Woe is me. Shooting offhand, my TD is as accurate as my Henry and CZ. Hopefully when I get my 10/22 back from CPC and add a scope then it will be my most accurate rifle.

I did get two new triggers for my TDs. They were built to be backpack rifles. However if one of you out shot me with a your TDs, that would not be a surprise.

10/22 Takedown Results

89 degrees 90% humidity light winds out of the east.
Ruger 10/22 Takedown
Kidd Trigger Job Kit
JWH Bolt
Nikon Scope/Leupold Rings, TacSol Base
Ammo CCI SV & RWS
15 yards, 40 rounds
Caldwell Rest




It REALLY liked the RWS!

(NOT)





Clearly the safest place to be when shooting a 10/22 TakeDown is pretty much right in front of it. I see a few people saying how the rifle is "OK"

15 yards 15 YARDS Tomorrow I'll shoot some 50 yard groups for you nice folks. Industry Insider... Any remarks?

Well it aint an Annie

But here are a few things that iv done to improve the accuracy.

Make sure the action and stock is properly aligned. Those screws on the face of the receiver do that. Its more than a cosmetic improvement, out of alignment puts torque pressure on the action and barrel.

Get the barrel ring/ nut as tight as you can. So that you have to loosen it to takedown the rifle.

Put a pressure pad under the front of the barrel.

Get the barrel and receiver attachment screws tight.

If you dont have one, get a mag pul stock.

Check the crown with a qtip.

And last but not least , put a stronger recoil spring in, that bullet needs to be slammed as deep into the chamber as possible.

Will do! It's on the bench now for more scope... I took the barrel band off too. Stand by to stand by!

Also, I found out as many others have as well, making the connection just a bit more snug than recommended helps. The black plastic stock is ugly as can be and I would love to replace it with something wood, but it holds the barrel snugly and I think this particular rifle likes that.
Thank you for the advice. I have a TD coming in the mail and will definitely try that!

Thanks everyone for the positive experiences and sharing your solutions!

I know I've said this before in other threads about the TD. IMO the TD's seem to shoot best in Hogue stocks. I have a theory that it has something to do with the rubber Hogue stock being able to help dampen the strange harmonics made by the TD. I can't prove this but I have tried many different stocks on 4 different TD's and every single one of them shot best in a Hogue stock. That being said they're still TD's........

Interesting! I still have one. Figure it'll kill me trying to make it shoot.

So interesting - I have the Backpacker, and when I take it out, I always end up smiling. Factory FO irons, it's limitations are the ones imposed by my vision and form. It does exactly what I bought it for. And fun? Loads!

Exactly, it sounds like you have realistic expectations of what a 10/22 TD is capable of.

I can hit a dime at 100 yards with cci standards...granted in near perfect conditions at a range, not to mention I have way too much into it, haha! Kidd 2 stage trigger (gets moved to whatever rifle I'm target shooting with)
Timney single stage trigger for hunting
Dlask 12.5" barrel, bolt assembly, compensator, rail
Magpul stock
Vortex 4x16 scope
Stock reciever

I can hit a dime @100 yards with all 3 of my heavily modified TD's. I don't know how many shots it will take but I'll definitely hit it eventually.......

Maybe the reason I can't get less than 1/2 moa @100 yards with my TD's is because the barrel is too long.......???

I did what I could for my TD.
Kidd drop in trigger, tuned it best I could. Wasn’t satisfied.
Gave it to my wife for fun plinking, shooting steel plates and such.
Fixed 4x scope, easy to shoot. Very light. She loves it.

Found a near new Deluxe Sporter with a nice scope. Much better.

The TD is a fun little rifle, but it is what it is.
