    Who did something nice for their Ruger 10-22 to celebrate?
    I've had mine for about 2 years and it has always given me problems. Yesterday, I decided that I would do some research/work on it. I went to the range today to test it and when I was checking in, noticed the date.
    Quite proper since it worked better today than it has since new. TBH, I was getting ready to trade it for a Hi-Point/Red Ryder/slingshot/blowgun/burrito. Now, I want to invest some $ into it. Feels good.

    Happy 10/22 to you too!

    While not specifically for the date, I just installed a brass shim kit! Really smoothed out the trigger. Now just need to shoot it!

    I have 2 10/22s. Did the trigger work myself and breech first cleaning holes. Other than that they are plain jane scoped 10/22's. I got them a few friends without realizing the date. S&W M&P15 .22, GSG 1911 .22 and a Taurus 1911. Im sure they will all become good friends...

    Another reason America is the greatest country on Earth...silly Europeans with their day/month naming scheme can never celebrate 10-22!

    I own a 10/22 and it shoots just fine, but I prefer my Savage Mk III for .22LR. The 10-22 is a great platform to play with though.

    nothing wrong with 10/22, but I like my CZ bolt action.

    I've been looking into getting a bolt rimfire and a 455 Varmint or American .22lr/17hmr combo are on my short list.
