    It's a great caliber. I would recommend a bolt action unless you already have other semi auto rifles. Check out Savage Arms, affordable and high quality. I can hit a quarter at 50 yards consistently. If that's too much for you (almost $300) check out some of the Remington 597 rifles or even a Ruger 10/22, I would stay away from the 10/22 Takedown unless your a doomsday prepped or an avid camper. Just my $0.02

    HIGHLY recomend the 10/22 takedown. Ive got one and it returns to zero each time with no issues. Reliability has been 100% with ruger mags. Accuracy at 100yards with cci blazer is between 1.5 and 2 inches.

    Only issues are with dud rounds you get from time to time in almost any brand of 22lr.

    I think its one of the best 22's out there. Definately the best semi auto.

    My wife loved mine so much she went out and bought her own 10/22 Breakdown! The 10/22 is the ideal semi-auto and nobody does it better. Ruger BX-25 give you a 25-shot capacity and feed reliably.

    No reason.

    Another reason to get one is super super super easy cleaning. One of the huge issues with regular 10/22 is you have to either takethe barrel off to clean or clean from the muzzle. Cleaning from the muzzle can easily damage the crown leading to accuracy issues. Taking the barrel on and off a standard 10/22 return to zero can be a problem. The takedown removes that problem.

    My takedown seems to run cleaner than a regular 10/22. Ive been shooting 10/22's since 1986.

    Voice of experience: get the takedown

    The 10/22 that I am building has a 1/4" hole in the back of the receiver for cleaning. So no cleaning from muzzle or barrel removal. You remove the action from the stock, remove the trigger assembly and bolt and then the plug from the back of the receiver. Then you can clean from the chamber.

    Yea the ar7 is notorious for jamming and missfeeds if you want a take down than Marlin papoose or 10/22 takedown for ease of putting together 10/22 takedown. I have both and papoose is a good takedown, 10/22 is a good rifle.

    No trouble to report with my Henry ar7 survival model. I have been shooting CCI mini mags thru it.

    Love my 10/22 as well, not a takedown model though.

    and you could always opt for a take down shotgun! :D

    i'm surprised stoeger has never marketed it as such, but their coach gun breaks down and reassembles just as fast as the take down 10/22 i'd wager!!!

    but..back on topic....10/22's have earned their rep imo...i got one and it is reliable, accurate & dang fun! the take down should be a great choice! but i think any 10/22 would be a fine choice.

    and 22 ammo seems to be here & there lately..so its all good in the hood!

    I purchased a 10/22 takedown at the beginning of the year. It was something different and looked cool, plus at the time I had no room left in my gun safe for a rifle but the td fit when broken down.
    Never had an issue with it not holding zero after taken apart. LGS has a camo td that looks awesome, comes with a brown bag instead of a black bag.

    You can make the takedown look as good as it shoots

    Great gun. I've had mine for 9 months now. Restocked with the Butler creek folder(utube this mod). Fits in the bag now with full sized 3x9-40 scope. Look up cross pinned stocks on rimfire central, shrunk the group size by %50. Trigger job and I was happy, apx 3lbs. Quarter size groups at 75 yards. ;)

    Returns to zero just fine after removing the barrel. I got myself one of the aluminum brief cases at harbor freight. Fits great with my 16.5" barrel. And carrys an extra brick easy. Now wait for my paperwork and add the silencer...

    I don't really know what exactly your gonna use it for, but I would recommend just a basic ruger 10/22 synthetic stock, you customize sooo much, anything you ever wanted you can put on it, I've had just a basic 10/22 for 2 years, that thing has been to hell and back, the only problem I ever had was just jams, and those are rare

    I'm out on the truck for three more weeks so no pics for a while. Just search utube that's where I found the mod. All these look pretty much the same. Just a few small details of difference.

    Do look up cross pinned stocks on rimfire central. The stock reciever moves around a little with the butler creek folder, just 1 screw holds it in place. And its at the end of the action. Rear of action raises when you pull back on trigger.:(

    Best mod that I could make and cost less than $10 in parts since I was doing the stock anyway. Two more drilled holes and the receiver sits rock solid in the stock with no bedding. Mine was done with 3/16 inch solid pins drilled and tapped for 6-32 machine screws on each end. Pins replace triggerguard to reciever pins but are longer and go through the side of the stock. Put a low dome large head screw on each side, simple and elegant.

    I have recently seen a few restock jobs on the takedown with other stocks than the Butler creek folder. Rare but more options....

    If I had the time, I would consider building a wooden version of the stock and use the sidefold ar15 style stock with a wood car15 butt....
    Food for thought ;)

    I was saying because of a prepper because essentially your paying an extra $100 just so the gun can be folded. If your prepping compactness is very important. If your willing to spend another $100 the Takedown is good

    Gun Tests just did a side by side comparison of the leading

    three take downs on the market.

    The Ruger 10/22 easily danced away from the competition...
