If by some chance you have arrived at this website from a link at Tactical22.net or Combatrifle.net you will know that it’s common knowledge that I love the RUGER 10/22 and have been contemplating a DO IT YOURSELF 10/22 project for some time but I have had a difficult time deciding what I wanted to do. My goal was to do something a little different but not insanely expensive. It would be real simple to just order a complete 10/22 from the likes of VOLQUARTSEN for about $1200 and call it a day. The other day I was browsing the Brownells website and I stumbled across a name in guns that I had forgotten about in recent years. That name is Jim Clark of Clark Custom Guns. Jim has a reputation of outstanding work on everything from1911’s, Smith & Wesson model 41’s, Smith & Wesson revolvers, AR-15’s and you guessed it, the RUGER 10/22.
Brownells is offering several variations of CLARK CUSTOM GUNS RUGER 10/22 BARRELED ACTIONS. The differences between the models are as follows:
- Target – Plain, Blue, .920″ Diameter 21.5″ long
- Target – Plain, Stainless .920″ Diameter 21.5″ long
- Target – Fluted, Blue, .920″ Diameter 21.5″ long
- Target – Fluted, Stainless, .920″ Diameter 21.5″ long
- Hunter -Fluted, Blue .920″ Diameter 16″ long
All models feature:
- Heavy Contour Lothar Walther Barrel
- Competition Trigger Job
- Trigger Stop
- Weaver TO9 Scope Base
- 1/2″ Group Size @ 50 Yard Guarantee
At this point I’m leaning towards the TARGET STAINLESS with the FLUTED BARREL. The FLUTING adds $65 to the price but I think the weight reduction will be worth it.
The CLARK CUSTOM GUNS RUGER 10/22 BARRELED ACTION will need to be bedded in a stock. I will need to research those aspects of the project while saving money for the project. Going forward the site will have a static page devoted to this project for visitors to follow along.
