YouTube is your friend. Many videos on the subject of firing pin replacement on 10-22s.

Might as well upgrade your ejector while you're at it.

If you mean extractor I agree. Partial to Power Custom Sharp Claw there.

You're right. Long day and brain is not fully functional. It's the first piece you'll remove from the bolt to get to the firing pin.

Check over at rimfirecentral.com and I'm sure someone has done a writeup on it.

Yes, the Power Custom extractor is very good. I have it in several of my 10-22's.
