New 10/22

Just brought home my new 10/22 from Sportsmans Warehouse.
Nice piece of wood, almost looks like walnut. I don't particularly like the plastic butt piece or the barrel band....oh well.
The mag has a few sharp edges on it that I'm sure will round off a bit in use.
I see the manual warns about putting the 'scope mount on...careful the screws don't bind the bolt.
I'll put my old Weaver 4x on it and see how she shoots.

Biggie on the scope mount mounting is do NOT over-tighten and strip the threads in the receiver. Aluminum receiver + steel screws = BE CAREFUL. The "binding" parts would be if the screws protruded too far inside and rubbed on the bolt.
You do know the trigger housing, and trigger is polymer too right?

Yep,...know that...won't be spending big $$$$ for a Timney.
The 'scope is mounted, no obvious binding, no stripped threads....the bolt release is a bit tight, or I'm just not on to it yet.

Congrats on your new 10-22! I love mine (just put several hundred rounds through her this past weekend). Do you have the stainless model or blued?

Other choice besides Timney, many better. Good that it's all on fine. Re: the bolt release...could simply need some rough edges cleaned up and any finish smoothed to reduce any high friction points. While it's out, re-radius the hole easier release.

Just a blue one. I just wanted a plinker to take along when I go to the range for some practice with a handgun. I like paper punchin' for group size, and checking for best ammo for a particular gun.
I might pick up a 25 round clip sometime.

See you are downeast there.....I hunted for years in the Buckfield, West Sumner area...
Could you be more specific about "re-radius the hole?"
Much appreciated...thanks

I've got a sporter stainless version of the 10/22. It was my first Ruger. I love it. You'll enjoy yours as well. I would recommend the Ruger 25 round magazine over other brands. I have two and they work very well.

I don't mean to hijack this thread but I was reading quickly and saw sumner and buckfield and thought i misread. My good buddy has a camp in Sumner. We fish washburn and shagg ponds. Man, I have hunted there for years too.

Well, I'm not "Downeast" as far as what that's referred to here, that's the upper coast while I'm down here outside Portland.

If you just a plinker, hunter, or just a shooter, you can save $$$ by sending your trigger to Brimstone Gunsmithing. I think they are in your neck of the woods. For $30.00 you'll get a greatly improved trigger. If you want a reasonably priced new trigger, you might try Hornet. I have both and like them a ton.

If you can do even the simplest hands-on work you can do the trigger yourself. Most folks are more than pleased with just a simple change of the hammer ($30-35). From there the choices are almost endless. Do what fits your needs not makes brand makes it fancy. From my experiences, the VQ hammer will give a lighter feel while the Power Custom hammer gives a smoother feel while being perhaps just a minute bit more in pull weight.
