Any issues with cheek weld or is the height about the same as the original irons? Was using a red dot sight with that stock and couldn't get a good cheek weld which is why I eventually abandoned that configuration.

I noticed no differnce in how I held the rifle or in my cheek weld on the stock...and it was very comfortable for me (for a folding stock which is not as comfortable regardless of the sights as a factory stock IMHO). Now that said I am 5 11 with longish arms and a large head....so perhaps this is a factor of my physical build?

YMMV :lol:

One of my 10-22s has tech sights and a BC folder I only use the sights with stock folded out. I like the stock and the sights.

Thanks much, that's the kind of info I needed. Yeah, I never shoot the 10/22 with the stock folded. But I do like the compactness of the package for transport. That was another problem with the POS red dot I was running - it was really too big for what it was; I want this to be a super-compact utility rifle that lends itself to accurate shooting.

I have a .22 Ruger fitted with like accessory I enjoy knocking cans out of the trail and whacking spinners diameter around 6inch range around 10 yds. Hip shooting me brethren puts up prize $$ or worthy items of value. Ammo, foodstuffs both already cooked and good to hit the grill, tools etc. We have a blast, camp a night or 2 try to out-cook the others. I usually get recognized burgers and REAL fries. Or sausages, peppers and sweet onion sizzles and slathered with quality mustard in the toasted poppy seed buns served up with sliced pickled red-hot jalapenos and steak fries fresh out of the deep frier atop the fire. Sometime a propane grill is hauled in makes life easier.
Excuse my rolling on comrades.

I too am a connaisseur of tin can shooting so much so I have mouse loads for my Winchester and milsurp rifles and of course black powder guns. Sometimes I have been also been known to go after 12oz varmints that hang out in packs of twelve.:biggrin:

Update:

Got the Tech Sights in (went with the TSR 100) and they're fine. Plenty of support from the stock for a good cheek weld, good sight picture. Need to pick up a second set for a rifle I'm going to rebuild into a dedicated iron sight trainer.

The Tech Sights are great. I had the original ones with the aluminum front sight which broke off. I called Tech Sights and they told me that they now use a steel front sight with the set screw relocated. I ordered the new steel sight and it works great and is more rugged. Their sights are great and make target acquisition much faster and they sit higher than the factory sights which I like better.

I also had an adapter made to use an AR collapsible stock so my children could use the 10/22 as they were growing up.

I just looked at the Tech Sights web page and they now offer more aperture sight options for the 10/22 which have a Picatinny rail. One uses the original front sight and the other has the higher sight with a rail.

The Tech Sights are great. I prefer the aperture sight to open sights and I get a longer sight radius with them.
Mine had the aluminum front sight which broke. I contacted Tech Sights and I ordered the new steel one and it works well and is more rugged. I tried the Williams peep sight but it was fragile and I bent it. The Tech Sights sit higher and that makes them easier to see using the factory cheek weld.

Glad it worked out for you and the BC folder. I just got a Samson 10/22 folding stock (B-TM) for my tech-sight equipped rifle. Comb height works great for the tech sights, but this stock would be too high for factory irons.
