaced including the trigger and the trigger housing.  The bolt release was modified for one handed operation, a must with these guns.  A trigger job was performed to give it a 3lb pull that is crisp with overtravel set.  The barrel was threaded for a suppressor. Finally a red dot was added and sighted in.  This gun is ready for the woods, the car or just in case.
