Best bet would be to buy a cheaper more accurate rifle to begin with.
Sorry I have to say that everytime I post in a 10/22 thread. I can't stand a10/22 really. I would rather have an old remington or mossy 22lr. cheaper and more accurate to boot.
You can take some extra material from around the action and bed it reall well then free float the barrel. To free float the barrel the best you are going to need two action screwes I am not sure if the 10/2puke has this as the last time I owned one was some 15 or 20 years ago.
Wow! Don't like a Ruger 10/22? That is rare indeed.I have gained a lot of respect for you through your good, well informed posts, but we'll have to disagree on Ruger 10/22s (I'm actually shocked you continue to hate 10/22s when you havn't had 1 for "15-20 years") as IMO they're the MOST reliable .22 semi-auto rifle of all time, and I LOVE to watch people's faces when I beat them mercilessly on the bags at the range with my "lowly inaccurate 10/22s. Just yesterday I was shooting my latest 10/22 build and got 10 shot .252 to .312 groups at 50 yards with match grade hand selected ammo.
And YES I'd be DELIGHTED to back up the accuracy level posted on my personal firearms ANYTIME-just cmon down to my shop with the range right behind and I might even let the doubter shoot my "ol homemade guns" IF they ask right. The proof is in the watching 1st hand. Anybody COULD (NOT saying anybody does) shoot a group at 10 yards and claim it's 50 or 100 yards.
