Ruger 10 22 trigger assembly instructions
If your careful and test your rifle out thoroughly before loading it, you should be just fine with this modification. However I do want you to be aware that there are some risks if you're not careful- The safety may not work and you may experience miss fires. If you stay around the 3-4 lb pull weight you'll be fine but if you're going for a hair-trigger you might have problems.
I just finished the video and will get to the writeup as soon as I can.

Why do a Trigger Modification?
The Ruger 10/22 comes with a pretty stiff trigger pull- It's about 7-8 lbs. When most people squeeze the trigger they have a tendency to pull the rifle off target.
In this tutorial I will show you how to lighten or reduce the trigger pull down to around 3-4 lbs. This will help most people become more accurate when shooting. All the parts in this tutorial are stock parts or parts that came with the rifle. It will only require tools that most people already have and take about 30min worth of work.
If you're looking to build the ultimate competition rifle, then an after market trigger might be a good idea- They usually lighten the trigger's pull weight or make it adjustable, as well as tighten up the tolerances with shims and etc. You can find some really nice after market triggers out there for around . However, if you're like me and are trying to balance cost with benefit then the trigger job in this video will give you the best bang for your buck.
Anytime I work on something that I'm not to familiar with I try to find a diagram of how it goes together so I can reassemble things once I've taken them apart. Here is an exploded diagram of the Ruger 10/22's trigger assembly or trigger group. You might want to print this out to use as a reference.
After making sure your gun is not loaded, remove the take-down screw and barrel band; then remove the action/barrel from the stock.
