I wont be modding anything like triggers, barrels, etc. I'm not quite that advanced yet.... So how does these stack up? If I got the Ruger, I would however put on "taticool" accessories just for the fun of it, because all I am looking for right now is a fun gun. Thanks!
I got the Ruger,its great out of the box! I love mine.

I don't have a 10/22, but I do have the Henry and I love it. Excellent fit and finish and the nicest walnut stock to be found on any gun. Accurate as hell with the right ammo. This target was photocopied and reduced, so each square is actually 3/4" instead of 1". This was at 25yds. with open sights, and 52 yr. old eyes. But if you're into "tacticool" you probably don't own a cowboy hat or have a love of lever actions!

I have a 10/22 and a Henry. It's Henry hands down.

Thanks Tango, that was mighty white of ya. Unfortunately sometimes when I crop my pictures in Microsoft Picture-It, the program appends the blank backround to the pic - making the pic page sized, then if I try to shrink it, the graphic part of the pic shrinks too small to view...someday I'll figure it out!

Default Accurate .22's out the box?

it appears to be a Pro Ruger Blog, i have a ruger 10/22 stock and personally dot feel its all that out the box accurate as compared to a Taurus 72.

Ive shot different vintages and brands and calibers of rimfires
I had no expectations of the Taurus (kids gun) when my kid can load and hit stuff out box "POA" never messing with the sights that says something to me.

To bring a little sanity to this discussion ... Get a Henry H001. Accurate, a ball to shoot, smoothest action you ever saw. Holds nicely in one hand to come up on a bunny rabbit or squirrel in a hurry. And you don't have to spend a $1000 to guzzy it all up.

And if you are real lucky, you will find one with beautiful wood!




The Octagon barrel version of the H001 is also a super deal for only a few dollars more. Check out your local WallyWorld or dealer. TB

Canebrake, is there an electric grid melt down when you turn on everything at one time. What does that little jewel weight? I can understand the need for the bipod. Do you have wheels to aid in moving locations? A very interesting fire arm. I bet it gets comments at the range. DF

My experience is way limited. I can tell you I just purchased a 10/22. My local gun dealer doesn't carry 597s because he said they just don't sell. Also everyone on this forum, save one, recommended the 10/22. The BF HATES the trigger, and the sites leave a lot to be desired. That said, I hit a 12" round steel target at 100 yds. 10 times out of 10. The BF is still talking about it. My group isn't very tight at 50 yds, but as I said, I'm very new to this. The point is, I like the gun, and am having fun with it. I've done no modding. The BF added a scope to his. Take this from where it comes, a definite newbe.
