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.

Yeah, but just imagine how much better he feels about himself! :D

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 .

Ruger 10/22 , Israeli made FAB Defense 10 /22 Stock , ER SHAW 20" Factory Taper Barrel, Ruger BX 2.5 Pound match trigger , Sight Mark Wraith 4X32X50 Digital Day / Night Scope .

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.

I really get a good laugh when those from the "unwashed side" question the motives behind replacing the die struck factory Ruger 10/22 extractor, which is fraught with burrs and sharp edges from the stamping die shearing during production.
Is it any wonder why there are at least 6, yes SIX, aftermarket producers of replacement extractors for the Ruger 10/22 rifles? All will perform better than the factory abomination, but there is one that really outperforms all the others and that's the one I prefer and use exclusively.
I will NOT discuss which extractor that is in an open forum such as this one only because there is at least "one too many" critics here who don't know diarrhea from good brown gravy as far as to how an exceptional product can enhance the performance of a favorite firearm.

If I had to guess, I'd say that Ruger doesn't include a bolt release on their 10/22 firearms due to a perceived liability on their end. And since they sell enough of the 10/22 variants, any loss of revenue to aftermarket parts such as this I'm sure doesn't hurt their bottom line much.

As far as aftermarket parts, it's nice for the end user to have the ability to add or change components as they see fit; all it takes is some mechanical understanding to install parts that can improve functionality and reliability, contribute to ease of use, and sometimes even greater accuracy potential.

About being a "lousy" shot...do you wear corrective lenses? I've had astigmatism in both eyes for many years, and it wasn't until recently that I became serious about wearing glasses for both normal and close vision; I became tired of not being able to focus on street signs until I was right upon them or having blurry vision after just 10 minutes of using a computer or smart device.

As a result of using the proper corrective lenses my accuracy with firearms has improved - now that I can see the target clearly!

'Got any pics of your 10/22 to share?

This is my 10/22. CDNN Sports had it on sale in the back of a magazine a few years ago before everything got crazy. I like wood stock even if they are a little heavy. With the inexpensive Tasco scope I have been able to keep the squirrels off my bird feeder. My 73 year old eyes were never very acute but the squirrels don’t complain anymore. Just hate tree rats.
I love my 10/22 the rifle for everyone. You can make into whatever your heart desires. I bought a BX15 magazine because it looks cool but usually I stay with the 10 rounder, it doesn’t get in the way.
I do have stove pipe problems from time to time but the modifications I have made make them rare now.

What did you find to be the cause of your occasional stovepipes, and what specific modifications/changes or additions did you use to decrease them?

When I disassembled it for cleaning I had a terrible time getting the bolt out. The charging handle was extremely hard to pull back against the return spring. Lubrication did not help so I purchased a replacement that had a coated rod and a bit larger handle that was stainless to match the barrel. This helped most of all. A BX trigger with a better ejector and a new extractor and a bit of polishing around the ejection port and it works much better.
Of course it is still rim fire ammo so some problems could be traced to that.

I'm glad to hear that you've pretty much got your problems resolved!

Rimfire ammo is a variable that sometimes produces undesirable operation or malfunctions, but at least it's a well known contributor to such issues :)

BTW I like the polished stainless model CZ 75 B in your avatar. I'm fond of CZ's - and have one just like it ;)
