I can't complain at all about my Custom Shop Competition or the Target Lite we have. I have handled a few metal trigger group rifles and I didn't find there to be a huge difference.

Someoneís just unhappy today with the way the world turned out for them. And so is looking back thru distorted memories of their halcyon days.

The 1970s sucked! I remember , I was there. Sure I had a good time, but imho almost everything today is better than it was then. Computer, car, TV, tools, guns, food, etc just not me

Stock, the Marlin 60 is better and cheaper... but it's not a 10/22... and isn't as easily cleaned, disassembled and modified.

If you want a quality 10/22... and want a blueprinted, accurized, fully improved gun that you WISH Ruger would have built... send it to Randy at CPC. If I already had one or more 10/22's, and had the itch for another one, I would just take one of my existing guns, box it up, and SEND IT IN! You'll have a blueprinted gun that is guaranteed to shoot and function better than a brand new one. If you want to go nuts, send it in with an aftermarket barrel. Best money you will ever spend on a 10/22. Absolutely the biggest bang for the buck in the entire world of gunsmithing.

I've sent all six of my guns his way... Well worth it.

I think people tend to paint the past in gold. Ruger's current manufacturing methods are cheaper, faster, more consistent, and attain tighter tolerances. This means less human fitting is required, which means less variance from rifle to rifle. However, one area that has consistently sucked on the modern 10/22's is the factory trigger. This is likely by design for legal reasons. Thankfully, the aftermarket support is vast.

How is the BX trigger pack from Ruger?

Is it an improvement?

Definitely an improvement. If you can't shoot good with a BX, you probably can't shoot. lol

This being said, I bought BX triggers for all of my guns, then decided to send them to CPC. Since the work included a trigger job to the stock trigger assembly, I sent the guns with the stock triggers. After getting the guns back, I sold the BX units on Ebay... except for one, which I kept as a spare.

But, the BX triggers are a big improvement. CPC is better, but the BX isn't going to keep you from being a good shooter.

Good Luck

I've only felt the BX while in it's display package in the store. That's not the ideal way to experience a trigger. Based on that, it was noticeable lighter, with less pre-travel. Creep and over-travel still present. Really, it's what they should install as the standard trigger. Still not great, but definitely an improvement. I have a Custom Shop on the way, which has the BX trigger. I'm expecting that I'll end up replacing it. But I'll give it a fair try first.

I definitely wouldn't buy it as an upgrade for one of MY rifles. Though I could see it being a good compromise for a young or new shooter.

Just bought a brand new 10-22 carbine from Walmart this past Friday. Took it to the range that afternoon. From 25 yards to 100 yards was able to hit everything my old eyes could see. Wasn't trying for groups. 2" gong at 25 yards and a 4 inch gong at 50 and 100. I'm pretty sure when I missed it was me. Used the stock iron sights. Yesterday I put an old 4x32 scope on it. After sighting it in, had 10 shots inside a 1' bull at 25 yards. Can't say if this is any better or worse than older rifles as this is the first 10-22 I've owned. But it's good enough for the girls I go out with.

That is pretty much the point, isnt it; ie, good enough for whachawannado. The OP didnt specify and we have no idea of what expectations, real or not, are being made.
As always, the only way yer gonna tell if the gun And the ammo used in it will serve Your purpose(s) is to try one.
Ive found it to be a personal preference thing, just like in a mate or a kayak paddle.

Randy has worked on hundreds if not thousands of 10/22s over the years. Last word. Period!

Ruger came out with a lot of nice stocks on different models and distributors models so you are not stuck with a beechwood stock if you do not want one...

So if I get one, instead of getting a friggin $60 BX trigger, seems yíall are talkin at me to send it to Randy at CPC for a trigger thatís even better?

My uses would be plinking and squirreling and bunnying. Could Randy set it up appropriate for that? I canít STAND a creepy gritty trigger and Iíve read the BX trigger is lighter but still has some creep.

Other than that I want to keep the gun stock. I have a soft spot for the wood carbines as that was my dadís gun growing up and boy I loved the hell out of it. Other than that I want a Leupold 4x28mm rimfire scope and a leather sling, just like dadís gun. Iíll probably even fit an old flush mag release on it as it looks and feels great with the 10 round rotary mags that I prefer.

What I donít want or need is a bunch of navy SEAL wannabe tacticool stuff. Great if you love it, I think itís ridiculous. I just want a more or less stock classic style 10/22 carbine with a good scope, a good trigger, and a chunk of cow hide dangling from it.
