    1. someone needs to get control of the 10 22 quality control which is pretty close to none.The last one i got on black friday 2013 is close to JUNK.The stock is hollowed out to much by the receiver/the bolt was so hard to open i was sure it was full of metal shavings which it was not/the receiver rail is is so rough cut you could slice your finger open by rubbing it/the trigger assembly to receiver on the rear pin hole is over bored on the trigger housing that it flops around.Quality control i think not
