You might look at the ruger sr22 a little bit of both worlds

I don't have an AR platform and don't plan to get one soon.

I have a 10-22 and my wife has a 15-22. My wife loves the 15-22 mainly because the stock adjusts to her. I like it because she is learning how to shoot the AR. It is a great little gun and fun to shoot but not one to really modify. The 10-22 is much better suited to that. Just dont try to buy any high cap mags right now.

Either one is a good choice I just personally like the 15-22 because it is a dedicated .22 ar.

PG, personally i would go with the 10/22 because of the aftermarket support in making it an incredibiy accurate rifle. the right barrel and trigger group, a really good scope and some tinkering and you will have a rifle that shoots nothing but one ragged hole groups! IMO, the 10/22 has more potential at being more of a target rifle.

And this will sound silly but I have seen the M1 carbine kits and other similar kits. I think that'd be cool.......kinda like dressing up your gun. "What will my rifle wear to the range today?"

My wife has a 10-22 and I have a 15-22.
I shoot both and at 50 yards with a scope they are virtually equal in accuracy in my opinion. At 100 yards the Ruger 10-22 is more accurate than the 15-22. Perhaps it is my lack of skill...rather new to this...but I shoot both seated with a rest...a stable platform that relies less on my skills.

I like them both. They are both very reliable guns. I give the nod to the 15-22 for ease of take down for cleaning. It is easier to take it apart and clean. The Ruger is a tad lighter and also less expensive than the 15-22. The 15 is, to me, more fun to shoot.

You won't be disappointed with either.

The 10/22 is such a versatile platform, you can make it just about anything you want, from mild to wild, plinking to target. The 15-22, on the other hand is just what it is and nothing more or nothing less. It'd be a great trainer for someone with an AR but IMHO you can do more with the 10/22 and it'd probably be a bit cheaper to get into right now too. JMHO, YMMV.
