Laminated Target Custom
#1000 -"Golden Anniversary"

This custom rifle is a "milestone" rifle for me as it is my 1,000th custom 10/22 I have built. It also comes in conjunction with Ruger's 50th anniversary of the 10/22 which was released in 1964. To say that this rifle is "special" is an understatement!

It was listed for sale nationally on several websites so that anyone would have the opportunity to purchase this special build. A long time customer and collector of my customs - C. Lake from FL - purchased it. Made me a damn happy camper for him to get it!

I had two ways to go with this one - either a totally "off-the-wall", out of the box weapon OR a more conventional design that would appeal more to the masses. Over the past six months I have queried collectors of my rifles and prior customers concerning which direction to go. The decision was to stay more conventional in design but add enough one-off parts and features to the build to keep it truly unique.

Because the 50th anniversary is the "Golden" anniversary, the theme and title of this rifle pays homage to that. The refinished series #1 receiver and milled, jeweled/etched bolt are from my friend Red Mist Maker.


The features of this rifle are:
Ruger rare and collectible 1st series ('64-'70) receiver refinished; varmint/sporter thumb-hole stock from Boyd's; 18" .920 match threaded barrel from WhistlePig; custom forward blow compensator/stabilizer by WPGBC; Heier/Red Mist custom logo extended bolt handle; Heier Super-Match trigger assembly with Volquartsen, Power Custom & Heier internals, QualTac lever magazine release and Tactical Inc. billet trigger; custom billet scope base by QualTac; Leupold billet rings; Mueller 4.5-14x40AO target scope with 3" sun shade; Heier Turcite-X buffer; Plano SE hard case; one ten round factory magazine.

The custom gold anodizing on this rifle was performed by my friends at Gun Candy. The custom gold color and polished finish were done flawlessly for this project. The billet bolt handle, compensator, mag release, trigger and sun shade were all done in this custom gold finish. The receiver is also engraved with my company name and the number 1,000. This is the first and only rifle to be so engraved in over 47 years. As with all my customs it comes with a signed and dated spec sheet and a written guarantee that it will never be duplicated.


The rifle weighs a mere 6 lbs. 4 oz., has a 13 3/4" LOP and is 38 1/4" in total length. The balance point is exactly at the magazine well and the "head's-up" shooting position is absolutely excellent.

Bad - Ass Carbine II

This tactical is a full-tilt-boogey version of my "Bad-Ass" series of 10/22 custom tacticals that I have been building for years. All are completely unique and use many one-off custom parts available nowhere else.

I used all the best available parts and technology from Nordic, Whistle Pig, Tactical Inc., ATI, Yankee Hill, New Century, Panther, Pro-Mag and of course Mike "The Machinist" of AlumaliteUSA.

From the daytime green laser to the ultra-light swivel bi-pod to the quick detach (lever throw) military optic - this was designed to be a complete weapon system. Terrific fire-power, fantastic accuracy, Ruger 10/22 reliability and cheap ammo are what it is about.

This weapon weighs a mere 69 oz. ( 4 lb. 5 oz.) with magazine. Talk about the ultimate "seat/coach" weapon!

This started as a New 2011 Ruger silver/grey Charger pistol. To this I have changed or added: Match 10" aluminum threaded Whistle Pig barrel (1/2x28tpi); custom full ported thread-on stabilization module; Tactical Inc. custom Rebel target stock with longer forend and vents; Heier (2 lb.) Match trigger assembly with Volquartsen internals, auto bolt release, OT stop on trigger and Heier/QualTac lever magazine release; polished target bolt trued and head-spaced; OS extended skeleton charging handle from Tactical Inc.; AIM Sport 2-7x32 long eye relief handgun scope and Weaver style rings.

This "critter-getter" was bought by D. Rebo of WA.

