View Full Version : Ruger 10/22 parts

December 25, 2012, 09:21 PM
I just got a ruger 10/22 and I have $750 that I want to spend on it. Any advice on how I should spend it? (Yes I am saying I want you to tell me how to spend my money)

Trigger (http://5003.webpossystem.com/ViewProduct.asp?ModelNumber=BBT), stock (http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/Replacement-Stocks-for-Ruger-10-22-and-77-MKII-s/6.htm?searching=Y&sort=9&cat=6&show=12&page=1&brand=RUGER%201022), barrel (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/305251/adams-and-bennett-barrel-ruger-10-22-22-long-rifle-920-diameter-1-in-16-twist-18-blue), scope (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/168462/simmons-whitetail-classic-rifle-scope-65-20x-50mm-adjustable-objective-mil-dot-reticle-matte), a couple BX-25 magazines, and spend the rest on ammo.

The best money is spent on a Voltquartsen hammer, which lowers the trigger pull weight.Hammer $40 (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/163143/volquartsen-target-hammer-with-bushings-ruger-10-22)

On my four 10/22s, I also did the following:
Extractor $12 (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/363360/volquartsen-exact-edge-extractor-ruger-10-22-10-22-magnum-mark-ii-mark-iii-22-45)
Bolt release $11.50 (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/688102/volquartsen-automatic-bolt-release-ruger-10-22-black)
Buffer $11 (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/572337/volquartsen-recoil-buffer-ruger-10-22-10-22-magnum)
TO-9 scope mount $7 (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/1477141742/weaver-1-piece-tip-off-weaver-style-scope-base-ruger-10-22-to-9)
Magazine release $19 (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/666996/volquartsen-extended-magazine-release-ruger-10-22-10-22-magnum-black)

Add your own preference for scope and rings.

The only other thing I did was to adjust headspace to 0.044" by carefully hand honing the front of the bolt.

Use good quality ammo and they shoot 0.5-0.75" five shot groups at 50 yards.

Is this your first 10/22?

I have 3, one is tacticooled out, one is as close to a match rifle as I could make it, and the last is bone stock. I actually shoot the one that is bone stock the most.:cool:

I guess my point is I would just shoot it as is for a while and see how you like it; but that said feel free to go nuts.

If you want to go all out you target rifle then a Kidd (http://www.coolguyguns.com/Combo_p_66.html) 2-stage trigger with lever mag release, Kidd barrel, and Boyd's (http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/Replacement-Stocks-for-Ruger-10-22-and-77-MKII-s/6.htm?searching=Y&sort=9&cat=6&show=12&page=1&brand=RUGER%201022) or Revolution (http://www.shootersdiscount.com/cart/stocks/rimfire/revolution-10/22.html?page=all) stock plus and Volquartsen extractor and a Weaver V-16 4-16x42 or V24 6-24x42 scope (on sale at Natchez). Then I'd bed the receiver and perhaps 1" of the barrel.

If you want to build a plinker/hunter then go with a bit heavier (2+lbs) and either a Tactical Solutions or Whistle Pig light weight barrel in a Boyds or Revolution stock and a Leupold VX-1 2-7x28 rimfire.

Here are some ideas from my collection:

You didn't specify what you want to do with the rifle... hunt, target shooting ETC. But, having said that goto Tony Kidd's web site and start drooling... www.coolguyguns.com To start... if you're hunting a Kidd single stage trigger... if you're target shooting go with a two stage trigger. Add a Kidd barrel, bolt and charging handle and you're going to be shooting!!


This is mine built off of a Magnum Research 17 Mach II.

I'm mainly just looking to hunt small game like squirrels and rabbits. I like heavy triggers so I think I'll leave that alone. Stealth01 what kind of stock is that?

December 26, 2012, 03:12 PM
Do you plan on scoping it? I like the fact that the 10-22 is a quick-handling, petite little rifle; handling qualities that would not be compromised by adding a Williams receiver sight to it. Any scope, imo, would detract from the trim lines and handling assets the 10-22 offers in stock form. But I'm pretty certain mine is the minority's opinion. :o

I'd start with a Brimstone trigger job, Tier 2 or 3.

It's a Barracuda stock.

Wow, so many directions to go...

I kind of agree with 88Scrat. I'd buy some magazines and ammo and shoot the snot out of it for a while.

I'll be honest, I've never owned a stock 10/22 but I have several that are built in a variety of configurations. For $750, you can buy or build a pretty smokin' 10/22.

In the "buy category" a Fedderson (http://www.1022rifle.com/rifle-ruger) for $465 sounds like a good match for what you want. Also a Magnum Research Lite (http://www.magnumresearch.com/Firearms/Magnum-Research-22LR-Ambidextrous-Thumbhole-Stock-Rifle.asp) is about $550 and also a great deal.

You can get a Tactical Machining receiver for $120. Buy a used bolt and trigger ($80) and get them tuned up ($100), stock of your choice ($80 to $200) and a quality barrel ($200 to $300) and you still won't be over $750 for a hot hunting rig.
