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
