    The great 10/22 Soft Shoe How To --

    Sooooooo -- in 1982 I bought my 10/22 and now it time --

    Last year I stuffed it in this --

    https://www.midwayusa.com/product/25...ynthetic-black

    No bedding or nut-in -- Now when I find a .920 barrel - I might have a problem ?

    The factory trigger is --



    I bought this stuff two years ago --



    So with the trigger assembly apart --

    Ya-know that annoying rocker thingy to hold open or close the bolt --



    That little bump has to go -- its up-side-down in the next pic - it was radius just a bit -- not left flat --



    After a test fit -- now rock the thingy to lock the bolt open - then just pull the bolt back to close --- just like on a real rifle --

    Next --

    Not the best factory finish on the bolt --



    #600 emery & Mothers Aluminum polish & 172 hours later --



    Next page !

    My newer 10/22 had BBQ type paint inside the receiver. Once it was removed things went smoother

    I love my 10/22's. They are a blast to shoot. Making that piece so that it functions like a normal rifle bolt release is essential. Wish Ruger would do that right from the factory. I replaced my firing pin, bolt handle and springs, bolt buffer, and extractor with Kidd parts. The bolt buffer makes my gun a lot quieter as it is no longer metal to metal contact after each shot. The stock firing pin has a little wobble in it which prevents it from striking the casing with as much force as the Kidd model. That makes my gun go bang every time. The Kidd extractor really tosses spent casings. If you haven't already done so, I would look at those upgrades.

    I installed a "Tougher-Buffer" last year -- I love it -- in fact I'm wait-in on an e-mail from them for the price of 15 of them for my / our arsenal --

    Kidd upgrades -- I gotta look now --

    Sooo -- this morning I found out -- my barrel was loose --



    Check & re-tighten yours --

    Make sure you re-clock it properly --



    I'm not to concerned with shallow-ing the sear -- so this is OK for now --



    Hammer sear contact nice and shinny now --



    Hammer face before --



    After --

    I never liked the shape & feel of the stock trigger --



    A little contouring - reshaping and shortening --



    Sear polish --

    I see all these boobs on youtube fumbling with putting back the bolt -- why not hold the spring with this ?



    Me -- I use a long thin screwdriver -- then drop in the bolt --



    A nice improvement with just a little time --
