    D19 used to be the choice place. Out in the foothills and the mountain and paradise....

    Pieces and tools slowly starting to come together, as I wait for S&P to get more teardown receivers and chassis...

    Better pic, I hope, with latest arrivals... looks like I'm gonna have to write off most of the case's standard foam.


    Lid organizer: Tandemkross Mag Toolkit, Real Avid Field Guide, Real Avid 10/22 Micro Tool.

    Back: SBA3 brace, two Leapers MNT-RSQD403's for mounting brace/stock tubes, MTM ammo-and-tools case.

    Front: Alangator Trimag coupler, Real Avid Bore Boss cleaner, FAB Defense PTK-M and VTS-M AFG and thumbrest, Pete's Pillars and Tandemkross FCG/receiver/boltstop pins, Ruger OEM oprod, NoDak Spud NDS-23 front and BRN-26 rear sights.

    My thinking here is to stack the receiver/6" barrel and 16" barrel one-atop-other closest to the hinge, the two backends in front of that with the 10" barrel on top of them and optics between, then mags/ammo/tools across the front closest to the handle.

    Sounds like a fun project!
    I got a Ruger 10/22 charger a couple of days ago and bought the copper custom 1913 adapter, but have not decided on a brace yet.
    I will be following your build. Have fun!

    I could take the easy way out and just buy a factory 4924 or 4935, but by the time I was done the only OEM pieces left would be the chassis, triggerpack, receiver and bolt. (Besides, the more work someone else does for me the less growth opportunity that leaves me to build new skills for myself.) I'm looking at the Farrowtech brace adapter now because plastic is more cheek-friendly on hot or cold days.

    Brace is going to be a bit Rube Goldberg--I went with the A3 body because I got a better price and it allowed me more room to work around it in the case, alternate was the A4. This is going onto a Midwest sidefold tube with storage compartment mounted on one of those Leapers QD optic risers, then I'm going to throw in SB's length-of-pull limiters to keep it below 13.5". (I fully expect to lose position 5 in addition to the normal #6; no biggie because I have short arms and usually use pistol brace and rifle stock alike as either an "elbow stabilizer" or just a rear-end counterweight anyway.)

    Mine is a 4923 model. Iím not doing much to it, just a muzzle break, brace, and a red dot.
    What you are doing is way more fun and Iím sure will come out way nicer.
    Btw, are you building 3 chargers or a couple of chassis with interchangeable barrels?

    One chassis, three interchangeable barrels, two interchangeable backends. Plan is have my pro smith mike the barrel collets as they come in and lathe them to "least common denominator."

    Difficult decision: M4 Waffle or SOPMOD? I like the extra storage of the SOPMOD, but space and weight are at a premium in any Briefcase Kit build. Also, any suggestions on a plinker-toy scope?

    Definitely a fun project!
    My opinion is a red dot or a fixed low powered scope. I believe Leupold makes 2x and 4x scopes.

    My thinking is a Bushnell TRS25 with Arms Unlimited QD lever for "large pistol" mode, question is more fixed LP for rifle. I know BSA made some specialized for .22's, and I'm thinking an Aero cantilever dual-QD-lever mount.

    So, this pic is from an eBay listing for the Midwest 8" handguard but other than the lack of iron sights and rear rail it's pretty much my "mental picture" for the 10" barrel setup.


    Have a bid in on a Charger chassis that closes tomorrow to hopefully get things a little more un-stuck.
