10/22 Takedown Upgrades
 
I was thinking of getting an upgraded recoil bolt buffer made out of polyurethane or another material for my 10/22 Takedown to help reduce the vibration and silence the action a bit.

I'm curious what other upgrades some of you might do/have done to your Takedown. I looked for a thread on here similar to this, but I didn't seem to come across anything substantial. Maybe I wasn't looking in the right place.

Anyway thanks in advance for any feedback you could provide!!

KIDD makes a great bolt buffer that works wonders for just $6, and it is made out of viton rubber with a hardened steel core.

KIDD Bolt Buffer

I would also recommend the following upgrades:

Auto Bolt Release (Bolt Hold Open)
Cocking Assembly
Extended Mag Release
"Trigger Job" Kit
Receiver Pin Kit

Just to name a few...but ultimately build it the way YOU want it to be built!!!

I can vouch for KIDD products as all of the above I have installed on my 10/22 and am very pleased!

#1-Shoot the heck out it as it comes out of the box to make sure it runs OK
#2-Trigger job
#3-Bolt Buffer
2&3 actually go together since you will be right there for the trigger

To do the trigger job you have to take out the factory bolt hold open, so you might want to swap in the aftermarket one while you are literally right there as well ;)

Get them, at least two as they do wear out. I did and I am very pleased with the result.
The TD is new, give it enough time and the other goodies will follow.

After Thought
 
You did not state what you wished to use your TD for. IMHO you should now start looking at ammunition. There is a WORLD of different ammo out there. I would suggest that you get several boxes of the same kind. At least 100 rounds. If you have not mounted a scope I would get one and a set of good solid mounts. Sight it in and I do mean sight it in. At 50 yds. you should be able to put a 10 shot group inside a quarter sized hole. The gun will do it. I sprang for the Timney trigger group at about $220.00 and it is well worth it. The trigger is out of sight compared to the stock trigger.
Now start trying other brands and styles of ammo. I have found that mine likes CCI Velocitor. It is a full 40 gr. HP and bugs out at about 1435 FPS and is very accurate IN MY TD. Remember every one is a little different and what works well with mine might not the thing for yours. I have to go right now. I will get back to you. I got my first .22LR at age 7, I am now 66 and I still love them and have at least 1 for 61 years. I have only 1 now and it is the TD.

Thanks everyone for the great information!!! I ordered one of those Kidd bolt buffers and a bolt hold open for now. Looking forward to maybe trying out the trigger job in the future.

Winggunner, I have been trying different .22LR ammo on every range trip, so it's nice to see that as one of your recommendations. I will get my hands on some of that CCI Velocitor and try it out.

Thanks again.

James
