Over all these years, I too feel the .22 is probably my (our) favorite caliber. I say 'our' as my wife collects Ruger old model .22's. The RST's & Mk I'red eagles', the Bearcats, and the early 'flatgate' Single Sixes. She enjoys them as collectors piecs and has a couple she will even shoot now and then.
My rifles are both Ruger 10/22 and couple of Marlins, a 39a and the Mountie 39, they are lever actions and were my first rifles.
The 10/22's are a couple of the walmart 'specials' black /grey laminated mannlicher stocks (RSI) One was a gift 'action job' from Chief AJ to my son Joe for helping him out at some of the gun shows years ago. Very sweet shooting and very accurate too. I keep another 10/22 all weather , fiber stock ,in the corner for any 'varmints' out back.
I shot competitively for many years with a High Standard Military Trophy. THE most accurate gun I have ever had or even shot. First one I got back in 1969 and it's still here. Have added a Victor, with the 'rare' slant grip, as a "keeper". Had two of them ,but like a dummy, I sold one off to a friend years ago for him to shoot, and he will NOT sell it back either.. A very rare gun too. Few were made.

Anyway, the .22 is cheap, affordable to shoot. Is fun and effective , and as I said has to be our 'favorite'.

In rifles I have 2 Ruger 10/22s, Savage Mod 10C bolt, Winchester 9422 lever (22 LR, NIB), Remington Mod 511 bolt, Marlin 39A lever, and a CZ 452-2E bolt. In hand guns I have 2 Ruger OM and 2 NM Single-Sixes, Ruger MK III, a Walther P-22, S&W Mod 17, and a Colt Ace (1911).

Though center fires are great, I enjoy shooting my 22s more than anything else.

Anyone ever heard of replacing the recoil pin on the 10/22 with a buffer pin? If so, was there any noticeable change in performance of the gun afterwards....pro or con?

I have heard of it, but I honestly do not see the need for it.

What I hear from those who have done it is that it quiets down the bolt noise and slows the cycle time ever so slightly.

I may look into it.

I like the buffer pins because it replaces a steel cross pin in an aluminum receiver with a bumper pin that should extend the life of the receiver. I haven't shot mine enough to see if that is really true.

I have a plastic recoil buffer pin in mine, and recommend it. They cost less than $8 on ebay or gunbroker, and to me anytime metal and metal slap together it just seems logical to put some sort of buffer between them.

I recently gave my son the 10/22 DSP his mother (my ex) gave me for Christmas in 1981. So, that leaves me with;

10/22 Canadian Centennial (I love this little rifle!) [^]

Mark II Stainless 5.5" bull barrel

Single-Six .22LR/.22Mag with 6.5" barrel

Remington Model 513 Target Master single shot

And my grandfather's old single shot Stevens Model 55 (so old it has no serial number)

My 10/22 still shoots same as it always did, very well. But I like the performance much better. No "clack" when the bolt hits the "urethane" bolt buffer from WeaponKraft I installed.

The gun operates quieter.
