    My Dad wants a nice and accurate 10-22. I love my stock 10-22, but I am not on the up and up with all of of the best options to consider here.
    Please keep in mind he is no sniper, and I am sure most stock rifles can out shot him already. But that said, he wants a really nice rig.
    Suggest upgrades. (no pro level things please)

    - barrels
    - triggers
    - optics
    - stocks
    - any big bang for you buck thing you can come up with

    I should also mention he really hates the whole "tactical" thing. Though he does want a black synthetic stock.

    The main purpose of this is target shooting with an occasional rabbit, raccoon, and squirls.

    Thanks for your help!

    Is there anything wrong with Rugers Target model 10/22?

    Good setup out of the box, YES. Minus the trigger.

    A 35 dollar Volquartsen target hammer will make this setup the best bang for the buck. The target hammer can be purchased at Rimfire Sports and Custom, and the 10/22 Target from anywhere, like Bud's (best deal that I've found):

    Good luck.

    Can you use the "hot" rounds through those barrels? Like the CCI stingers? I think I remember some where that it would kill the barrels? Even mini mags for that mater, is this true?

    That's all I ever shoot out of my 10/22. When I shoot the mega bulk pack ammo I get lots of duds.

    I don't think stingers are supposed to be ran through anything with a target or match barrel, but I'm sure people do it anyway.

    They are not. I do not shoot hot ammo through my heavy barrel 10/22s. People's facination with stingers has always amazed me anyway....but I digress. I stick with Federal Auto Match 40 Grain. 325 rounds for 16 bucks all day and a very consistent, accurate round.

    The Volquartsen hammer is the best single improvement for the 10/22 IMO. Drops in, huge improvement in practical accuracy. My plain jane 10/22 became a tack driver with the VQ hammer.
    Add a good scope, a brick of Mini Mags and you'll be amazed how well they shoot.

    If he can find an older stock 10/22 get that and throw a decent scope on it. I did this for about $240.
