    My 10/22

    Just figured I'd have a thread for my 10/22
    It started out as a compact model in 2007, ended up with a 18" factory barrel in a bc folding stock, and tech sights, for the longest time.
    When I purchased a 12.5" dlask barrel a year or two ago, it ended up in a factory wood stock modified for the bull barrel.
    Needed a sight, so one of the bushnell trs25s I had sitting around seemed like a good fit.
    Now, I want to put it into a magpul stock later, and the 12.5" barrel for it seems a little short, so I found a xm177 style long flashhider for it.
    A bit ridiculous but I guess it's going to stay. The end of the road is a mapleseed setup, although it's quite fun with the wood stock and 12.5" barrel as is.

    Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty — and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. - H.L. Mencken

    An interesting work in progress. I have a Mannlicher stocked stainless 10-22 en route from Bullseye, and a walnut stocked "deluxe" version currently in my gun rack. Never thought of modifying the latter, but, at the very least, I may now just put a rail and modern optic on it and use it to "sluice" (as an old friend used to describe shooting ducks on the water) sprucies and the odd ruffie when a shotgun would be just plain destructive.

    how is the TRS25?

    I've been thinking about getting one for my Henry...

    I'm also thinking about doing the Maple seed but I only have a Henry.

    Lever action henry? I think they may allow you extra time for the lever action, but I'm not sure. Might be worth asking, it is fun to do.
    As far as $100 red dots go, the trs25 is quite decent for the price, although it may look too pedestrian on a nice lever action. It'd certainly be fun though.
    I wouldn't use it for hunting, just in case it doesn't hold up, but for plinker rifles like my 10/22 no worries from me.

    I like TRS25s. I had a couple. I never broke one yet.

    You can make speed loaders for your Henry easy. I made some out of 3/8 brake line and tiny hitch pins.

    Same concept.. Just brake line is easier to find.

    Nice Ruger. Got mine back in the early 70"s, it's still factory original.
