    Ruger 10/22

    I just bought one of these little gems (the standard carbine-all wood version) and it has jumped up to the top of my "fun to shoot" category, at least for now! I added a 4x BSA scope and a sling but other than that it's bone-stock. I may upgrade the trigger because it's around 6-8 pounds now....very tough. Anyhow, with ammo the way it is you can't beat getting 550 rounds of .22lr for $10.50. I hit a quarter sized piece of clay pigeon at 100 yards with it........beautiful! Here's a shot of her:

    Nice Little Shooter...

    I bought one a while back, but haven't gotten around to shooting it yet...I wish I could just shoot out of the back door...but all the cars and houses would get in the way!

    Did you get any bananna mags (30 rounders)?

    Stay armed...enjoy...stay safe!

    HnKuspDude: Where did you get the pieces/parts for that? I gotta build one of those!

    10/22's are like old Chevy's; tons of aftermarket parts and fun to soup up.

    Sisco...the stock is from RB Precision, its CNC machined, the grip is a 1911 grip adapter, the trigger, charger bolt handle and mag release were made by a fella on Rimfirecentral.com, goes by the name of Skeeter. I also put in a WeaponKraft bolt buffer. I still have the standard barrell on it, plan on picking up either a Tactical Solutions or Green Mountain bull barrell in the future.

    10/22's are one of my favorite guns to tinker with and shoot. I dont even know how many I have, there is at least 4 complete guns in my safe, and at least as many in parts. Enjoy, but be careful. They can become addictive.

    You guys should look at whistle pig gun barrels, they make an aluminum barrel, I have one, they're sweet. I like that RB precision stock. Has anybody seen the 100 round mags? If so let us know. I have 3 of these little babies, I am going to convert 1 over to 22 short with the volqaurtsen kit.

    I love 10/22's! My dad and I went together and bought my son a stainless with wood stock for his 14th birthday. My dad still has the one he bought when I was younger than that. We can't even count the 1000's of rounds of 22's that have gone down that barrel. A few years ago he thought it was finally wearing out, then he realized it was the mags, bought new ones and is still hums like a sewing machine! And just to give you an idea how long ago he bought that 10/22, he paid $28.95 at the local hardware store!

    Wouldn't be without one.

    I purchased the one from Tapco for my son's 10/22 - very ergonomic (with the stock collapsed [and using AR style Tech Sights], it lets my 7 year old make consecutive hits at a 9" ballon target 50yds away, from the standing position, all by himself with just the aid of a sling! - ok proud parent mode off ) and sturdy for being ABS plastic. Take a look:

    http://www.tapco.com/proddesc.aspx?i...8-b4faa02d6fc4

    Tapco wouldn't do business with me since I'm at Puerto Rico; however, AIM surplus did - paid $90 through AIM surplus with very fast shipping. Heres their link:

    http://www.aimsurplus.com/acatalog/T...Stock_Set.html

    Under no circumstances do business with Rhineland Arms - I had to call Visa and ask them to refund my credit card after Rhineland decided to ignore me for months and months. I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and Rhineland didn't even answer the Bureau's official communications - the BBB gave Rhineland another bad mark on the Bureau's website.

    Another product your 10/22 can't go without are Tech Sights' AR style iron sights. Heres their link:

    http://www.tech-sights.com/ruger3.htm

    Great people to do business with; they also shipp very fast.

    Heres the "tactical 10/22" thread at rimfirecentral.com:

    http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=112771

    There are quite a few pictures of Tapco stock rifles and Tech Sights in there, however none of both Tapco's angled stock and Tech Sights' AR style iron sights - I might have to post a few pictures of my son's 10/22.

    I think I'm going to keep mine traditional, although the AR look is kind of cool.

    Except if you own a real one....like me.

    Yeah, you know I've read lots of things about Rhineland arms...they make some really cool stocks but I've not ever heard one good thing about their customer service. As for my RB Precision, I love it. Unfortunetly, at the moment, they are not making anymore and don't know when they will start up again. Glad I got mine while supplies were there.

    I have 5 of them , and not a single one in " factory trim " hell only one with a factory ruger stock , and its a synthetic that did not come with the rifle lol .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    I bought a used one at a gun show a few years ago for $100 including a 4X scope. No wear to speak of, the bore was nice and shiny. I know of no better all around .22 rifle!
    In Oklahoma, even we liberals like guns!
