Gun Porn: QD Scope and Outback II-D suppressor on the 10/22 Takedown Tactical

Last week I showed off my new toy and had a decision to make about mounting my optics. Regular readers know that I bought a BSA Sweet .22 mounted in a PEPR QD a while back for my M&P15-22, but it didn’t quite work out. I also have a Nikon P-223 3×32 BDC Carbine in some $20 QD rings*

What I decided to do was take the cheapo QD rings off the P-223 scope and put them on the Sweet .22. Then I bought some Burris XTR Rings for the P-223 on Farmdad’s recommendation. More on that later, as I’m playing musical gun parts with pretty much all my rifles right now.

So here’s what I ended up with:

And here’s what it looks like all broken down:

My next step is figuring out a way to put a bipod on it. I have this one, which came with a mounting plate for the rifle stock, but since apparently this stock is hollow I’m not sure how that’s all going to work out. This replacement barrel band gives me mixed feelings, and there’s a reviewer who says it doesn’t work with the takedown model.

One more thing of note: The threading on the 10/22 is a wee bit too long for the Gemtech Outback II-D…

Gemtech’s specs say that the internal threading on the Outback II-D is 0.400″ so I’ll need to use a spacer in order to avoid damaging the first baffle.

*despite what the description says, those are Weaver rings, not Picatinny.

    That right there reminds me of the assassins kit in pretty much every action movie in the 80s. All you need is some super-unpractical wire stock and you’d be gtg.
