    Ruger 10/22 - Tricks, tips and modifications

    Love them or hate them, the Ruger 10/22 is one of the best selling rifles on the market. They're cheap, easy to use, reliable and eminently customisable. Here's a good place to share your tips, tricks and modifications. Show us your cool pink camo stock - we won't judge you... (ok, maybe a little bit)... or your 100 metre target results that proves to the critics that these rifles deserve a place in your safe.

    Best mod I did to mine was auto bolt release as they can be finicky from the factory trying to use the manual release. Don't even need to buy a fancy volquartzen (sp?) bolt release, all you need is a round file and google

    Best thing I did after filing the release was drill a hole in the back of the receiver so you can use a cleaning rod properly.
    Trigger job helps a lot as well

    Best tip for free? Take some 1200 grit wet and dry sand paper to the BCG and polish it, if you are having trouble running subs there is a strong chance this sort it out. Or you could pay for a fancy polished one but seriously, do it yourself, it' very easy!

    Have had few over the years. The best things I've done is Swap the steel bolt buffer pin out for a polymer and replace the factory trigger with a Volquatsen TG2000 trigger.

    Those push on cans smoke everything else for noise suppression. No substitute for suppressor internal volume.
    Biggest improvement for mine was a trigger job. Got the Volquatsen kit, and groups closed up well.
    Mine had over 20k rounds through it over 20ish years, so the BCG and action were smoothed out nicely. A friend got a new one, and it was rough as guts. Some polishing grit and elbow grease smoothed the internals out.

    I can also elaborate on what upgrades did not work well:
    Replacing the factory sporter barrel with a Gun City carbon tension barrel - no accuracy improvement, and ended up with ejection problems. The supplied suppressor was rubbish.
    Hogue stock. The barrel channel was not straight, so the barrel would touch the stock. How much depended on whether I was using the bipod, or shooting off hand. Too flimsy to be useful.

    Following with interest, so far extended mag release and polymer bolt buffer much quieter now with subs.

    I did the trigger on mine with Volquartsen parts and the next best thing I got was a Kidd spring kit for the bolt. Pure magic for shooting subs with the choice of 3 different spring weights so you can get a reliable cycle.
