It's a great caliber. I would recommend a bolt action unless you already have other semi auto rifles. Check out Savage Arms, affordable and high quality. I can hit a quarter at 50 yards consistently. If that's too much for you (almost $300) check out some of the Remington 597 rifles or even a Ruger 10/22, I would stay away from the 10/22 Takedown unless your a doomsday prepped or an avid camper. Just my $0.02

HIGHLY recomend the 10/22 takedown. Ive got one and it returns to zero each time with no issues. Reliability has been 100% with ruger mags. Accuracy at 100yards with cci blazer is between 1.5 and 2 inches.

Only issues are with dud rounds you get from time to time in almost any brand of 22lr.

I think its one of the best 22's out there. Definately the best semi auto.

My wife loved mine so much she went out and bought her own 10/22 Breakdown! The 10/22 is the ideal semi-auto and nobody does it better. Ruger BX-25 give you a 25-shot capacity and feed reliably.

No reason.

Another reason to get one is super super super easy cleaning. One of the huge issues with regular 10/22 is you have to either takethe barrel off to clean or clean from the muzzle. Cleaning from the muzzle can easily damage the crown leading to accuracy issues. Taking the barrel on and off a standard 10/22 return to zero can be a problem. The takedown removes that problem.

My takedown seems to run cleaner than a regular 10/22. Ive been shooting 10/22's since 1986.

Voice of experience: get the takedown

The 10/22 that I am building has a 1/4" hole in the back of the receiver for cleaning. So no cleaning from muzzle or barrel removal. You remove the action from the stock, remove the trigger assembly and bolt and then the plug from the back of the receiver. Then you can clean from the chamber.

I'm sure you've done your research but Henry makes a .22 takedown as well...

Just some food for thought...

Yea the ar7 is notorious for jamming and missfeeds if you want a take down than Marlin papoose or 10/22 takedown for ease of putting together 10/22 takedown. I have both and papoose is a good takedown, 10/22 is a good rifle.
