The Ruger 10/22 is arguably the most popular rim-fire that is also very easy to modify and upgrade with what is probably the most after-market range of accessories.  I have owned literally dozens of these rifles over the decades, in a wide range of different models and configurations, including the take-down (one of my favourite), Boyd’s Evolution stocks, SR-22, wooden and synthetic stock models too.

Below: One of my own 10/22’s with Boyd’s Evolution Stock, carbon-fibre barrel that I made, carbon-fibre rifle-scope sun-shield extension and custom silencer finished in splash anodizing, carbon-fibre and over-barrel ported shroud. This is a beautifully accurate and lightweight rifle kit.


Rossi Take-Down - 12

Right: If you like customoized 10/22’s, you might also like my Rossi single shot hammer action rifle, with interchangeable .22lr and .410 center-fire barrels. In the configuration to the right, it could be connected to 4G video link and remote activation from anywhere where there is cell phone reception. However, that would be dangerous, stupid and illegal.

I have restored, modified and silenced so many customer’s 10/22’s – that I have lost count! Just a few examples are below.

Note: Which ammunition – sub-sonic or hypers? Hyper-velocity ammunition will ALWAYS be louder than sub-sonic, because Hypers break the sonic barrier producing a sonic-crack around 5 mtrs in front of the rifle barrel – this will happen even if you have a silencer mounted. One way to over-come this is to fit a full over-barrel silencer AND port the barrel to reduce the velocity of the hyper projectile to sub-sonic speeds, preventing your rifle from ever reaching hyper-velocity again. However, due to the larger amount of ‘powder’ in the hyper-velocity cartridge – even with a ported barrel and full over-barrel silencer, your rifle will still be louder than sub-sonic ammunition because an amount of noise escapes through the bolt/chamber each time the rifle automatically reloads. Most 10/22 cycle perfectly with sub-sonic ammunition, so it makes sense to not port your barrel too aggressively and instead use sub-sonic ammunition which will be nice and quiet but also allow you to use hyper-velocity if desired.

Below: 10/22 Wasp end-mounted muzzle-brake. I started this project with specs supplied by the customer to make a short compact over-barrel silencer, but half-way through he emailed me a photo of a silencer with recessed/concave muzzle, and asked I incorporate both designs into the one unit, basically turning it into a muzzle-brake, as most of the internal suppression chambers were replaced by the recessed muzzle unit. However, it looks mint. John CMMG AR15 .22cal LR - over-barrel silencer - 09

 We worked together to design an over-barrel suppressor to the specs and desired results of the customer. In this case – optimal noise suppression, anodizing to ascent the color(s) of the stock, and with added features of custom external venting muzzle-brake and etched graphix.

Right: Specs from a Ruger Evolution II over-barrel suppressor I designed and built. Standard length Ruger 10/22 barrels.

 I designed this suppressor to be mounted on any threaded barrel (with sight band removed). Once suppressor is mounted on rifle barrel, there are two retainers underneath the suppressor that can be undone, the suppressor body rotated to align graphix at TDC and then re-tightened.
