Coincidentally, I just bought a 10/22 today too (my first rifle!) and I didn't even think about the date until you mentioned it. Congrats!

Just got a new barrel for one of mine today!
Congratulations on you all's new 10/22s! I've been spending a little bit of time over at rimfirecentral this past week. I could get to spending a lot more time over there real easily! Great site, and plenty of tips and tricks to keep you and your Ruger 10/22 busy! We'll wait for pictures I guess.

I didn't buy a 10/22 today but I shot my 30 + year old 10/22 today. It still shots great and puts a smile on my face.

Ah dang.. I havn't even shot the thing and I've already ordered a metal barrel band and butt plate... thinking I'll do something with the trigger in the future too... Why didn't anyone warn me of the severity of this ruger 10/22 sickness??

Beings this thread has already gone long enough without pics, I figured I might as well post my newest creation. Got the Boyd's stock off EBay unfinished for a real good price...finished it myself (12 coats of Deft Clear semi-gloss), and the new ERShaw 18" helical fluted barrel. In the works........flanged pillar bedding.

A fitting date for a fitting gun...a great little rifle for anyone.

Have fun with your new riffle. I'm on my third one now.
Magnum Research model 1722.
What kind of aftermarket mags are you guys having the best luck with?
I have not had much luck with Butler Creek without jamming. the stock mags run fine.

You'll need to do some work on the Hogue over-molded stock in order for the factory magazines to drop free. I wrote my findings in a short article on another forum some time ago. I do suggest sticking with the factory magazines in the 10/22, or at least the ones that specify they have the metal fed lips. I have one Eagle 30 round mag that can be a PITA sometimes. All plastic even the lips...it stays in my closet most of the time.
