If you remember, I posted about the Ruger 10/22 that I took to Appleseed and stopped extracting only to find out that extractor, spring and plunger were missing. I finally got all the parts together yesterday and installed them. I also replaced the firing pin (all the parts are Volsquarten) and stepped out to the backyard to test functionality.

Oh sweet baby Jesus!, it ran like water in a creek. Two mags dumped without a hiccup.

I am going to upgrade the other 10/22 with a new extractor and firing pin. It already has the extended magazine release and bolt Auto Release Plate. And then, I will do the most important thing I could do: Stop effing around with them.

The next Appleseed near home won’t be till April. I’ll be ready then.

  1. Good going, Miggy!
    I have a 10/22 that is more or less a hanger queen. Haven’t shot it in maybe 10 years. Now, you make me want to get that puppy out of the safe and head to the range!
    I have tons of 22 in the back if my ammo cabinet.
    Good times…

  2. I went to an Appleseed event and the exact same thing happened on my 10/22. I replaced the same parts and had the same smooth action that you’re talking about. Everyone needs to attend an Appleseed event. They are fabulous. I’m in the process of buying two more guns so I can take my wife and two oldest daughters

  3. for maximum giggles get a 25 round RUGER mag {RUGER only.} a clear sided one is best.
    And a 15 round round Ruger Mag. (don’t make clear 15 rounders)
    You will soon see just how much ammo you and a young shooter can really burn through.
    I thought I had a large 22 stash, but not any longer.

    Maybe even a 22 scope with quick detachable rings.