T-Rex Target/Varmint

This custom rifle was built for Ryan Ruffato of right here in the beautiful Gallatin Valley. It was Ryan's first custom rifle of any kind and he was very specific about what he was after. I used his "old reliable" 10/22 as the base for the build.I used the T-Rex ambidextrous stock; Whistle Pig threaded silver barrel; match bolt upgrade; custom billet logo extended bolt handle; Super-Match trigger job with blue billet trigger & mag release; billet base & rings with Tru-Glo lighted scope; bi-pod and one-off custom 'gill ported' muzzle brake.The targets Ryan showed me from break-in were exceptional. His plans are to get as many ground squirrels (we call them Gophers) as possible with it. Thanks much Ryan and good luck on your hunting trip up north!
Two-Tone Varmint Special

This full custom silver & black varmint special was designed primarily for the serious varmint shooter that occasionally goes to the range. The trigger assembly on this one is a two-stage, 3lb.,smooth pull system that was built for that "finger-on-trigger" style of shooting used in varmint hunting where early fires with semi-autos are all too common with a target trigger.

This rifle is sound suppressor ready and loaded with "one-off" custom features.

This one-of-a-kind custom consists of the following: New Ruger receiver assembly (smooth "new" black finish); Boyd's Blaster thumbhole stock in the black/grey laminate finished in satin; Whistle Pig match .920 aluminum threaded barrel with flutes - this barrel is suppressor ready; custom aluminum thread protector/comp from Mike at AlumaliteUSA; polished target bolt assembly with Heier/Red Mist "one-off" custom knurled extended bolt handle with logo; Heier Super-Match trigger assembly with billet custom trigger, polished auto bolt release, Volquartsen internals and a custom extended mag release that matches the handle; raised billet scope base from Power Custom; billet rings; Tru-Glo 6-24X44AO lighted reticule scope; swivel studs and the "piesta resistance" - a one-off custom Diamondback Rattlesnake sling.

Michael F. of Ohio is the proud new owner of this select rifle. Shoot straight - shoot safely Mike!

"King Copper"

This full custom "Theme" rifle was purchased by C. Tolliver of MD - a serious collector of guns.

I designed and built this theme rifle because in 43+ years of doing this I have never seen a rifle with a "Copper" inspired  theme. What you see is the exact result of my initial vision for this project. Many of the parts were custom made for this specific project.

Some of the features are:  10 coat hand oil finished stock design from Richard's Microfit completely customized and hand finished by me; billet Elite receiver from Tactical Inc.; very rare new match barrel from Whistle Pig; fully customized and detailed Heier Custom Super-Match trigger assembly; custom Heier match bolt assembly with first ever "Prism" jeweling by Red Mist Maker along with a one-off billet & copper colored logo Heier/Red Mist bolt handle; custom matched combat rings and a Tru-Glo 6-24x44AO target scope; custom detailed black to copper fade steel lip magazine.

This project took months from the design to finished weapon.

"Texas Habenero T-Rex"

This custom was built for K. Jones of the great state of Texas. He wanted a rifle with a fit for a full sized adult that could be used for both target shooting and varmint hunting. He wanted the "old-school" look of one of my octagon barrels incorporated into the design. The results are what you see.

This is technically one of my "New-Old School" series rifles because it incorporates the finest of modern parts with the old-school look of the octagon barrel.

Bench Rest Target

This rifle was built for precision shooting and excellent handling.

The top end features of this rifle are:
New stripped and hand finished Ruger factory receiver in satin; Volquartsen TG-2000 target trigger assembly; Shooter's Ridge excellent 18" steel fluted .920 match barrel with recessed target crown; jeweled match bolt assembly with custom billet Ruger logo extended handle (1 of 1); Bell & Carlson Odyssey target competition stock with fully adjustable butt, cheek rest and recessed aluminum front rail; HD billet Weaver style lock-down scope base and billet rings; Tru-Glo target scope - 6-24x44AO with two sun shades - this is the good one folks, with ultra-fine target X-hairs, target turrets, super clear optics and it is paralax adjustable from 15 yards to infinity.

 I built this rifle for both target & varmint duty. The scope is not a "cheapie" 3-9 center-fire scope used by some other builders. This is a serious scope for a serious rimfire. It features the finest glass available, super-fine X-hairs found only on high end optics, target turrets and two sun shades.

This rifle was designed to be super accurate, medium weight and with a great balance point. The very accurate Whistle Pig barrel was used to give the look and weight reduction needed for this project.

