The only part still ruger on this rifle is the action screws and reciever. Kidd bolt, volquartsen barrel, extended bolt handle. Volquartsen trigger. Extended mag release. Is there any chassis for the 10 22 that is any good?
MDT used to make a LSS-22 chassis for the 10/22 but for some reason they don't make them any more. I called them not too long ago for my 10/22 build to see if they had any left but they had just sold all of them to someone out of the country. My next choice was the Titan which turned out to be a very nice stock.
I use a Victor Titan and it is very nice but in order to get it's full functionality you need a Kidd receiver as well so you can use the rear tang on the Victor stock. Then you'll have 2 screws on the action to really lock things up.
The Kidd receiver is top notch but you can have your Ruger receiver machined for the rear hold down. Per my gunsmith, he actually machines them very slightly different depending on if you are going with the Kidd rear hold down or the Victor rear hold down-Norcal911
This is a chassis I've considered dropping my KIDD into. It's currently in a Victor Titan and I have no complaints about it, but this chassis does look like it would be a great fit, especially for PRS/NRL type matches...
I too have put tons of money in Ruger 10/22's and they shoot well, but they always reminfd me of a book a friend keeps referencing: "How I made on 10/22 shoot well for under $10,000". 'Nuf said. I'd rather have a factory accurate gun than one I sink money into and still have a mediocre rifle.
