How much do you have to spend? A new 10/22 can be got for $275. Used are hard to find because nobody gets rid of them.
leave the cannoli - take the gun
I would not want to spend much more than about $500, as I am on a budget. I guess I should have phrased the question as the top 5 choices that are equivalent in price and quality. What would your suggestions be?
OK based on that, I'd STILL get the 10/22 lol. You would have money left over for optics, and the 10/22 has more aftermarket accessories than all other .22lr's combined.
In my opinion, Ruger has everyone else's tail kicked when it come to this caliber. Rifles and pistols both. Nobody is close IMHO
