Today on Twitter someone asked for a more-consolidated list of all the various parts I used to build the Frankten-22 that performed so well at the Appleseed event I attended.
Here we go:
- Receiver: Tactical Machining Finished 10/22 Receiver ($129)
- Barrel: Whistle Pig Gun Barrel Company 20” Matte Black Ported Octagon Barrel ($217)
- Trigger Group: Force Productions 10/22 Trigger Group ($220)
- Stock: Hogue Rubber Overmolded 10/22 Stock ($70)
- Bolt: Ruger Standard Bolt Assembly ($30)
- Extractor: Volquartsen Exact Edge Extractor ($12)
- Bolt Handle: Power Custom Competition Bolt Handle ($33)
- Magazine Release: Lever-style release included in Force Productions Trigger Group
- Bolt Release: Modified bolt release included in Force Productions Trigger Group
- Bolt Buffer: Tuffer Buffer Ruger 10/22 Bolt Buffer ($13)
- Take-Down Screw: Ruger 10/22 Take Down Screw ($5)
- V-Block: Tactical Solutions Ruger 10/22 V-Block ($24)
- V-Block Screws: Tactical Innovations V-Block Blue Steel Cap Screws ($3)
- Receiver Pins: Tactical Innovations Receiver Cross Pins ($5)
The grand total comes to $761, but note those are ‘sticker’ prices at their various sites; I used a $10 off coupon code for the receiver, waited until Brownells was running a sale, and have a Curio and Relic license which gives me a further discount at Brownells, and I only paid about $650ish. Just to put that in perspective, C&R licenses cost $30 for three years; think about it.
With those parts, and a hell of a lot of elbow grease (more on that in future posts), you can assemble this rifle (minus the scope, rings, sling, and sling loops):
…Which shot this grouping at 25 yards:
…With my lame ass behind it.
I dare say that is pretty good for something I put together on my dining room table.
