Thinking of buying a 10/22, questions?



Log in to see fewer ads
I bought two Ruger 10/22 riifles around 2006, one was the budget Walmart model and the other was a factory fancy one with the stainless bull barrel, and laminated stock. I also had a CZ 452 bolt gun. For some reason after about 2 years of shooting them the Rugers started to jamb with particular brands of ammo, then with everything.

I kept them clean, and well lubricated. Seems that when I went online people were recommending that I replace some parts in the bolt assembly with after market ones. I decided to just sell the guns as my CZ worked for me. Read that the CEO of Ruger at that time was cutting costs and quality of the company quite a bit. He is no longer at the helm.

Since that time other makers have come out with .22 rimfire rifles, like TC, Winchester, Savage, etc. Any suggestions on what I should purchase next?

I mostly bench shoot for target shooting. My Henry was sold as lever actions are awkward for bench shooting and my CZ was stolen in a burglary.

Thanks.

The best thing to stop jams and stovepipes in a 10/22 is to get a Volquartsen extractor they are very cheap and will solve a lot of reliability issues.

Also get the Volquartsen hammer it will reduce the trigger pull substantially

To be honest though try to use slightly higher grade ammo like SK or CCI you will tend to get less hiccups.

if you plan to do bench shooting at 50 or 100 yards a 10/22 will not be super accurate when compared to a CZ, sure you can get a lucky 10/22 or buy an aftermarket barrel and make it as accurate as a CZ

Depends if you like tuning things up or just want a bench rifle, if it where me I would go for the CZ and get a good scope

but there are many other options those much wiser than myself may well offer.

For bench at 50 & 100yds, a stock 10/22 isn't really the best choice in my opinion.

If, on the other hand, you like to tinker and want to upgrade, then it's a nice starting platform. That's the approach we've taken, small steps as our skills develop.

Send it to CPC for his full tune up. Only around $200,and he does the ENTIRE GUN... trigger, bolt, laps/rechambers/crowns the barrel, squares the barrel to the receiver, blueprints everything. Will drill a cleaning hole in the end of the reciever for free, tool steel CUSTOM FIT extractor is a $10 upgrade, he installs a nylon buffer and installs slightly oversize pins that won't fall out. It's the best deal in all of gunsmithing! He had mentioned retiring this summer, so don't wait around too long. Gun is GUARANTEED to run perfectly and will be MUCH more accurate.

.. and to the O.P. = the above reply is tongue-in-cheek snarkyness... you say it's been cleaned.. nope.. not unless you SCRUB the Chamber...

This little gem of a Chamber Brush with some Hoppes#9 will solve a BUNCH of your feed issues... Chamber MUST BE SCRUBBED!

Buy one... https://gunsmithertools.com/shop/ols...mber-tool-gl1p

And as stated above the OEM Extractors are a very weak link... buy one of these and/or have it installed ..

https://www.coolguyguns.com/KIDD-Extractor_p_14.html

The other KEY THING with 10/tweekie2's is the Lube... this is the best thing you can use bar none...

See post above. The 10/22 guru has spoken. Take heed. Chaser tells it like it is. Seriously!

they were probably having the dull extractor issue. its a $10 part and is easy to replace. the only rugers i have with original extractors are a mkII from '82 with about 16k rounds through it, and a '79 10/22 with an unknown round count. at some point between 82 and the early 90s it seems that they started making the extractors out of a softer material. a tool steel extractor fixes that issue. except for the mkII from 1982, i put an aftermarket in it at one point and it had issues. so i put its original back in and it went back to functioning perfectly.

Will upgrade the rifle.

Thanks for the information, will start looking for a new 10/22 soon, and put in the upgrades. This also explains why my former Rugers started jamming on me after awhile back in the day.

This is the 10/22 forum. Perhaps the OP should post on the TC and CZ forums to ask about other semi auto 22. Or the general forum for more ideas. I think he can do better. There is the old Browning. There was a different TC a few years ago (seemed good) and best ever Wearherby XXII before that.
