The stock came pre-painted from Fred's, so I can't take credit for it. This is how all his synthetic stocks were.

The paint you guys use on the metal, is that regular spray paint (meaning non gun metal special paint).

I used regular camo krylon paint from Walmart on mine. It's held up for 2 years now except on the rubber grip which is why I bought an Od green grip for my gun.

Yes. I wipe the gun down with windex to clean it. Using 400 grit wet sandpaper I scuff the surface. The "primer" coat I use is high temp BBQ paint. I spray it with that and then dry it with a heat gun. I scuff it again with 400 grit wet sandpaper using windex/soap mixture. The next step I wipe it down with straight windex using a clean rag and making it clean. I then hit it with a air hose to blow off any dust or moisture in tight spots. The final coat is the regular Krylon spray paint. I've had no problems so far. The nice part is if you get a small scuff you just give it a quick touch up with the spray can.

Does gelcoat count?

This one is hard to see at night......and impossible to find in a stack of bowling balls from 1985. That's a 250 yard target.

It does OK as far as I'm concerned.
It uses ten round magazines and I don't think anyone sells larger ones for it.
I have about ten of them - a few years back they sold them in Wmart and when they stopped carrying them, they went on clearance for something like $5, so I checked in every store I could and picked up a bunch for cheap.

It's light, so nice for kids to shoot.
I'm not much of a long range, or accuracy freak, so I can't comment on that, or how it compares to other .22 rifles.

It shoots Federal bulk pack (550 rd box) just fine, but I have had problems with either Winchester, or Remington - I forget which - seems like one round in every mag or two wouldn't fire.

I don't know what they cost now, but a few years ago they would go on sale at Dick's for $89/$99 at Christmas.
If you don't need a tricked out 10/22, it's hard to beat the price for a plinking rifle.

That's interesting. Looks sort of "SKS-ish".

I'm not familiar - time to Google...
