I'm probably the 3rd owner of a 10/22 carbine that has seen relatively little use (so far). I just ran the serial number and found out it was built in 1977. Manufacturers make changes in quality and materials (often for the worse) to protect their profits. Can I assume that this rifle was better built than more recent production years? My question:Where can I go to get good info on what was good and bad about the 10/22's built at that time? There are far too many Google hits for me to know the best source for good info on this popular gun. I'm curious to learn the smartest things I could easily do to improve/modify that rifle without spending a ton of money. My ultimate plan is to make this my young son's first rifle.
