I saw Kidd, Volquartzen, and Briley all for $6-7.

I am going to shoot the BDIHATL (Boy Do I Have Alot to Learn) 10/22 again soon to see what I can do with the tightened up factory take down screw.

Then I want to take it apart and clean, replace any parts worth replacing. The takedown screw seems a no-brainer. Are there any other parts I should get at the same time to max my shipping? Vblock? I'm not sure if I want to dink with the trigger yet.

This carbine will be a scoped and otherwise stock(ish) :rolleyes: field gun.

I like the VQ ones the best because they are a little shorter. You may want to ad an auto bolt release just to make things a little easier. Also some type of aftermarket buffer and oversized receiver pins to hold your trigger group tight.

Bearcat tear bids 10 years on his stock takedown screw, a respectful time to be sure.
Then Cracked Cornish dropped the big five-oh, yes, 50 years with the original takedown screw.

I am good with that, thank you. Stock unless it's broken or is an inexpensive upgrade.

Speaking of breaking things, I broke the barrel band. Better go back and read that tutorial again.

Oversize trigger housing pins, a buffer, and an auto bolt release. Thanks Nick.

Don't take the length for granted. I have a vintage walnut DSP stock that the ruger hex head takedown screw was just a thread too long and was bottoming out just at the 17-18 poundish mark. Just enough to where I didn't realize what happened. So here I go trying to take out the slop. Discovered the problem and shortened by one or two threads and now it is fine at 17 lbs. Also had an older Hogue stock that was not tightening up properly and noticed that it don't have a metal ecustation and I guess it compressed a little over the years. Shortened the action screw and now it is better than ever. If the action screw is way too long it is apparent but if it is just a hair too long it can be a head scratcher sometimes. For me anyway!

worthless mods, save your money
We're talking around $15 for all 3. You can do your own ABR and buffer for free and then just buy the trigger pins for $5 - $6. I wouldn't say worthless. The auto bolt release may not make your rifle any more accurate, but it definitely makes it easier to release the bolt. Buffer gets rid of the "clanking" noise that the 10/22 makes. And the oversized trigger pins actually hold your trigger group straight and don't fall out when you pull your receiver out of the stock. So while none of these things may make a 10/22 more accurate, they do make it more pleasurable to shoot IMO.

Well if the only upgrades we did to our 10/22's was to improve accuracy then we would all have some pretty plain looking rifles.......

Continued on "Boy Do I Have A Lot to Learn

Two threads going. The other thread is sort of a newbie oldie exploring a 10/22 for the first time.

Thanks for all the opinions and advice, all. If you need a laugh come follow my mistakes on the other thread. There are pictures too. And if you read this far I broke the barrel band by trying to stretch it to "pop it off". After seeing how it is supposed to come off I feel especially shamed.:eek:
