ruger 10/22?
I always hear about the 10/22. ALWAYS. My only 22LR rifle is an old marlin my pops gave me. I love using it for squirrel, but frankly, i'd like to upgrade to something a little more tactical. What r everyone's thoughts on the 10/22 tactical? Or are other 10/22 models as easily customized as this one?

the ruger 10/22 is one of the most customizable rifles made. however, buying and installing all the custom do dats can get pricey quick. personally i dont care much for the look of a factory 10/22. when i come across a used one im going to get it but thats only for the reciever. i want a new stock, barrel, and trigger group. but thats just me. they are popular for a reason. they are easy to take apart and do the modifications..if its what you want get it.

They are also extremely reliable and tack drivers.

If you want the ruger to shoot better than your marlin? You may want to buy a ruger used rifle and build it your self over time so it does not hurt your wallet so much. Nothing about a 10/22 that you can't do at home. You can go to EABCO for a e b shaw barrel for 99 bucks some are cheaper out there. A Hogue overmolded stock stock runs 65 or less, Clark customs trigger kit for a way better trigger. Maybe a scope from walmart like the centerpoint 4-16 for 70 bucks. Buy a 10 buck weaver base. Save a nice amount of money,have rifle that will shot better and you built it.

This is my hunting 10/22 I paid 160 for the gun 100 for the tapco stock it went together nice fit where the front grip is there's a cover that slides on n covers it up when I go hunting I set it up that way I can't miss with this gun

With the right setup, it's can be a tack driver at 100 yards. Mine is stock and came with a scope. I'm shooting a 1 inch pattern at 50 yards. Don't see a need to go longer. Puts meat on the table.

So general consensus seems to be buy a used, and make it what i want it to be. Sounds good. I loved my AR build and loved customizing my 1911 so i don't see why this would be any different.

customizing a 10/22 can easily turn into an addiction. - forewarned

Kind of like buying a gun in general? Lol

Ahh, the 10/22 your standard meat and potatos gun. I have seldom missed a potato with it, and they don't run very far.
