    Just picked up a Ruger 10/22 for plinking. This is the second one I've had - traded the first one for a single six revolver many years ago. I mounted a Nikon Prostaff 4x30 scope I had laying around.

    Looking forward to burning cheap ammo again.

    Not yet. One day I'd like a heavy barrel and better stock -- perhaps a target trigger?

    I'm in the same boat, shooting mine stock for now. If I had $60 I'd send it off to Stalkingbear (forum member) for the trigger job but I don't so I can't. From what I've read it's not too complicated to take on yourself...

    NICE acquisition!!! Its on the want list...make it a law, maybe i can get it with my ammo stamps. (those are like food stamps for gun nuts:rolleyes:;):D)

    I've shot a few and they are nice. I should get one for the youngest.

    10/22 is a staple of life. Both of my kids stepped up to one after mastering their pellet guns.

    Of course they aren't just for kids.

    You don't have to do a thing with it for it to be fun. I shot that thing for about 15 years before changing anything on it at all. Of course once you start, you can't stop. I have a few others that I just had to build up.
    They are super fun and stupid cheap to shoot all day long.

    If anyone ever ask you if you would like to shoot there custom ruger 10/22 say NO. Don't Do It. Or will cost you over time. We have 2 of them and there is darn near nothing original left on ether one. But those tiny groups are fun to shoot.

    Does any serious accumulator not own a 10/22? I cannot justify any mods to my stock rifle since it is so accurate and FUN to shoot.
    I can understand people making Tacticool mods and competition shooters swapping out barrels, triggers, etc. but for me this is the most accurate rifle I own and I would not change a thing.

    You think it's accurate now; try building it up. It'll give you a stiffy knocking squirrels out of a tree at 100 yards.

    I put a match grade sporter barrel on mine and that alone made it go from shooting quarter sized groups at 75 yards on a calm day to punching a ragged hole at the same distance on a calm day.

    Beautiful gun but that mannlicher stock will be a pain in the arse if you plan on squirrel hunting with it much. Iv been wrong before though.

    Why do you say that?

    I'm considering this stock/barrel setup:

    Hornet Custom HCSRS

    Tactical Solutions TS1022-MB

    They get heavy quick and because they are pretty long for a 10/22 they snag on stuff pretty easy. It wld be great for plinking though. Are you planning on hunting w it more than just plinking around w it?

    Nope, no hunting, just target fun. I did pick it up also as a good survival type gun if ever needed. Figured it would be good for small game.
