Good for you. I have a 2008 DSP with no mods except a nylon bolt buffer to get rid of the annoying (to me) clink, clink. It's fine like it is. Sports a real scope snob Simmons 22 Mag........Shoots well with Federal Value Pack, too......

If I wanted something that shot better somehow, I'd buy something else that did so, out of the box.

I watched a guy that really knew how to shoot put up a 5 shot .48" group at 25 yards with CCI Minimag 40 grain using a box stock 10-22 with factory irons offhand. They are not inaccurate. I am a plinker not a target shooter and I am happy if I can keep them in a 2" bull at 50 yards. I dont buy target ammo. My old eyes need optics or I would be using peeps. A matter of you cant hit what you cant see. I found that the Leupold FXII Freedom 1.5-4X20 will sit low enough in low rings that you dont need a cheek riser. I also found those bags that strap to the butt stock are very handy and only about $10.

The only add on is a cool little William's peep sight. The US army taught me to love peep sights! The only other things to add are ammo and a squrrile or tin can or even just some clods of whatever. I like the barrel band and the wood stock. I think I may represent a silent but large group of shooters.
I agree completely. I have a 1990 era SS model on a birch stock. That thing has traveled all over the west with me and has a Simmons 4x scope mounted. My other straight up 10/22 is the walnut stocked Sporter Deluxe which also has a Simmons 4x scope. My newest, however, is a takedown with a 16.4 threaded barrel, hi-vis sights, and mounted on an OD green Magpul Backpacker.

All shoot well enough although I did change out the trigger group on the TD with Ruger's BX. That rifle just has the open sights and I like the easier trigger for this one.

Edited to add - I meant to say aftermarket "charging handle" not "receiver" -- big difference!


Yep.. my 43 year old carbine.. has been CPC'd..😁
Looks stock.
Leupolds straight 4 power Rimfire scope on top.
I've never really figured out what kind of stock I have .. beech ?
It's kinda blonde looking.
Just wanted to share the old girl..
Been shooting her a bits this morning.
Just something about a old Ruger carbine barrel band and all... And this one has a million memories.

I have to give lots of credit to Randy at CPC.
His trigger work is outstanding.
This old carbine was always a fun Rifle to shoot.
But after having it CPC'd.
She's a hoot to shoot now.
Just smooth as silk and still looks basically factory stock.

.32 caliber pure lead slug .. for a dovetail filler.
Did that long ago.
At the time didn't know you could buy a filler.
Broke the rear sight on a coon hunt in the creek.
Down in the holler.

Ended up with a stripey factory stock, have most of a 10/22 to put in it. Really want to just buy a new rifle, send it to CPC and use it in the stock.

I'd definitely be sending it to Randy at CPC.
You'll never ever regrets it.
Randy is the best

I have 4 10/22s. #1- heavy bbl, laminated stock, 4-12 scope, Volquartzen hammer,
pretty much a tack driver. #2, Peep sight, DIY trigger job and bolt release, found a walnut carbine stock on Ebay, #3 TRS 25 Red Dot, DIY trigger and bolt stop, walnut carbine stock from gun show, #4 Deluxe rifle, just picked it up yesterday, it'll get a VX-1 2-7 rimfire scope and a Trigger job and bolt release. The 2 carbines are pretty accurate with CCI Tactical ammo, they'll shoot the 10 ring out of the CMP Sporter 22 target at 50 yards, I haven't tested them with a scope and better ammo. The 10/22 is just fun to tinker with.

That sounds really expensive...😁😁😁

The hardest part was deciding what color electrical tape to use.

10/22s seem to be kinda like Lay's potato chips (cant eat just one).
Cant be satisfied with just one
Cant stop messing about with one
My 'one', called Morph, has 3 totally different iterations it can become within a leisurely 1/2hr. of swapping parts and I like each one enough that I should just have 3....

I only have one, a Liberty Delux Sporter.
It shoots plenty good enough to kill cans and whistle pigs which is all I ask of it. If I wanted to shoot itty bitty groups or be in competition I would use a different gun.'

To each his own but I am happy with mine and what I use it for as a 100 percent stock gun, with the exception of a period correct Bushnell scope.
A better scope is tempting and may happen one of these days.

What model Williams peep did you get ??
I will have to absolutely totally agree with you.
The factory Ruger carbine is .... perfection?
I bought my carbean over 40 years ago..
I'm STILL shooting it.
Yes.. I too went down the road of bull barrels and everything ...
And I like them too.
But in the end... I like my CPC'd factory carbean the best.
A million memories..
Yep.. I like the carbine stocks.. and the barrel bands ...😁
