TONY KIDD 22 aka KIDD Innovative Design Rimfire World Project. The .22 rifle is aptly named  “KIDD 10 22 Lightweight Precision Rifle”.  This KIDD 10 22 Semi Automatic Rifle features a SWS SPECTRE II  Suppressor and a Thumbhole Stock



Several years ago I was at a local gun shop and on the used rack was a Ruger 10/22 mounted in n interesting looking stock. Naturally I had to check it out. I was immediately taken by how comfortable and light this particular 10 22 rifle is. I knew I had to do something similar at some point. Fast forward to either Christmas or my birthday in 2014 and as a gift my girl bought me a Tactical Solutions Laminated Vantage Stock in the Crimson color.

KIDD INNOVATIVE DESIGN | KIDD 22 Classic 10 22 Receiver

The KIDD 22 LR Classic Receiver is an aftermarket receiver. It is a slip-fit design with industry standard dimensions. The KIDD 10 22 Classic is designed with the easy access rear cleaning hole and interchangeable low scope base with varying minute of angle (MOA) available.  Zero MOA is great for 50 yards and under 20 MOA is helpful for 150 yards and over.  When purchased, it will come with a scope base of your choice (zero, 10, or 20 degree). It is designed to drop into a stock inlet for the Ruger 10/22® without any modification.

This receiver is milled out from 6061 T6 aluminum and anodized either black or clear. We have provided the option to build this receiver with receiver pins, bolt buffer, or rear tang if desired.  The receiver is machined to utilize our threaded receiver pins.  Our upgraded bolt buffer will cushion the felt recoil of the bolt.  The optional rear tang will increase your stability of the rifle but require some custom inletting to your stock.   (See rear tang installation instruction below) We also have the additional option of a second scope base due to the interchangeable nature of this base you may want to purchase two.  So for instance, if you were going to change from shooting 25 yards to 150 yards and your scope needed some help with that adjustment, you could switch out the base.  Both the scope base and rear tangs have mating designs to the receiver so that our rifles have great rigidity as well as some customization aspects.

It comes standard in silver or black anodized aluminum with our redesigned auto bolt release and interchangeable magazine lever system.
Our single stage trigger guard is CNC machined from billet to Tony’s specifications.  Always following the KIDD Quality of closely held tolerances enabling the cleanest breaking single stage in the industry. How is this different from our two stage? This single stage more closely matched the traditional function of the factory trigger except with a refined feel and adjustability. Our two stage has a travel stage where the trigger blade moves rearward for about a 1/4 of an inch before it comes to the breaking stage. Because of this travel stage our two stage trigger is able to be reduced in weight to only 6 ounces versus the lowest weight for our single stage is 1 1/2 pounds.

Tactical Solutions Laminated Vantage RS Stock 10 22

As mentioned at the top of the page the Tactical Solutions Laminated Vantage Stock is the reason this project was considered.

The strong metal pillar solves the age-old problem of metal-to-wood fitting and the accuracy issues common when using pure wood stocks.

Tactical Solutions carefully engineered the Vantage RS™ specifically to work with the barrel’s harmonics to effectively shoot off a bench or provide a superior platform for off-hand shooting.

The comb and forend heights were designed to give the shooter a superior line of sight for rifle scopes.

KIDD 22 10/22 Parts

Harris 1A2-BR HBR Bipod

I’m quite fussy with bipods. My .22’s always get Harris Bipods. They are the best quality and performance for the price. Can also utilize them elsewhere in the arsenal. For this .22 I chose the Harris 1A2-BR HBR Bipod. The Harris 1A2-BR HBR Bipod if “fixed” meaning it does not swivel. “BR” is the “Bench Rest” model. The leg length is 6″-9″. The bipod attaches to the sling QD stud.

SWR Spectre II Suppressor

SWR Spectre II Silencer

SWR Spectre II Silencer

The SWR Spectre II Suppressor was recommended by a friend  in the industry. When he talks I listen. It turned out to be the best .22 silencer available at the time. It comes are part for ease of cleaning. Well no silencer is easy to clean.

  • Caliber Rating : .17 HMR, .22 LR, .22 MAG, 5.7×28 FN
  • Thread Pitch: 1/2×28
  • Color Black
  • Length 5.98″
  • Diameter Diameter 1.0″
  • Weight 6.8 oz
  • Finish Black Oxide
  • Full-Auto Rated Full-Auto Rated
  • Manufacturer SilencerCo
  • Build Material 17-4 Stainless Steel, 316L Stainless Steel


With its construction of ultra high performance and tough Stainless Steel, the SilencerCo (previously SWR) Spectre II allows weapon fire to go virtually unnoticed. It is not only super tough, but also one of the quietest 22 suppressor known to man. With the Spectre II, users will also enjoy its multi-caliber versatility.


The Spectre II has a unique CTA baffle design for easy disassembly and is user serviceable, which is very important for any .22 lr silencer. Because the .22 lr round is not copper jacketed, molten lead and carbon debris will explode into the silencer when the projectile exits the muzzle. After some time it is possible for a .22 suppressor to fill completely with lead and become heavy and ineffective. To avoid this issue .22 silencers must be able to be disassembled for cleaning and regularly maintained. Most .22 silencers on the market can be disassembled for cleaning, however they require cleaning every 50 to 200 rounds or often times they will fuse together and they are unable to come apart. When the lead and carbon debris adhere to the inner wall of the silencer tube and fill the spaces between the baffles and the tube, there is simply too much build up of fouling and lead to remove the tube from most .22 lr silencers on the market. The Spectre II has the unique CTA baffle design that keeps the carbon and lead debris from reaching the silencer tube allowing it to be disassembled easily.

Warne Scope Mounts Low Matte Quick Detach Rings (1-Inch) “Warne Maxima Quick Detach Rings 200LM”

Warne Maxima Quick Detach Rings 200LM Used on the Tony Kidd 22 Rifle

Warne Maxima Quick Detach Rings 200LM are my go to for any scope where Im not utilizing a one piece mount. Using the Warne Maxima on the Kidd Innovative Design 22 is a no brainer.

The Maxima QD Rings sport the unique Warne indexable lever system which allows the user to remove the optics from the rifle then reattach it without the loss of zero, as well as allowing the location of the lever to be indexed once the rings are affixed to the bases. After the levers are tightened, simply pull out on the lever, turn it to the desired location then let it snap into place. When used on the all steel Warne Maxima Bases, we guarantee return to zero accuracy when removing and reattaching the optic. Also unique to the industry, the Maxima QD Rings have a square stainless steel recoil control key. This ensures a positive recoil engagement surface across the entire face of the recoil slot in the base. The recoil control key guarantees that the rings will not shift or move under fierce recoil and also protects against peening or swaging when mounted on aluminum bases.
The finished rings are assembled with four quality Torx style T-15 socket cap screws for strength and durability.
