One new part I forgot about. An extended magazine release. It is worth its weight in gold. You can actually get the magazine to drop out while you are wearing gloves and without getting mad.

Re: 10/22 tips?

Thanks for the advice, folks. The extended mag release sounds like a good start. Maybe a different bolt release too. The 10/22T comes with what Ruger calls a target trigger, and my gauge shows 3lb. Not too gritty, but plenty of overtravel. I can cure that with a drill press, tap, and hex screw. They also claim a tight target chamber, but we'll see.

Off to the range now, and I'll try whatever brands of shells they got. First shots with a new toy. Oh, Boy!

Re: 10/22 tips?

Well, good news and bad news. The rifle put 9 of 10 Eley Target rounds, at 25yd, into a hole I could cover with a 9mm case mouth. However, even with full down adjustment on the scope and a field expedient shim under the front ring mount, it shot that group 3" high. Hmm. Time to get out the straight edges and see what's not right.

Re: 10/22 tips?

That is great.

Maybe the T model actually delivers great performance although most of the Eley shoot well anyway but are a little "stickey" in cold weather but not as bad as some of the Remington.

I thought about the bolt release modification but just have never gotten around to doing it.

I finally put a B Square base on mine and changed to Weaver style rings. It is cheap but seems to do OK.

Re: 10/22 tips?

I just bought a blued T last week. The first thing I did was install a kidd trigger in it. 6 ounces right now. I will be using this rifle for 50 ft. indoor offhand shooting. So far I have'nt found an ammo that it does'nt like.

Re: 10/22 tips?

I'll be the bad guy I guess and tell you I have had no good luck with the 10-22. I switched over to bolt action marlins and wont shoot another 10-22 in the field if I dont have to. I dont have to dump 800 into it to get it shooting good either.
