So I bought a SS Carbine with a black synthetic stock earlier this year. On sale for $170, how could I resist. I've recently decided I wanted it all black. I was also looking at getting the Nodak Spud sights.

So my question, I came across a brand new collectors series barrel and sights take off. All brand new, never fired, for around $50. Is there any reason the 50th anniversary Collectors series barrel and sights won't fit my carbine reciever? Their cheaper then just the rear Novak spud sights would be. And I would get the blued barrel to boot. Any reason this wouldn't work?

Thanks

Cool, thanks. I figured it should fit without trouble, most 10/22 parts seem to be interchangeable, but just wanted to make sure. Thanks

Another question, I did search but didn't find it. I've seen where others co-witness their Nodak sights with a red dot like a trs-25. But I couldn't find any body mentioning it with the collectors series sights. Anybody know if it will work, they seem lower than the Nodak.

I use a Primary Arms red dot it blocks the Iron sights. The return to zero has been excellent and it is one torx screw. I like the sights have them sighted in at about 70 yards because it is easier for me to hold under on close stuff and I can still shoot out further. Picture so you can tell if we are talking about the same sights. I love my 10/22 It never stays home on range trips. Have fun.

Yep, very similar set up to what I was working toward. Only difference is I'm planning to make it all black. Got the black stock, trigger assembly, blued barrel(close enough), black TRS-25(stealing from my AR15 build), and a black sling. All that's left is a black bolt and having the receiver painted or swapped with a black one. I'll post pics once I get the barrel and sights swapped.

Nodak and the TS rail version are taller than the OEM CSII sights
Well that sucks, but at least I have some back ups if I have to remove the optic

(which are Mini-14 sights).
This is very helpful info. So much easier to search for "Mini-14 sights" than "50th Collectors Series second release sights". In fact if I had known that in the beginning, I would probably have been able to find what I needed to know with the search. Thank you

Kidd makes a black bolt. You will have a nice rifle when done buy some ammo try cci sv.
Yep, I saw that, and considered it till I saw the price. Really nice piece, but it cost almost as much as the rifle did. I'll figure out something later, probably focus on the receiver first. Does anybody make a steel receiver?

Here's the before pic of what it looked like before. Everyone has seen a stock 10/22 before.

And here it is after I installed the new blue barrel, sights, and the TRS-25. I'm liking it so far. Sling is still in the mail. Later I'll paint or swap the receiver.

Nice looking rifle, but wouldn't it have been easier to just put a black stock on a blued barrel and action to start with?

You are absolutely correct, and I say the same thing every time I mess with it. But here in vegas, 10/22s were listing in the mid $300s, even peaking @ $450 at the height of the stupidity. In fact I had given up on getting a 10/22 a few years back because of the prices they were going for here. So when I found a new one on sale for $170, I jumped on it. Stainless Steal carbines were the only model they were selling. When it's all done, I'll have enough spare parts to build a second rifle for my wife or son. The way I sell it to myself, is the new barrel, and sights(front and rear) are cheaper than just the Nodak Spuds rear NDS-26 which I had been planning to put on the rifle before I found these. So in the end, I'm actually coming out cheaper (so far! ).
