    Hi all,

    I recently bought one of these:
    [​IMG]
    (well 3 of them) What are they? These are polyurethane / polymer TUFFER BUFFERS that replace the stock metal bolt stop pin in a Ruger 10/22. Instead of a metal-to-metal contact making a"clack" sound, the bolt makes a much quieter "thupft". These reduce the wear and tear of the reciever and the widening of the bolt stop hole (notice how the bolt pin slides out after shooting alot? yep, those holes are ovals now!).


    They last a lifetime and are impervious to oil and grease.

    I used one and gave one to my uncle, I have an extra for a giveaway!

    I will give it a week-and-a-half or so.

    To enter just state why you like the Ruger 10/22!

    Chazz

    I'm in! I bought a lightly used 1970 10/22, upgraded to a BX trigger group, it's a nice shooter. Got a tri-wing mag adapter, too. This would be a nice upgrade as well. Thanks for the chance.

    I'm in, And I learned something I didn't know about the 10 22. I got a 10 22 for Christmas in the early 80s, I wore it out. So I've always kept one around. I like the way they all shoot. To me one of the best .22s around. I had a stainless full stock I bought new at Walmart years ago , only one I didn't like.

    I'm in. Nothing like a product you have never heard about to solve a problem that you didn't know was curable. I like the ruger 10/22 because of it's nearly limitless potential. You can customize them in so many ways, but other than upgrading the magazine release on my first one, because it had always bugged me as a kid I've never done anything to any of mine. Durable, reliable, and good looking, I'm surprised there isn't a song or poem immortalizing the glory of the one and only Ruger 10/22.

    Thank you for both the Giveaway, and for illuminating my mind on the subject.

    Not in, but I like it because it is a light short durable little field gun. After wanting one for 40 years I bought one last fall, did some work to the stock and it is really a looker now. joe

    Not in. All four 10/22s that I had as an Appleseed instructor got those as well as a few other tweeks. They work great.

    I’m in! Thanks for the chance!

    I love 10/22’s!
    I first dreamed of one when I was 11/12 years old anticipating my 13th bday gift, which Dad promised me would be a .22!
    I asked for a 10/22, but received a Marlin 60 instead.
    Bought my first 10/22 new at 25yo and have purchased several more since, including a Takedown just a few weeks ago.
    They are fun to have because they can be set up in so many different configurations. We built a target rifle with a left hand thumb hole stock for my son, a long range hunter with a Tapco stock and Sweet .22 scope, a Butler creek folder with Williams aperature sight for my truck gun, a fully stock 1974 carbine, the list goes on, no two are alike!
    Yet, I can grab a bag of loaded mags and any one, head to the range or field and have a blast!
    They are Americas FUN GUN!

    Not in but very nice GAW @Chazzle. To the winner, be warned, once you replace the buffer you'll start considering other changes you can make to your 10/22 or Charger. They are "Lego" guns that are very easy to work on. Before you know it you'll have invested more in after market accessories than the gun cost in the first place. The trade off is 10 shot groups than can be covered with a dime. Is it worth it? Absolutely!

    Not in, but next to the AR-15 one of the most customizable rifles you can get. Fun to tinker with and you may get a real shooter box stock, or choose to go all out with stock, barrel, trigger etc.

    I'm in!

    I love the 10/22 because it's reliable, and there are so many aftermarket parts that you can make it your way. Years ago I converted my 10/22 with the Tapco stocks when they first came out and added a flash hider. At that time there were really no "Tactical looking" 22's on the market and it was really unique, many people didn't know what it was, but now and days it may seem dull to most folks lol. My 10/22 has taken lots of game and has joined me on many woods roaming ventures over the years.

    Nice GAW. I turned one out of UHMW rod for my 10/22. Works great.
