But MBtGE prefers the M4gery style adjustable butt stocks on his numerous 10/22s and just gave me a folding Choate stock, so what the heck. Now my 10/22 is backpack size.
Here is one issue: The swivels I mounted on the original wooden stock, and the Choate's are narrower than full size .mil swivels. The only sling that fits it is a knock off .mil-standard leather job I have that is pretty tired, and even that is still pretty wide. I want to be able to sling up properly. What are my options for old school slings in a new school narrow offerings? Maybe an M1 Carbine style is narrower, but not having one in my hands to compare to... Plus I don't know if you can sling up with those. The ones you can sling up look either too slick or too wide. Anyone out there solve this problem?
If I give up on slinging up then the sling is pretty much just a way to tote the rifle and there are plenty of options out there for that.
The only disadvantage is a pretty tight fit in the mag well. It makes removing the empty, flush-mounted 10 round mags problematic. Not an issue with larger mags.
