It is my understanding that in 2008 or so, Ruger began substituting plastic trigger guard housings and triggers for their former metal versions.
I assume the plastic parts work fine, but is there any opinions one way or the other and the value of replacing the plastic trigger guard assembly and trigger with the former version?
I have a new, never shot 10/22. I have sent the trigger assembly to Clark for a trigger job. He also sells the OEM trigger guard assembly and his own version of the metal trigger.
I think another difference is the plastic magazine release so I also intended to get Clark's extended magazine release.
Comments and opinions appreciated on any of the three replacement parts. I have to assume most of you are OK with Clark's trigger job.
