Default Ruger 10/22

I'm thinking of getting a Ruger 10/22. Is there any major differences between the wood stock or the composite? (as in, performance). Or, does it not really matter?

Not really. It depends on taste mostly. It will function perfectly fine with either. My old man shoots a wooden stock one and I've got a Tapco T6 on mine.

Chances are, you'll change the stock anyway, oh and the trigger, the mag release, the barrel and on and on and on! These things are so easy to modify and make your own! To me though, the only thing that really does need fixing is the trigger.

What didn't you like about the trigger? I never fired one, I have friends that have them and never heard anything about the triggers.

I agree really. I've wanted to modify mine so bad! However, I've kept it as stock as possible for a survival rifle purpose. Simplicity is Survivability

The trigger thing is all subjective to the shooter. Mine is not modified and I think it's just fine as is. It's all about personal preference, some find it a bit heavy and with the Voltquartsen (I think) you can actually adjust the pull to your liking.

The trigger is very heavy, around 8 or 9 lbs on most of them. It's easy to drop in a new hammer from Power Custom. I got mine from Midway. The trigger is now around 2 1/2 lbs. and crisp.

Theses bad boys are sick outta the box. but dremmiling the bolt release and a light trigger make for a cheap user friendly upgrade

I'm with jeepjeep. The trigger on mine was like 6lbs stock and a simple spring dropped it to like 2.5, it just fires so much smoother
