The 10/22 carbine is a nice gun. The best mod I made on mine was having Stalkingbear do a trigger job on it. I love the gun now.

E. Arthur Brown has good compatible 10/22 mounts & rings if you ever decide to get another set.

I think most of us would recommend the 10/22 for anybody looking at that caliber...it's just a classic.

Thanks, 7. I will definitely have to get something other than this.

I just got back from the range. I'm a pathetic shooter! But I have time to practice. In any case, I did get to set the scope up and after about an hour of trial and error, more error than trial, I had quarter groups at 50 yards (stellar for me). I tried a mag full at 100 yards. After the second shot, I realized it was about 4 inches low. After 8 shots, I hit a 2 inch target. Scope needs a little bit more tweaking, but at least I know where I stand.

I don't know about the rest of you, but that was a successful day!

Also shot a few mags of my Thunder 380 and Tanfoglio Witness 45ACP. I didn't know what to expect with the 45, being the first time I shot it, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, recoil-wise. We will NOT discuss the size of the groupings, as there is not a big enough denomination available to cover.

Any day shooting should be considered a successful day.

The .45ACP scares people, but the recoil is quite manageable and is more of a push than a kick. Folklore dies hard.

I dont want to start any holy wars but you said something about hunting
and you usually have to have an accurate rifle ... unless the target
is real big ( not likely with a 22 ) or real close. I dont want to
describe accuracy but you DO want to go out and see what the
rifle ( and YOU) can do to a bulls eye from a bench rest at difference
distances and with different ammo. Caution, at least in my gun
the more powerful ammo that you seemingly would want to hunt
with is way more INACCURATE. So you have the choice to maybe
hit it hard or having a much better chance of hitting the target
easy.
To sum it up, I wont hunt with my 10/22 EVER now that I have
a savage bolt action 22 with scope. It shoots MUCH MUCH better.
But the 10/22 is more fun spraying bullets at objects floating
down a stream etc.
Yea the 10/22s are legend and are a classic but dont confuse with
shooting well ( when you define well as having any kind of accuracy)

Thanks for that opinion Preventec. This was my first rifle purchase, and the weeks leading up to it, I think I went to the actual end of the internet and back reading everything I could. When I got done, I had more questions than answers. My best friend, someone I trust implicitly, and who had grown up on rifles, narrowed my choice down to the 10-22. He said his was the most accurate 22 he's shot, and his father agrees (who taught him to shoot). So, not knowing anything except the trust of my best friend, I went ahead with the 10-22.

Now, with that said, what's done is done. Right now, I only want to get as proficient as I can with this gun. When it comes time to hunt small game, I'll see if this works for me or not. I've never hunted before, so again, I will be relying on good friends to teach me everything. One way or another, for the time being, this gun is going to kill small game, even if I have to beat them over the head with the butt.

The really good news is, this gun is a highly sought after gun. I visited pawn shops who wanted more than I paid new, and only a fraction of all the places I visited, pawn, or online, had them in stock. So if I need to get rid of it and find something that works better, I'll have no problem doing it.

For now, it's showing me the mechanics of shooting. I'll never be as good as my friend, but I was pleased that my first time ever shooting, after I set the scope up, I was hitting the bullseye just about every time at 50 yards. I only tried 10 shots at 100 yards, but after compensating for the 50 yard scope setup, I hit a two or three inch piece of target I was shooting for.

There's a huge difference in accuracy in rifles of any caliber, not just .22's. In .22's, a CZ or Thompson Center rifle will be much more accurate than a 10/22.

However, for all intents and purposes, a 10/22 will get the job done.

Just enjoy your 10/22 Fretter.

Sure a bolt action will usually be more accurate out of box, but a bone stock 10/22 with a load that it likes will get the job done out to 30-40 yards IF you do your part.
