When I learned to call flyers, my groups tightened up a lot !
I found it sold by Palmetto State Armory and Guns.com. For some reason I can never upload anything from Guns.com but Palmetto State Armory can be reached at palmettostatearmory.com.
Hope this helps.
@jmr40 gave you some great advice , shoot it before you make modifications, you just never that the barrel on that rifle is a bug hole shooter.
OH, btw, you may get sucked in and hooked like an addict. Modifying 10/22's is addictive and expensive and a $200 dollar rifle can easily run up to over a thousand bucks. So if you cannot afford it buy the marlin. They are just as accurate out of the box and a great rifle too.
Rear of bolt after belt sander then hand sanding to 400 grit.
400 grit to simply polish and reduce cleaning time.
Quick drawing to explain hook angle. Positive is heavy, neutral ideal, negative dangerous or non-functioning.
Borrowed schematic of hammer and how to set up for hook. Double check hole diameter then use a drill bit 1/2 the diameter.
Hammer set up to demonstrate. I use tiny hobby files followed by a stoning.
10/22 is ammunition sensitive and I was able to obtain sub 1" groups at 50 yards from a new stock Ruger 10/22 (Model Collector #3) while capturing every 10 shot group out of the box with the following modifications outlined in this thread - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/real-world-plinking-25-yard-22lr-ammo-comparison-with-hot-barrel-ruger-10-22-collector-3-break-in.859106/page-2#post-11310458
Barrel WAS NOT bore brushed during the 3000 round testing, just Hoppes #9 and patched with Viva paper towel (Rifling inspected with bore scope to be clean without leading)
Free-floated barrel using shim under v-block - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/real-world-plinking-25-yard-22lr-ammo-comparison-with-hot-barrel-ruger-10-22-collector-3-break-in.859106/page-2#post-11310413
Secured rear of receiver using a strip of electrical tape - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/real-world-plinking-25-yard-22lr-ammo-comparison-with-hot-barrel-ruger-10-22-collector-3-break-in.859106/page-2#post-11351163
Thorough disassembly, regular cleaning and routine lubrication ensured 100% primer ignition of all ammunition tested (Except Winchester M22)
CCI Standard Velocity and Aguila 40 gr CPRN produced most consistent small groups
As others already suggested, trigger break-in/trigger polish job/trigger replacement will definitely help
Scopes used were Bushnell Trophy 3-9x40mm, Leupold 3-9x40mm, Bushnell Dusk & Dawn 6-18x50mm
For less than the price of the 10/22 target model, I suggest you check out Thompson Center T/CR22. It is Ruger 10/22 component compatible with accurized barrel/trigger and comes with integral scope rail and last round bolt hold open magazine - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/thompson-center-t-cr22-real-world-25-50-yard-22lr-ammo-comparison-break-in.864241/#post-11405528
T/CR22 is less ammunition sensitive and produced smaller groups than my "modified" 10/22 out of the box.
