I just got a 1022 carbine and I want to learn some simple smithing. Parts change out that sort of stuff. The rifle will be used for plate shoots with iron sights so it needs to be handy and reliable. Any thoughts or ideas for me? I did the search and found the other boards. There seems to be so much you can do to a 1022.

two things, replace the extractor with a Volquartzen, and stone or polish the hammer, sear, etc. go to here,http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/
and get all the skinny.

Just shoot the hell out of it and you'll love it forever. Mine is 18 years old and still factory original.

The least you should do is replace the extractor and hammer with the Volquartsen parts. Then buy a bunch of different ammo to find whatever works the best for you. You may want to break in your action with some high velocity stuff (high velocity = anything that breaks the sound barrier). This usually helps the action settle in and you won't have failures to feed/extract.

Of the cheap stuff, my 10/22 likes the CCI Blazers. I only shoot Wolf MT out of it now (Volquartsen 20" SS barrel).
