I made my Extended Magazine Release today along with doing my trigger work.

Here's the EMG




It took about 15 minutes and $1.75 to make. I'm pretty happy with it. It does what I want it to do and it didn't cost me $15 either.


I also did a little trigger work today. I followed these steps to do the work

I also polished the sear up to help with pull. I don't know what it took the trigger pull down to, but it's a night and day difference in pull. Before when pulling the trigger, the rifle would actually move a bit because it took so much effort to pull the trigger.


I can't wait to get it to the range to see the difference. Now the total for the rifle not including time taken to do the mods, has cost me around $230 total. I think I'm doing pretty good at meeting my "low" budget goal for this rifle.

I admire your ability to do-it-yourself, without caving into the buy-it-and-bolt-it-on mentality.

Keep it up, and you can have the 10/22 of your dreams, without spending more than the purchase price on accessories (like most of us do!).

Thanks.


I also didn't mention I made a bolt buffer too.:D

Good job. I hate the mag releases that they come with.
Got pics of the bolt buffer? How did you make it?

I cut a piece of an old plastic Mac Tools tool cart, and stuck it in a drill. Ran it in the drill till it was the right diameter and cut it to fit. I'll try and get you a pic tomorrow. It's not pretty but it fits and works.
