    The good one to get is the one sold at walmart, correct? what makes it better the ones bought elsewhere? After purchasing, what are the first mods to it that should be done to make it more enjoyable to shoot?

    if you plan on eventually replacing and modding just about everything i'd search a pawn shop first. i got mine with a decent scope at a pawn shop for 145 otd

    yeah if you plan to mod the heck out of it just look for a used one that has the parts you plan on keeping in good shape, basically who cares if the stock is beat to hell if you're gonna replace it anyway.

    20 or 30 round magazine, pistol grip with stock, rails and optics, etc but i don't get into that stuff so much so i can't give specifics for brand names etc.

    the pawn shops here suck. everytime i've went, they've just had garbage that doesn't interest me (revolvers, lever action rifles, bolt action hunting rigs, or shotguns)

    As far as mods, get a bolt buffer. Replace the other stuff slowly as the addiction takes control of your bank account.

    10/22s don't last very long at the pawn shop.

    The aftermarket ones are a little softer. The cushion the blow from the bolt

    Stock would be the first thing I'd trip, followed by (or at the same time as) a different barrel.

    I bought mine from Kmart, years ago (as Kmart no longer sells guns).

    First and best mod I ever got for it was an extended magazine release.

    http://gunaccessories.com/1022/parts.asp

    First item on the page.

    Also have the HK-style peep sights, flash suppressor, vented handguard, and 25rd magazine. :wiggle:
    All except the magazine were from gunaccessories.com.

    Oh, and make sure to use good ammo with it. Last time I used CCI ammo, cause it was cheap, and the damn thing would jam up every 5-10 shots.

    CCI ammo (assuming Mini-Mags since that's what you usually see) is usually pretty good ammo that is used quite often as a baseline for 10/22's. If yours won't fire it, something is likely awry.

    The wallmart one is a good option.

    It really depends on what you are going to do with it and where you want to start.


    Ive got a 10/22T with a decent scope, VQ trigger assembly ($200 :mamoru:), bolt buffer.

    It's like a fucking laser beam.

    I prefer to shoot subsonic ammo.

    With the bolt buffer and long barrel it almost sounds like a silenced gun.

    You really might want to try for a used one, the new ones have plastic trigger guards.

    I haven't seen any evidence that the plastic one is shit or not though. Either way it was designed with an aluminum one, I'd prefer it to stay that way.

    That new "tactical" one or whatnot with the Hogue stock and the 16" T barrel looks like a decent setup if you weren't wanting to build one yourself....

    The bolt to receiver stop pin contact is metal on metal, when the bolt slides back to the rear of the receiver. But it's been debated if using a bolt buffer prolongs life, it's just a cheap feel-good insurance and what most people consider common sense ( including me) to soften the contact. It also makes the action cycling sound less clinky.

    another thing a bolt buffer does is prevent the screws in your base from vibrating loose if you don't use anything to lock them in to place (since I like to remove my scope and shoot iron sights from time to time)

    I have a tuffer buffer off of the board recommendations: http://www.tufferbuffer.com/

    it's simple to install, in theory (that is, no serious mechanical knowledge is needed). but fenagling it in can be a bit tricky.

    It literally just replaces the rear pin slot on the receiver (the large one). I don't recall you mentioning being an epileptic retard, so I imagine you wouldn't have any/much trouble on the install.

    They are like $5...... I've got a Kidd now. It replaced a "tuffer buffer" which I fucked up with solvent. I notice no difference. I didn't notice much of a difference installing one to begin with, though I'm not running a can yet.

    I'd rather spend the $5 on a allen head action screw, as I personally hate flat head screws on guns myself, if you HAD to spend money on something. Biggest bang for you buck would be to read the Superstock forums on RFC and pay potential note of the posters whose names everyone keeps referring to. You would get further with some bedding compound, sandpaper, a Dremel, and a set of balls. The secret to making a 10/22 shoot is de-fucking it from the start, and that just takes time and effort - not high dollar parts.
