Kenny, no bashing coming from me, just a couple of comments.
I lost my father in 2000, he was 82 when cancer got him. I inherited his hand tools, and his pistol - a Colt Model 1903 Automatic 32 caliber that was made the same year he was born, 1918. I have left it just as it was and take it out from time to time to shoot it and keep it maintained. Whenever I handle it or shoot it I remember good times with my Dad.
Keep the 10-22 as it is, and when you're an old man like me you may perhaps be glad you did.
If you want a modified 10-22, buy one from a pawn shop and use it for a donor.
Just my opinion.

Heck yes, keep it like it is. These are trying times and roots in the past will become more cherished and important as time goes on. Even if you tacticool it up with man Barbie stuff, keep the original wood furniture so you can restore it to old, old vintage.

i agree with the 'keep the original' idea. A 10/22 'new' is not to expensive, and if you want to make it more special you can add to it. The originals have more sentimental value than you might want to think right now.
