gunsmithing the ruger 10/22??

i finally got my 10/22 stock carbine 3 days ago and brought it to the range yesterday for a rough zero at 25M and then 50M with the redfield revenge 6-18x44 scope with fine reticle..

...i tried about 250 rds of 6 different ammo and got my best results(1" or less) with the CCI sub-sonic and standard velocity and very acceptable performance(less than 2") with the CCI velocitor and stinger ammo and the armscor high velocity also..(used a not too stable MTM portable benchrest)

the only disappointment(more than 3") was the CCI greentag which was also the most expensive ...

i feel there is still room for improvement with a better trigger..

..the parts/accessories for the 10/22 upgrades are very expensive here at 3-4X the US$ price and i was wondering what upgrades can just pure gunsmithing do to improve the performance of the stock gun..

this means just using the original parts and not using drop-in or replacement parts...manufacturing something new thru gunsmithing skills is ok..

also is there any way to keep the bolt open after the last shot??

thank you for reading this and for any replies..

The auto-bolt release and extended mag release are my favorite mods so far. There should be threads on how people have done it and what the difference is.

...these 2 mods cost $83 each from the local Kidd dealer...a bolt buffer is $24 and a ruger 10-rd magazine is $47 while the 25-rd one is $83...

i am now afraid to ask prices for a complete trigger assembly and replacement barrels and stocks...my stock gun already cost me $740 inclusive of permits..

i guess you can understand why i want to explore gunsmithing options first...

You might check Youtube. There are several videos on the 10-22 and DIY upgrades.

You can inlet and bed your action. Also, while doing this, you can pillar bed your barrel and action and float your barrel. This is probably the best 'bang' for your buck without purchasing any parts. You will need:

1. a few different rasps for inletting
2. Some sandpaper with various grit, (start with 120 and work up to 600 grit)
3. JB-weld or some other bedding compound. A lot of folks swear by JB-weld
4. Some mold release. Neutral density shoe polish works very well for this.
5. Some shrink tubing or grafting tape to wrap around your barrel.
6. Some pillar hardware. These are screws, flanges and other stuff you can get at your local hardware store.

Instructions on how to properly inlet, bed and float your action and barrel are shown here

As to ammo, I have gotten my best results using CCI minimags and Aguila Super Extra, (both std and high velocity). Of course, I have gotten much better results with the more expensive ELEY, SKDG-JAG and other high end ammunition ... but that is a lot more money.

You should look into the price of the Archangel Nomad Kit. It comes with an auto-bolt release, extended mag release, 10 round mag that can be converted to 23~24rd. It's $175 on amazon in the U.S. If you figure out shipping, I'll throw in a Pro-mag buffer and stock bolt release... Or try and find used 10/22 parts to practice on first.
