I machined a 10-22 receiver from an aluminum block several years ago... I added a second action screw behind the trigger assembly and threaded the front for a screw in heavy barrel. I then installed a 1 inch diameter Anschutz barrel, and put it in a target style stock. It shoots good, and is very accurate.

No testing yet, but I could use a bull barrel

I also left the top of the receiver something like 1/4 inch thicker (I can't remember exactly) to make the receiver more rigid. I machined it to look similar to a coffin lid.

The barrel was one of a lot of Anschutz 'test barrels' that Numrich had acquired and were selling for @ $55.00 if I remember correctly.

They were oversize and had features machined in them to mount them in a testing jig of some sort... I cut it off to 20 inches and turned it down to 1 inch, and turned and threaded the tenon to 3/4 inch.

They haven't made the 10/22 magnums for about 15 yrs. The thing about the magnums is that the breech block was made from solid tungsten and weighed 15 oz, where the standard 10/22 breech block weighs 5 oz.

Looks good, are you finishing it as a charger? Out of curiosity, why did you build it in 2 halves?

That's very cool! I never thought of making a 10/22 receiver split down the middle.

I've been going back and forth on making a 10/22 from scratch just as a "Tack driver". With companies like Tactical Solutions, it's rough to decide if I can make one as good or better. Of course, the answer there might be "make it and see".

I would recommend you look for a smaller diameter barrel. Less weight to support and they are easier to tune. Something in the .800 or .850 diameter.

The barrel can changed, to abide different state laws.
I made the split receiver just to do something different
Take care

This was a prototype. I just wanted to make sure of the fit
and all dimensions correct on the inside.
Once that was accomplished , the outside can have many variations.
It’s only a hobby
