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...
