I recieved an interesting phone call from an Ruger rep names Steve something (supposed to be some kind of big shot or something). He was responding to my bitching about Ruger going to plastic trigger housings on their 10/22s. He proceeded to inform me that it wasn't an cost saving move, but rather an weight saving/stronger part move. Also, he told me that the "long strand glass filled polymer" trigger housings are made to much tighter tolerances which result in better, out of box trigger pulls compared to the older aluminum 1s which have been produced since the 60s when Ruger brought the 10/22 out. He promised to send me 1 to wring out so when it gets here, and I have a chance to test it, I'll let yall know whether the plastic trigger housings are indeed an improvement or are simply an cost saving move as I suspect. At least they FINALLY listened to us and are furnishing installed extended magazine releases.
