Stang, I was thinking of upgrading to the Boyd's stock. Did you ever look into that?

I haven't looked into that.
lmk how it goes if you get one

Stangzilla, would you say your 10/22 more accurate than the American Rimfire?  I would have thought the groups would have been tighter with the American.

thanks.

I've never really tested the 10/22 for accuracy so much
mine was stock barrel and trigger.
I've shot better groups with the 10/22, but idk if that was luck.  Idk about how consistent it is.
so I can't really say at this point.
but I gave my 10/22 to my nephew, so I cant test it now. 
but from my experience with both, I would say its pretty close.

but the stock trigger on the Ruger American is very good.  adjustable 3-5 lbs.  crisp with short travel.
I bet you could mod a 10/22 to be better than the American very easily.  a lot of mods out there for the 10/22.

Do all your magazines fit ok?
My 1022 mags did not fit my friend's ruger american.

all mags fit
but only the 10 rounder fed ammo well
the 15 rounder was difficult.  had to force it in.
didn't try the 25 rounder yet.

I went to the range today. It was pretty windy on the rifle side. Below is a pic of the 50-yard groups for today. The bottom target is an 8 shot group I used to sight in the scope.

The top group is my 5 shot group.

This is CCI standard velocity 22LR.

For reference, the bullseye is 1 inch in diameter and the rings are graduated in 1/2 inch increments.
