Be sure it's not the 10/22 shorts that Walmart mostly carry even though your new to shooting and firearms u can Handel a full size 22 rifle just fine the 10/22 shorts are too small IMHO but other then that 10/22 is the best 22 gun I have ever owned and I do have a savage they are super accurate but ruger are much More fun to shoot and just as accurate
Wish u good luck and welcome to the world of shooting be safe and have fun

If you're looking at a semi-auto Savage I'd look elsewhere. They don't make the best semi-auto rifles. If the Savage you're looking at is a bolt action (and for that price it probably is) I'd buy it in a heartbeat over the Ruger. But it depends on what you want in a rifle. If you want a semi-auto clearly you should get one. If you want accuracy that goes well beyond the price you pay get the Savage. It should be considerably more accurate than the Ruger.

I have nothing against Rugers. I own a Ruger pistol. I'm not one of the people that think Ruger rimfires are the greatest ever. Clearly they are not. I'd buy a Marlin over a Ruger semi-auto rimfire to be honest. In fact I've done just that many times. But if you like tinkering and changing your rifle around then a Ruger isw a good choice. They aren't really a bad choice for anything. There are just better choices for accuracy and for price. Some 10/22's will shoot pretty well out of the box but most will require substantial upgrades to match the accuracy of a Marlin 60. I've seen that several times in fact where brand new Rugers were compared against brand new 60's. The 60's were more accurate every time I ever saw a heads up comparison of brand new rifles. And they were always cheaper too. A new 60 costs $160. A new Ruger costs at least $200 and often it's hard to find one at that price.

Also keep in mind that rimfires are picky with ammo so you may have to try a few to find some that cycle well and shoot accurately.

I suggest you pick them up,shoulder them and see which one fits you the best! I like my 64. I have two Ruger 10-22's and they are collecting dust. Cliff

You're the first person I've seen say that. I'm glad to hear the news about Savage semis isn't all bad. They make such fantastic bolt action rifles it's a shame their semi-autos aren't better.

I bought my 64 at Dicks in Leominster,MA.I paid 159.00 dollars for it, it has a tiger striped Birch stock, it is gorgeous. The rifle came with a scope and shoots nicely. I also have 4 Marlin 60's. The 2 Rugers I have ,have been collecting dust,and will be for years to come until someone makes a fair offer. Cliff

My money would go towards a 10/22. You can't beat either for quality but as far as aftermarket you can't beat a 10/22.

Default My two-cents

A couple of months ago I sold my Ruger 10/22 which I had owned since 1995. It was a great rifle and I do miss it.

Why did I sell it? For me I would treat each 10-round magazine as if it was one bullet. I had purchased a breakbarrel pellet gun earlier in the year and after shooting that in the backyard for awhile I realized how much more carefully I pulled the trigger when autoloading wasn't available.

I now own a Savage Mark II FV (plastic stock - heavy barrel) and could not be happier. I am certain that I'll own a 10/22 again sometime but at this point shooting a bolt action has made me a better shooter. Like a previous poster said I simply mounted my scope (UTG 4-16x40) and worked my way through a variety of ammo. Now I'm shooting 100-yard / 5-shot groups that average 1.5 inches with CCI SV ammo. I really don't think my scoped 10/22 could have done that.
