Take it to the range and see how it shoots first.

The little ridge left in the barrel channel is one of the easiest things to fix and it is not an issue limited to any one manufacturer. Also, check the torque on the barrel mounting block screws to make sure the torque is uniform. I can't remember what torque setting I used as it has been a long, long time since I did one. One more thing, check the barrel mounting block to make sure it is machined straight. I have seen some that were not true and needed to be squared up, so that even pressure could be achieved when the screws were torqued.

If it's a newer 22 lr 77/22, I believe the barrel/receiver may be threaded rather than using the V block. A quick googling seems to indicate 2009 on is threaded.

Just looked it up and you are correct. Should be easy to tell if it is threaded since it will not have the block.

I just got the rifle back from Ruger 15 minutes ago. Cost: $0.0

Pretty good service I'd say.

YEP!
There now, that didn't take long!!!
Even I can do this much gunsmithing.

The end game was to get the Nodak sights on it because my eyes can't deal with rear leaf sights anymore.
I'll put a nice Leupold 2-7x28mm Ultralight on the rail and I think I'll have something pretty nice.
I might even use a QD mount for the scope.

I decided to add a red dot because even though I can shoot quite nicely with the AR style sights I need my shooting glasses to do it. Nowadays I really need either a red-dot or a scope. Anyway I got a couple of nice Bushnell TRS-25's from Natchez on sale, one of which found its way on to the 10/22.

The TRS-25 DOES co-witness nicely with the NoDak Spud rear aperture and front sight post.
