I've got two 10/22's, a bone stock 1967 model and a 2008 stainless that has been customized some. They both shoot great and we've had endless fun days at the range plinking away with them. We use Federal 550 bulk ammo from Walmart almost exclusively. Match ammo isn't worth the extra cost to us since we're not competing for Top Shot or anything. The groups shown were shot off a bench at 50 yards.

Here's a couple of photos:

you are right Ruger is not working as hard to manufacture the 10/22 but on the other hand the 10/22 has the dependability that the savage does not have also the 10/22 has been in production for a longer time and it lasts a lifetime wich is why for now it is the most popular .22 and you can buy alot more modifications

Don't under estimate what an old bolt action .22 can do. My Remington 510 Targetmaster can score as well as Snakedriver's if I do my part. Those are great groups at 50 yords.

Oh, did I mention I have an old '42 Rem. 512 Sportmaster that does some good shooting too?

I have one but it's my least favorite. It's reasonably accurate and dependable but it doesn't get used much.

The Ruger 10/22 has been called the "short-block Chevy of the gun world." After market parts and gadgets are mind boggling. I own a Marlin Glenfield, mod. 60 (18 round tube mag) that I received as a gift round about 1977 or so. It developed problems over the years and I put it away in one of my safes and bought a 10/22 in 1998, just to have a .22 rifle on hand. I wasn't all that pleased with it, and didn't shoot it much.

Fast forward to 2001, when I retired from the cop shop. I took a job with Leupold, where I wormed my way into a friendship with one of their engineers and world class shooters. We were talking over coffee one day about .22 rifles, and I described the problems I had with the Ruger. He said to bring it in, and he'd see what he could do. A few hundred bucks for a new barrel, stock, scope and internal parts, plus some time on a CNC milling machine, and my so-so 10/22 is now a tack driver. I'm very pleased with it.

A couple of weeks ago while visiting a gunsmith friend, I took the Marlin from it's spot in the safe to see if he could do anything with it. About an hour later, after a through cleaning , I got my Marlin back in like new condition and it shoots as good as ever. Now I have two tack driver .22's.

Now that's food for thought. A few hundred bucks over cost against a good cleaning for a bone stock Marlin. Hmmmm.
