Swap out the stock 10/22 trigger with a BX unit and you would have one sweet shooter (http://ruger.com/micros/BX-Trigger/index.html).

Note that in the latter article there is a mention about CHIAPPA RFID chips in their version of the M1 Carbine - very disconcerting.
What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

...Swap out the stock 10/22 trigger with a BX unit and you would have one sweet shooter (http://ruger.com/micros/BX-Trigger/index.html)...

Instead, quite a long time ago, I purchased two "drop-in" kits from Brownells:
One kit vastly improved the trigger, lowering its pull weight and removing a lot of creep.
The other, along with slightly-modified magazines, automatically holds the bolt open after the last shot.

Since pulling the trigger on an empty .22 rimfire chamber (even of a Ruger) will eventually peen a divot into the chamber's rim area, I much prefer the automatic hold-open.
The hold-open absolutely prevents a dry-fire shot from peening the chamber. It's also an instant reminder that one's magazine is empty.
After the magazine change, one merely pulls back on the bolt and then lets it run forward on its own.
