Nice! I have a 352K that looks EXACTLY the same with the exception of the mag. My mag is 7 rds. capacity and shorter than the one in your pic. It jams with all ammo except cheap Remington yellow jackets. Bought it at Caldors in 1973 for $45. It was my first gun so it has a place in my heart.

My favorite would have to be the Ruger 1-/22 because of their reliability and because there are so many after market parts that are available that you can create anything you can envision. I wanted a classic Sporter and a Tactical style (or as some folks like to call them Tacticools). Thats the great thing about the 10/22, the only limitation is your imagination.

For me, it would have to be the Ruger 10-22. I prefer them over others because they are magazine fed semiautomatic rifles, and mine have proven themselves to be reliable, and plenty accurate for small game hunting in the field. Parts are easy to find just about anywhere in the lower 48 at least, and as NY Marksman mentioned, the availability of aftermarket parts allows me to turn it into just about anything I want to turn it into.
Lookin into taking a 10-22, and turning it into my version of an "M14 training rifle", using a modified USGI M14 synthetic stock.

My favorite two rifles. 10-22, and M14.

I have a hard time choosing. I still have my first rifle, a Winchester Model 47 (Christmas 1949, when I was six); it's single shot but heavy on sentiment. I now have Models 61 and 63 to further help relive happy childhood times. Dad gave me a Win 290 upon return from Vietnam. I've added two heavy barrel Rem 597s (.22LR & .22WMR), a Savage Mako, two Henrys (Golden Boy and Target), a Ruger 22/45 with red dot, Ruger Single Six (both cylinders), Ruger Bearcat (I was with Dad when he bought it new in '66) and two Sig Moquitos. I love shooting them all.

Default Which .22 cal rifle do you like and why........

For the original price, you will never beat the Winchester Model 310.....a single shot, bolt action, modeled after the Winchester Model 70....pistol grip, checkered, sling brackets and accepts a scope. Mine had beautiful bluing and just great looking all around. It sat, alone, on its rack in a Woolco Dept. Store (long since gone out of business) in Richmond, Virginia and I would go there and look at it for several weeks before I purcased it. Afterwards I added the sling and a Tasco scope and thought it was the most beautiful rifle around. But, to also answer the question, I bought it for squirrel hunting. Never did like the idea of hunting squirrels with a shotgun. It was so accurate that the single shot was all you ever needed for this hunting. I once amazed a nephew by shooting a hole in a tree, then take the spent shell, stick it in the bullet hole and with another single shot, drive the shell out of sight into the hole. I also took my daughter into the woods to squirrel hunt and she could knock them from the trees at the distances I was shooting. But, at that time I owned a Volkswagen Superbeetle into which I had installed a CB radio and had the rifle in the boot from a trip to West Virginia the weekend before. At that time CB radios were great theft items, and of course they had to break into my car and steal the radio. And the worst part was that in the glove compartment was the lever that released the boot. I guess it is self explanatory what happened to my rifle. Every since then, I always look for them at different places, but have never found one that looked as good as this one. I would like to find one that is in this condition. The gentleman that said he found one at a gun show and was able to purchase it for $100, I could hardly believe. He definitely got a great buy and will enjoy shooting it for the rest of the time. If you tire of it, just let me know and I'll take it off your hands.
