    What are good internal upgrades to consider? But would probably not need internal upgrades as is but just wondering on that side. Also what AR type chassis's would y'all recommend? I'm thinking of what I'm going to do after my first range visit & start shooting it more.

    You can replace everything on a “normal” 10/22, even the receiver. Not sure about the latter with a takedown model though. Many will replace the trigger parts, that’s probably the best modification and can make a big difference. An extended bolt handle helps versus the small factory part. I have an aftermarket bolt in one of mine but it’s a high-accuracy build; for most shooters the factory bolt is fine. I use Kidd parts but others are good too.

    Lots of chassis available - Magpul, Nordic, etc., I have no preference since I don’t care for that style.

    I am not a big fan of AR stocks on a 10/22 but to each their own... and the nice thing about about the 10/22's is you can build them how ever you like.

    Do you have a scope? A red dot? These would be my first aquisitions. With quick detach mounts you can switch between them quickly without loosing zero.


    For internal parts I think the automatic slide release is what I appreciate the most. I put the extended magazine release on but have not found it to offer a lot... for me at least.

    For a plinker I am pleased with the factory trigger. For my heavy barrel target 10/22 I really appreciate the Volquartsen adjustable trigger. It is too light for general shooting... in my opinion at least.

    I prefer to mod my own, but it's not for everyone.
    If this interests you, I suggest this simple internal mod: bolt release mod. So simple, and results improve the shooting experience significantly. An advanced one is the trigger mod.
    The great thing about the 10/22 is that replacement parts are readily available (if I mess them up).

    And indeed, probably should, from my experience.

    Infact save yourself the pain and just buy and assemble the aftermarket parts. The only factory parts of a 10/22 that I'd keep would be the mag detent and release.

    To the OP. Shoot it and see what you don't like. You don't need to tick off every one else's "cool" book.

    An aftermarket trigger (VQ or Kidd) will improve things hugely. (Ruger has been famous for "having a trigger pull heavier than their action") Followed by a decent barrel chambered to your prefered ammo. Followed by a hogue stock. Followed by a milled-billet receiver with integral rails. Followed by an aftermarket headspaced bolt.
