    How important is it to you? If I'm going to update all the internals anyway, seems like it might be worth it to get a machined aluminum trigger housing to replace the stock plastic. What do you think?

    Waste of money IMO. Replace the hammer and polish the rest. Trigger guard isn't going to improve accuracy or even looks.

    +1. For sure, spend your money and effort on the trigger etc.

    Jmho~

    I have both styles of trigger groups, metal and synthetic and both styles work equally well.

    The only modifications i do are, an auto bolt release (modified factory part), a volquartsen exact edge extractor, Volquartsen Target Hammer and a extended magazine release.

    I can hit targets the size of a tennis ball at 100 yards, with a good rest. That is plenty accurate for my needs.

    A ruger 10/22 can be a money pit, if you allow it to become one. :laugh:

    Tell me about it. I've got around $600 into mine and I built it 'on the cheap'.

    I did my own trigger job with a couple sharpening stones and a dremel tool. Took about 20 minutes and now I have 2lb trigger and saved myself some dollars.
