Dang, that was easy. (some 10/22 upgrades)

Recommended Posts

As some of you know I recently bought a used 10/22 at a pawn shop. Hated the aftermarket stock it came in. So I replaced the stock with a Magpul Hunter X-22 and added one of those inexpensive slings that were posted in another thread.

 

Well I cannot just leave well enough alone. I hate slotted screws. I always manage to slip the driver off and either bloody myself or scratch something. so I ordered a replacement screw with a hex drive cap screw head.

 

While looking at things I also decided to make a replacement buffer. A 70 cent 1/4" x 3" nylon screw was bought at Ace Hardware. Trimmed to length in the lathe.

 

And last but not least... When I replaced the aftermarket stock I discovered a bunch of rust on the exterior of the barrel where the band held the front of the stock. I was not at all happy about that.

 

So last week while recuperating I was surfing FeeBay and found a new take-off factory carbine barrel for $37 shipped. Perfect. I abused my PayPal and the barrel arrived here today.

 

Made the new buffer, swapped barrels and put it all back in the stock with the new retaining screw. I am happy. And dang that was easy.

 

No pics. The buffer replacement thing is easy to find online. The rest is also so simple even I can do it!

How long before you get to take that bad boy out for a test spin?

I agree FW. 10/22s are easy breezy. A couple screws, and the whole thing falls apart in your lap.

I'm hoping for next weekend. I'm still finding myself lacking much in the way of stamina.
