The Ruger is one that I bought in the early '00s, largely out of nostalgia. My father had a 10/22 that my brother and I shot quite a bit when we were kids in the late '70s/early '80s. I bought mine with the intention of leaving it mostly stock, sans a Power Custom hammer to improve the awful factory trigger. However, over the years it's picked up several mods:
- The Power Custom Hammer,
- A Volquartsen oversized left handed safety,
- "Slingshot" mod for the bolt release,
- An extended mag catch,
- A Butler Creek folding stock, which has now been replaced by
- A Choate Machine and Tool M4-style telescoping stock, and
- Tech Sights.
