This brings the trigger down to around three pounds of pull. It will shoot one inch groups at 50 yards and two inch groups at 100 yards, using CCI Mini-Mags or Winchester Super X Hyper Speed. This was with a Nikon 2X7 shotgun scope on it. I just removed it yesterday and installed a Nikon 3X9 BDC Rimfire scope on it. I'm going to try to get out within the next day or so, to see if there's any improvment, as the better magnification and finer crosshairs might make a difference.

With that said, in many cases ammo produced for sub-sonic use is held to tighter standards, and as such can produce more consistent results.
You guys did notice this thread was from 2010 right... zombieeesssss

I have a two year old Sporter (walnut) model. No mods except a nylon bolt stop.

I have a 3-7 X 20 Tasco scope on it I paid $17 for. I "bore-sighted" it with an $8 plastic Tasco "scope guide". It took one magazine to zero it.

It's a much better scope than I expected. I just thought the larger scopes didn't look right on the small 10/22. If I upgraded, Weaver makes one the same size for about $125!

I usually get less than 2" groups at fifty yards, and it holds within a click of zero when it's been removed and put back. With a thinner (than Ruger's) Weaver T-09 base, I can see thru the mounts and use the irons, too.

I like it enough that I bought a second one, and it's ready should I ever wreck the first one.

Photo posted below, messed up putting it here!

It would be helpful to specify what shooting position you are using to get your groups... I can hit 1/4 to 1/2 inch groups at 50 yards with my SS carbine 10/22, both sitting with a rest and prone (prone is a lot easier).

What ammo are you using? I'd like to try it.

I'm getting decent groups at 25-30 yards, open sites,kneeling postion, with the "golden bullets". thats at an out door range and my first day out. i want to get good at all positions that don't require and sand bag and bench first, then dial in with the scope and bench for the "long range" shots at 100 yards.
Happy Shooting!

Can't say what the newer ones can do, but my 73 out of the box did under 2 inches at 100 yards. The local crows and jack rabbits learned respect very quickly at anything under 200 yards.

The best group I ever had I shot three at 60 yards, bench rested, everything stock, with CCI Mini Mags, that I could cover everything up with a nickel. I think I was more lucky with that group than I am good.

I think if it was bench rested, you can't really call it luck. Unless you are talking about getting lucky with atmospheric conditions. Bench rest shooting at relatively short distances is really the only way to test the accuracy of the gun. Everything else is testing the accuracy of the ammo and shooter.

I shoot a bit of Civilian Marksmanship Program .22 Sporter. The second year I shot it, I used a straight out of the box stainless 10/22 and won a gold medal. The Bullseye for these matches is: X ring about 7/8", 10 ring 2 and 7/8, 9 ring 3 and 5/8 inches. During the 50 yard slow fire prone stage, I could hold the 10 ring, with a few fliers into the 9 ring. The rifle had factory sights, no scope. I had to search around for ammo that would let it shoot that well, eventually finding high velocity Lapua Speed Ace (no longer made, unfortunately). I would love to have used standard velocity, but reliability was a problem. Using jeweler's screwdrivers, I got really good zeros the day before the CMP nationals, and blackened my sights carefully just before the match.

I am 54, and my eyesight is what you would expect. In addition to the absolute necessity of finding ammo the rifle liked, Optometric intervention was critical. I had my Optometrist cut a pair of glasses with the Optical Center near the top of the lenses, the lens for my master eye set up for focus about 36" away, the other eye set for infinity. Most of the time, by brain puts the two immages together, rather sharply.

I had the rifle redone with barrel breech faced off .200", rechambered with a reamer that allows light bullet engraving on loading, headspace reset, top rear of the bolt radiused, and a pin put in over the firing pin, plus pillar bedding and Millett pistol sights. Now it will reliably shoot standard velocity Wolf Match Target as well or better than the really expensive high speed. Just recently, I have shot some CCI standard velocity that I had sorted by rim thickness, with mostly X ring results.

Almost three years ago I bought a black painted 10/22, and had all the same things done to it, plus put on a 4X scope. Last year for slow fire prone I shot a 100-8X. This year I shot a 100-7X.

10/22 Carbine Accuracy.

Just picked up an old 10/22 carbine and I can't believe how well it shots at 50 yards. This rifle is a 1977 and I think it's had some trigger work done to it. My son and I, lined it up this afternoon and we were hitting 20 gauge hulls at 50 yards every shot. Then we tried 45 acp cases and was able to hit a few of them. This blows my mind. I would say this it the most accurate 22lr rifle I've ever shot and I've shot a lot.

The only thing different from stock on mine is a Hogue overmolded stock (OEM stock hasn't got a good cheek weld for scope use IMO), and a Nikon Prostaff Rimfire 4x32 scope. Very accurate at 50yds, 1" groups with Velocitors (my favorite .22LR round), and not much worse using Federal bulk.
Before those additions, open sights only, it was still more than good enough to 50yds and beyond shooting squirrels and rabbits.
I don't much target shoot, except when sighting in.
I like plinking, but ammo availability makes that a no-no these days.
I read a lot about trigger jobs on various firearms, but the only one I ever owned that got one was my Mosin Nagant. Otherwise I seem to have no trouble with triggers. I just learn the feel of each one, and make do. Seems to work for me.
