    How doe's this gun even fire

    Well I went and bought myself a fancy ruger 1022, with the French walnut stock. It's a thing of beauty, but the trigger pull leaves a lot to be desired. So I went on a 22 specialty sight to see what they were doing for triggers. What I found out was that my bolt needed reworked, a new barrel was in order, I needed a polymer bolt stop. Plus a whole new trigger Assembly. When all said and done it might group as well as my savage. Aren't these forums great.

    Yeah, they'll leave you wanting all the best and make you think anything less is immoral.

    Regarding the 10/22, all you really need is the Volquatsen target hammer. An easy drop in and a huge improvement, all for around $30, I believe.

    Cabela's sells the trigger group for one. Takes about 5-10 minutes to change it out...and you have one heck of a nice trigger. Last time I bought one was about $45....

    The roughness Of a Ruger trigger seems to go away with use. The Rugers that I have owned are .22's: 10/22 Std. Carbine and a few Standard Auto's (4). They all seemed fine to me after a break-in period of 500 rounds.

    A fellow shooter had a much modified Ruger 10/22. He looked at my standard rifle, and said "Ya' know.....I don't know why I wasted so much money on this rifle! Yours (std 10/22) is all you really need!"
    I thought about it for awhile. I guess he's right! If I wanted a better rifle......I'd have bought one!!! Bob
