    Re: Yet another 10/22 project

    While the JB Weld was curing, I started on the front picatinney mount. The 10/22 stock has a rounded bottom, I'll need to flatten it out some



    After some work with the file I marked the center line





    Then I drilled the holes and temporarily mounted it, the bolts will be trimmed after I figure out how to use them to secure the barrel shroud as well.



    here it is with both fore and aft grips and the butt stock in place

    That is really cool! Too bad you can't: 1) have an SBR, 2) an auto sear and 3) a can... without running afoul of the NFA.

    Re: Yet another 10/22 project

    I just posted part 3 to my blog (which is lagging behind the posts here)

    http://tincanbandit.blogspot.com/201...ct-part-3.html


    here are some more updates

    I need to shorten the barrel and recrown the muzzle. By law a rifle barrel must be 16" or longer (unless you file with the BATF and get a tax stamp for a Short Barrelled Rifle). The barrel on a standard 10/22 carbine is 18.5", so I will cut 2" off the end.



    after cutting I checked the barrel length (with a cleaning rod in the bore) and we cam out just shy of 16.5"



    Using my dove tail jig, I flied and sanded the end of the barrel so it was smooth and square




    I then used my drill and a ball mill to chamfer the crown




    I then removed the chatter marks with a brass stove bolt and some valve grinding compound



    I stuffed a patch in the end of the bore to keep the valve grinding compound from getting inside.

    Re: Yet another 10/22 project

    I then cleaned the end with some 400 grit sand paper and my thumb....which now sports a blister...



    I noticed that for some reason the barreled receiver fit very tight in this stock, I got out the lamp black and painted the bottom of the lug where the take down screw resides and checked to see if it was making contact. As I suspected it was not. When I pushed on the back of the receiver to get it all the way in, the front would lift up.



    So I broke out the small files and sand paper, it now fits snugly, but easily and no more rocking back and forth.



    Before going further we need to install a pillar for the factory take down screw and then figure out how to anchor the rear of the stock. I had a bunch of these flanged wahers in my parts bin, I used one on the target rifle project and it worked perfect, so I am using one here as well



    I drilled a 23/64" hole down to the stock escutcheon and fitted the washer



    I had to remove some material so it would touch the escutcheon while sitting flush and not raise the action in the stock

    Re: Yet another 10/22 project

    I covered the barre/receiver junction with tape and a liberal coating of car wax to prevent the JB weld from sticking to it



    I mixed up the JB weld and put some under the washer and on top, when the barreled action is clamped it, the excess with squish out and the flanged washer and escutcheon will touch each other, preventing any movement.



    The next day I pulled the the gun apart, there was a few small pieces of tape stuck to the JB weld, but otherwise everything is peachy. The fit is perfect, no rocking fore and aft and it feels rock solid.



    I had planned on using the 10-24 x 2.25" long button head stainless screws to anchor the receiver.

    The screws will go through the rear trigger pin hole which is 3/16".

    3/16" is equal to .1875", a #10 cap screw is .190, slightly larger, which will fit, but will be tight.




    So how do I drill the stock and get the holes lined up perfectly? I found a post on the Rimfire Central forum by Hipshot, he built a jig using a piece of angled aluminum and long 6-48 bolts, screwed into the scope rail holes.

    I bought some #6-48 screws that are 1/2" long, which should be plenty long enough.

    I couldn't find a piece of 90 degree angled aluminum, so I made one. The metal is from the same sheet I plan on using for the side panels.





    I marked and drilled the top holes with a 9/64" drill bit, then drilled the side trigger pin holes with a 3/16" drill bit

    A trial fit with the #10 cap screw



    Then again with the trigger group installed. I drilled the front trigger holes as well, but I don't think I will be using them.

    Re: Yet another 10/22 project

    update time

    I wanted to build a barrel shroud, I looked into buying one, but nothing really fit the size and look that I wanted, So I scrounged around the shop and this is what I found:


    3/4" IPS PVC tubing, it fits over the barrel but isn't so big as to be obtrusive.



    I want to bring it right up to the edge of the receiver, but the old school scope rail hangs over the edge.



    Luckily I had a newer production one that is flush with the receiver.



    I cut the tube to length and notched it for the barrel tennon







    I still need to remove material from the stock so the barrel will be in the center of the tube

    Re: Yet another 10/22 project

    sanding the barrel channel with 60 grit paper wrapped around a small portion of the 3/4" tubing



    I am planning on using these 10-24 bolts and T nuts (on the left)



    While modifying them to fit in the round tube, I screwed up the threaded part....and like a dummy I had only purchased two of them, so I ordered some more



    While I wait for the T nuts to show up, I went on with the building of the building of the shroud. I had these two shrouds that were made for the 10/22 as examples, I think I like the larger holes better.




    Before marking the holes I found the center line and trimmed the tube to length



    I just happen to have the right drill bit that matched the holes in the store bought shroud.

    Re: Yet another 10/22 project

    I then marked and drilled the side holes, in the center of the gap between the top and bottom holes.



    I was not at all happy with the holes, some are oblong, some are not straight, but before starting over I figured I would paint it first. black textured paint has a way of hiding flaws






    ...and I was right, with the black textured paint on the shroud, you have to look hard to find the boo boos

    Back to the T-nuts, I got another set (I bought 8 of them this time....). I flattened out the lock tabs and curved the flange to match the round shroud.



    I then epoxied them in place



    I then ran into a snag, the T-nits were hitting the barrel and causing misalignment, this won't work, I'll have to find another way, maybe attach them to the outside of the shroud?



    After some debate back and forth, I decided to build another shroud, perhaps correct some of the mistakes I made on the first one.



    I then modified another pair of T-Nuts



    I had to route out a recess for the T-Nuts to sit, so they didn't cause misalignment with the barrel/shroud



    After taping up the barrel channel, adding clay to the T-Nut threads and screwed in the picatinney rail bolts, I mixed up some 5-minute epoxy and clamped everything together. We want the T-Nuts to be glued to the shroud in perfect alignment with the holes for the picatinney rail screws



    We have success!







    While the paint was drying on the shroud I shortened the bolts


    After a couple of coats of paint it is ready for prime time

    Re: Yet another 10/22 project

    Blog post update catching up with this thread

    https://tincanbandit.blogspot.com/20...ct-part-5.html


    new update

    As with all my 10/22s I polish the firing pin and extractor. Here are the before and after pictures



    after



    Any respectable tactical weapon cannot have a polished or chrome bolt, so after polishing the bottom of the bolt where it interfaces the hammer, I blued it.



    then reassembled it



    For the trigger group, I am using a late model plastic housing, I'll save the aluminum one that came with this gun for another project.



    I polished the internals and added a lighter weight spring from the KIDD trigger spring kit. See my write up http://tincanbandit.blogspot.com/201...ction-job.html
