    I was looking at their receivers but I figured I'd eventually go for a dlask since the aluminum is 7075

    For $600, that's a good deal though, stock is at least $200, receiver is $200, $350 for the barrel, so you're saving $150 - smart move tbh

    This is the first time I've heard about this site! I might have to try out one of their stocks!

    Thanks for the heads up, and let us know how it shoots!

    Not to mention free shipping and a discount code.- I should buy 3 and tell the wife that the third was free.

    The total cost was $580-The X-22 stock is usually around $200-$230 +tax so ~$230 to $260 or so just for that.

    I have hummed and and hawed about getting a Dlask receiver for a couple of years, - I think they would be a great unit. Now, I am not sure that in this application that the 6061 is that much of an issue.The Ruger 10/22 competition receiver is made from 6061. According to Chuck hawks site, the original 10/22 receiver is made from A-380- (probably because it is cast). The barrel being a lightweight jobmakes the the 6061 even less of an issue I think- but we shall see.

    I will have to buy a bolt and barrel clamp I guess, despite justifying the purchase to myself, by saying I would use the bolt from a rifle I already have

    If I had lots of money I would probably opt for a Valquartsen (SP?) Stainless receiver.

    At that price you can't afford to not buy them! It's simple math.

    Good point, I have one of the 12" or so dlask barrels and probably wouldn't make a difference either

    GreyBirch announced an upcoming sale for their 'Foundation' chassis on the other site. Incentive for first 100 sold. should be announced on social media they said.
    Keep eyes open if interested. Might be neat to throw a 10/22 heavy barrel in that
