I bought my first Ruger 10/22 rifle about 10 years ago. Even then I was upgrading the factory mags for the larger capacity 25-round mags and swapped out the OEM charging handle for a larger aftermarket one.
I even duct-taped a tactical light to the forend for skunk hunting at night. It was my skunk gun at the time and a damn good one.
Listed below are 3 Ruger 10/22 mods from the Faxon Firearms rimfire line.
Rimfire Barrel for the 10/22
Ruger puts a decent barrel on their factory 10/22 rifles, however, If you want to push the accuracy and performance, you must consider upgrading the barrel.
Known for their phenomenal rifle and pistol barrels, Faxon Firearms has stepped into the Ruger 10/22 game in a big way.
Like the other barrels, they are manufactured from raw bar stock and will undergo the same Magnetic Particle Inspection testing and quality assurance measures that all their rifle and pistol barrels go through.
Faxon Rimfire Barrels are made from 416-R stainless steel, given 6 groove rifling at a 1:16 twist, and a Recessed Target Crown.
Barrels are Magnetic Particle Inspected and are finished in either Salt Bath Nitride or PVD. Both Tapered and Bull Barrel options are available.
