The Fab Defense 10/22 Chassis: Embracing Rimfire
After years of essentially ignoring rimfire firearms, about halfway through 2015 I found myself coming around to the idea of a cheap plentiful round, and embraced more shooting for the sake of fun. Particularly in Canada where rimfire gets the double whammy of legal short barrels and regular magazine capacity. So I wound up with a little .22 Bersa handgun, and decided to put together a 10/22 rifle. I’d seen the various archangel stocks and things like that, but they didn’t quite grab me. Until the new Fab Defense stocks started showing up.
Part of why I like this stock on the 10/22 is that it’s not trying to convince me it’s an AR-15. I’ve seen lots of “tactical” rimfire stocks that just pay lipservice to black rifle aesthetics. I don’t care about that. I do care about a decent grip, an adjustable cheek riser, and a little bit of pic-rail.
Hence: I like this little guy. I wish they’d had the fixed stock version a little sooner, as I had to JB weld the folding mechanism on this one. Still worth it for what the American’s would call an SBR.
I’ll check the math again, but I’m pretty sure I’m safely under $600 for this lil guy.
That’s a factory standard receiver with an 11″ Dlask barrel and an HC3R mag I got from my secret sniper during the summer. Its a blast to shoot!
