I think I'm finally done customizing my 10/22. Or should I say, THIS 10/22. The last two mods I finally finished today. I had used a Boyd's Evolution SS stock for the the past couple years, but I found over time that the LOP was just a smitch too short. I opted this time for the Boyd's Rimfire Thumbhole stock which gives a little more length forward and on the LOP. I also like the fact that I get a better cheek weld with this style of stock as opposed to the Evolution which has a pronounced dip on the top of the stock where the cheek would normally rest. The final mod was the addition of a Ruger BX trigger group. I was hoping for a lighter trigger pull than my current stock trigger. Even though I had stoned and polished the sear and hammer in the old group, it was still a tad on the heavy side. Although I don't have a trigger gauge, I can easily tell that the trigger pull is at least a couple pounds lighter than before. It breaks very crisply and with much less effort. I'm thinking I may need to swap out the auto bolt release however. The bolt WILL lock back in place, but in order to release it, you have to pull back on the charging handle while simultaneously pushing up on the bolt release. Not really convenient if you ask me, and I'm not sure why Ruger would do this unless it was over some sort of safety concern. My Volquartsen auto bolt release requires only pulling back on the charging handle and releasing it for the rifle to go into battery. Ah well.
