He’ll Never Sell It – Vintage Winchester .410 Bore Shotgun

Custom 10/22® Build

Satisfying Dad & Son Weekend Project

Custom 10/22® Build

A while back, I set out to build a target 10/22® from parts. Next to the AR-15 platform, the versatile Ruger® 10/22® is as close to “Adult Legos” as you can get, at least when building your own rifle! What initially was going to start with a (hopefully) “cheap” donor rifle changed to buying a Brownells BRN-22™ Stripped Railed Receiver and building from scratch. With the purchase of a Green Mountain 18″ fluted barrel, a Ruger® factory bolt, and other items from Brownells, I was well on my way to a completed rifle. It was such a fun project, one my son and I had a blast building on a weekend. We really got a huge feeling of satisfaction from taking a pile of parts and turning it into a working rifle.

He’ll Never Sell It

Vintage Winchester .410 Bore Shotgun

My Uncle Bill taught me to shoot and hunt, and he bought me my first rifle, a Remington 700. He’s the reason I still spend so much time afield. Sadly, he passed a few years back and left me some guns, one of which is this old Winchester .410 bore takedown pump shotgun. It was dirty and needed a new ejector. I quickly remedied both problems, and it’s a fine shooter now. I’ve made it a tradition to hunt squirrels alone every January and think about my memories of Uncle Bill. While waiting for the sun to come up and the squirrels to start rustling, I remember shooting my own rifle for the first time on the hood of his “two-tone truck.” The two tones were, of course, blue and rust! I get at least one meal a year thanks to that old Winchester .410, and this year I hope to also bag a gobbler with it. I found out it’s worth a decent bit of money, but I’d NEVER sell it or bury it in the gun safe. My uncle would want it in the woods, doing what it was meant to do. I have a daughter who is two and a half now. In a few years, I think I’ll break tradition and hunt squirrels with a partner. I’ll certainly tell her stories about Uncle Bill when we go!

Polymer80 / VooDoo Innovations Pistol Build

You Never Forget the First Time!

Polymer80 / VooDoo Innovations Pistol Build

This is my first attempt at a pistol build. I used a Polymer80 frame (Glock® 19 size), a VooDoo Innovations complete slide assembly with a threaded barrel, and Lone Wolf internals and trigger. It can be intimidating to start a project that you have never attempted before, but Brownells has great support and great video instructions to help along the way. I am very happy with how this pistol turned out. It’s given me the confidence now to start more ambitious builds soon!
