I love my rug. 10/22 best toy in the box and have begun to teach my son some of the basic gun safety rules and how to shoot. He absolutely loves goin to the range with me!
I put a bipod and a bushnell sportview with over/under rings. He is a fast learner and is already poppin 50 yds. in a pie plate!

I put together a training rifle but i am having a problem sighting it in  - it shoots hi.

The rear sight is all the way down and the front sight is all the way up!!

I am using a .920 buttler creek carbon fiber bbl.

I get great groups but about 4 inches high @ 25yds

Please describe, as precisely as possible, the type and manufacturer of sights that you are using.



I am using Tech Sights with the bull barrel adapter for the front sight. I am trying to make a Liberty Training Rifle for apple seed.

I am also using a hogue stock

Not trying to cut in on raf here.  My 10/22 ended up with the rear sight cranked all the way over to the left.  I removed the barrel (those two little screws on the bottom of the barrel) and cut a shim from an aluminum soda can.  It cut easily with sharp scissors.  I cut it in a cresent moon shape and put it betweeh the barrel and the receiver on the left side.  Then I reinstalled the two screws.  Now the rear sight is nearly back in the center of the rear sight housing.

If all else fails you could put a shim (or two) at the top where the barrel and reinstall it.  That might "push" the muzzle down enough to get you what you want.

I have the same problem with my Tech Sights- namely that the rear has to be shunted way off to the left to make it hit to point of aim. I will try and shim the it as described and see what I can get. It has been very disappointing to me.

I'll take a stab- Ruger 10/22 rifle, Tech sights, Hogue standard profile stock, Volquartsen magazine release, probably also the Volquartsen hammer kit (trigger pull reduction), auto bolt release either purchased (Volquartsen or other) or made. Can't be certain but I would say that the bolt handle has also been replaced, maybe with a .22 Magnum version which is slightly longer but otherwise identical to the original.

And another work in progress that has more of an AR feel, without spending the big bucks to get into an AR-22 stock:

I'm typically a wood and steel kinda guy, but that is one nice looking 10/22

I just received my Tech sights for my 10-22 and installed them.  Now if it will stop raining for a bit maybe I can go shoot it.  It will cost a lot less to shoot thatn my ARs, that is for sure.
Link Posted: 4/4/2009 10:17:55 PM EST
Installed my tech sights yesterday and shot it today. I am very happy with them. I will be using this rifle to attend an Appleseed shoot later this month.
Funny thing, the rear sight didn't mount straight, it is about .035" offset to the left on the receiver but is dead on with the rear sight centered. Go figure.

You know that is the third or so reference to sights not lining up in this thread. I had that issue with one rifle and used the pop can shim and got it on, two other rifles had no issues whatsoever. I have to wonder if there is a problem with the rifles or if it's with the sights? It has occurred way too often to be just "coincidence" in my mind.

Raf, my front sight would have had to have been off quite a bit to make it work with the rear set in the middle. I corrected it as one of the other guys suggested by shimming my barrel with some pop can metal. It worked fine. The rifle that I had a problem with was a late 1970's vintage. I had one from the late 60's and one from the early 90's and they were no problem at all to mount the Techs on....that's why it was especially frustrating! I had expected them to line up just like my other two and I got to the range and it was pretty bad.

Not a big deal, like you say, they made millions of the things and since mine are all used you don't really know what they have been through since they left the factory. The gun is up and running now and I use it all the time without issue but seeing several other folks comment on the same phenomena got me to thinking.....

Look further up on this page it was an idea that was given to me by M14 4me in this thread. The pop can shim works good. A little tough to fit around the action/barrel screw on the V block but it does work. One thickness was all I needed to make it work pretty good.

I am going to find out how mine will do tomorrow.  I just put on the TECH sights.  I  think it will save me a bit of money not shooting the ARs so much.  I lucked out my first top of the page and I have a picture on it.

I'm going to get a set of Tech sights for my old standard Ruger carbine. Which set should I get, the TSR 100 or the TSR 200. I'm planning to use it at 25 yards as a trainer.

I see most of you guys have these on the 18" version, if I am going to put Tech Sights on the 16" version what will be different?  My experience is mostly with foreign surplus, shotguns, and pistols, so having this much choice is alien to me!

I just finished building my LTR and couldn't be happier with it's performance. I took the first rifle that I ever bought over 30 years ago and replaced the shot out barrel with a new bull barrel, tech sights and a sling on Uncle Mike swivels. I still need to order several E&L mag clips. I'm still in the breaking in phase for the barrel but performance and accuracy has been excellent so far.  One problem that I did have was a couple slam fires during a breaking in shoot. I attribute this to using some dirty federal bulk box ammo and the match chamber being pretty tight. Once I ran a bore snake through it cleaned right up and didn't have another problem.

My buddy went to appleseed a couple weeks ago and he and I will be taking this training to heart. I was never really into shooting while on active duty but this is some great training.

I agree completely.  If I ever have to sell all of my guns for economic reasons, my Ruger 10/22 will NOT go.

10/22s are the most fun, useful rifle ever made.

I'm signed up for an upcoming Appleseed shoot (my first) and was going to use my 5.56 AR. After reading a bit, and considering that the 400 rounds of 5.56 ammo I'll use up would cost around $300, I decided to just buy a 10/22 and save the ammo. About the same cost, right?



So I found a NIB Deluxe Sporter on GB for a decent price, and pulled the trigger.



Shoulda stopped there...



Since then (i.e. in the last 4 hours) I bought a Hornet trigger assembly, Hornet speed bolt, titanium charge handle, and a set of Tech Sights, adding about $300 to the rifle.



Why oh why oh why do I do this....I should have just bought a Spikes Upper for the same money (except that I would have spent another $400 on it.)

Got a 10/22 recently as a gift so I talked myself into a little splurging for my LTR.  I put the Tech-Sights on it right off the bat and shot it a bunch. I loved the little rifle so I decided to build it up exactly how I wanted. Here's what I just got done purchasing for the project. I'll be back with appropriate AAR once I put it together and get to the range.

After receiving my Tech Sights, I made the mistake of turning over the packaging and seeing the ubiquitous "Made in Taiwan".  That might explain a lot of the "issues".    My front sight insert is physically canted as it was obviously cast imperfectly.  


Taiwan is the Republic of China, vs. the People's Republic of China on the mainland.  FWIW Taiwan (ROC) has long been a US ally, and their technology/quality level is generally quite high, as in very modern.  The ROC is not a third-world dump by any means.
If your part is defective, then by all means send it back so they can make good on it, as surely they will.  That is precisely what your warranty is for, and you should definitely alert any mfr to defective parts so they can not only fix you up, but correct the mistake so the same thing doesn't happen to others in the future.

Here's mine. I've since added a tech-sights front sight bull barrel adapter.  Now I have a suppressor en route and will get this barrel threaded and have dovetails cut into the barrel. Shoots friggin great.

Link Posted: 3/13/2011 7:16:40 PM EST
Rather than have the barrel cut for a dovetail, you can use the NDS front sight base. To have an all in one adjustment tool, just get the Tech Sights SKS adjuster that does the Tech Sights rear and SKS front sight post.

My LTR:



I am going to add an ER Shaw threaded barrel and the NDS front eventually... just waiting for my tax stamp to take possession of my SWR Spectre.
