    Yup,  best $75 you can spend on your 10/22. I put one in my appleseed gun a while back, got similar results 5-6lbs down to a consistent 3.5lb.

    2 other great low $ upgrades for your 10/22, EGW extended rail (~$45) if you're going to run optics or TechSights(~$65) if you're not.

    I do like the magpul hunter stock as well,  it's not quite a "precision" stock but it does a decent job and the ergonomics are great.

    Fixing that factory bolt release is essential if you are doing the appleseed thing.    Upgrading the extractor is also a great idea.

    Yeah,  I was just going to mention the bolt release. The stock setup is horrendous.  5min with a file and you're good to go.   If you're running a takedown you'll want to do it also.

    I went out and bought a Volquartsen trigger group for mine, since I didn't care for the plastic ones they put on newer guns, but modifying the factory one works too and is a lot cheaper.    I hated dealing with the stock bolt release when I was instructing a few years ago.

    A BX trigger and a Magpul Stock make for one NICE Small Caliber set up.  Drop that into the 10/22 Heavy Barrel... That would really be something.

    It's a fun little rig.  Still working on a bull, too many other projects going on.

    Thanks!  It's a fun little shooter.  That Nikon EFR is pretty groovy too.

    The BX is a big improvement for Ruger.  However, my preference is for a KIDD trigger.  $300 and done.  Many in our competition group are using KIDD.  The rest are stubborn and using trigger kits for their bolt guns.
