I've Made It As Easy As Possible

After owning over twelve 10/22's, Sending millions of rounds down range in the last 30 years you find most of the problems that can happen with the ruger 10/22.

I spent a couple years focusing on reliability, trying all kinds of modifications that I did myself, some worked, some failed, then setting down analyzing why this didn't work and how to fix it.

Then I spent months on "let's make this rifle shoot more accurate", tried some of the after market affordable barrels with some disappointment and started machining on the factory barrel and bolt. I found that after I did a small group of modifications the rifle really worked and was an accurate sleeper rifle.

I have put my years of field testing into an easy to follow manual of do it yourself step by step modifications, with large color photos.

Case Study #1 - Cleaning Rod Hole Modification


One of the things that truly impacts the accuracy of your 10/22 is lead build up in the barrel, shooting the cheap plinking copper wash ammunition or the lead target ammo. Most of the time we are out shooting hundreds of rounds a day and the bore snake or pull through type brushes just doesn't cut the lead build up in the barrel. The problem of removing the barrel to clean it is, the point of impact will change after you reinstall it. The vibrations or harmonics will be affected if you don't tighten the mounting bolts the same as they where before. Affecting your accuracy.

The Solution

Add a Cleaning Rod Hole (found in this ebook) an easy modification is to create rod hole in the back of the receiver. The advantage is that you can run a cleaning rod through the barrel with out removing it from the receiver.

    See What My Clients Say

    I recently purchased a Ruger 10/22, the first time I used it I was very disappointed. I was using Eley subsonic ammunition and the rifle kept jamming or not firing. Additionally I was frustrated with the release of the magazines, the bolt release mechanism and also the spent shells were not ejecting correctly.

    I found out that CCI subsonic ammunition works fine, but I needed an answer to the other issues I had. I saw your ebook detailing performance enhancements for the Ruger 10/22. I immediately purchased a copy. I received it immediately
    and carried out a number of your modifications.

    The purpose of this note is to thank you for the excellent information within your documentation. I found it easy to follow and I am exceptionally pleased with the performance of the rifle now.

    Thank you

    I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for the information about the 10/22. I always knew it was out there but didn't know who was giving the right information?

    I ordered the eBook last night about 7:00p.m and couldn't wait to try it out. Just to give you a little back ground on me, I'm a Residential Remodeling Contractor in Arizona and I'm very good at fixing just about anything. Everyone I know comes to me when anything breaks and they know I love to tinker. So I got your eBook read through it and then got out the rifle and started breaking it down.

    I bought the 10/22 and a Marlin 22 at a garage sale, got both for $80, so you know it needed a good cleaning anyway. I tore it down and started making the modifications you specified.

    The modifications were very easy to do and some of them I did more than once because I didn't want to go to far the first time. I spent a couple of hours polishing, drilling and tapping. I haven't made or installed the shims yet because I have to find shim stock by me, so I know that will help too.

    I put it all back together and cycled the bolt and trigger a couple of times and WOW what a difference a little polishing made. I was so happy with the actuation of the bolt but I was disappointed with the trigger pull. So I tore it apart again and started looking at where I could make improvements here. I did the grinding on the spring but it still wasn't a silky as I wanted, I knew I had some springs I thought were the rite size and weight.

    I replaced the trigger return with a medium weight and the one between the trigger arms with a cut down light weight one and it was even better. Now the spring weights were good but the trigger catch (if that’s what it’s called) still required to much pull to over come so I pulled it apart again. I started looking at how to modify it. I carefully filed the notch on the arm of the trigger and then polished it and the notch on what I assume is the hammer.

    I did this four times, a little at a time put it back together and now it’s just about perfect. I took what feels like 1/2 to 2/3 of the pull out of the trigger it’s very smooth now, no more Crunchy Pull, I Remounted the Scope which by the way is just a little Crossman BB scope, I was going to give the rifle to my 9 year old daughter to shoot. Went to the range the next night took about 20 or so rounds to site in the scope and can now shoot 10 rounds into quarter sized groups at 50 yards with no problem.

    This rifle was never even close to that consistent before, she just lost her rifle it’s mine now, she can have my Mossberg. I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you putting this information out.

    Thank You Very Much

    I got the eBook for the 10/22 modifications the other day... I just wanted to give you a personal thank you for putting this together..

    You obviously went to a lot of trouble. I thank you for the in depth explanations and great detail in this eBook.

    If anyone has a question about the ease of these mods, you can tell them my 12 year old was able to do them.

    Thanks again!


    PS. If you ever decide to do an ebook on mods for the GSG-5, let me know.


