Adventure/camping fold-up Rifle .22 Ruger 10/22

I wanted to start another thread regarding this tool. It is not going to compete with the original thread - The M6 - by no means.

We are going to be building a cheap, minimalistic, ultra portable light-weight survivor/adventure/backpacking rifle.

There are many after-market options for this rifle. You can literally spend thousand dollars, but you don't have to.

My design calls for:
One factory Ruger 10/22




Through out this thread I will ask for your input in helping me design the stock. I fired an email to Hogue asking them if they are willing to produce a prototype.

Design Philosophy:
- Accesorized
- Portable
- Light Weight Materials
- Minimum, yet optimum supporting structure
- Quick tear-down/assembly
- Cheap
- Avoid "Tacti-not-cool" look
- Remain legal

Why build your own?

There are an arm a dozen designs and models out there, but none really fit my needs. The quick tear down is one of them, or they are lacking usable stock.







Areas of focus:
- Shorter barrel
-- Cut stock to 16.25"
-- Buy more expensive flutted bull barrel.
- Minimum support structure
- Hollow colapsable or folding stock that doubles as storage
- Stock accessories
-- Round belt
-- Knife mount
-- Flint Mount



Working ideas



Use Butler Creek Packer stock mated with a butler creek folding stock, replace buttstock with hollow buttstock.
Problem: You can't find these stocks anywhere.

years ago, I had one that all tore down and went into the plastic stock.

It may have been a Ruger as well...

Surely they still make it.

I'd just use a pistol myself. A good Ruger Bull Barrel .22 is as acurate as a rifle.

I saw a folding stock for the 10/22 recently at a Cabela's (I think it was Butler Creek). It was made out of Zytel or something and the folding shoulder portion was aluminum, and locked up solidly with no play. I'm tinking of picking one up.

As a Ruger aficionado of many years, I don't think you are describing a Ruger. I suspect you are thinking about the Henry AR7:

Then get yourself a Tri Mag for added boolyet capacity (use 3 factory mags) without the long and unreliable banana mags.

Ruger already makes a SUPER compact factory 10/22, the Charger....which technically is a pistol but would be ideal for stowing in a pannier, etc.

It's not practical. I want a buttstock thats outfitted.

Not to try to hijack, but I think a better bang for the buck is the Kel Tec Sub-2000, less weight IIRC



If you want a cheaper caliber they have the SU-22.

I am keeping an eye on those too.. but they look too tactical, and thus draw too much negative attention.

You beat me to it FX. I'm getting my son a sub 2000 in .40 S&W for his birthday next month. At least when you hit something with a .40 it stops moving. Same can't be said for .22LR.

What is impractical about it? Just the lack of a buttstock, or the lack of storage?
