I have recently carried out some tweaks on my basic 10/22 they are listed below with any links and detales of ant lubes used.
I stripped and degreased the reciver and bolt then used Dow Corning Molykote (D-321R anti-friction spray coating Art. No. 4045681 NSN 9150-99-2250519). I coated the reciver and all the bolt components. This has greatly reduced the fouling caused by powder residue getting stuck to oil in the reciver and the action is smoother.
I carried out the following: http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=251177
It involves polishing various components within the trigger group. I used 3 various grades of micro-mesh to achive good results. When reassembling the trigger group I gave all points of wear or movement a thin coating of Dow Corning Molykote G-n metal assembly paste, I used this sparingly so as to reduce fouling from powder residue. This has made the action of the rifle smoother and far less prone to stoppages.
It hasn't reduced the pull weight of the trigger as no angles on sears were effected by polishing. I will in time get a target sear and hammerand , polish them before fitting.
I hope that this may help anyone that may be thinking of spending money on their rifle, try some other things before parting with your hard earned cash.
