Took the 10/22 Takedown on her maiden voyage yesterday. Took about 50 rounds to zero and then 200 rounds @ 25 yards, open sights, dead on bliss. Now, she's dirty!!!

Remember, some places require that the firearm have an expended shell casing for it as part of some useless registration scheme. Since nearly all ammo these days is non-corrosive, I wouldn't worry about it. Also, where .22s are concerned, there are people who won't clean them until accuracy falls off (sometimes thousands of rounds.) Life is short, go to the range, dirty it up yourself and don't worry about it.


That sounds like me, I got a single shot .22 when i was a kid (like 15 years ago) I've never run a brush down the barrel. About 1000-1500 rounds. I can still cut down saplings at 30 yards, accuracy good for now.

Here's 3-25 round mags at 25 yards open sights. Only 2nd range trip for this gun. It's a keeper.

Even my Walther pellet gun came with a test target, after all gotta know how it shoots when leaving the factory. But with a pellet gun no cleaning would've been necessary.

I sighted in a New CZ 527 today in .22 Hornet. What an incredible little rifle. I cleaned the rifle before going to the range. The CZ folks include a target to let you know that it was test fired for your safety. They also leave the bore fouled to prove your rifle was test fired. They could just print targets and ship clean barrels. I am only concerned when I see a new rifle with a clean barrel.

I just received my 10 22 takedown Dec 28th. Waited 3 months for it from factory via local dealer. Cleaned all my guns Dec 29th and or kicks ran a pad thru 10/22. Came out pretty clean. Looking forward to some range time soon.

I am impressed with Ruger, and love the "made in the USA" aspect as well

The 10/22 I have performs so flawlessly that I bought a Ruger SR 40 semi auto pistol. Still impressed! There seems to be a common theme with Ruger - sound design, rugged construction and simplicity to use and maintain. I have my eyes on a SR9 for my wife and the Mini 14's and 30's have my attention.......
