Grim Reaper 10/22
Well, since I haven't been here in a while, I need to add this…
I had been looking for a 10/22 Takedown in a camo version with blued barrel for a while, but they're kinda hard to find.
After looking at what was available one day this past summer at the LGS, I decided to get a black one with blued barrel and then wrap it in Grim Reaper skin...sorta matches my CORE15.
Picked the rifle up the first weekend of August and the skin came in the following Friday.
So, the next day, I went up to the LGS and applied it to the rifle.
It's not hard to do except around any curves and being the perfectionist, it took me longer than if I had been doing someone else's firearm.
Though, I'd still be the perfectionist with someone else's - just the way I am.
I may have a job, if anyone comes in and wants something done to their firearm...
There are a few places, but not a lot, where I had to let the perfectionist go or I'd never get it done. :shrug:
I suppose they won't be noticeable to someone not looking for them.
Here are a few pictures...
I also picked up a new trigger for it before Christmas…installed it the week after - it is a more better improvement over the stock trigger.

Good work, I am not familiar with the wraps. I'll have to look them up.
Nice takedown model. Is the flash suppressor removable?
And I have seen the new BX trigger but you are the first person I have heard from who has one. I have been thinking about sending my trigger group to Brimstone. I guess I am waiting to see if someone on the Ruger Forum gets a BX and can compare it to Brimstone's work.

Great job on the wrap. I've never done one. How do you like the new trigger? I ordered one but its on back-order.
