[QUOTE=cpttango30;65088]Best bet would be to buy a cheaper more accurate rifle to begin with.
Cheaper. Yes,there are lower priced guns out there. But as far as being more accurate,I haven't seen any other brand of semi-auto 22lr that is anymore accurate out of the box and cost less than a 10/22,or one that has anywhere close to the aftermarket accessories or following of the 10/22.
And mu93ka,it would be cheaper for you if you just bought a 10/22T that comes from the factory with a bull barrel. Mine will shoot 1/2" groups at 75yrds with match grade ammo,not bad for a box stock 10/22T.
They come in blue and stainless,I have a blued one.
