A. Measuring slightly more than 6 inches in length and machined from a single piece of 6061 T6 aluminum, the Evolution Gun Works Ruger 10/22 Picatinny Rail features a 30-MOA cant for long-distance shooting. Picatinny cross slots run the full length of the rail, giving shooters welcome flexibility when mounting optics and other accessories. A channel spanning the rail’s length reduces weight while permitting use with OEM iron sights. MSRP: $39.99;

B. Constructed from double-stress-relieved, 416R stainless steel, the Shaw Barrels’ Ruger 10/22 Replacement Barrel boasts a .920-inch, bull-barrel contour that minimizes accuracy-robbing movement by adding mass where it is needed most. The Bentz chamber, while not as tight as a minimum-spec match chamber, is significantly tighter than sporter variants. The result promises to help the shooter garner noticeably better accuracy with standard ammunition. MSRP: $290;

C. Adding much needed adaptability to the popular rimfire model, the Magpul Hunter X-22 Stock – Ruger 10/22 is packed with practical enhancements such as an ergonomic grip, length-of-pull and comb-height adjustments, numerous sling-mounting options and a non-slip rubber buttpad. M-Lok slots allow for accessory placement. MSRP: $139.95;

D. Featuring a body constructed from impact-resistant polycarbonate for added durability, ProMag Industries’ Ruger 10/22 (25) Rd - Smoke Polymer Magazine features a semi-translucent polymer body that  allows users to identify the type of ammo on hand and readiness on the fly. Inside, the spring is comprised of heat-treated, chrome-silicon wire for added durability. MSRP: $18.99;

E. Factory preset to deliver a single-stage, ultracrisp, creep-free, 2.75-pound pull, Timney Triggers’ Replacement Trigger for the Ruger 10/22 offers a drop-in, monolithic assembly that requires no gunsmithing and is easy to install. An extended magazine release that can be actuated with one hand is part of the unit, and customers can choose one of six trigger-shoe colors. MSRP: $244.99;