    Performance Enhancements for the Ruger 10/22 work in the Classroom

    This Summer I had the chance to use Doug Yenshaw's e-book, Performance Modifications and Enhancements for the Ruger 10-22, as the text for teaching my Ruger 10-22 class at Trinidad State Junior College.Trinidad State Junior College (TSJC) hosts the NRA Summer Gunsmithing Program.

    As a visiting instructor, I taught two classes for the Summer Session this year during July, and one of my classes was Accuracy Improvement for the Ruger 10-22.

    TSJC has a regular Full-Time Gunsmithing Program and gives a degree certificate in gunsmithing. As one of the premier gunsmithing schools, they attract students and NRA Summer Session attendees who come equipped with high expectations of the class curriculum's, and their instructors.

    At the end of last years Summer Session, I had been asked by the program directors to offer a class on the popular Ruger 10/22. I agreed, but then realized I was going to have provide a quality, organized protocol for accurizing the little Ruger rifle.

    Fortunately, I know Doug Yenshaw! He has offered his e-book Performance Modifications and Enhancements for the Ruger 10-22 for several years.It is a thorough, and well organized step-by-step program for accurizing and improving the 10-22 without using expensive aftermarket parts.The book has many clear color photographs that illustrate each step.In other words, this is exactly what I needed for my class!

    Fortunately, Doug graciously allowed me to use his book in my class for a very nominal fee. That was a huge relief!

    Normally I have to work on a classroom manual for five or six months to prepare for the summer session. Having Doug's completed book to use in the class, meant I could spend some of my prep time gathering my class materials.

    When July finally rolled around, I loaded the van and drove to Colorado to teach my classes.

    Summer Session at TSJC is very busy, as the classes run from 8AM to 5 PM Monday though Friday, with a short break for lunch at noon. Classes are 12students, so with everyone needing personal instruction, it is a very intense experience for the instructor!

    My first week concerned bolt action rifle work, using my own manual which, sadly,is NOT illustrated, so I had to demonstrate every move in the shop and diagram them in the classroom.Add to this the high altitude of Trinidad (6800 feet) and the high temperatures of July,and you can understand that I was working very hard. Even breathing was sometimes hard!

    The second week, I met the students of the 10-22 class, and discovered that among12 students we had 17 rifles! They were all very enthusiastic about the class.I handed out the class materials, which consisted of a small goodie bag and Doug's fabulous manual. They immediately dived into their manuals and I had a hard time getting their attention back for the class lesson.

    In the class, we just followed the manual front to back, and the class went very smoothly.I had a lot fewer questions and requests to repeat information, since they had Yenshaw's manual to guide them, when I wasn't available.This made the class very easy for me, and I spent my time showing how to use special gunsmith tools and do the barrel machining on the lathe. I also demonstrated ways of working on the breech block. Everybody had a good time with this.

    I had requested that the students take their stock 10-22 to the range and shoot it for group at 50 and 100 yards (if it would hold a group together at 100 yards) before class began, to establish a performance baseline.This they did, and we posted their names and targets on one wall.50 yard groups averaged anywhere from 1 ½ inches to 3 ½ inches.Pretty much the usual for the little .22 carbines.

    We worked our triggers, barrels, breech blocks, and stocks and then bedded our rifles.Amazingly, most of the rifles were done by Wednesday! A few straggled on through Thursday. Fourteen of the 17 rifles were completely finished! Getting all students to finish their work during a full week is normally very difficult. Getting everybody done early was miraculous!

    So, off they went to the range for testing. I waited a bit uncertainly, because although I had utilized the techniques in Doug's manual myself, I had never seen the results that amateur gunsmiths and novices would derive from his method. It seemed too easy!

    I had no reason to worry! The students returned with big smiles and small 50 yard groups! The groups that had been in the inches at 50 yards, were now around 5/16ths to 3/8ths extreme spread for 5 shots. Huge improvement!The lone woman in the class came in with some good targets, but one intrigued me. It was about a 1 inch diameter ragged hole in the center of the bullseye. I remarked that it was a pretty large group. She replied that it was 100 shots at 100 yards! We put up the final groups on the wall, below the starting groups. Then we all walked back and forth comparing our progress. Everybody was all smiles and amazement.

    Doug's system had really worked, even for the novice gunsmiths and rank beginners in the class! I was relieved and gratified, and for a change, not overworked!

    The class evaluations were very positive, and one even said that the 10-22 class should bethe standard to which all the other classes should be held. Wow!

    Thanks Doug!

    I couldn't have done it without your book "Ruger 10/22 Modifications & Reliability eBook". It helped all my students sail through the work.
