I suppose this is being done and fairly easily. What are some resources for doing this? I have an extra 10/22 I'd like to convert. Thank you for any info.pak

A 10/22 can go to .172 but not .17HMR. Need the 10/22M for that. Either way a bbl is obviously needed and at a minimum a new bolt handle. i used a ER Shaw bbl and a Magnum Research bolt handle.

This might be worth a shot.

Ask for Coy Getman, he's as up to speed on the 17s as you'll find......helluva nice guy, to.

He helped me out with a bunch of rimfire pressure questions, and all of his advice worked for me.

Don't dismiss a quality re-line, for this job.....they're scary accurate, properly done......and Hammer Forged Chro-Mo will take the beating that a rig like this will inevitably endure.

you can convert a std 10/22 LR to a 10/17 17HRM. Go to www.Rimfirecentral.com and do a search. I got a little lost in what they were doing but it has been done.

I have a shotgun so I have no need for a 30-06.....

There's a barrel and equipment to convert on Auction Arms right now offered by a gunsmith from the northwest US.