This one is owned by the Ducheneauxs of the great state of MS.

"New - Old School" - Varmint

This custom target/varmint rifle weighs 7 lbs. and has fantastic balance, fit and feel. The balance point is at the magazine and the ergonomics of the Anshutz style grip are superb.

The features of this version of my "New-Old School" series are: New Ruger receiver; hardened and jeweled match bolt; Heier/Red Mist custom billet logo extended handle; Boyd's limited edition tactical target stock; my design 20" match octagon Whistle Pig barrel; Super-Match trigger assembly with Volquartsen internals, Tactical Solutions lever magazine release & custom trigger with an auto bolt release; Turcite - X buffer; Power Custom raised billet scope base;  quick detach (no tool) billet rings; Tru-Glo target series 6 - 24 x 50 AO lighted target scope - parallax adjustable from 15 yards with fine mil-dot reticule.

The scope is a top notch optic featuring 1/8MOA adjustment with true tactical turrets, paralax adjustable from 15 yards and two sunshades (3" & 4.5"). I use these scopes on my personal rifles.

The stock is a Boyd's limited edition target / tactical hardwood stock featuring one of the best Anshutz grips I have felt in many years, textured finish, 1/2" rubber pad and 3 studs. The LOP is 13.75 and the cheek weld is super. All the "elements" came together on this rifle.

The trigger pulls at slightly over 2 1/2 lbs and is very smooth and crisp. It has a "two-stage" feel and is perfect for the finger-on-trigger style of shooting that we varmint hunters employ.

I call these "New-Old School" because they blend the very best in modern parts and technology with that "old school" look of the octagon barrel. This series that I designed and have been building since 2005 has become my most requested build.

This one is owned by E. Smith of TX.

"Bitten"

This full custom "Theme Rifle" was designed to be totally unique, accurate and just plain fun.

It is owned by E.Smith of Texas.

For this project I took a standard Ruger hardwood stock & enlarged the barrel channel to accomodate a .920 barrel. Mel Barboza of MI covered the stock with several varieties of Rattlesnake skins (Western Diamondback and Timber) along with some Python accents. I then added an extended butt pad and swivel studs. Snake skin is extremely durable and tough. With normal use it will outlast the rifle.

For the barreled action I used: match threaded barrel by Whistle Pig with stainless steel JP Enterprises brake; new series Ruger receiver; custom one-off "diamond prism" match bolt assembly by Heier and Chuck of Red Mist Maker; custom Heier/Red Mist logo bolt handle; Heier Super-Match trigger assembly with Volquartsen, Tactical Solutions and Ballistic Specialties parts; raised billet scope base from Power Custom; billet combat rings; Mueller APV target scope (4.5-14x40AO).

Thanks for your support Eric and enjoy one of the most unique "theme" rifles to date.

Micro-Fit Two Tone

This full custom target/varmint rifle was made using numerous "one-off" features.

The stock is a fully custom hand fitted and finished Richard's Micro-Fit with 10 coats of hand rubbed Tru-Oil. The barrel is a Whistle Pig match aluminum threaded one with flutes. The custom weighted comp (fake suppressor) AND a custom muzzle brake are from Mike at AlumaliteUSA.  The receiver is the new 2011 Ruger smooth finish item. The match bolt is jeweled and has a custom Heier/Red Mist large knurled billet logo bolt handle. The Heier Super-Match trigger assembly features Volquartsen match internals, Ballistic Specialties billet trigger, Heier/TSL billet lever magazine release and automatic bolt release. A Power Custom raised billet scope base gets the scope into proper "heads-up" position; A Tru-Glo 6-24X44AO target scope with fine X-hairs and shade is used. This scope is paralax adjustable from 15 yards and is perfect for very small targets.

The comp was designed to mimic the real silencer that has been ordered for this weapon. It gives him the look and feel of the real one so that he can shoot and enjoy the rifle while he waits for the Feds to process his paperwork.

