But, if it makes you happy, do it anyway. There are reasons other than pure accuracy for most modifications.

Well said Weasel, Better said than I could do in the other thread. Do you remember the JC Whitney catalog? Headers promised 20%, mufflers another 20%, carburetor another 20%. It just doesn't work like that especially if none of it played well together! Some would have us believe the addition of a rear tang will transform a factory stock 10/22 into a tack driving rifle.
