Why mess with pefection? Seriously the 10/22 is a great plinker right out of the box. I had a friend who bought a SS bull barrel new stock, timney trigger and it didn't shoot any better than my stock 10/22. The only thing I might add is the Hogue Rubberized stock is real nice in wet weather or in the summer and your hands sweat. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing.

Fajen adjustable stock, Butler Creek bull barrel and a Nikon rimfire scope. I can't say how it shoots compared to stock cause I never had the scope on it when it was stock (over 10 years) or ever put it on paper (just shot cans and other crap). I like the way it shoots now but it is one heavy beast to walk around with. It weighs more than all of my deer rifles and is longer than my youth model .243. I would have liked to have sling swivel studs on the stock and will eventually add them. I got everything from Midway USA. I will probably put a trigger on it one day since I'm already this far into it.

I've added a recoil buffer, extended mag release, aftermarket extractor, extended bolt handle, and a burris rimfire scope.

I think the recoil buffer and extended mag release have been the most obviously benefial mods. The originial recoil buffer in the gun is a steel pin, and the bolt slams into it after every shot. I've heard of it causing bolt cracking on some guns. The buffer makes a very obvious change in the way the gun feels as the bolt cycles... it feels a lot better with it.

I guess the extractor/ejector was a nice mod too. Instead of just plopping brass on the table right next to me like it used to, it now fires it a good 6-8 feet away.

I never liked bull-barrels on these guns. I want something light and easy to point for shooting at small furry things. Mine has enough accuracy without it that I don't see the point.

I would like to add those as well.

There are times when I would like another one to leave light but really only when I have to carry it around. In reallity, for plinking not target shooting, the bull barrel is over kill, but I'm not going to change it now.

Unless you completely rebuild the gun, anything you add will be purely aesthetic.

Mine looked like this for a while.

Arrow hell of a gun

If you are looking for accuracy the trigger is the biggest thing followed by the barrel any stock that fits you well can be made to work with a little sanding try taking all the pressure off your barrel every thing you could possibly want can be found at brownells.com
