Default Are all factory Ruger 10/22 the same?

Fellow Calgunners, I have a 10/22 that I bought in 1978, a changed the barrel a long time ago and lost the original bbl. Will a newer bbl from eBay or Gunbroker fit this older 10/22? Thanks

Yes. it should fit fine. If you are looking for a new OEM, Brownells has them for around 45.00.

I'd say that the overall quality of your 1978 10/22 is much better than what is sold today, although the modern replacement parts would still be compatible.

It has become well known that some Ruger receivers had the hole for the barrel tenon incorrectly drilled on the production line. Barrel will aim to the left before you do.

You could even put a target/bull barrel on it, the receiver is the same. But then you'd need a new stock too. I converted a basic wood/blue carbine model (that I bought for $129 just to add a second rifle to a DROS fee) then got a target stock/SS barrel combo sale from Midway for $99. Well OK those prices were 12 years ago. And I sold the carbine stock and barrel on eBay.

My 10/22 was from the 70s as well. Aluminum alloy trigger guard and barrel band and plastic butt plate. Barrel is fine.

I did replace the mag plunger with a Kidd plunger and higher tension spring which secures the larger BX25 mags in place much better, greatly improving their reliability. Also got a Kidd extractor and Kidd mag release lever.

Compliments my 70s 18 round Marlin 60 and CZ Farmer bolt action .22lr rifles.

Put a Kidd barrel in that thing. The barrell will cost more than what you paid for but lighter weight and shooting one hole groups at 50 yards is worth it.

Seems like there's a factory barrel or 2 floating around the CG market place, now and again, for dirt. Or used to be. PAX

This thread has inspired me. I am sort of bored with this 1967 vintage 10/22 and have been wanting to trick it out. It would certainly improve the look and value to dump the wood and refit it with something tactical. Maybe a bipod and RDS to round it out.

Is that really how the stocks came back then, or was this a special model? I like it!

Thank you. As Dan mentioned, it is the "fingergroove stock" from many moons ago. It does not seem to have any plastic parts except the stock cap and butt plate.

I guess I could safely dispose of the stock for you. We wouldn't want it to add to the landfill. I'll take care of figuring out a way to reuse the wood.

Deadpan humor just doesn't translate well on message boards. Anyone who would part out an early mint fingergroove 10/22 is not smart enough to have owned it in the first place.

Sorry gents.

1980s already transitioned from Walnut to birch. Plastic butt plates started sometime in the 70s. Plastic barrel band came later, 80s still uses metal). Even though many birch stocks are plain, if you were lucky you might get a rare tiger striped example, but generally the wood has gone downhill. The finger groove in the earlier post is the cream of the crop, and worth a small fortune in that shape. The only factory stock with more collectors value is the checkered version.

I've got a purty one (a rifle only a father could love, anyway) that's from the second year of production. Picked it up for 100 bucks at a gun show 8 or 10 years ago. It's not in good shape, and I believe it got hauled behind a truck by a chain for a few miles, but I love it for being an oldie, and it still shoots great!
