I wanted a Precision Chassis MTR but couldn't find one plus I didn't really like the color of it. I have seen guys on youtube shooting eggs at 300 yards with these and at $700 it is cheaper than modifying my CZ 455 I have now. I learned my lesson on my $900.00 10/22, it is cheaper to just buy a better gun in the first place...I was eyeballing those at one time too. That should be a very nice shooting LR .22. Good luck with it!

Wow. Sorry to hear that.The sad truth is when I was a kid my 6 year old cousin was killed by a 22 from around a mile away.
check out 10/22® and Ruger® 10/22® aftermarket trigger, barrel and parts by KIDD Innovative Design if looking to upgrade 10/22 its a very good choice IMOI definitely want to start upgrading my 10/22 to be more accurate farther down range. I’m sure I’ll get some good ideas from this thread
This is the way.10/22 gets you only so far. There are better platforms out there such as CZ and bolt guns. Ask cmore
The 10/22 platform has limitations due to how the barrel mounts, cleaning is done through muzzle so damaging the crown is a concern, auto loading a 22LR can often damage the bullet by deforming or shaving lead off the projectile affecting long range potential.10/22 gets you only so far.

@PaulGT2164 Is it practical? Not in a useful sense most likely but it seems a few in this thread including myself have a few bucks invested in 10/22’s or bolt guns. If you want to talk long range and how they perform let’s pick a distance and find out. Otherwise whats the point of spending $1k on a silly 10/22…. other than mine is fun as hell to shoot and makes squirrel hunting too easy.
That was fast!Can't wait to try this thing out and figure out what ammo it likes.

No snark at all. Pretty sure I said if you like your 10/22, and like spending money on it - good for you. Pretty sure I even said I wasn't "dissing" the 10/22. You seem to be taking some sort of defensive stance at the statement I made (and a few others) that there are better platforms for "precision" .22LR than the 10/22 (and face it, there is.) I stated a few posts ago next time I am at BA I will post some pics at my 200 yard groups as that is the furthest I have access to with paper targets (everything else is steel past 200.)@PaulGT2164 It might be my imagination or maybe the odd day I had but I get kind of a snarky sense from your last 2 posts regarding my last 2 posts….Whatever floats your boat dude. If you think I believe that anyone on this board including me is going to shoot at or could hit a squirrel that burried itself in the top of a pine tree at 400 yards, you haven’t read enough of my posts to understand my sense of humor, but again whatever dude.
Yeah there is a definite fun factor to a custom built gun no matter the caliber, mine happens to be an 80% that I machined completely myself and was my first one. Yeah I spent near a grand on it, I got exactly what I wanted out of it and yeah I’m more than happy with it.
Sooooo back to the talk of long range shooting with a 22lr. Im down to give it a go on whatever size target at whatever distance
