    10/22 Parts and Accessories

    My husband bought me this Ruger 10/22, my first firearm and I'm quite enjoying it, however I'd like to make it more my own by adding just a touch of pink or purple. I can find so many American sites with parts, but they don't ship to Canada (likely due to their export laws) and I cannot find any Canadian sites/stores. I'm near the border Ontario/Buffalo, NY and don't mind even driving to find something. Always up for a good road trip!

    For example, I'd like to upgrade my plastic barrel band to an aluminum one (in pink or purple), matching extended mag release, that sort of thing.

    Thanks!

    Take the barrel band off and leave it off.

    It’s not needed, and in fact it makes your accuracy worse.

    As for parts, the Boyd’s website has the most options you’re goig to find in different shapes and colours.

    MagPul and Hogue are the best name brands who make the stocks, but that doesn’t help you finding them locally.
    I have no signature block.

    Amazon has some Hogue stocks, I can't say if the prices are any good though, you should check around. If you wanted to change the color of the stock, there are a few threads on painting and refinishing. Here is a link to a cheaper one on Amazon...

    If you have a synthetic stock, there are people who hydro dip things. It looks very good too.

    How do I change my signature to something about Bacon?

    A nice laminate with a pink touch

    10yrs ago almost every american site would ship to canada, quite sad for the 10/22 market now.

    I've read conflicting thoughts on the barrel band. Maybe I'll try it without and see which I like better.

    I thought about having my stock dipped, but I like it black. The dipping process is very cool.

    There are no real conflicting thoughts on things touching the barrel.

    All the best guns built for accuracy have free floating barrels.

    Any idea why they stopped? Is it a legal thing?

    For sure, scared of running afoul of us export laws, paperwork, and iirc the fees.
    So extra laws, time, and money associated with doing business with an out of country customer.
