High Tower Armory Ruger 10/22 PS90 Conversion Chassis:
High Tower Armory’s innovative HTA 90/22 stock is now shipping. The stock includes everything needed to make a standard Ruger 10/22 into a P90-ish bullpup and comes in three flavors; black, olive drab, and flat dark earth. The converted 10/22 has a working charging handle and safety in the same places as a real FN P90, but the translucent “magazine” up top is a fake, simply storing spare .22 rounds for looks. You’ll need to insert a regular magazine from underneath, where the actual P90 ejects its spent casings. The HTA 90/22 ejects its empties to the right using the standard 10/22 ejection port, which you can see peeking out from the side of the stock.
Some serious problem solving went into shoehorning the world’s most popular .22LR rifle into a carbon copy of the famous P90 shape without requiring any gunsmithing at all. The quality of the stock and its fittings is very high, unlike some bullpup conversions of the past. The kit comes with a fake silencer/suppressor that mounts on the stock itself and will work with either the standard barrel or Ruger’s optional .920in heavy barrel with no modifications needed. High Tower Armory states that they have had 14 year old kids successfully follow the installation instructions (which is going to make me feel real smart if I get stuck somewhere!).
One word of warning; to meet the overall length requirement of 26 inches and keep the 10/22 a Title 1, non-NFA rifle, you need an 18 inch barrel. Factory Rugers come with an 18.5 inch barrel, but if you’ve cut yours down to 16 inches, the HTA kit is a ticket to SBR city. The black version costs $229.99, and the olive drab and flat dark earth variants run just ten bucks more than that. Of course, you have to provide your own Ruger 10/22 for the stock to fit on. If you love the look and feel of the FN P90 but don’t want to pay the high cost of 5.7×28 ammunition just to plink with, High Tower Armory has all three colors in stock right now.

LIGHTWEIGHT SILENCED 10/22
After being completely thrilled with how our first 10/22 project turned out I decided it was time to start a new project that is 180 degrees different than our BENCHREST TACKDRIVER. This time around I am targeting size, weight and noise.
As of right now as mentioned in an earlier post I’m considering the 10/22 will be based on action/receiver parts from KIDD INNOVATIVE DESIGNS, TACTICAL SOLUTIONS 10/22 VANTAGE RS STOCK, TACTICAL ARMZ VALIANT .22 SILENCER and either a KIDD LIGHTWEIGHT BARREL or TACTICAL SOLUTIONS BARREL SB-X BARREL.
Once I start to accumulate the hardware I will update this post and layout a page similar to the previous 10/22 project. I will also monitor advertised weights versus the actual weights. Stay tuned.
As part of a new project I am looking at some 10/22 upgrades from a company called KIDD INNOVATIVE DESIGN. I do not know much about them or the quality of their products so I am looking for some feedback for a KIDD 10/22 based project. Feel free to reply below.
It took a while for the Nikon scope to become available but now I have it and this project is complete. I will update the Clark Custom Guns Ruger 10/22 project page very soon. Click the picture above to view the image full size.
I had originally specified a LEUPOLD EER RIMFIRE SCOPE for the RUGER 10/22 Tack Driver Project but being a bit on the the pricey side funding for other projects kept the funding for the 10/22 LEUPOLD SCOPE from being realized. As luck would have it NIKON has recognized that there is a huge market for quality RIMFIRE SCOPES at a reasonable price. To that end I decided to give the Nikon ProStaff Rimfire 3-9 x 40 Black Matte Riflescope (BDC 150) a chance.

I settled on the Nikon ProStaff Rimfire 3-9 x 40 Black Matte Riflescope (BDC 150).

WARNE MAXIMA QUICK DETACH SCOPE RINGS
I went with the WARNE MAXIMA QUICK DETACH SCOPE RINGS based on a recommendation from a friend and fellow RUGER 10/22 nut. Scope rings are one of those things that is very difficult t to judge quality on based upon a few internet pictures. It isn’t until you have a set of WARNE MAXIMA SCOPE RINGS in your hand do you appreciate the precision, quality and workmanship that goes into these scope rings.
Timney Triggers’ 10/22 Drop-In Assembly contains a complete trigger assembly, cross-bolt safety, bolt catch and magazine release. The automatic bolt release allows the user to simply pull and release the charging handle to unlock the bolt, with or without the magazine inserted, and the magazine release extends from the front of the assembly to the underside of the trigger guard.
The steel trigger, sear and hammer are wire-EDM cut and heat-treated for durability. The housing is CNC-machined 6061-T6 aluminum and fits into any standard 10/22 stock. For installation, simply remove the two receiver cross pins, remove the old assembly, insert the Drop-In and then reinsert the cross pins. Trigger-pull weight is factory-set at 2 pounds, 12 ounces, with no discernible creep. Price: $180.
