First a little about the gun:
Ruger 10/22
Tactical Solutions 16.5" barrel
Hogue stock
BSA sight with Weaver rail.

I purchased everything used except for the BSA sight and put it all together. The gun feels really good. The Hogue stock combined with the aluminum Tactical Solutions barrel makes for a very light and easy to handle gun. It's going to be a fun little plinker, look out jackrabbits!

I took apart the trigger assembly and polished everything but it really needs a good aftermarket kit put in it or I may send it out. The BSA is OK for the money ($50) but does not give good contrast in bright sunlight. I am looking into a polarizer or filter for it because the western sun is pretty bright at 4000+ feet. It is not very rugged either and the sight adjustment system leaves room for improvement.

Once I get everything figured out I am going to Duracoat the receiver, rail and trigger housing.

Now for some pics:





Here are some pics of the BSA sight set on the circle dot setting:

First targets shot prone, the far right group was my last:

Check out Rimfirecentral.com if you're looking for information on how to make your 10/22 into a tackdriver. I sold my DSP model a couple of years ago when I decided to switch to CZ 452 bolt action rifles. I had a Green Mountain 20 inch fluted sporter barrel, a Power Custom hammer/adjustable sear trigger group, and a host of other modifications. That rifle would shoot under 3/8's inch at fifty-yards with SK Jagd ammo from a rest.

I purchased the barrel used from a guy on Rimfire Central and you are correct, it is an excellent site with lots of good info and good people. This gun is as accurate as I want it to be. I have an old Winchester 52 and a Ruger 77/22 if I want to drive tacks. :D

Like I said before, the trigger group needs to be worked over. With a gun this light it is hard to get a trigger to "surprise" you when the pull is over 6 or 7 pounds. I want something down in the 3 pound range.

I think that the Power Custom hammer/sear setup will give you the kind of trigger pull you want. You might also consider the Volquartsen hammer/sear setup too. Both are drop in parts and work well - I've used both. Rimfire Technologies has come out with some new stuff, but I haven't tried them. Although I don't own either one anymore, here are pics of the 10/22s I used to own. The only 10/22 I have left is an HM2 conversion that uses Power Custom internals and a Green Mountain 96/22 barrel.

Those are nice roadrunner!

We have five 10/22's between my boys and I. I had built one about 15 years ago and then sold it to buy the 77/22. A few years ago the bug bit me again because of all the improvements with the triggers and buffer systems available.
