I'm currently getting 2 Ruger 10/22's ready for my first Appleseed event and figured there must be a few members here who have done one or may be interested in doing one. I have read through the Appleseed site to get as much info as possible there, guess I'm just looking for more.
So far I've taken bone stock Ruger 10/22 Carbine's and added Tech-Sights, 1 1/4" sling mounts, and a USGI sling - that's what seems to be the highest and most unarguable modifications I've found.
I've read about bolt buffers, but think they are more for your own benefit than the gun itself and I don't mind the sound my 10/22's make, so I think I'll leave it at that.
Automatic bolt release modification I don't think I'm interested in either because I've read that although they make it easier to chamber the first round, it takes more effort to get the bolt to lock back.
I'd like to leave as much factory as possible, I guess I'm one of the few that actually likes how they are as-is, but if you feel there is something that is very beneficial to the Ruger 10/22 please chime in, my mind isn't made up.
