I bought one of the first 10/22s out, back in 1965..serial # 66XX, and it indeed was a tack driver..standard with walnut stock. I have not seen one off the shelf in recent years which would shoot with it...but then, many highly rated .22s could not shoot with it !
TC has Ruger to thank for the given action..best 22 auto action & magazine as far as I am concerned...however, a man named Selden once held the patent for the automobile..
Difference between $230 Ruger and $360 TCR... at least $100 worth receiver sight set... last shot fired hold back (with TCR magazine), Picatinny rail built in, plus larger charging handle and bolt hold back lock lever,
...And how much would one have to pay for the Magpul stock? Most reports say the accuracy is extraordinary.

I am a Ruger fan also, having owned over the years 4 different 10/22, and my latest purchase about 2 weeks ago, of a Ruger American in .450 Bushmaster.
I even did one with the full deal, heavy target barrel, customized bolt and all innards..plus 2 stocks, one I customized, plus a Hogue rubber stock.
Here's a video comparing the internal fit & finish with the 10/22;
