    Question Ruger 10/22 Compact Model

    Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. is proud to introduce a new version of the world’s most popular .22 autoloading rifle, the new Ruger 10/22 Compact Model. It features a 16 1/8” blued steel barrel, a correctly proportioned wood stock with a 12 3/4” length of pull and flat buttplate, and easy-to-see fiber optic adjustable sights. Like all Ruger 10/22 rifles, it also comes with a unique scope base which accepts both Weaver-style and “tip off” scope mounts, allowing easy mounting of a wide variety of scopes, “red dot,” and other optical sights.

    This is the third in a series of new Ruger compact rifles, building on the successes of the Ruger M77MKII Compact and Ruger M77MKII Frontier bolt-action rifles. “We are building the rifles demanded by our customers,” said Sturm, Ruger & Company President Stephen L. Sanetti. “Short, fast handling, easy-to-carry rifles are more popular than ever. They are equally in their element in a saddle scabbard, in the deep woods, or at the target range with your family,” he continued.

    Yeah why not. I had one once and it was a very good .22, very accurate and reliable (never cleaned it). I didn't care for the stock sights though. Those fiber optic sights sound good.

    I'll be the first dissenter. The regular version is short enough for me. When my daughter is old enough for a .22, I'd like to get her a little Taurus 62 pump with both stocks (youth and full size).

    I still have my 10/22 that my dad bought for me 15 years ago. What a great little rifle! I'll pass it on to my son when he's old enough and responsible enough to appreciate it!

    I like the new 10/22 carbine and would certainly consider picking one up if I ever decided to go for another one!

    Mixed thoughts - but not because of the rifle itself as much as my own particular needs.

    I have a Marlin60 which represents a longer gun - also Mauser Obendorfe, which is even bigger. But for small I have the lil' Papoose so don't need another.

    Daresay tho it'll go quite well - seems they are trying to satisfy cust' demand.

    My standard carbine 10/22 works fine, so no need for a similar gun.

    Always liked the 10/22, had two with the 50 round mags before they were banned back in the day, would buy mags at Big 5 for 15 bucks. Great little guns for plinking

    Zach, I do see your concern about the OA length with a folder. Might just get a few innocent people in a jam, and thanks for pointing that out to all of us.
