    I think he means that your goal to shoot under a 1" group at 100 yds is a stretch. You may get 2" or so if conditions are right but it mostly falls on the shooter, not the gun. Trigger control is key. If I was to build another one, I would focous soley on the trigger. The factory barell will usually shoot tighter than an average person can anyway. And as mentioned previously NEVER USE A DREMEL ON YOUR TRIGGER PARTS to remove material, they remove material to fast. If you don't have stones or files you can use a high grit sand paper then after you have finished if you feel the need you can use a felt polishing wheel only to clean up the parts with your Dremel

    GM barrels as a rule, are prolly the very best value out there (IMO). One more time I'm gonna ask, is this gun for hunting, or strictly a bench gun? I understand you want it accurate, but for what purpose? Difficult, (and I swear I'm not trying to be an ass here) but, if your asking this question, it's impossible, for you at this time, (unless your the next Olympic superstar).

    yeah a 2" group is fine. i just didn't know how accurate a .22lr can be at 100 yards.

    A 22lr can be very accurate. Provided the right barrel/trigger, right glass, and correct ammo, (good .22 ammo can run as high as $10.00 a box of 50). What type of scope are you thinking?

    That's prolly a pretty fair scope for small game, tin can plinking, but it is not a 100yd bench gun scope.

    If it's solely a bench gun you need something in the 16-24 power range, something with a AO, (adjustable objective). I suggest spending the most money you can afford on glass. Good rule of thumb is, spend the same on glass as you spend on the gun.

    Yep, the 209 is before your barrel, ($150ish) and the Kidd trigger group (over $200.00) and what ever stock you go with, (at least $100.00 prolly more). So now your sitting around $600.00, you can get a good piece of glass for that.

    You can certainly go cheaper. With he P22 and a box stock 10/22 you can have a great combo that will perform well for what .22 was meant for, it's just not gonna be a 100yd walnut shooter. They way I went was that way, then upgraded as I could, next thing I knew, I had enough parts for another rifle, and then another. I still have a couple of barrel and stocks laying around leftover from projects.

    here is a list of what i want for my gun.

    black/blued bull barrel. (preferably threaded and fluted)
    auto-bolt release
    and OD green Houge stock.

    do you have any extra black bull barrels laying around?

    No bulls, I've only bought one. Shoots very good, but too heavy to carry. My sporter barreled gun shoots just as well after I found the ammo it likes. Did you see the pic of mine in the link I posted?
