New toy, a threaded barrel Ruger 77/22 .22lr bolt action rifle

With the threaded barrel this gun should respond nicely to floating the barrel.

You can tell it is threaded because there are some exposed threads if you look in the right place. This picture shows the actual threading on the 77/22 receiver and barrel.

I plan on floating the barrel and doing some trigger mods to lighten and shorten the trigger pull.
Still deciding on how much bedding I will do to the 77/22

The first thing I did when I got the gun was to disassemble and clean everything... well the manual instructions to disassemble the bolt was really bad, it took me like 5 mins to figure out what the instructions was trying to tell me and took some trial and error to get everything apart.

To save people the trouble I went through, I decided to make a video showing how it is done.
