ELITE22™ BILLET PRECISION MACHINED REPLACEMENT 10/22® RECEIVER
In response to customer demand for a high quality target grade precision machined replacement receiver for building a custom 10/22 rifle at an affordable price, serious target shooters, varmint shooters, as well as plinkers can enjoy the advantages of a machined receiver with a solid Picatinny mount that can be built into whatever level of precision is required. Our ELITE22 replacement receiver is loaded with the features that easily separate it from a factory receiver while still being able to use factory parts to complete it.
| 2. CLEAN FROM THE CHAMBER TO THE MUZZLE
|Target shooters have always known that the correct way to clean a rifle is from the chamber and out the muzzle rather than pushing all the dirt from the barrel into the receiver and potentially damaging the barrel crown with the cleaning rod. Our receivers have a 1/4" hole in the rear of the receiver that allows you to put a cleaning rod in the rear of the receiver, then attach the brush and swab the barrel from the chamber to the muzzle without having to remove the barrel (and loose your zero each time). The cleaning access hole is cosmetically covered with a snap in and out plug that blends with the rear of the receiver when installed and that is completely hidden when the receiver is in the stock.
| 3. PICATINNY PRECISON MACHINED RAIL
|The ELITE22 Receiver comes standard with a picatinny rail integrally machined into the receiver. For maximum strength and alignment, it is machined into the receiver as one piece. The integral Picatinny mount is standard rather than the less versatile weaver style rail. The rail is mil-spec to fit popular scopes and accessory optics.

The barrel to receiver fit is critical for the assembly process. If the
barrel is loose in the receiver, when you tighten the V-block screws it
will cause the barrel to droop so that you will never be able to get
the scope dialed in. We plug gauge the receiver barrel hole in each
receiver before shipping to ensure that its within the correct tolerance. The
barrel manufacturers (including our barrels) also hold their barrel shanks often on the larger
end of the tolerance scale to ensure that its not going to be loose in
any receiver that you may put it in.
When you have a
precision receiver that is holding the hole tolerance and a barrel that
is also trying to compensate and be capable of being used in any
receiver with varying hole diameters, then the barrel can be too tight
for the receiver hole which is a common occurrence. The logic is that
its far better for it to be a little too tight so it can be fitted to
the receiver rather than be too loose.
The fitting of the barrel
to the receiver can be accomplished by any one of multiple methods,
depending on what resources you have available. All material should be
removed from the barrel shank since its much easier to get to it and to keep
round. If you don't need to take much off, you can use sandpaper on the
barrel shank until the shank is a light press fit to the receiver. If
more material is required to be removed, you'll have to use a wide flat
file on the barrel shank as you slowly turn the barrel. Usually you
only have to polish off a few .001's so sandpaper is all that's required
and you'll wind up with a perfect barrel to receiver light press fit.
