I bought the basic 10/22 a year or so ago, and it's been fun to shoot, and fun to customize (new stock, new barrel, new mag release, new buffer, new bolt lever, new take-down screw). But in the process, I've had a chance to look at other 10/22's and I find other bolts are far more nicely finished than mine. Mine is a rougher casting, and the machined surfaces are not a nicely polished as several other stock factory bolts have been. Mine has slightly uneven edges and machine marks still quite visible. Does Ruger fit better finished bolts on some models?

Mine came back from repairs yesterday (new bolt and trigger assembly). The Bolt looks rough on the surface. Even looks like there is a deep cut in one part. It shoots and extracts great though so I can't complain. The machining doesn't seem too good though as far as craftsmanship goes.

It might be luck, I don't want to trash talk ruger but it seems like QC dropped slightly.

Mass produced, production line $200 .22lr plinker. Function over fashion. If fancy is that important, spend the $90 +/- for an aftermarket one.

Wasn't really complaining it shot real good, was just an observation is all. It's kick a$$ for what it is. Like you said a $200 22lr plinker.

So long as it's shooting good, I'd be content. :) be the paper or the pest you're ridding your area of, it won't care what that rapidly moving piece of metal looks like. :)
