It’s not fully complete yet. It’s a highly modified Ruger takedown 10/22 Charger (10" barrel), today with a folding arm brace. But after ATF sends me my tax stamp to turn it into a SBR it’ll have a folding adjustable VLTOR stock. It also has a HK 3 lug adapter for a Ghost-M can. In it’s most compact form none of it’s 3 parts (including can) is longer than 12". Also in it’s final form the tax stamp(s) to prove it’s legal will be in the hollow and sealed (non functional) buffer tube. I have yet to shoot it for accuracy because I won’t affix a rifle scope to it, but with a red dot at 40 yards it appears that it will be a tack driver.
I got the idea for it from a MAC video (link far below), but I can’t use the arm braced version for Steel Challenge competition, hence the SBR version that I’m building. That will be OK with the rules.
It’s use? Walks in the forest, and popping vermin or small game quietly while being small and lightweight. OK, and I also intend to use it for Steel Challenge, without the can of course so that the e-timer has some noise to work with. For competition it’ll basically be a shoulder stocked handgun with a red dot sight. It should be fast on steel and fast and quiet on zombie craniums should the Walking Dead happen. Add the can at the end of the barrel for weight and it should have decent “holding” qualities.
If PostImage was working I could post pix.
My other go to .22 is a Browning T-bolt that I bought from the Weisbaden Rod & Gun club in '71 when I was stationed in West Germany. It’s quite accurate and just a sweet gun. Currently if I have something that needs dispatching with .22 LR it’s what I grab. The SBR has to be finished and fired for accuracy and I just can’t do that with it yet, so the T-Bolt remains the go-to .22 at this time.
Sorry, I couldn’t find the video on Full30 so I linked to it on (arrgh!) you tube.
