Default Which Ruger 10/22 should I get?

Hey guys,

I'm a bit new to shooting and thought I'd ask for some help here. I'd like to get a 10/22 for target shooting and to build out. They just look like a lot of fun. I know there are many versions of them. Any recommendations?

The Takedown looks like fun, but I didn't know if they were harder to customize because aren't they built differently? Are there as many options for them? Or am I better off starting with a different model.

I know the Takedown is hard to find, but I'm not in a hurry to get one. I can be patient.

Thanks for any feedback.

I have a takedown and honestly couldn't be happier. I have a BSA Sweet 22 3-9x40 on it, and am going to put on an auto bolt release. I also have a butler creek 25 round magazine that i use and i love it. I don't know what all you plan on doing with yours, but I can tell you it is a very nice unit and I love the fact that it comes with a bag that I can store EVERYTHING in. Also it is very easy to clean the barrel (being that it is a separate piece) and the action pops right out to clean with just undoing a screw. Hope this helps.

I don't own a ruger yet, but if I did and planned on modding it to the gills I would start with a base model wooden stick one, no sense buying a top of the line stocked one if your gonna change everything out anyways. Just my 02 cents

I agree with HOSS & cgersty.
I have two, both base carbines.
One that I "fixed" the way I wanted.
It hits 5 shots in 1/4" all day, everyday.
The other for beating branches.

If your intent is to Mod it, start with cheapest model you can find.
Good luck finding ANY in today's market.

6 diffrent 10/22's here. I have the takedown with a butler creek folding stock, threaded barrel, scope, trigger group, auto bolt release and more. Great gun, fits in a briefcase for stealth and shoots great.

Get what you want, not what everyone else thinks you should have. Just my two cents worth.

I have a stainless 10/22. I put a wilson combat buffer in it. I have a 4x fixed power Simmons scope on it. I never did anything to the trigger. A trigger upgrade would be useful if I was a target shooter. I shoot critters and steel with my 10/22. I have no problems popping a squirrel or a rabbit in the head with the stock trigger.

I had no interest in building and/or modifying a 10/22 so I got a Sports South exclusive model--it is all stainless with a full length black/grey Mannlicher laminated stock--this rifle is drop dead beautiful & shoots sub 1" groups @ 100 yards--has a BSA 3-9x40 scope on it with high mount rings to also use the open sights--I have exactly what I wanted in a 10/22

How much can you mod a Takedown? I'm assuming you can't use standard 10/22 stocks and barrels because of it's unique build. Am I right?

Thanks.

DO NOT rule out a Smith and Wesson M&P 15-22. I bought one and love it. It's very light, comes with a 25rd mag and is accurate as you are. It has a threaded barrel and you can apply for a permit for silencer. Operates just like my AR and I have added a red laser, scope and flashlight. Comes with a flash suppressor, If ur buyin on the cheap...nothing wrong with that..mossberg sells a tactical rifle too. Colt sells one too.
