Latest Aquisition


December 20, 2011, 10:05 PM
I've been borrowing a friend's 10/22 for a few months, and the other day I texted him and offered to buy it from him, because I've been enjoying it so much. He said he would think about it.

That was a few days ago. Tonight as we're hanging out, he tells me "Merry Christmas" and hands me some scope rings. I was mystified for a bit, until he said "You already have the other half of your present."


It's a stock 10/22, nothing fancy except for the auto bolt release. I don't want to crap it up with some useless Archangel furniture, but I would love to mess around with different iron sights, maybe get an extended mag release... what all modifications should I look into?

I'm frisky as a squid on Tuesday!

Tech-sights...just get'em, you'll probably want the TSR-200 model.

A better trigger, some 1 1/4" sling swivels, and a good sling (GI web or 1907).

Any suggestions on specific trigger mods, henschman? Dmitri, why would you choose the TSR200 over the TSR100?

Nice guy. Congratulations on the affordable gold standard 22.

For me the reasoning was this:
-TSR-200 adjustable for elevation at rear sight.
-TSR-200 allows for the "Insert Ready Aperture System".

As well as reviews and such I had read. The TSR-200 just seems to give you the most flexability. Not to say the TSR-100 would not be a top notch sight, its really just your choice

I think those Keystone thumbhole stocks are pretty sweet. I'd see about getting one.

Congrats on the new rifle.

Put a decent scope and a Volquartsen trigger group in it and you'll have a great little rifle. The trigger was the best upgrade I ever did to any of mine. If you wanna go a bit further, put a bull barrel and a laminate stock on it.

BTW you got a cool friend. Keep him around.

This isn't the first gun he's given me. He bought me the Rossi 972 for a wedding present. :)

Does he need more friends LOL.

I concur, does he need more friends?

I say leave it alone for now and figure out what you can give him in return!
