10/22's can be modified to the nth degree, so you can do pretty much whatever you want with them. If you start with a basic model with open sights, you can later change the barrel out for one without sights. Or, you can just scope it although you might have to remove the rear sight to do it. It's easy to do.

Have fun, 10/22's are a hoot.

Default A scope helps old eyes

I have a 2x7 Leopold on my 10/22. I installed laminated thumb-hole stock, a Tactical Solutions barrel, mag extender, bolt buffer and a volquartsen extractor.
I'll upload a pic.

What did they call that particular color of stock? It has a very nice simple look to it that appeals to me so much.

Great looking rifle!

I bought the target model with no sights and like many have said as you get older a scope is the only way to go.


I went with the Bushnell 3-9x40

Exellent buy. I have Bushnell Elite 3200, 5x15 on my .223. Bushnell scopes are under rated. I had luck with them for years. My son got me the Leopold about 8 yrs ago for my birthday. The cost has gone up since I bought them as a wholesaler years ago. A little pricey for an old man like me. I used to live in CO for many years. Shot many a praire dog and rockchuck.

I have the ruger 10/22 composite stock/stainless. It was stolen from my garage as it was in one of my AR cases - punks thought they were getting something better lol! Police called 2 months later later and said they found it in a tree minus my Leupold and a few spots of rust.

Now it serves as a varmint killer with a little Simmons scope on it. My father has the same model with no scope and we can't seem to get the open sights dialed in. (this is user error i am sure) Point is, my 10/22 gets a lot more action with the scope

I'm glad you got it back. That's a rare thing.

I've scoped mine also, but I do have other firearms that I have added red-dot sights to. Changing the dot size to suit the distance, or size of target, makes it easier to hit where I aim in my case. Your mileage may very.