I built this rifle for Larry Stephenson of Livingston, MT. Larry is the longtime state treasurer for the Friends of The NRA and had been unsuccessful at winning one of the numerous raffle rifles I have made for the "Friends" over the years. This year he decided to have one built and with his wife's blessing and support got it for his/her anniversary. Way to go Cathy!

This very special piece will be busy keeping the ground squirrels (gophers) under control and shredding targets at the range.

Bad - Ass Tactical V

This weapon system would be a great varmint shooter and an excellent home defense weapon. The optics are first rate, new to the market and as versatile as any tactical sights made.

Two-tone Mach 2

This very lightweight .17 Mach 2 was purchased by Jared Sisk of MO. He said he “was a sucker for all unusual and different” guns. This one certainly fits that description from the Volquartsen billet receiver and carbon fiber barrel to the awesome looking and fitting Predator Raptor stock. As a first time .17 Mach 2 shooter - Jared loves the 100+ yard performance of this little hot-rod round.

He’s also getting his little 8 year old daughter into shooting and is putting together a custom .22 for her using some parts he bought from me. This is one lucky young girl with a great dad. I'm betting it won't be too many years and his Mach 2 will be hers & he'll be needing another one!

Thanks Jared and keep up the good work with the young ones - all of shooting sports will benefit.

 

Mach 2 Two-Tone Varmint Pistol

This highly modified and customized Ruger Charger pistol was built to bridge the gap between rifle and pistol. This is the latest in my own series of Charger Pistol extreme upgrades. It is chambered in the .17 HM2 (Mach 2) that shoots extremely flat and averages 2,100 fps from a 17" barrel.

I designed this pistol to be used as a field carry weapon that would be primarily used from the prone or "laying" shooting positions but it can be shot standing with one or two hands. The grip is absolutely outstanding in shape and ergonomics and has been fitted for a medium to large hand. Got tree or ground squirrel problems? You won't for long with this bad-boy!

Everything from the stock to the barrel to the comp is "one-off" custom.

It will be taking up residence in MO. Varmints best look out! Thanks Dennis.

Bad – Ass AR-22

This full – tilt tactical was built for a customer in Florida. He has two sons in the military proudly serving their country. He wanted a full on tactical 10/22 that would have the features they are familiar with and that they could shoot inexpensively when they got home.

I designed and built this weapon system to provide super fire-power, terrific accuracy and be a versatile “home defense” weapon if needed. Thank you Mr. “M” and sons and thank you all for your service to our country!

This is pretty much the one that started it all in the AR style tactical 10/22 "wars". Copied by Ruger years later as their SR-22 and copied by many others for it's design, features and performance.

“Down South” Tactical

This rifle was built for Steve Lyons of  South Carolina. He wanted a very accurate and practical tactical weapon with great firepower, was easy to handle and cheap to shoot. What better weapon to meet those needs than a well modified custom 10/22 tactical rifle. From the M-4 retractable stock to the Panther adjustable grip to the floated forend – this rifle is all business and comfort. The lighted mil-dot scope makes for easy target acquisition and the Whistle Pig match threaded barrel hits the target. The custom compensator is from Mike “The Machinist” and was built for this project. The adjustable steel lip magazine from Tactical Inc. will allow Steve to deliver .22 rounds long after the plastic mags have quit. Save some squirrels for the rest of your friends, Steve – and thanks much!

We DuraCoated all the metal parts. He say's that rings are next. This is truly a "one-of-a-kind" rifle that anyone should be proud of. Good job Perry!

Charger Pistol

M-11 conversion

This is a custom proto-type conversion for the Ruger Charger pistol. It was designed to have that Mac-11 look and feel. This one is being used as the test “mule” for some very cool and unique forend assemblies to be used with different length heavy match threaded barrels. The best machinist I know is helping me develop some one-off parts for the Charger that will turn this great little pistol into completely awesome tactical pistols. Versatility, uniqueness and firepower are what I am after with this one.

The one in the picture is a two-tone featuring a custom threaded 8” barrel; custom comp from Mike “The Machinist” of Alumalite USA; rare silver heads-up holo sight with 4 different reticles and a Steel Lip magazine.

Stay "tuned" and keep watching the site. I should have some kits available in December ’08. Contact me with any questions.

