Why bother when you can buy a Marlin 795 for $129 and outshoot a K1022 (target model) right outta the box?
And for those that ain't seen it done...
Edit: I'm issuing a personal challenge, unrelated to the wider /r/guns match, which I am not entering given my involvement as judge. If anyone here beats my target (which I'll post this weekend, after I shoot it) with ANY NON-RUGER .22 rifle, regardless of optics or other modifications, I'll season a hamburger patty with the powder contents of a 7.62x54R cartridge and consume said hamburger patty, unadorned by other condiments, on camera. This is an opportunity for all those who decry the 10/22 as inaccurate to illustrate the superiority of their chosen rifles.
My rifle is unmodified, save for a sling, bolt return buffer, and tech sights. I will shoot two targets for practice that day, followed by the one for the books.
He ended up eating the gunpowder burger...lost to Marlins...lol
then this 'un...
A fair Marlin Ruger rifle test. - RimfireCentral.com Forums
And pimping of a 795 can be done...more often less expensively than other rifles...
Oh, almost forgot the P90 stock project...
