Default The Ruger 10/22 at 50!!

This year marks the 50th Annv. Of the 10/22. Ruger celebrates and commemorates the 10/22 with a 50th Annv. Model, available until 2/28/15, and all models produced until then with have the "50 years" roll mark... Thoughts?

Are the anniversary Blackhawks with the XR3 frame worth any more than a regular blackhawk? Most of the anniversary blachhawks have been modified with a birdshead stock. The same thing will happen to the anniversary 10/22's. Only a few with special serial numbers will be worth big money. The rest will be shot to death or made tacti-cool.

Not sure which one I will get before the end of the year. I like the interchangeable stocks from the Am. Rimfire, that went on the Contest winner model, but I'd rather get the takedown model. I already have a 20 y.o. 10/22 with a Tapco stock.....

I like the Henry AR7 take down. I would truly use the Henry as a take down. The Henry is priced right at around $225. The Ruger is compact when broke down. The Henry breaks down to be stowed in the waterproof stock. The Henry only weighs 2.5 lb.

I have a stainless steel 10/22 that is my favorite gun. The 10/22 needs very little maintenance. The only gun I own that can compare is my G19. I can tell you right now the Glock will not keep up the 10/22 when it comes to trouble free rounds fired without cleaning. The Glock doesn't need a lot of care. It does need to have the trash brushed off the feed ramp every couple hundred rounds to be trouble free. I could fix this issue by polishing the feed ramp but polishing would take the rust resistant coating off the feed ramp. I can easily shoot 1,000 rounds through the 10/22 without any care. More than once my niece has shot well over 1,000 rounds through the 10/22 in a week without cleaning the rifle. I just give the rifle a light coating of Safariland CLP when I clean it.

it depends. on how many of them they make with the "50th" rollmark. usually to have some future value, there needs to be only a certain amount made. then if that particular gun were left in it's box and left unfired for a good number of years, it's possible it could have collectors value in the future.

but if all of them are getting the same rollmark up until a certain date, IMO, no so much future value. it will be a little more special than the year before and after, but i doubt it will increase it's future value over them by much.

Well,..the entire line gets the "50 years" roll mark from 2/1/14 to 2/28/15, but only one model is the "contest winner" edition. It's also the most expensive 10/22 outside of a custom job. Mine has a heavy .920 bull barrel from JARD, but I "tacticooled" it out with the Tapco stock long before that was common. The Mz. Loves it, but like every woman she wants "her own", and she'd really rather have a bolt gun( like the American Rimfire compact) or the Henry lever action. I also like the NRA/Davidsons take down version. Either way, the next one gets the "full treatment" including a good optic. I've also decided to get the byods stock Axxe,...and a traditional scope for the Mossberg,. So now I have two TruGlo 2x42 Prismatics. One is going on my 20 Ga. Mossberg semi-auto. But they aren't strong enough at only 2X fixed to put on any rifle except a 22.....

John, I had a older AR7 years ago. The Henry's work much better, but don't accept extended mags. I had a friend in my reserve unit that was a metal worker in civilian life. He had made two 8 rounders into 12 rounders for me with a new base plate/ lower housing and replaced springs. KFox tells me the 15's and 20's don't work in the new guns from Henry. Limbkiller: I think John Deer was describing the Henry over the 10/22 take down for it's size,...which is a viable comment. Then again, if I needed a real "Take down" gun for emergencies, the TNW Areo with 2 calibers( 9MM & .22LR) would fit in the same size bag ( just about) as the 10/22 takedown,,,and comes with a bag and a ballistic plate....
