    I bought the barell and Stock at a gun show today (see below). Now i just want to make sure about what else i need to complete this gun

    So far I have

    Bolt, Trigger assembly, reciever.

    Anything im forgeting. Anyone know of any places that make this stuff aftermarket, as Ruger doesnt sell the reciever. Does anyone actually sell the reciever or am I SOL. I have found them on EBAY, so if worse comes to worse, ill go there.

    Aything else I should know for building this thing? Whats some good companies and some bad? Thanks

    The receiver is the gun- you say you have one then ask where to get one so I'm lost.

    for building it though check out rimfirecentral, All that's left of my 10/22 the same as it came from the factory is the receiver. Trigger work, bolt work, new barrel/stock. Things are dang fun.

    Alright, let me try wording it different. I only have the stock, and the barrel. What else do i need in terms of assembly. The trigger assemblies i have seen complete. What else do i need other then that?

    receiver and bolt. it's probably gonna cost you a good amount of money. probably not worth building it.

    damn. I have found the bolts for a reasonable price. But your right about the reciever. 189 bucks plus FFL fees. I was hoping to score a deal, but damn, at least i have the stock and barell that I wanted.

    well i may try to build it since I have time to spare. Ive seen a few recievers floating around, i just need to reasearch how much it is to have it sent to an FFL. Ive seen them for around 80 bucks. Which would still put me below the 219 for a new one.

    its worth a shot, either way ive got the stock and barrell i wanted.

    Yeah, go to walmart and pick up a cheapy there. You want stainless? get some stripper and strip the finish off of the blued version, then polish.

    A stainless carbine like you're trying to build only costs about $220... or a blued carbine is about $150. Just buy a new one and ebay that barrel and stock :dunno:

    Yeah it is. The 'stainless' version is still aluminum.

    midwayusa 10/22 section, has pretty much everyhtign you could ever need for a 10/22 new
    http://www.midwayusa.com/ebrowse.exe/browse?TabID=9&Categoryid=11647&categorystring=10636***10560***9142***

    and just check out brownells, they have a bunch of stuff too
    http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/Home/default.aspx

    and i recommend rimfire central, its a forum dedicated mainly to the 10/22, but it also touches base on other .22 firearms

    as for a reciever, hit uip pawn shops, with the popularity of 10/22's ive heard of people picking htem up for 50-100 bucks, which is worth it if you take the reciever and sell off the rest, profit?

    You are backwards.

    Most people buy a crappy gun to use ONLY the receiver. Then, they usually sell off the rest; looks like that's what you bought -- THE REST.

    The barrel and stock are the least desireable parts about the rifle to those doing builds. That's why they get rid of them. Your best bet if you want to "build" a 10/22 -- go to Rimfirecentral.com, sell the stuff you have, go to Walmart, buy a rifle, and start over.

    ...my $0.02; hope you didn't pay much more than that for the parts.

    Im over at rimfire central. Im trying to build with what i have, if for nothing more then pure stubborness. I may be able to comeout with brand new everything else for a good price. If i can find a FFL dealer here that isnt a rip off.

    Thanks for the advice anyway, it was definatly a spur of the moment decision that i shouldnt have made, but oh well, it wasnt that much and they are useable parts.

    yep.. its cheaper to buy a whole gun from walmart to get a receiver than to purchase it in parts.

    I bought a stainless 10/22 a few yrs back for $199 new.. and sold the 80% of the gun I didnt want and almost broke even.
