Well I got my 10/22 all set up finally so I can practice my long range shooting without the costs of shooting my .308.  One last thing I need for it is a new trigger.  Timney is coming out with a new one in the next month or two and I will probably get one of those as I have been very happy with the two AR triggers I have.

CFII hooked me up with a Super Sniper package that comes with rings and a load of other accessories.  It arrived yesterday and I got it mounted.  I am pretty excited to try it out.  I may even have to put it on my .308 for a while to really test it out, I have a feeling it is going to be a great scope.  Thanks for the great service CFII and SWFA, it was a great surprise when I went to the post office yesterday and it had arrived.

I think you missed the point there Silver.  To shoot out to 300 yards or more with a .22 you need around 40 MOA of elevation.  Super Sniper makes a good choice for that use.

Chris gave me the idea the other day when he was saying some long range shooter customers had been using them on their .22s.  I was going to go with a 6x but decided what the heck it has everything I need at less than half the price of the IOR I was looking at.

You are correct sir! That gun needs a new trigger. Send it to me! I need it as much as it needs me. Nice looking rig. I hope to do something like that someday when things look up.

Can you tell me more about the mount you are using?
Have a year later long term test drive report?
You happy with the 10x or would you prefer a 6x for the 22?
 
Looks great.

Mostly just the Remington subsonic stuff.  I have tried the remington target, but being supersonic it is not as accurate at longer distances.

Great!!!  I had never thought of that before... "If you think you need a new trigger, send it to Trigger..."
Very good.

curious as how the subsonic cycles?? the springs in most 10/22 are set up for the higher velocity stuff. Did you have to tune the bolt spring??

Dale, that is absolutely true with my 10/22.  The subsonic will not cycle at all.  I've never done any work on it, other than occasional cleaning.

True with mine too dale.  Since I just shoot paper with it, I did not care much.  I should have mentioned that, thanks for bringing that up.

not to jack this thread, but ive got a mid 70's model 10-22 and for some reason it wont cycle cleanly with the 25 shot clips, it will run through the 10 shot factory clips all day long but slap a 25 rd aftermarket in and she jams every 2-3 shots. so i traded a guy my 25rd for his extra factory 10rd

I have been toying with going with the same set up for my Volquartsen or my Anschutz. And maybe the SS10x HD.

And when you get your Timney trigger installed I would be interested in your thoughts on it. I have been thinking about building a 10/22 in 17Mach 2 and was going to use a Volquartsen trigger, but would be open to other choices.

How in the world did I miss this.

Man asleep at the wheel again.

I have never adjusted any of the springs and the few (x5) 10/22 s I have assembled for subs have always ran just fine.

The only issue being the 60gr dirty dirt SSS round that and the fact it is 3/8 the case size.

I am curious as to your earlier post does that mean you got out of this???

I ended up with this for my new trial barrel from EAB.















Under scoped as always, just enough to get me out to 500 yards shimmed.

Sparky,

Before you buy a Volquartsen 10/22 trigger I recommend you try one if you can.  Between three shooting buddies we own seven Volquartsens rifles in all four of the rimfire calibers, some purchased new, some used.  Our collective opinion based on first hand experience is that Volquartsen triggers are not match grade.  My .22 Magnum, new in August 2012, came complete with creep which so far has not worked itself out after 400 rounds.  Based on customer service experiences with Volquartsen and recent conversations with them about this issue, my next move will be purchasing an after market replacement trigger, most likely a Kidd.  Volquartsen accuracy is great, their triggers and customer service are not.

Old thread. I have a Volquartsen 10/22 STD in 22LR and the trigger is very nice. Sorry yours are not. I have not had to use their CS, but a buddy of mine has and they were very good according to him. But that was awhile back.

I was wondering on this post if anyone else has had troubles with the 10/22 not cycling subsonics and at that which brands were problematic.

Just wondering.
