Whistlepig.
So said a Gun Club member that must have had $20,00 for so in 10/22 variations.
Volquartsen, Feddersen and Kidd Match barrels were were others that he liked. This guy was not happy with anything that shot larger than 0.50" groups at 50 yds. I don't think there was much Ruger left in his rifles. Kidd triggers were mentioned a lot by him.

He also said that most stock 10/22's benefitted greatly from a good barrel re-crown.

His rifles were pretty far out there for my conservative taste, but he did put a lot of bullets in the same hole. A Simmons 6-18x seems to be helpful in doing so.

I'm just a Plinker and have been happy with a Ruger 10/22 LVT (my first) this past year. The barrel seems to shoot fine, but the trigger could use some improvement along with the old dude pulling it.
