Carbine bug

It seems I have been bitten!!! Yeah I know...

I bought the Hi-Point 45 ACP carbine and love it. I recently went to the local toy stores, you know: Bass Pro Shop, Gander Mountain, Cabelas, to do some shopping. I have no intention of buying anything at any of these stores; my money goes to the LGS when I am ready to buy. Anyway, I found some aftermarket stocks (Archangel) that looked pretty nice: in fact, they were SWEET!

The more I looked at them, I began to realize that I do not own a 22 rifle that is mine. Sure I have my Grand-dad's Ithaca 72, but that was handed down to me. It got me to thinking, and looking at the 10/22 carbine.

I think it might be about time to get one. If I do it right, I can do a mild build and a wild build... This might be fun, but I have to figure out what is more important... guns or getting the bike running.

Spring is a long way away...

Well...it is cold out in the garage. And your wife probably would frown on working on the bike in the kitchen. So 10/22 project sounds like a great alternative.
Go for it!

Don't buy a 10/22! They are addictive and soon you will have half a dozen. Stop while you are still able to stop.

Come, now, 303, half a dozen would only be a mild case, right?

Seriously, though, from my experience doing mods on the Charger, I can tell you that going down that 1022 mod road is a real money pit. You will never get your money back should you decide to sell a modded up 1022.

Like buying Henrys and CZ's aren't a money pit. At my age I don't care what they are worth. As long as they put a smile on my face they are priceless.

To make matters worse, I stopped at the LGS today just to see what they have and what is sitting on the counter, but both of the new Chargers for about the same price as what I am looking to spend for the 10/22 build I am considering!

That is what I am thinking as a Wild build... cut down to just barely legal length and the original stock modified to make it similar to a Charger.

Heck, those new Chargers are even less expensive than the original Chargers, so I'd just grab one of them. Like 303, said, you'll probably end up with more than one 1022, anyway.

TGR has one of the coolest Charger builds I've seen.

You could be the first new model Charger owner in this group. The bragging rights would be yours.

Brian, the gauntlet has been thrown. We'll be expecting a range report on the new Charger any day, now.

I gave it some serious consideration... thankfully, when I went back both were already sold!
