have you looked at RimFire Central? They have a forum on your specific model 22. It's a great site.

tiller,

I just changed my stock and barrel (Volquartsen). Now it shoots super good groups compared to the factory barrel.

If I were you I'd stay with the factory extractor cuz my buddy changed his out to a Volquartsen and he began to experience extractor issues.

I didn't change any trigger parts cuz I shot so many testing rounds it gave itself a trigger job.

I have two. One I modified with an Archangel stock kit, and a few other evil black rifle accesories. A real looker at the range. The other has been modified with a Boyds SS Evolution stock and a full barrel shroud. If I can ever figure out the pic issue here, I'll post some pics.

I shot over 500 rounds through my new 597 VTR and just recently lost my extractor, spring & spring guide. Its now part of all the spent casings at the range. Overall the best .22LR in my collection to shoot!
