If anyone ever ask you if you would like to shoot there custom ruger 10/22 say NO. Don't Do It. Or will cost you over time. We have 2 of them and there is darn near nothing original left on ether one. But those tiny groups are fun to shoot.

Does any serious accumulator not own a 10/22? I cannot justify any mods to my stock rifle since it is so accurate and FUN to shoot.
I can understand people making Tacticool mods and competition shooters swapping out barrels, triggers, etc. but for me this is the most accurate rifle I own and I would not change a thing.

You think it's accurate now; try building it up. It'll give you a stiffy knocking squirrels out of a tree at 100 yards.

I put a match grade sporter barrel on mine and that alone made it go from shooting quarter sized groups at 75 yards on a calm day to punching a ragged hole at the same distance on a calm day.

I never owned one...until today! Just picked it up and mounted my Redfield scope on it. Going to the range tomorrow.

Beautiful gun but that mannlicher stock will be a pain in the arse if you plan on squirrel hunting with it much. Iv been wrong before though.

Why do you say that?

I'm considering this stock/barrel setup:

Hornet Custom HCSRS

Tactical Solutions TS1022-MB

They get heavy quick and because they are pretty long for a 10/22 they snag on stuff pretty easy. It wld be great for plinking though. Are you planning on hunting w it more than just plinking around w it?

Nope, no hunting, just target fun. I did pick it up also as a good survival type gun if ever needed. Figured it would be good for small game.
