Drinking the 10/22 Kool-Aid
 
Well all the talk about the virtues of the Ruger 10/22 platform won me over and I just placed an order for this model. Looking forward to some cheap, fun plinking at the range. At this rate I'll never get that AR built.

Sweet, congrats

It's just a small dent in the budget and you'll wonder why you waited so long. :cool:

Great cheap fun...

My 17 yr old learned basic rifle marksmanship behind the same Ruger. I picked it up when he was 6 and noticed the dealer had 4 beat up 10/22 stocks leaning in the corner. Paid $5.00 for the second stock. We measured, cut it down "to fit his 6 yr old frame", sanded and re-finished it together. As he grew we eventually put the original stock back on.

Funny thing is now I own a fairly nice collection of much more exciting guns and I provide the ammo, but he still reaches for that 10/22 first.:)

good job. You'll love that lil' plinker. I bought the butler creek stock and bull barrel combo for $150 and a simmons 22 scope for mine. My BIL and I have competitions on who can make the smallest hole with 25 rounds.:D They're tack driver's!

The only thing better than having a 10-22 is having two! Congrats on your new purchase. There's a TON of things and crap you can do to them to get it doing whatever you might want it to do. It's hard to deny the rifle and ammo cost vs all the plinking fun.

I agree you will wonder why you waited so long getting one. I've had several 22 rifles over the years. I've liked the 10-22's the best by far.

The aftermarket parts orgy begins....
 
Any suggestions for a scope for the rifle shown above? Use will be 100% plinking at 25-50 yds, 100 yds max, no hunting, pest control at all.

I was thinking of a 3-9x32 or 40 on high rise mount so I could still use iron sights. Don't want to double gun price so $100 top end on scope, mounts, rings, etc. Does it matter that it's a rimfire versus centerfire scope, if so why?

Are the triggers really in need of work out of the box and will that matter at 25-50 yards? Bear????

Thanks for any replies....

i would love one of these with the krinker plinker stock but 300 plus just for the stock aint cool. The m-4 set-up is nice as well and affordable

This is what I have and I love it. Matches what you want.
