My 30 year old, factory stock, 10/22 carbine still shoots like that and I'm always amazed given how many rounds have been put through it.

My regular 10/22 I worked over the stock, removed the front barrel band, powercustom target hammer and charging handle. Volquartsen extractor. It stove pipes 1 in 20 rounds of EVERYBODY’S stuff. Except CCI. Never had an ejection or feed problem in over 500rnds of CCI through it (over 1000? Danged if I know how much I’ve put through it).

It’ll shoot right about on 1” groups at 50yds, under 2.5” groups at 100. Velocitors it’ll shoot 1.25” groups at 50 and 2” groups at 100.

Aguilla target it will shoot .75” groups at 50 and 1.5” groups at 100.

Hmmmm....
I put a BX trigger in mine not expecting it to make much difference. Boy was I wrong! The BX is a major improvement over stock.

Mine came from Brownell's the other day. I haven't had time to install it yet, but dry firing it in the package has me excited. It's not the most super awesome target trigger I've ever tried, but wow, for $50 it seems pretty great, and I agree that it already feels like it'll be way better than stock. I think this is going to be just what this rifle needed.

Same. Really made a nice difference.

This is the same experience with a BX trigger I purchased. I did have to touch up the sliding sear/hammer surfaces to get it better than okay. I didn't do more since I don't have much experience with these trigger units. I know more about it now so next time I should get the desired results.

Everytime I fired the wood furnitured take down I have the stock loosened up on the receiver, applied torque didn't make any difference. I had to bed the receiver in the stock to get it as it should be. Accuracy got better as well. I use the same 'just get the barrel to rotate on' adjustment method previously mentioned. Accuracy is much more consistent.

10-22s will be classified as assault weapons under the current draft of HR7115.... just a reminder that we have to stay vigilant. There is no rest for Patriots.

I got my Kidd auto bolt release swapped over to the BX trigger and the BX is installed in the rifle now. Holy cow. I don't have a trigger gauge, but I would be willing to bet that it's a little less than 3#. Very, very nice trigger for the money. I can't wait to go shoot this rifle again!

Bug Buster

Hawkeye, you inspired me with this thread to get out my 10/22 takedown and buy one of those Bug Buster scopes for it. Seems like a really nice scope for the money. Now I can't wait to get out and shoot it. I like that it fits in the carry bag (just barely) with the scope attached.

Amazon has the scope with QD rings and lens caps for $59.95. It must be a sale price they normally sell for around $90. I just ordered one for my 10/22. It has a 4.3 rating with 2099 reviews.
