Newb from Wyo saying hello

Just dropping a note to say greetings. I bought my Dad's 10/22 from him when I was 10 and promptly forgot about it. 20 years later I found it in my closet and have started rebuilding/upgrading it.

Thus far I've upgraded the extractor (used to fail to eject), put in a new trigger (just the bx), new bolt release, and new receiver pins/bolt stop pin (2 of the 3 were missing). I've also purchased a bx-15 (local store didn't have the 25) which is oddly loose/jiggly. Oh and a FAB defense stock.

I gave it a thorough cleaning and noted a bit of rust on the barrel exterior, so I might do a barrel next. Currently deciding on a rail/optic combo.

Greetings from Ohio and welcome to the forum...! Get out and shoot your Dad's 10/22. Be safe and enjoy it. Nice to have a family connected Ruger to keep and pass on.
