Hey all. I decided I wanted to do a total project gun. I purchased a NIB Ruger 10/22 carbine, wood stock. I added an extended magazine release, an extended bolt handle, and did a trigger buff/polish job. I got one of those rinky dink Muzzelite bullpup stocks, reinforced it, and removed the carry handle and front sight post. In their place I added a 7 inch picatinny rail to mount a BU AR rear sight and Sightmark red dot, and a small piece of rail to mount a BU AR front sight. I also mounted a vertical foregrip, added a sling stud and Cross Tac sling. I then DuraCoated the entire stock Diamond Plate Stealth. Real nightmare to do on this stock, and it didn't come out 100% perfect, but I am happy with it. The first two pics are of a factory ruger 10/22 and the Muzzelite stock. Second two are my result. Only thing missing is the BU AR rear sight. Let me know what you think.

Forgot to mention, but just above the pistol grip it had HUGE raised letters that said Muzzelite, and then Made In USA smaller below it. I removed the gawdy Muzzelite, but kept the USA.

Sounds neat. My 10/22's current configuration is an M1 Carbine replica. She's great.

I've been looking for a better bullpup stock than the muzzelite one, but the guy who used to make Dixie Consolidated passed I believe (RIP). There was a user on another forum that was doing better ones (Jbunting or something) but I emailed him a 6 months or so and was told I was like 80th on the waiting list. :-/

I've been knocking around tossing either a 10/22 or a 795 into an airsoft P90 frame for a year or two now, would be a nice little DIY project.

Regardless, (i'm rambling), cheers on the gun. How does the trigger feel with the muzzelite, I've heard nothing but horror stories tbh. :-/

Yeah Dixie went under, and JBunting has a huge waiting list. The Muzzelite's main problem is it does not support the receiver well, but this is easily remedied by filling and reinforcing some spots with epoxy. I saw a video of someone doing the p90 frame, that looked pretty cool. The trigger is mushy, but not horrible. I sanded the guide bars down now and smooth, coated them and the friction points of the stock with dry teflon, and its not terrible. Best way to describe it is that its not like the trigger of a real gun, more like a water gun.

Thanks all, the diamond plate would be much easier to do on a smoother surface, or one that can be disassembled more. It was extremely tedious to do. It shoots, I need to sight in the red dot still, and then I will take it from there to see how accurate it is. Hopefully I can get to Freeport sometime this week, I will post a follow up with range results.

Well, to be honest, to me it looks like an abortion. Maybe something from the movie "Alien vs. Predator", or some other science fiction movie. (I just like classic wood stocks.)

I am all for wood stocks, but I also like to keep my collection varied and unique. And for the price, the 10/22 is an ideal project gun. Guns to me are alot more than just home defense and range time. Its my hobby. I like the DIY side to customizing. I would say it definitely looks like an abortion, compared to how it started. But I learned alot doing it, and now I have a pretty unique plinker in my collection. And should I decide, I can throw it back in the factory stock in about two and a half minutes.

As long as the overall length is above the federal limit, you are good.

I would recommend the Jbunting one over the muzzlelite one though. Here's a pic of mine (I don't remember if I ever threw them up on LIF)



Not sure if I'm gunna run this or my M1 carbine one in the .22 match in March.

+1... I never liked the look of this bullpup stock but I have to admit it looks much better with the handle removed. If I ever pick up a beater this might be a fun project. nice work.

Thanks guys. It is dead accurate. I shoot steel plates with it and I could probably make music with different sized plates.
