hey guys, first rifle worth talking about and my first post here !
i'll just preface this with, i'm just now getting into the great american tradition of gun ownership, i bought my first rifle on saturday which was a ruger 10/22 takedown, got it home and started playing with it, the first thing i noticed is how bad the bolt release is, it's a nightmare to me, i can only get it to slide after fiddling with it for a few minutes, i'm sure this just my ineptitude though as the reviews only say it's a slight bother, well long story short i found a bunch of little things on the rifle that i would like to fix for my use, so i got online last night and ordered a bunch of stuff up, but the bolt extractor started this whole thing.
i picked up
exact edge extractor- because why not, and if it ever fails i got the stock one as a replacement.
super extended mag release- one of the really long ones, i like being able to just flick my finger forward and make the clip drop
auto bolt release - because i really really hate the stock one and the whole dremel thing kind of put me off when i was reading about people not getting it right because there is a slight radius at the back of the piece.
bx25 clips x4
swivel mount and some spare rail for a light or some other accessory on the for-end.
so now the question, what do i do with all of this stuff and what tools am i going to need to get the job done? I'm a competent mechanic so figure i should be alright, but i also respect my firearms to such a degree that I'm a bit weary of doing this work , i have never taken a gun down this far before and am unsure of the difficulty and the nuances of it all, you guys got any tips or tricks for a rookie trying to get his head around this?
p.s. this sucks, i could never figure why you guys had alot more money into your guns then what the gun costs, i now get it and may be divorced soon because of it, lol , this really is addicting isn't it?
