I have a 10/22 that I've used for over 30 years. Love it. I recently bought a new stainless 10/22 for my grandson. What a disappointment compared to the old one. Terrible trigger pull, stove piping, and a six inch group at 50 yards with 5 different types of ammo. Fixed the trigger and stove piping with after market parts. I took the barrel off the old gun, put it on the new one and shot a 3/4 inch ten shot group. The problem followed the old gun. Bad barrel?? How many after market parts does a person have to buy to make it a decent rifle?
