What parts should I look at replacing first that are long over their life expectancy?
What's it not doing? Loading or extracting?

If its not extracting get a new extractor. Volquartsen makes a good one

If its not loading id get a new spring

I assume you are using high velocity ammunition? no .22 auto will be reliable with match ammo. next, check the chamber. a burr from excessive dry firing will signifficantly slow down the bolt speed. also. be sure the chamber is clean. If you find that the chamber is dammaged, I have several factory take off barrels that have never been fired I can sell cheap.

I just picked up a brand new 10/22 this morning. And ordered a bunch of stuff for it this afternoon. I'll post up pictures as soon as it's all together.

Installed a KIDD charging handle, trigger spring kit, and Volquartsen mag release. Stripped the finish off the receiver and polished then clear coated it. Initially I took it to a very bright polish, but it stuck out to much against the scope mount and barrel. I took some scotch bright to it and gave it a more brushed, dull look to try to match those parts a bit more. How well it matches tends to depend on lighting. I'm not entirely worried about it, I just wanted it working for some ground squirrels this weekend.

You need to watch slickguns.com and gunbot.net for deals on ammo. I snagged 2100 rounds of Federal Champion in a nice ammo can for $120 yesterday.

I've been watching gun bot but hadn't heard of slick guns. That's a real good deal

I adore mine ^_^
I haven't gotten anything special though for it, except for a bigger clip (not allowed in this state lol).

I also have an older (from the 80s I think) Ruger 22 pistol that I have a cylinder for magnum rounds for it.

is the extractor lined up with the slot in the barrel?

Trigger job! The stock 10/22 trigger is around 8 lbs of pull. They are much better at 2.5 lbs. A friend of mind just had his done by Brimstone Gunsmithing and it came out real nice, and was only $70. You can get a drop in kit for about the same. Also, polishing all the internal parts of the bolt will make it much smoother. Look on YouTube, there are all kinds of how-to videos out there.

Very nice. Ive been thinking about getting another 10/22 to keep a factory stock and barrel on and just doing internal upgrades on.

Nailed it. My grandad did a trigger job on mine years ago and its much smoother and lighter than factory.
For the bolt all you need is some steel wool and some time

as Racer said, just check out youtube and http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/index.php
for more help.

I would also do an upgraded extractor as well

Yea I would like to put a lighter trigger on it. That will prob be my next mod. I've ran across a guy who does all the polishing and rounds off a part in the trigger and it's supposed to smooth things out. $70ish bucks.
I am a hands on guy but I really have minimal gun smithing knowledge. I'll DIY if I can though.
Thanks for the link! I've had a new pkg of steel wool under the sink for 3 years. Lol

If your willing to spend $70ish on a trigger, might as well go all the way and spend $100 on the KIDD Trigger job kit. You can do it yourself and just drop the parts into your trigger housing. I have no gun smithing knowledge and was able to do mine in about a half hourwithout any trouble. It has a metal trigger that breaks like glass and is one of the best ones on the market:

http://www.coolguyguns.com/Ruger-10-...-kit_p_95.html

"In order to produce this fine of a break, we have affixed the hammer bushings and fitted a hammer pin. We have also assembled the sear, disconnect, and trigger blade for proper tuning and ease of assembly. When using our kit you must not mix and match our pieces with other aftermarket or OEM hammers, sears, disconnects, or trigger blades in order to achieve the clean break you desire. This entire kit will drop into your Ruger 10/22 plastic trigger guard well within 20 minutes from start to finish."
