The Ruger, she is done!

....Well, almost. Just need to add a sling.
No, I didn't find my camera battery charger, worst luck. I took this pic with my iPhone and emailed it to myself. Came out quite nicely, though, for a camera phone.
So there she sits, all pretty and stuff... shoots as nice as she looks, too. So here's what I've done:
-Green Mountain barrel
-Fajen stock (which I had to mount sling swivel screws onto. Front, not so bad; the rear - well, it could have been a little straighter. We'll just leave it at that)
-8-32x44 mil-dot scope with adjustable objective - a TruGlo I picked up from Natchez Shooters Supply for about $65 (hey, I'm a cheap bastard. What can I say? It works so far, and if it ever craps out on me, well then I'm out $65)
-Harris bi pod knock-off from Walmart (see above)
Oh, and a custom trigger setup from Hawktech.
All in all, I'm into this for about $450, I think, including the price of the original rifle. I'm pretty happy with how she turned out.

Nice-lookin' little target shooter. I haven't fancied up my 10/22 since I take it out hunting quite a bit in the outdoors.

Yeah, I wouldn't want to hunt with this one - but I do have a Savage 22 boltie that I can take when I'm after rabbits and such.