"M-1 Carbine" 10/22

This is a quality upgrade for the 10/22 that has the old school look of one of the USA's most revered battle rifle the M-1 Carbine. This one was sold to James M. from IL.

This rifle features: New Ruger 10/22 carbine; custom stock set with surplus sling & oiler; Tech Sight TRS100 & TSR200 fully adjustable dual-aperature military peep sights; Tactical Inc. custom steel milled bolt handle; Heier match satin hardened bolt assembly; Heier match trigger assembly (2.75 lb.) with Volquartsen internals; automatic bolt release;  Turcite-X bolt buffer.

To this custom rifle I added a custom machined short Weaver optic base to work in conjunction with the open sights and a New Century military red dot optic and intergal red laser. This set-up has a single lever quick release base.

This rifle would be an ideal candidate for the "Appleseed" target shooters who do not use scopes or for those who do reactive targets and use an optic. Either way - this weapon has it all.
Camo Blaster - customer build

This custom target & varmint rifle was built by good customer Larry D. of Maryland.

Larry purchased two boxes of super parts to add to his 10/22 and turn it into a custom tack driver. I sent him a Shaw helical fluted match barrel; Forest Camo Boyd's Blaster stock; my Super-Match trigger assembly with Volquartsen internals, Tactical Solutions lever mag release and Power Custom titanium target trigger; custom raised base & Weaver rings; custom Heier/Red Mist billet logo extended bolt handle; Turcite -X buffer and a Tru-Glo 6-24x44AO lighted scope.

Way to go Larry! Shoot straight - shoot safely.

Customer Target

Customer Adam Van Haaften writes:
I have pretty much modded every area of my gun except the bolt and the receiver.  Bell and Carlson Anschutz stock, 20 inch Green Mountain barrel, Volquartsen bolt handle, and ejector, Tac Sol buffer and v block.  One piece scope mount and a BSA sweet 22 scope and a Harris bipod.  Of course, your trigger job & trigger.  Thanks for the help and I am including a pic if you wanted to use it on your site.
 
Great job Adam - next time you'll have to use one of my custom logo handles instead of the catalog piece!
OD and Black Tactical

This two-tone tactical rifle was designed for the shooter who uses an AR-15 with carry handle and wants a .22 LR weapon with the same fit & feel. It was built with the same name brand parts used on many ARs but with the venerable Ruger 10/22 as it's base.

This one features as always a threaded Whistle Pig aluminum match barrel with one-off custom comp/can by AlumaliteUSA and: Nordic frame with accessory parts from DPMS, Hogue, TDI, Tactical Inc., Volquartsen, New Century, Olympic & more.

This is one great squirrel gun or home defense weapon.

Clubs

Some custom 10/22 pistols built for a club that does a lot of rimfire silhouette shooting. The top one was in the .17 HM2 (Mach 2) caliber.

The owner wasn’t allowed to compete in silhouette shoots with it but said it almost single-handedly cleared his orchard of squirrels!
Tactical 10/22s

Some custom Tactical 10/22s for home defense or killing varmints.

Features include: metal frames; custom accessories; many one-off prototypes; match triggers & barrels; custom grips and much more.

These are extremely accurate Tactical weapons built to the same standards as competition rifles.
Desert Devil

Customer Eric Champlain sent the following specs on a custom tactical he built using parts from here and elsewhere:

M4 style 10/22 barrel with x 28 threaded muzzle; Nordic Components 10/22 AR-22 Receiver Chassis; Mako Group two piece quad rail hand guard with Magpul XTM Rail Panels (Black & Dark Flat Earth); Magpul Angled Forward Grip; Magpul MOE Carbine stock with buffer tube and a Magpul Cheek Riser (Flat Dark Earth); Magpul MAID Rifle Grip (Flat Dark Earth); Magpul Gen-2 Front and Rear flip-up iron sights (Flat Dark Earth); DPMS Flash Hider; Truglo Dual Reticle/Dual Color Red Dot Sight mounted to a Quick Release Rail System; and a Black Dog Machine 50 Round Drum Magazine.
