    10/22 build parts...looking for recommendations

    Not looking to build an Olympic competition level rifle but, i would like it to be very light weight with a bull barrel profile.

    any recommendations for parts and where to get them?

    Whistle Pig barrels are bull and lightweight. 1 oz per inch. I’m not sure what they have or are making right now though. Rimfire stuff hard to find right now

    Green mountain makes nice barrels. I have experience with the bull barrel and their tapered barrel and while the fluted bull barrel is a very nice looking barrel it’s too heavy for me unless you are target shooting. I prefer the tapered barrel as I squirrel hunt and this is much better suited for that. It shoots way better than me and has sent many a squirrel to acorn heaven. All pea shooter parts are hard to find at this point in history.

    As others have said, carbon fiber is the way to go if you want a light weight gun. And wood is usually lighter than composite for a stock.
    These barrels (above) are turned down Green Mountain barrels wrapped in carbon fiber. I prefer the Volquartsen barrels when less than $300 but finding one at the moment is gonna be tough unless you wanna boot up some extra change on eBay. Best Iíve had is proof Research carbon fiber barrels but they are expensive.

    Here is a volquartsen on eBay for $320 but Iíd hurry.
    These guys have some neat stuff to offer as well.

    There are plain stocks modified for bull barrels up to nearly 1 inch diameter all over the place without going benchrest pro and staying lightweight, but you can also modify a birch wood factory stock pretty easy.
    Do yourself a favor and go with a BX trigger! They are ready to drop in as a cassette. You can get them in the $50ís range if you look and they are very hard to beat. Iíve seen people spend $200-300 on the volquartsen parts and sweat out a trigger and shoot one of mine and get pretty pissed.
    Have fun!

    For me, Tandemkross and Volquartsen are my go to for 10/22 parts. I have used these company's for my 2 Steel Challenge builds.

    Other great company I have dealt with in the past for 10/22 and 22/45.

    Just to throw another option into the mix, unless you are specifically looking to build I'd take a look at the Bergara BXR Carbon. I'm sure a full custom setup could perform better but I'm super happy with mine for my needs and it's a solid little performer at $599ish.

    An awesome trigger, at a great price, with an issue.
