    Now that I know my ruger 10/.22 fires, i am buying a bunch of cool stuff for it. My first purchase: this A full quad rail system. What do you guys think? Good purchase or waste? Also, what should I do about sights? I do not want a scope, either red dot or iron sight add on like the magpul backup sights, but who wants to pay $100 for plastic? I am happy with the rail purchase but kind of nervous about the sight issue. Reviews says that there is a bit of a visible section of the ruger iron sights but don't expect too much. Please help, I appreciate it!

    If it were me, first thing is get the trigger worked on, Just a smoothing out or a drop in to get the pull down to under 3lbs. Sights are second. If you are shooting 25 to 50 yds, irons or red dot kewl, more than 50 yds, get a scope. I take it you have a tactical version or are you trying to make it one, pics will help. Williams makes a nice peep sight, I have it on one of my 10/22's and love it. You can use it in conjuction with a red dot if you put the red dot on a riser. As for putting rails on and making it look evil, make it work smooth and sight in well first, then you can play with the extra weight that doesn't mean much. Just my 2 cents.

    If you want an AR style rifle buy an AR style rifle. You are going to take $250 gun and spend $500 to turn it into a $200 gun. The M&P 15-22 has all the same controls, rails and breaks down the same way as an AR. Easiest semi to clean. I paid $150 for my 10-22 and dropped in a $100 trigger and delrin buffer. The trigger included a new mag release and bolt release. The stock is a Butler Creek that came with it and I modified slightly. It shoots pretty well. I have a TRS25 red dot on it. It came with a 2nd stock that I traded for a new factory barrel.

    Good call.. Mine was bought new in 1967 by my father and passed on to me,, great gun but with a trigger job alone would make a huge difference. Factory is a bit stiff.
    But IMO , that's all I'd do... I love how light the gun is.
    Been thinking about trying to find a 25 round magazine too. Before there gone forever

    With my old eyes I need a l need a little magnification if I want to shoot less than 1 inch groups over 50 yds. You can't hit what you can't see....hehe..

    And as for triggers, I do three different type of trigger jobs starting at $40.

    $100 isn't out of the question but it all depends on what you want or expect from your gun.

    Second that: not sure my old eyes can even focus close enough to see either end of a pair of fixed sites.

    Hey! How did I get brought up in this conversation??? :eek:

    Actually buying a 10-22 is an excellent investment. Heck, 10-22's are the barbie doll of the rimfire world, dress it up any way you want to. :D
