Simmons 3-9x .22 Mag scope, Leupold Rifleman vert. split rings, I've not fired a shot, too many other rifles, strictly a good buy I didn't let go by.

I have a walnut stocked Blue 22"er that shoots really well, Sightron 3-12x scope.






Dead stock, no mods, no trigger work, no nothing.

DSP
Think the Tech Sights will look kinda clunky on it, though will work fine. On a slim beauty like that Id like to go with the Williams 10/22 rear peep with a suitable height small bead sporting front.
Who'da thought we would ever be talking about a 'retro WW' model!

I like the sleepers!

To be contrary, in my testing the biggest increase in accuracy came from putting a scope on mine.

Mine is a Dick’s Sporting Goods stock carbine; I take some amusement to the politics involved and took solace in the sub $200 clearance price. The Wally World is the better deal, I think.

I didn’t find accuracy improved at all with my trigger upgrade, or did I expect it to. It makes shooting a lot more enjoyable though!

My sleeper project is slowing down but I bet you fellas can answer a question I have:

No doubt a custom barrel with a match cut chamber and precisely tuned bolt are needed to lop off the last inch of inaccuracy, and they surely work in harmony, but...

Which alone is most important?
1. Match cut chamber and custom work on a decent stock barrel
2. Simply buy an aftermarket barrel with generic match chamber
3. Tuned bolt and headspacing

Of course the safe answer is “do all three and with luck get that 1/2 inch group at 50 yards” but out of curiosity, how do all these changes rank alone and then in harmony?

My latest “upgrade” is having found a local farm store that had RWS Rifle Match on clearance for $3.89 a box. I know- send it to Randy. I am curious about the magic.

I know not fighting my oem trigger helped me make better groups (didnt change the inherent accuracy but allowed me to get closer to that).
The bolt with all the bells and whistles? Cant prove it made a diff for me but it has 'all the right stuff' so I cant blame my bad shooting on 'maybe its the oem bolt'.
Oem barrel? Lowest cost hunk o' barrel with sloppy chambering to load, shoot, eject about anything somebody sticks in it. Some shoot surprisingly well in spite of that. That some actually get better with a set-back and rechambering shows what a better chamber can accomplish.
So, get a better quality barrel with a better done bore and a properly done chamber right off instead of trying to make the proverbial silk purse from a sows ear.
Then, if you are like me, go shoot and find out the bigger than anticipated groups size is all you and not the gun.
Well, it must be the ammo.....

I have one of those Walmart 22" rifles, purchased 15 or so years ago. During a "scope dance" I finally recently traded the original BSA 4X32 scope for this Leupold 3X9 VX1 scope that it really deserves with Burris steel rimfire rings. I've always really liked the sleek look of that stock and the darker look of this one particularly. I think I lightened the trigger spring on this one, since a BX trigger would have spoiled the "silver".

I was in Washington this weekend and stopped in at the Sportsman’s Warehouse and saw they have a stainless 22” 10/22 with a modular synthetic stock on sale for $269.

I have a Walmart Special and have only swapped out to PowerCustom Hammer for better trigger pull. It’s not my favorite 10/22 or favorite 22 that I own but it’s nice than the basic carbine.

Well, thank you, Buckweet, the OP, for this thread and for causing me to give my Wally World 10/22 a little love and range time. I've had one put away and kept it stock for the longest time since I always thought it was the prettiest of the 10/22's with that longer barrel and no barrel band. But I took it out to shoot it after you started this thread and I was a little disappointed in it. So, I thought, "hey, I've modified the rest of my 10/22's, why not this one?"

So, I took it down this week, lightened the trigger from it's stock 5.4# to a nice 2.8#, did the autobolt release modification, and added a Tacticool22 extended magazine release, in silver of course ($20 from Amazon). I had a prior 1.5" best at 50 yards (can't remember what ammo), but today shot 3 of 4, 0.75" five-shot groups prone with a front bipod at 50. The ammo today was a new one for me, CCI subsonic, but the rifle seemed to like it.

Now I wonder what it would do if the barrel was free-floated? Hmmm.


Some odd things I noticed while I had it tore down, however, is that the receiver is stamped with a logo, "Empiss" or "Empiso" or something like that, and the trigger is not like my other Rugers; much more blocky with no "cutout" on the sides and heavier. Anyone know what the story on these parts are?

Wouldnt be surprised if you can reduce the groups even more with a good bench and bags/rest setup.
Is that the 'torsion spring mod'? If so, how do I get one?

No, I used a technique where the hammer "notch" is filed to be closer to the VQ Match Hammer notch like the photo below which was taken from the linked video. The linked video has a great link to describe it: the trigger discussion begins at 6:15.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aQcnOjUizw

I've done several triggers in this manner and have been very happy with the results. Please do all the function tests after this modification to be sure the gun is safe, particularly slamming the butt down on a cocked rifle to make sure the hammer doesn't fall during a "drop".
