ATI Ruger 10/22 AR-22 Stock System Review
The Ruger 10/22 Carbine is the fundamental version with a wood stock that normally sells for a street price of less than $250.
This entire ATI 10/22 Stock replacement kit turns your vanilla Ruger 10/22 into a tactical animal, and sells for $189.99. Yeah, it is extremely cool looking and very enjoyable to shoot.
Yes, a number of the attributes are only decorative, such as charging handle, safety lever, the forward assist, and bolt launch. That is fine, as the way in which the system is designed, those functions (barring the forward assist) are all covered by the present buttons and levers on the Ruger 10/22 receiver. The point would be to give a look and feel similar to that of an AR15, making your
10/22 excellent for exercise and training at substantially lower price to shoot.
What makes the ATI kit useful for your Ruger 10/22 are the functions that it includes, for instance, the six-location stock. Like a real AR-kind rifle, the stock is flexible from short to long durations of pull along a faux buffer tube. The stock has a fine (and soft) butt pad to consume whatever recoil your .22 LR load of option has. More to the point, the butt pad functions to provide strong positioning in your shoulder so the rifle does not move around when you are emptying a 25-round magazine at a platoon of hostile hubbard squash. The warts on those things are creepy.
While we are referring to the stock developments, an even more significant feature is the adjustable cheek rest,. It’s possible for you to raise and lower this using a screwdriver. Got low scope rings? Not a problem. Got a high mount? Not a problem. Adapt away. Oh, and the cheek rest, as well has a soft rubber pad on top to take care of your jawbone from the earth-shattering recoil of the .22 LR.
The kit also adds a pistol grip, when you want to use low-cost rounds for training, it’s going to feel like your AR type of rifle. As a nice extra, the pistol grip feels amazing during extended shooting sessions and has a textured rubber backstrap.
Another notable feature in the development group is the forend handle. This really is cool for a few reasons. First, it is entirely free-floated. It does not touch the barrel everywhere and mounts to the receiver. This implies you can mount whatever accessories you need without worry of affecting the efficiency of the barrel in your Ruger 10/22. Additionally, since it is a free-floated assemblage, you may use some aftermarket bull barrel or the conventional barrel.
Additionally, the forend of the kit provides a close-limitless mixture of rail fasteners. Using discretionary railing sections, you may add gear on the side, bottom, or top Not enough for you? Then make use of the angled locations. You’ve got eight sides as the name indicates. In the event that you choose not to add railing sections, the forend gives a comfortable, round support-hand surface.
You will get a full length constant rail from the rear of the receiver to upward close to the muzzle. It measures about 20 inches long, so knock yourself out with scopes, back-up iron sights, red dots, or whatever floats your boat.
You remove the conventional wood or polymer 10/22 stock from your Ruger 10/22 , The core of the ATI conversion kit is comprised of a two-component receiver shroud that encases your present receiver, but will not touch the barrel. The flexible butt stock and pistol grip backing to the shroud.
The aluminum eight-sided forend mounts to the receiver only. It is a surprisingly solid and elegant solution. The full length aluminum railing on top ties everything together.
Now that the AR-22 stock is installed, it is critical that I replace the conventional barrel with a bull barrel that is threaded. A bit more precision and a suppressor will make this the greatest .22 plinker.
