Question Ideas for T6:NEED ADVICE!

I have a stock full camo 10/22 i just got recently. I have done some researching and have decided I really want the Tapco T6 stock in OD Green. But i have many questions. And have decided to ask the experts.
1. Is it reliable and sturdy?
2. should I get the heavy barrel version and invest in a bull barrel?
3. money IS a factor.
4.would it even look good with a camo triggerguard and if i keep the standard barrel, its camo too.
5. what all accesories shoul i get once i buy one?

thanks guys

1. I don't have that stock, but I've seen them and they seem to be OK
2. If you are thinking of getting a Bull Barrel sometime in the future, do it now or when you will be getting one, you'll also be getting another stock.
3. I got the Green Mountain SS version for just over $100.00. (Not fluted) I love it and am very pleased. Shoots great and looks good too. I don't know how much of a factor mone is, but that's what you'll pay.
4. That's personel preference. Do what you think looks good.
5. A decent scope. I have a 4-12X50 which I think is a good all around scope. Also make sure you've done something about the trigger. I had mine re-worked by a gunsmith for $40.00. He took it from a 7 1/2 lb pull to a 2 1/2 pull and tightened it up some. This made the biggest difference to me.

1) The T6 is reliable and sturdy! I've had mine almost 6 years, and still love it!
2) Some bull barrels are tapered (as pictured below: Volquartsen Muzzle Weighted barrel in T6 stock), to use in a standard stock
3) T6 stock is around $70-$80, so it won't break you
4) The OD green stock would look fine with the camo, and if you really wanted, you could always paint the stock to match the camo, too
5) If your 10/22 is all stock, I'd suggest a few things:
- Reduce trigger pull
- Auto Bolt Release
- Extended Mag Release
Accessories:
- Bipod
- Good optics:
Red Dot: ATN, $90 or less http://<br /> <br /> http://www.op...ltrasight.html

Scope: Leapers 4-16x50, $100 or less

thanks for the advice guys, great lookin guns quix..i do like the idea of the bipod. my gun is the newer version so it already has a mag release, which i love after shooting my dads 10/22 for a while. i also have a 3-9x30 i believe it is. got it from walmart for only about $60. I like the idea of the trigger job only costing 40 bucks. Did you have to pay for the parts though? Keep the ideas comin guys.

thanks

i shot my .22 quite a bit today and used about 5 types of ammo. the gun was actually pretty unaccurate but i was just shootin off a chair in my pasture. My dad and i plan to go to a range soon and we hope to really test it out there. I found the biggest problem was the trigger. I plan to uprgrade that before i buy a stock
