    Well I put a new BX trigger in but I had to move my Volquartsen bolt release to the new trigger housing. Don’t know why Ruger doesn’t make it standard. Then I put in the Volquartsen extractor and firing pin kit. I am just about to get my rifle like I like it. Now if it would only hit where I am aiming. It can’t possibly be because I am a lousy shot.

    What was wrong with the stock bolt Firing Pin & extractor? My 1964 Ruger 10/22 has Millions of rounds thru it. It's still accurate as the day I purchased it for $56.00 at JC PENNEY in 1964 about 5 years ago I replaced the Trigger with the BX Trigger its crisp clean break is about 2.6 pounds the old trigger was between 5 & 6 Pounds, I tightened up my 50 yard & 100 Yard groups by a half-inch with just a BX trigger replacement. Some of the Nut Jobs on Rim Fire Central have 3 & 4 grand in their Ruger 10 / 22 and still cant group any tighter than the stock off the shelf 10/22. I just laugh at them and the money they wasted!
    $265 for a stock Ruger 10 /22,
    $375 for a trigger
    $450 for a receiver
    $400 for a barrel
    $375 for a bolt
    $250 for a charging handle, Firing pin, Extractor
    $850 for a scope
    $200 for Scope mounts
    $375 for a stock
    $3,540 for a Ruger 10/22 that cant group any tighter than a bone stock 10/22 with a $31 4x 32mm scope and the free mounts that came with it at 50 yards. LOL LOL :)

    If anyone, in their right mind, believes anything in Post #2, as far as those fictitious prices, you need to get more powerful meds. Those are all "bloated" to try and make a very "feeble", untrue, point. So sad someone like that is even allowed to partake in a decent forum.

    That's the main thing that matters, getting it the way YOU personally want it to be.
    I set up this rifle to purposely shoot CCI Quiet ammunition. It has a Volquartsen "Firefly" bolt, a Feddersen barrel with threaded muzzle and a Volquartsen trigger. And, why oh why would I do that? Because I am able to, that's why. :p

    Nice setup what brand of suppressor do you have? I have a Gem Tech for my Mark III 22/45 and really like it.

    The one I have was made south of here in Chippewa Falls, WI. Made by Lauer Manufacturing, the same fella that makes and sells Dura-Coat.
    His store is like walking into a bank vault. You gotta look in the window and if you don't look suspicious, they'll buzz you in through the door. He's got NFA toys in his store that will make ya "drool".

    This is the 10/22 I use for hunting at Day / Night from 50 -100 yards mostly over bait .I can deliver a CCI 40 grain copper plated hollow point Velocitor with precision accuracy to a Feral Pigs or Coyotes Skull. Very little muzzle flash, Very lite recoil , low muzzle blast make follow up shots on other Hogs and Coyotes a breeze .I professionally eradicate Feral Hogs & Coyotes from County, City, State, Federal property. Golf Courses , Airports , Residential Neighborhoods US Forestry , Farms , Ranches etc.. The .22 LR is used often as there is no over penetration of this round many people don't hear it and in many cases close proximity to Dwellings ,Aircraft , Farm equipment , Farm Animals , People .I have even used a cross bow equipped with night vision. I have Personally in one years time killed over 300 Feral Hogs and well over 200 coyotes . I have shot and killed over 100 Feral Hogs with this 10 /22 and well over 75 coyotes with one shot from a .22lr . Some of these Hogs weighed from 400 to 300 pounds and a single head shot killed each of them . The .22lr rimfire CCI 40 grain copperplated Hollow Point Velocitor is the fastest most accurate .22lr round of its weight on the market .

    I was looking into the Gem Tech and the Sparrow, and one or the other will be my next purchase. I really don't need to worry about disturbing neighbors when taking out vermin around here as we're surrounded with 360 acres of timber.

    Also, it's really nice to have the ability of making these Ruger 10/22 barreled actions much more stable in a very nice wood stock of choice, rather than need to settle for a "FUGLY" piece of cheap plastic. As for me, I'm lucky to have a lucrative business, with very good customers, so I don't have to accept cheap plastic fugly stuff:

    This stock supports my KIDD barreled action much more securely now, after I installed a rear tang for securely stabilizing the barreled action solidly in the fine Boyd's laminated stock purchased at dealer cost. Here's the fixture I made being used in the machinery I purchased. Being an indentured toolmaker for almost 17 years paid off much better than taking orders every day from some Master Sergeant 10 times smarter that a follow-along grunt:

    Now, my 10/22 clone set-up is based in a much more solid platform with two action draw-down screws bedded in 101101 steel bedding compound, instead of an unknowing owner who only uses one screw, and it will out shoot any other 10/22 surrounded by a fugly stock, on this continent, hands down. Especially those with plastic stocks and owners that can only afford Remington Thunderbolt ammunition on sale at Walmart.
