Where to start

Hey guys, new to the site. Bought my son a 10/22 50th aniversary ss last year, time to start building it now and just wondering where I should start. First off not looking to build a 1,000 dollar target rifle, just something a little more accurate and easier to shoot(lighter trigger pull). I was already looking at the brimstone tier 2 trigger job. Would also like to replace the barrel and stock as well as it has the synthetic stock and I'd like to go back to wood. Thanks in advance guys, I'm sure you will all help I know you will give.

Most folks start with the trigger. I've done the Kidd trigger kit and some of my friends have gone the Brimstone route and are very happy with the results. My biggest improvement in accuracy was with a change to a Kidd barrel. A barrel would be next on my list. These two will get you a nice accurate 1022.

Scorpion8 is an unknown quantity at this point
By the time you've replaced almost everything but the logo, you'll have a $1,000 target rifle. Mine is accurate enough for me right out of the box, and I prefer the slimmer stock barrel to the boxy-looking after market barrels. I did some action work, had Que do my bolt and extractor, and put in a better magazine release. Just those simple items are enough for me.

Do the trigger first! You may find this is all you need to do? If you do upgrade the barrel to a bull barrel you will need to get the stock as well.

smithnframe will become famous soon enough
Why not buy an Anschutz 22 target rifle? I have several 10/22's and they're fine for what I use them for........plinking! I get out the Anschutz when I want super accurate!
