As I said, I'm not sure I'll bother with changing it. I've managed to shoot right handed configurations with no problem all my life. Still it's good to have the option. Guess I'll have to go to the...

I've gotten bitten by the DIY mod bug, and I've been polishing feed ramps, sears and contact surfaces on just about every gun I own. I'm on my 70's era 10/22 now, and am wondering if the safety can...

So, do you see this 'chip' and the gas port? Or only one hole at the top of the barrel? Maybe a burr flaked off at the port.:confused:
