Yeah, I would like to hear more about it also, including how it performs at the range, I envy those whom can still use open sites. I can't see much past 50 yards without a scope.

Hey USNCHIEF, nice looking 10/22! What kind of heat shield is that on your rifle? I also have the Tech Sites on my 10/22 and I love them. Here is a picture of mine.

Great picture...great looking piece....
Thanks guy for the compliments on mine. I did this work slowly as my budget would allow so I am not sure exactly who I purchased these parts from. Mostly MidwayUSA but also other places too. Here is a list of what was done:

Installed the extended bolt and mag release, hammer, sear, buffer and a adjustable trigger. I also have a slide on stainless (not matte finish) buzzle brake it is (eagle brand). The hand guard(heat shield) is stainless but I don't know if I would recommend it. Looks great but it uses tiny screws into your stock beside the barrel. So each time that ou break her down for cleaning your are removing these screws.

I avoided that particular vented guard for just that reason. There are at least two other brands which attach alternatively. Eagle brand via pressure clips on the barrel and the old Ramline by a very thin band which wraps around the barrel under the guard which isn't visible.
The Ramline is a quality product however it may be hard to find since the Blount Inc spin off.
Here's one of mine. The vinyl, high impact plastic doesn't contact the stock nor does it mar the barrel. It just becomes "semi permanent party" on the barrel.
