Default Ruger 10/22 VS. Kel-Tec PLR-22

I was wanting to get the kel tec plr-22 for a while and put a forend on it. but i cant stop thinking about how everyone love's their 10/22's. i was thinking. how would a kel-tec with a forend stand up to a ruger 10/22 with a tapco intrafuse stock system? thanks.

Kel-tec can't compare to the 10-22, it doesn't have near the amount of aftermarket parts and mags, and personally I haven't seen any kel-tecs that I like, they all just look retarded

The Ruger definitely has more accessories available. I love my dad's 10/22 and I know you can find tactical style stocks for them. I like the S&W 15-22 but it is a tactical .22 and you can not convert it to a standard rifle. I looked long and hard at a couple tactical .22s but eventually went with a standard style rifle as I know I can make it tactical if I want and switch it back when I get out of my "Tacticool" phase...

well, if you buy a tactical stock, you can use it for run n gun. then if you want to do target shooting you just put the original stock back on

Truthfully, you are comparing apples & oranges as they are two totally different systems that were designed for different purposes.

The bottom line is the 10/22 is a rifle while the PLR is a pistol. I have a PLR-16 (the 22's big brother) and essentially it's a SBR designed for close in shooting and/or personal protection and the 22 version is basically the same. OTOH, the Ruger is a rife, built for target shooting and hunting with accuracy at long (relatively) ranges. Probably the best compromise between both guns is something like S&W's M&P 15-22. FWIW, I have an M&P 15-22 and REALLY like it's versatility.

The 10/22 is just an all around classic.

The Ruger 10/22 has the most aftermarket parts/configuration options of any .22lr rifle.

Kel-tec makes decent equipment, but the 10/22 is the best hands down.

Although, in fairness, the marlin model 60 has sold more rifles.

If you plan on leaving it pretty close to factory configuration I would say 10/22, if you plan on customizing then I'd skip right over the Kel-tec and get a Smith & Wesson M&P15-22. They accept nearly any AR15 accessories.
