Birthday present!
 
1 Attachment(s)
July 11 was my 15th birthday and I had $200 dollars and a red dot stored away. So we stopped by our favorite sporting good store Bob's and picked up the long awaited 10/22.
Its been 4 years since I've wanted one and I got three rifle between then and now but I got it.

Within an hour of getting it I took a brick of federal champion and remington thunderbolts(only one box of those)

I didn't really shoot for accuracy but I think I kept the majority of each box on each target. I was averaging about a 3" groups (25 yards off hand semi-rapid fire)

I have shot about 275 rounds in the last three days in that gun alone with 6 F.T.E's. That's better than my Glenfield/Marlin but there's one issue. Quality.

The 10/22 has a plasticy feeling trigger that can feel squishy at times but otherwise it feels mostly crisp. The reset is MUCH further than my Glenfield/Marlin.
Another little peeve I have is the plastic barrel band but that will be replaced so no big deal there.

Right now it is a standard carbine so there is no need to post pictures, everyone should know what one looks like.

But I hope to keep the price low on my modifications.

The first thing I am replacing is the trigger itself not the assembly but the trigger to get rid of the flexy plastic.

In time i want it to look like this but with a birch stock and a different scope

The bipod might alao change.

I have a feeling this will be my favorite rifle :D

Congratulations!

Have you seen the Ruger brand banana mags? http://www.midwayusa.com/product/238525/ruger-bx-25-magazine-ruger-10-22-22-long-rifle-25-round-polymer-black My buddy has complained much about his cheapo banana mag on his 10-22.

You have no idea how much I've been looking at 10/22 accesories.
Its kind of hard to decide between a target rifle a tacticool wannabe rifle or a overall practical mostly stock 10/22.

Ive decided between all three so I have some rails I have some accurizing and after that I still have the original stock.
And I can say its a little different from everybody elses :D
