ruger 10-22 the thoughts on the new back packable model?
 
What are your thoughts about the way it beaks apart and snaps back together... Satajet...

The Takedown, it's seems like a great option. I've got it on my short list...

Have you seen it in the flesh? The ends seem a bit weird(very big gap) where the receiver and breech butt up or should butt up...

I've looked at many- -it is a solid design. But other than transport, I don't see any advantage.

I like the concept, just don't know how durable the weapon is after it's been apart a few times.

I came to the same conclusion. Thanks

I felt it was questionable construction and that normal ware and tare was a negative.

I own one. I have taken it to the range several times. I feel the joint mechanism is very good. It even provides an adjusting collar or nut that is used to take out any gap between the halves. I do not think that I will be needing it any time soon. I feel the materials are top notch and the gun is always at zero after re-assembly.
The cons are limited customization options, the non-takedown model is better at this as you can do whatever you want.
Overall, a solid accurate rifle.

If you really need a take down rifle there are a couple thats maybe a little better for the needs that have a longer history behind them.
http://henryrepeating.com/rifle-survival-ar7.cfm It is 2.5lbs with loaded mags. Shipping weight is 3.5lbs.

The other great choice but costly choice is the old browning 22 . The rifle was also made 40 or 50 years ago by remington and copied by norico and all shoot to a level thats hard to believe. Great rifles.
