Default 10/22 with Some VQ Enhancements

Bought this rifle a few weeks ago. It has a VQ stock and barrel. Has had a trigger job and wears a Boush & Lomb Elite 3000 3 x 9 scope. I later bought a VQ buffer, hex head action screw, Power Custom cocking handle and also a VQ exact edge exrtactor.

The guy who owned the rifle before me put alot of money into the gun but left in the crappy factory extractor . Stove piped about once per mag before replacing with the VQ part.

Ruger produces some excellent firearms, however, I cannot understand why they haven't addressed their extractor issues in the MK pistols and apparently the 10/22's as well. A sub-par $2 part can render a $200 to $600 rifle or pistol frustratingly unreliable.

Good stuff and a handsome rifle as well.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams
