Modding a 10/22

While the .22 topic is hot Let's have yet another post!

Help me out. I wanna pimp out my Ruger 10/22. So far I have the stock and the scope, and I am now ready to go inside. What would YOU do, within a reasonable budget?

x2 Get stock you can actually use. Next get a decent bull barrel. You can't beat GM for the price to performance ratio. Some sort of trigger mod is a good idea to lessen the pull. Can't tell what scope you have on there but you might want to consider something with a bit more magnification. IMHO anything beyond these simple mods your really not getting a good performance to dollar ratio, but hey if you got it to spend then go wild.

What is wrong with the stock? I like it, its compact and easy as hell to travel with, and I didn't lose any accruacy with it (still hit everything I want to)

I do plan to upgrade the glass...that is a crap Wal-Mart scope that I bought on a whim. I plan to put it on my nephews air rifle for fun once it is replaced.

I guess I am mostly curious why people mod them. I want to do some to see the difference, but the reality is I am a great shot with it the way it is, and it is totally reliable. What are the real world advantages of doing trigger jobs, etc.?

I really doubt that stock gives you a good cheek weld. Answer me this, what kind of 50 yd groups are you shooting in it's current configuration?

Nope, no cheek at all I would say 4-6 inches free shooting. 2-4 if I use a rest for my arm. Keep in mind I am not competing nor am I a sniper I am just out playin with it, and I am not gonna be pissed off if I miss now and then target shootin.

If you ever pulled a tuned trigger next to a factory one, you would better understand. A properly tuned trigger has no creep or drag, and when the set amont of pressure is applied, the hammer falls. That equates to x amount of pressure = bang. There's no jerky movement for what feels like about a quarter of and inch before the gun finally goes off. The factory trigger is usually heavy to boot. (for liability reasons) The factory trigger breaks at six pounds or more, and most folks that I've tuned them for like about three.
If you're content with what you've got, by all means leave it as is. If you plan to burn 1000's of rounds through it, I would recommend a recoil buffered bolt stop pin. Simple and inexpensive upgrade to make the gun last longer.

In about a week or two, I was gonna write a thread on a step by step trigger job using the stock components and some shims.

Well 4-6" free shooting means you couldn't even hit a beer can w/ consistency From what I've read it sounds like you'd just be happy with a trigger job. Then if you get an itch to start taking out squirrels and chipmunks at 100 yds you can always upgrade

And fish makes a good point get a buffer I use this one:

I am going to the range on Sunday....I will get real numbers and see. You are probably right though, it is sounding like I dont NEED anything. I wanna shoot something with a trigger job to see the diff. I am sure I will instantly get hooked and end up spending ton of money when if I just stayed ignorant I would be happy

My 10/22 Adams & Bennet (Green Mountain) Barrel, Fajen Stock, Bolt Buffer, Trigger done by TTshooter on rimfirecentral, and my ugly green carpet. $ Luepold 8.5x25 scope. This gun will put 10 shots under a dime all day long with match ammo.

Mine has a fajen stock, Midland barrel (don't know who made it for them, fluted stainless) and a simons 22x scope.

Very nice shooting rig. I just need a trigger job and it would be great. Somebody easy to send it to that does good work?

The guy that did my trigger http://www.ttshooter.com/ Send him the trigger group and he had it back to me a week or so. A bunch of folks on www.rimfirecentral.com have his trigger jobs and have not heard a single complaint.

I borrowed a 10-22 that I did a trigger job on so i can compare it to a stock trigger. several people have listed companies that will do a great trigger for xxx dollars. There's lots of people that will do a trigger job for an amount of money. I'll try to show an easy way to get a good trigger with minimal expense.

I would love that. I am lookin at stocks and barrels right now. Going this weekend to the Reno gun show and hopefully find a deal on something.

Oh, and I lied. I was barely 25 on the target free hand and about 8-10 inches on a rest needless to say I was pissed off so the .22 is gonna get a few upgrades

8-10inch groups from a rest? at 50yards? no offense, but i dont think its the rifle, though the stock maynot help. I dont know you or how much you really shoot, but i would guess that you are flinching, for whatever reason.

though if your scope is meant for a BB gun, its messed up now and that could be your problem. the recoils are different and it messes up the scope.

IMHO, return it to stock, do the trigger if you want, open sights and put a few hundred rounds through it. hit a can 80% at 50yds, then do your mods.

even plinking isnt fun if you miss most of the time
