Cerakoted Ruger 1022 project

Post by MRagu » Sat Apr 11, 2015 3:38 pm

My daughter wanted her own .22 and one that shoots well so I built up a Ruger 1022 with a Kidd threaded barrel, Tacticool Stock with LOP adjuster, tricked trigger group and jeweled bolt. It has all of the usual upgrades at bolt handle and mag release. The Nikon Buckmaster is a bit of an overkill but I had it so I figured I would put it to use.

She wanted it to look a little different ( no way she was going with a girlie color) so we had it aged in Cerakote. The colors are burnt bronze and black. The Cerakote work was done by Scott at SL Gunworks in Tampa. I highly recommend him as he had fast turnaround and he is very reasonably priced. Can't wait to take it out shooting with her. Here is the project:

That looks amazing. Very different, in a good way.
