.22 rifles (ruger)
 
Are they as good as people make them out to be?. I've watched quite a bit of videos and I can't find anything negative about them . I've never even shot one but in considering getting one . Wise?

A 10/22 is one of favorites to shoot. They just eat anything and go bang everytime. Ive got an all weather version an a sr22. Love them both!! An all the upgrades u can do just make it sweeter.

Pretty hard to find any negatives. Sometimes the trigger pull is kinda poor. I had a 77/22 in 22 mag that the accuracy was very poor but that was many years ago. Buy any Ruger gun and odds are you will like it. I have several and would not hesitate to buy more.

10-22
 
They are okay,they are not my choice for a .22. I personally prefer the Marlin 60. It has a slimmer design because of the tubular magazine. I also feel it is more accurate out of the box than the Ruger. I have two 10-22's and now they collect dust.BTW I bought the Rugers before I bought the Marlins! :) Cliff

Semi-auto rimfires...

Ruger 1022 is like the Chevy Nova of rifles...interchangable as heck,
but not the most precise out of the box of the inexpensive rimfires...
and its the second most popular semi-auto rimfire rifle with around 7.5 million sold since 1963...
reason for all the aftermarket?? Much like the Nova, everyone other than the MFR makes better parts...

Marlin 60 is like the Ford Mustang...The most popular with over 15 million sold since 1960...
there's a few toys available, but the precision is surprisingly good,
so they rarely actually need anything...as always, a trigger tune-up works wonders (DIP makes a nifty one!)

The Marlin 795 is like the Dodge Charger...fast, precise, and cranking up the sales...
same proven action as the 60, but with a box-mag instead of a tube...
they share accessories with the 60, most are interchangable...including stocks (Boyd's Stocks has the nice ones)
Champion makes a solid 25-rd mag (got three of those), works best if the 795 is bedded to take out the stock/action misalignment.
They're currently about a million & a half behind the 1022 in sales...

Remington 597 is like the Nissan Sentra...tighter groups than a base 1022,
but has intermittant mag issues that drive many owners nuts...
much like how the Sentra drives its owners nuts with little annoying problems...
Has a few accessories, some nifty stocks are factory options...
Note that my Remington Nylon 66 is more precise than the 597, and had no issues...
Remember that the 597 is the next generation of the 522 Viper with most of the same problems...lol
Last time I checked, the 597 was around 2.6 million in sales...

Mossberg's 702...really like a Yugo...
just go read the repair forums at RFC, it'll scare you off 'em...

That'll cover the big 5...I need to grab one of the new CZ semi's and one of the new RIA semi's and do a test with those!!
I'll figure out good car comparisons after testing the BLEEP out of 'em...hehehe

Great analogy.

I bought my first one in 1964 and have almost always had one around. They are a great little bunny and tin can buster out of the box and that is what it was intended to be. A fast handling fun little 22 rifle. After market accessories allow you to turn them into far more. Mine is pretty basic but I did install a better trigger and a bolt buffer. I have a red dot on it and I am not trying to shoot one hole groups. I have bolt action rifles for that. Last week my wife and I were shooting steel spinners offhand at 30 yards. I was using the 10-22 and she was using her S&W M&P 15-22. If you want tactical get that. She likes the adjustable stock on the S&W. We blew through a 525 pack of Federal with no problems. I had one of the mag fed Marlins and it got dirty quick and would start to jam after about 50 rounds where the Ruger would shoot through a brick and still keep going.

You won't regret buying a 10/22. I've owned two.

10/22's are pretty good out of the box, and you can modify them to do whatever you want.

I recently purchased a Ruger 10-22, brand new. When I got it home, there was no clip with this new rifle. I called Ruger, and they will be sending me a new clip, and a BX-25 clip as well. So, I went down to my local Cabelas, and bought me a BX-25, until I get the one Ruger is sending me. Took my son to the range last weekend, and that little rifle is awesome! We put at least 200 rounds through it the first time out, and it never jammed once. However, I have very thick glasses and will be buying a scope in the very near future.
