If you are referring to a basic upgrade, the following:

Auto-Bolt Release OR Extended Mag Release

If you are talking a bit more in depth, the following:

KIDD Trigger Job Kit

The one and only upgrade I have done to mine is to change out the stock to a Hogue overmolded stock. Everything else is staying bone stock and I'm happy with it.

That one is easy. Get a match grade barrel. Of course, unless you want to inlet the existing stock, you should also get a stock that will fit the barrel.

If you're planning on running iron sights, I'd upgrade those to maybe some fiber optic sights. If you're not, then a decent scope and some good rings would be a great way to add to the rifle without messing with any other components.

A drop in Power Custom hammer and sear (non-adjustable).

I can shoot a stock trigger well. This simple trigger upgrade makes it easier to shoot well.

no restrictions on the upgrade! can be very basic or extremely custom, just limit to ONE upgrade. my ruger 10/22 came with fiber optic sights (green rear, red front). ive heard about upgrading my trigger to a lighter pull and possibly all metal (mine are plastic..) but i also heard about having a gunsmith polish some parts in the trigger housing not sure which is better.

In priority order.

1. Scope and matching rings

2. Extended Magazines (25 rounders)

3. Exotic stock- laminate preferred.

4. Extended Mag-release & Oversize slide opener

Examples shown here

I can't limit it to just one. I think there are three critical upgrades:

1. auto bolt release - this can be DIY if you're mechanically proficient.

2. extended mag release.

3. M1-style aperture sights: Tech-sights or Nodak.

Well, in that case, I'd just buy a good drop-in trigger for the gun and run the iron sights. It would give you a fun plinker with no fuss.

The only mod I've done to my 10/22 Sporter: a bolt buffer.

I made mine from a 3 1/2" X 1/4" nylon bolt. Actually made eight of them in about an hour for a cost of about $3. The way the first one is holding up, I may never use them all.

I do have a cheap Tasco rimfire scope, and a home-made web sling, but those aren't really mods.

No doubt on that one at all....the trigger group...Factory stock has a 9 lb pull and about as smooth as a tractor pull....Spend the $70 and have David over at Brimstone do a tier 2 trigger job for you.....you won't regret it....

I am truely amazed at the number of people that have apparently never shot competition or military accurate shooting....scopes....stocks....buffer pins....for accuracy....?? How about #1...a good trigger......#2...a good barrel.....#3...Good stock....#4 Good optics....with 3 and 4 being interchangable......
