    After shooting a few upgraded 10/22's I decided I wanted to upgrade my own. With other projects going on I couldn't do all the upgrades I wanted, and a few I added along the way, at once, so it's taken a couple months and I am still deciding what I want to upgrade to for a stock.

    Here is what I started with, good little shooter, but you know, it can always be better.

    To start with the upgrades I ordered a Vortex 3-9x40 crossfire scope, some Warne scope rings, extended mag release and a Ruger BX Trigger.

    Here it is with those installed:

    Next upgrades, and what I had been drooling over, a Volquartsen carbon fiber barrel. Since I don't have a suppressor as yet I ordered a Volquartsen forward blow compensator. Also from Volquartsen I got their bolt tune up kit, extended bolt handle, automatic bolt release and recoil buffer. I also got some Vortex Defender flip caps for the scope.

    I had the bipod already and put it on:

    The Magpul Hunter X-22 and X-22 Backpacker stocks look pretty neat.

    I like what you've done so far.

    I just got it all together earlier, so now that the rain has stopped I will be sighting it in and checking out how she shoots.

    The forend came with the barrel (freefloat) so I want the stock to fit the forend. I have been looking and probably go with the Adaptive Tactical TK22.

    And thank you, it's much lighter now, that's for sure.:laughing:

    Ah I missed you had put a VQ barrel on there.

    I have a TD I just put a red dot on. Not sure what else I'm going to do with it at this point. Think I might want to start tweaking it for steel challenge .

    Yeah, I didn't have the money for the barrel at the time I bought the scope, but it actually was the first thing I wanted after looking at and reading about it.

    At first I didn't want to turn a $300 rifle into a $1,000 rifle, but once you start it's hard to stop.

    It's about the journey, right?

    Having never shot with the upgraded trigger, does it make that much of a difference?
