I have read many posts on mods like soft buffer pin, extractor, quick release. Read many more posts saying don't fool with the gun just leave it alone.

My question is if you were going to do some mods to the 10/22 TD what would be the first mod and what are the must do mods and why?

The automatic bolt release is what I would have thought to see several people post up. I am surprised nobody has mentioned it.

Auto Bolt for sure. It sucks to have to release with your left hand at the same time as the right. Here is a pic of mine while I was doing it. The left is the factory VQ part you can buy, the right is the factory Ruger one and the middle is the factory one I modified. I wasn't quite done yet, but you can see all you have to do is grind out the nub and oval the hole a little more. Now my bolt closes once you pull the bolt back slightly. Nice! and all it cost was time.http://img685.imageshack.us/img685/8330/autobolt.jpg (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/685/autobolt.jpg/)

Already looking at the auto bolt release, and stocks... What else does everyone recommend?

For convenience, I started with the bolt release. I also added a Power Custom extended mag release because mine is early 70's vintage with the PITA flush mag release. Also added a Volq extractor for reliability. Most recently, I stoned the hammer to lighten the trigger pull a bit and save cash for a real trigger assembly later. OP post your budget and I'm sure you'll get some good info on low budget, near stock builds to high dollar trick stuff.

It's a huge difference compared to the stock trigger. Now my 10/22 sits in an Archangel Marauder g36c body..

+1. Those two parts are money well spent. It will improve the function of the rifle considerably.

Thanx, Bohoki, I just ordered one.

10/22 mods:

Older 10/22s:
1. Extended magazine release.
2. Auto bolt release.

Newer 10/22s:
1. Volquartsen or Power Custom extractor.
2. Auto bolt release.
3. If the trigger is really bad, some trigger work or a Volq or PC hammer kit.

second this entry

if you want the best trigger get a KID or Timney drop in. expensive but very crisp and light & adjustable. I dont have one but I have shot them before.

another upgrade I like is getting a BULL Barrel. have fun and welcome to the addiction of rimfire shooting. its FUN, cheaper and still great practice

First mod was a bolt buffer. Then it sat in the safe for 6 or so years then I got bit by the gun bug. Last week I installed a Revolution Yukon stock and E.R. Shaw SS 20" barrel. Today I ordered a two-stage Kidd trigger.

I'm a minimalist. So first, sling, then, auto bolt release, then mags. Leave alone, shoot it, shoot it, shoot it. Simple, practical, useful.

Looks to be the same length behind the receiver as the popular Butler Creek folder.
These folders need a minimum 17" long barrel to be over 26" folded, the 16" barrels leave it an inch short.
Most people use the standard Ruger 18" barrel with these...they end up just over 27" long.
Even if this stock is a little shorter than a Butler Creek, with the 18" barrel it will make minimum.

I was like "so am I supposed to custom whittle my own stock to fit out of this 4x4 lumber?"

bohoki
04-27-2012, 12:45 AM
oh the stock is a marvel its got more storage than ikea and its sturdy lock up puts butler creek to shame and wont freeze your cheek

http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/bohoki/DCP_0674.jpg

my only problem is no handguard so i flipped my john masen black warrior one and it works great

with standard 18 barrel its oal is 27 when folded

the main complaint is that it does not lock in folded position also it is not comfortable to fire in folded position

but talk about storage i can fill that stock with enough slim jims and mike and ikes to last a weekendand then there is the storage that is in the zone of the stock when it is locked you can almost store a box of ammo in there and if you can rig up a grip cap you could store a half of a kit kat bar

the grip is small feels just like an ak-47 grip

I LOVE the houge stocks, my 10/22 has a factory "Target" trigger so I haven't gotten back the trigger yet. Tactical Solutions barrel, Optic Rail, mag release, and a few tri-mags (I normally wouldn't have bothered but I won one, and the other I traded to a Cal-Gunner that moved out of state for a couple real magazine buttons, turns out I like them) leupold rings, and a semi crappy BSA sweet .22 It works pretty well together and its one of my favorite rifles to shoot (its honestly a tie for favorite with this and my AR in .308)

Did the drop in mods on two of my 10/22s, then the Volquartson drop in trigger unit and then the Kidd drop in. It is without a doubt the best of the bunch. A good light crisp trigger pull is a wonderful thing in a 10/22. Since it's all about accuracy for me, all the other mods are about comfort or ease of use, for me it's about my groups. But, I did all the other mods as well!;)

http://i384.photobucket.com/albums/oo284/cudakidd/ruger/CIMG4883.jpgwith Volquartson, now has a Kidd...This is the Best 10/22 STock, EVER! EA production, no longer made...very ergonomic, light, and fits me perfectly!
http://i384.photobucket.com/albums/oo284/cudakidd/ruger/CIMG4885.jpgThis one now has the Volquartson and has a Youth model Volquartson Wood Pink Laminated stock on order and a matching Black to Pink Whistlepig barrel on order for the Wife!

Auto bolt release
Polish the bolt and trigger components
Hogue overmold stock

THAT'S IT. Everything else tends to reduce the reliability.

Simply not true. The drop in trigger units are very high quality and very reliable! Never had ANY issues with them...

Later on I added a TacSol barrel, a Boyd stock and a Leupold 3-9X optic.

Thanks. I had to check mine because I thought it was 16", but it's 18". :D

He was referring to the 10/22 Take Down model. I don't think there are many, if any, after market stocks for it yet.

AH I see. Yes I haven't seen any stocks for the TD yet.


On a side note, is there any performance benefit to an upgraded extractor if my shells are extracting fine? They are a little irregular, but I never get a FTE unless the ammo is trash (and then its only 1 or two out of 200 rnds or so).
