I bought the full rifle with the Greyboe stock and feel like it's a good deal as a whole rifle when you break the parts down. The stock was a pleasant surprise. I hadn't heard a whole lot about the renegade stock, but it's every bit as solid as some of the bigger names out there. I was even thinking about throwing one of my Bighorns in there for some coyote calling. It also comes with bottom metal that is pretty decent as well. I have tried mine in several different stocks (Rock Solid, AICS 2.0, KRG X-Ray, Manners MCS) just to see how it would work. They all worked just fine. I've never been happier with a gun purchase than this one. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
Awesome to hear. I was looking at the complete as a good deal, plus less headache.

I'll be watching this thread. Going to try and time the build around my anticipated arrival home. Did that with a Larue and it bit me in ass, lead times tripled on me and still had to wait almost a year. I'll be calling up there in the next month if all goes well.
 
I drank the Koolaid.... mmm and it so good hahaha

Dang if that ain't one of the sweetest 22LR's I've seen! I had a JAE700 once and sold it, wish I would have kept it now. This new Vudoo V-22 has my interest for sure! Was going to focus on a new large frame AR build, but this would be much cheaper to shoot!
 
Tuner on Vudoo

I had Vudoo send 3 barreled actions to Eley for ammo lot testing. Once completed, I had one re-tested with a tuner installed. Results were modestly improved once additional weight was added. Dan from Killough Shooting Sports (Eley test facility) said that short, heavy barrels with heavy shank diameter are not generally as responsive to tuning.

I wanted to try it and glad I did. I would not recommend it as cost effective but a fun experiment and now I know.

Hey, that's good info! Thanks!
 
I received my barreled action on Tuesday. I had a Manners T4a sitting in wait. I finally got it put together yesterday and hit the range today with my shooting buddy. I ran several ammo's through it and found the SK rifle match was the best. I love this setup. I ran almost 100 rounds through it with not one problem. Thanks Paul and Cole I appreciate the quality of the rifle as well as all your help. 5 rounds at 50 Meters.

What brand and model scope is that on your rifle?
Thanks. John

What the heck kind of reach you got?!? I run LRA bipods and there's no way I'd be able to reach the lock-knob if a had them as far out as you've got your's (on that red rifle).

So many awesome combo's of Vudoo's Its amazing everyone is doing so many cool things.
I have a new build coming together in a Manners PRS1; Tom is now inletting specifically for the V-22 with the short ejection port. This is for those of you that have no plans of swapping multiple barreled actions in and out of one stock.

The V22 in a PRS1 is my ultimate goal, but for now the Greyboe will do... So how are the lefties looking?
I'm looking forward to the Vudoo Rimfire Series East (Granby) this Spring, using the PRS1 build. Lefties are being built now and will be shipping this month.

I’m really interested in this rifle. I’m not into the various centerfire competitions, so the compatibility aspect is not a factor for me. I would be very happy with a version utilizing the box magazine without the surround to make it duplicate centerfire magazines. Are there any plans for a version like that?
 
RocketJ, if you’re asking if it might have the ability to feed from a smaller magazine that could be within a BDL system, I too would be interested to know. It would make for some cleaner lines for those of us who don’t need/want an AICS pattern detachable.

I'm of the same mind set, especially when shooting from the standing position. Holding the rifle along the flat base is critical to stability and a flush mag would be perfect. Besides, 5 rounds is usually what I prefer anyway. I'll be getting one of these, donning a Cadex Field Tactical stock!
 
My point is, the reason I bought the Vudoo is because that mag is sticking out there. I've got lots of other .22's like what you are describing. A poll would be interesting as to why people bought a Vudoo. Most people on the hide shoot ,or are interested in PRS type shooting. I'm would guess 70 percent bought it as a PRS trainer. Others are guys who love accurate .22s and want another flavor. The Vudoo is getting very little traction on Accurateshooter so I think my numbers might be close. The breakthrough of the Vudoo is replicating a Rem 700 footprint. Many people who have posted about theirs put it in the same stock as their centerfire ( i did). I asked for the heaviest, longest barrel they had to replicate the weight of my centerfire. Would 16 in. be easier to shoot unsupported, absolutely. Sorry for being a jerk with the Ruger comment, but don't mess with perfection.
 
There are lots of reasons to buy a Vudoo, the mag sticking out is quite low on my list. There are many times I've used my 5 round, flush mag. I don't see your point that a flush mag is not equal to a PRS setup. I too plan on sticking it inside the same chassis as my match rig, but what's that got do to with anything. Some guys, like me, don't like a folding stock for their match rifles, some do. So does that make one or the other wrong? No. Neither does the flexibility of having a flush mag at times.
 
Maybe I can see both sides of this coin - I had jelrod1 convert both of my CMP 40Xs to repeaters using Mike Bush's magazines, and then gave in to temptation & bought a V22 action to barrel & put into a Manners T4A stock. Not too hard to see what I was aiming for there.

But when I saw an exquisite sporter built on an original factory 40X sporter action on RFC, it made my juices flow, just thinking about having something like that rifle, but using a V22 action with a flush 5rd mag.

Can we not have our cake & eat it too? Maybe not in this case, unless Mike, Paul, & the rest of the crew could come up with a smaller mag that would be held solidly in the mag well so it could still present rounds to be fed as smoothly as the current AICS-form 10rd mags do. I have no suggestions, as it's hard for me to imagine how to go about it.
 
I have seen photos of that 40x sporter too. Don’t know what it would cost to make a similar one using the Vudoo action, assuming a suitable clip, but it would be money well spent and would fulfill my lifelong dream of a perfect .22 sporter.
 

Wow! Doesn't that really screw with possible barricade or other support options?

The long extended full length rails is not for sitting at the range behind the gun and allowing you to tighten the cant while you shoot F-class or paper. It is allows you to quickly choose the any position with the bipod for small platforms like a barrel or ultra stable. Usually it is going to be adjusted super quickly as you move from position to position. Pic rails just can't offer the speed and infinite positions. They also let the bipod become a barricade stop either in front or behind because of the infinite positions.

I've been running standard 300 and 250 MM dovetails. Area 419's look interesting. I recently received a super slim 10" MLoc bolt on, from Henderson Precision. Todd mentioned that they might be shipping a Keymod shortly. My hope is that the Keymod will be 10" to fit perfectly on the AX.
