The Liberty Training Rifle

In preparation for my appleseed marksmanship class this weekend, I pieced together what is known as a Liberty Training Rifle. This gives me a cheap military style battle rifle, that shoots really cheap ammo. Start with a Ruger 10/22 with a wood stock, add a set of adjustable aperture sites, and a M1907 style sling. Here is what I wound up with.

Detail of the front sling swivel. If you can find the Mil-Spec version of the Uncle Mike’s swivels, they are worth the few extra dollars. They are very beefy.


Plastic trigger guard and extended magazine release lever are standard these days.
