Default Show of your favorite rimfire plinkers!

Well, don't know much about the AMT's' except they were Being made when Ruger couldn't keep up with demand,...There MIGHT be a few things Anna could do with It, but Like she said, no need to degrade the quality of the Rifle. I have seen some very Nice Looking 10/22's in My Day. It was my First Semi-Auto Rifle, long before all the customizing that takes place now. I sold that one When I left for Basic at 19 yrs. old,.The one I have now is 20+ yrs old. My Newest one isn't a 10/22, It's a Mossberg 702 that I'm modding(Ext. Mags.,a Sling, and eventually a Paint Job, An Optic I have, just waiting for the $ to go have it Mounted and sighted Correctly, a Bi-pod.) I have been shooting It with the 2 25 rd. mags for about 7 Months now, and they are finally Broken in(the Springs) that I can Now load 25 rounds and shoot, even "Rapid Semi auto" without a jam...as long as i'm not using bad ammo...

Yeah, I definitely wouldn't wanna change the rifle either. I was just wondering if they were essentially the same internally. I've never shot 10/22 or any variant. The only semiauto .22 rifles I've ever shot are my Remington Speedmaster and a really old Springfield (I think it may have been made by Savage) of my great grandfather's.

This combination was tested in Guns Magazine a couple of months ago and I liked the way it looked so the Ruger American Rimfire came from Wally World and the Redfield Battlezone TAC 22 2-7 scope came from Optics Planet. I haven't got out to shoot it yet but soon I hope.

I nearly got on of those but ended up going with a Colt/Umarex 1911 Government Model .22. I have plans to get one an use it as a replacement for my Model 41 to squirrel hunt with.
