Are the two 10/22's linked in my post not "base models"? The underlined sections of text in the post above are links to the products I mentioned, use them to see if they're the same 10/22's you're referring to.

Something you seem to keep forgetting, the base model 10/22 is not a takedown rifle like the Henry Survival. Which is the reason the Henry costs more to manufacture than the base model Ruger. It's also the answer to your question of why the Ruger is a few dollars cheaper than a Henry. Although both can be purchased for just over $200 each, as proven in the links above.

If this fabled $180 new 10/22 exists, and I'll need the name of the gun shop in your area to verify, I would figure the seller has too many in stock and is trying to get rid of them or he may be trying to bring in new/more business by making very little profit on these rifles. It's also possible Ruger has recently reduced the price of the 10/22.

If you think there's anyone who can't assemble a Henry takedown rifle, there's something wrong with that picture.
There's nothing wrong with me knowing some people are so inexperienced they can't perform the simplest tasks. There are some surprisingly inept people out there, I'm sure at least one of them has bought a Henry or two. It's a fact, whether you want to accept it or not. I'm not speculating, I've seen it and sometimes I have to wonder how these people managed to tie their own shoes.

a joke and I'll never come off of it.
The fact you have an unnatural hatred for Henry products isn't in dispute. Right or wrong, you'll ride it to the bitter end. Although your rants and complaints are nothing if not amusing.

the quality control was, in jennings' case, & is, in Jimenez's case, so hit or miss, you don't know if you've got a decent one or not until you fire it. it's best not to take the chance, no matter how tempting the price can be
LOL you reminded me an old movie called "Used Cars". i worked at the service department of a dealership and they used to have a movie party and watch it every few months.

Thanks to the posts on the RG term... gotta ask if you don't know, right?

Turns out the bore tightened in the middle and flared at both ends. Ruger claimed it was "in spec" as long as the bore was larger than .220 and smaller than .230. I had a taurus PT 22 that was crap, bore was so rough it would lead excessively at the 20-30 round mark and cease to function, a Rohm 22 short revolver that was the most horrible handgun of all time (it actually failed to put down my daughters terminally ill pet hamster! The barrel was pressed to the critters head and the gun still missed!), an intratec tec 22 that was great for a brief time and then fell apart and numerous centerfire guns that were pure excrement. Ain't shootin fun?
22 rohm short, for such a small gun it is extremely loud.

Default Ruger 22/45

Any Ruger 22 is a good gun. I have a Mark 111 22/45 which was a pain in the butt. I realized it was the loaded chamber indicator putting pressure on the round and pushing it off center of the ramp. I pulled the pin and removed it. The gun runs fine now. Just keep it clean.

I have a Remington 597 that I absolutely hate. Hasn't worked right from the day I bought it.

If you have the plastic mag from the first series, replace it with a newer steel mag...
should help a LOT!!

Similar issues as the 522 Viper...except they never figured out what the heck was wrong with those

Or heck, trade it in on a Marlin 795 so you get smaller groups & less headaches!!

Great advice on the 795 shrek. Oh and btw you might want to check your subforums post on Marlin owners

I have problems with the original plastic mag and the latest and greatest steel mag. Failure to eject; trigger won't reset, etc. I cleaned it up, loosened the guide rod set screws to no avail. I really don't want to dump money into it to get it to work right. It should come that way from the factory. I am very close to trading it in.

Trigger reset issues are usually stock/action/trigger group alignment issues...usually...
FTE could also be stock/action misalignment...but given that its a 2000+ Remington...you never can tell...
they either get 'em dead nuts right, or horribly wrong

Default Marlin 60's cheap gun?

I think Marlin60's are one of the best rifles ever made for the American public to afford and enjoy. I've owned several, still do. Keep 'em decently cleaned and shoot a clean ammo, not any cheap box of 500 rds for 17.99 either. I mean good ole mini mag CCI works great. Any .22 rifle rimfire will jam after 20-30 rds if shooting dirty burning ammo. If it don't ur lucky. Best of luck getting ur gun. Marlin, Ruger, Henry, you can't mess up too bad buying any of those. At least a bad one of those brands won't cost an arm an leg to begin with so not great loss
