So I spent a pile of money to build a dedicated 22, and then decided I’d rather have a 10/22.
I assembled the PSA upper and lower, bought for the 22, in 5.56, with new Hogue grip kit.
Added a free float handguard and lo-pro gas block. Done. Just need sights or an optic.
I have a small rant for PSA, this being the second lower, and first upper from them.
Use better buffer tubes. These are commercial tubes, but Mil-spec stocks might fit.
Even Hogue, a very tight fitting stock, fits loose. I’m gonna have to replace them.
There’s also a bit of slop in between the uppers and lowers, even when using other brands.
This doesn’t bother me. A little slop is to be expected, but the loose stock drives my crazy.
Anyways, I just left Bud’s before coming here to post. Bought a 10/22 and a 110 round drum.
EDIT: Maybe the buffer tube is Mil-spec. but the threads are flush like on comm-spec.
And maybe it was the Magpul stocks they use that are the reason for it being loose.
The Hogue stock is definitely comm-spec.
