    It does really well. I use standard velocity stuff to plink with and let the kids practice with. I haven't found a brand it doesnt like yet.

    I agree. If I ever load up something "snazzy" it's for my enjoyment. The 10/22 couldn't care less...

    I've been building my "Three Red Ruger .22s" set for over a couple years now and I'm almost finished: a Ruger Charger-10/22 SBR (with tax stamp) with PMACA chassis, Ruger SR22P, and Ruger Mk-IV. All red parts are anodized aluminum or Cerakoted metal or plastic, with the exception of the MK-IV grips--but I'm looking for a suitable anodized set of those. All 3 feature the same anodized-tube red-dot scope.

    I've never ran standard velocity through mine...guess I need to try it.

    I may be a bit obsessive with my builds sometimes...

    There's part of me that wants to do a ground up 10/22, but I already have two of the things!

    Took my new collector series Ruger 10/22 out and fired it. I was surprised by how quiet it was shooting 40 grain Rem Thunderbolts. The bolt release is a PIA though and I am not happy with that stubby little mag release. Ordered off eBay a Ruger BX trigger a few weeks ago, along with a Tactical Solutions extended lever mag release, a Volquartsen auto bolt release plate, and a packet of rubber bolt buffer pins. Ruger stuck a $25 gift card in the box with my rifle, so I got the modular butt pad with the high cheek rest, which just came in. Went by the PX and they had Ruger 10/22 mags for $18 each so I bought 2 more.

    I pulled the BX trigger apart and polished just about everything, replacing the bolt release plate with the Volquartsen and the mag release with the Tactical Solutions one. I also disassembled the OEM trigger and polished just about everything, setting the bolt release plate aside. I compared the Volquartsen plate with the stock plate and then filed away the difference in the hole that holds the bolt back. It took a couple of tries, but that plate now works just like the Volquartsen one, which is how Ruger should have designed it in the first place. Just so much better when you can lock the bolt back and then pull back on the bolt and it releases.

    As far as I can tell, I can not find a part of the OEM trigger that looks any different than the parts in the BX. However, after installing both triggers and dry firing, the OEM trigger has more travel than the BX causing it to be a much harder trigger pull. It must be at least 5 pounds of pull, even after the polishing. And that BX is now somewhere between 2 and 3 pounds of pull. It is almost too light and with no takeup, you just have to think about pulling the trigger and it will fire. Not sure what I will do with the old trigger now, maybe see if I can fine tune it better, or maybe change some of the springs too.

    I found a Vortex Eagle 1-6x24 that I picked up when they were on sale for $225, and some UTG rings with Picatinny QD mounts that were for an AR that work with the new high cheek piece. I will get some photos up in the next day or so.

    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    Try E Arthor Brown, they have all the information on required parts for the M1 Carbine tribute in one place

    https://www.eabco.com/m1_carbine_ruger_1022_tribute.htm

    They also have a Reisling tribute, but the info for it is kind of scattered around.
