Picked up this little pink Ruger 10-22 awhile back. Got to looking around and found a mint near new Elysium 16 1/2" .920 bull barrel in black.Then I have been watching e-bay for a nice stock, didn't find anything that appealed to me so I kept looking. Went to a gun show the other day and found a Ruger Carbine stock with the barrel band. After looking at it I thought that there appeared to be nice wood grain under all that dark walnut stain they put on these things, so I gave the guy $25.00 for it. When I got home I was anxious to start stripping it and found what appeared to be Curley Maple under the factory finish. WOW what a suprise. Got it completely stripped and sanded and shortened it by cutting the front end off just behing the barrel band and reshaped that and then had to cut a bunch more of the barrel channel down to accept the bull barrel and now that is free floating. Hand rubbed a few coats of Ballistol into the stripped stock . Put it all togeather, installed a bi-pod and topped it with a cheap Simmons 3-9x40 that I had setting around. Now it looks like my little girl gun has been transformed into a big boy gun. And yes it shoots real nice, 25 yds sight in.

You could double what you spent on that OE stock just by selling the barrel. Guys over at RFC are paying right around $60 for the 16.5" Compact barrels, and they sell within hours of being listed.

That pink stock would also bring somewhere near $50.
