I also have a 10/22 International that was Dad's. That one I will leave alone.
Nice!!! Good luck with your Tacticoolization!

Back in 1983 I tacticooled my 10/22. Yep, even back then they had aftermarket add-ons. I put a black polymer foreend, 30-round banana mags and folding "paratrooper" stock on mine. A versatile and classic 22.

I own a Ruger 10/22 and love it. Shoots almost anything, very few issues despite putting hundreds of rounds through it. I actually track stats on what I fire through my gun and I think overall it’s hovering at just over 99% with almost 1,100 rounds through it. Straight out of the box it’s a great gun though I recently mall ninja’ed/tacticooled mine. That’s not necessary though as new 10/22’s come with an optics mount if you really want something other than iron sights.

Accuracy is outstanding. I don’t personally have a problem with the trigger despite other feedback here. I will say that having owned and fired quite a few Rugers over the years their triggers do not have the best reputation.

Had mine out today. Almost no fun to shoot. Goes right where you point it, every time.

I've got one that I bought a couple years back. Absolutely love it and I have put countless thousands of rounds through it and they are as reliable as they come. Probably gonna trick mine out pretty soon.

Did 10/22s always have the circular type of clip they have now?

I would recommend going cheap on the 10/22. Your accuracy won't be a huge change in the el cheapo version or the high end versions, looks on the other hand will vary greatly.

Great .22, accessories are readily available as well. When you get magazines get the ones with METAL lips, avoid the plastic lipped magazines.

If you don't have a 10/22 you're a communist...
