Need help with new purchase

Log in to see fewer ads
First a little background. I have a mostly stock 10/22 that I purchased in 1988. It's not the most accurate .22 in the world, but I can consistently get 1.5 to 1.75 inch groups at fifty yards. My dilemna is that I just bought another 10/22 used from a guy at work, and after giving it a complete cleaning and checking it out, I set out to see how it would group. Wolf, Remington, Federal, CCI, and Winchester ammo. Ten different types in all. My BEST group was over three inches at fifty yards. The crown on the carbine looks fine, the receiver and barrel seem tight in the stock, and I can't detect anything that would be causing this scattergun effect. I know this is the place to check for suggestions, so please fire away. I'm not affluent enough to be spending hundreds of dollars on a $100.00 firearm, so please limit suggestions to how to make this weapon shoot without all the add ons (new barrels, stocks, etc.) The trigger is the one good point on this .22, nice clean break at 3 lbs. Thanks in advance. Glen
