    I always hear about the 10/22. ALWAYS. My only 22LR rifle is an old marlin my pops gave me. I love using it for squirrel, but frankly, i'd like to upgrade to something a little more tactical. What r everyone's thoughts on the 10/22 tactical? Or are other 10/22 models as easily customized as this one?

    the ruger 10/22 is one of the most customizable rifles made. however, buying and installing all the custom do dats can get pricey quick. personally i dont care much for the look of a factory 10/22. when i come across a used one im going to get it but thats only for the reciever. i want a new stock, barrel, and trigger group. but thats just me. they are popular for a reason. they are easy to take apart and do the modifications..if its what you want get it.

    They are also extremely reliable and tack drivers.

    If you want the ruger to shoot better than your marlin? You may want to buy a ruger used rifle and build it your self over time so it does not hurt your wallet so much. Nothing about a 10/22 that you can't do at home. You can go to EABCO for a e b shaw barrel for 99 bucks some are cheaper out there. A Hogue overmolded stock stock runs 65 or less, Clark customs trigger kit for a way better trigger. Maybe a scope from walmart like the centerpoint 4-16 for 70 bucks. Buy a 10 buck weaver base. Save a nice amount of money,have rifle that will shot better and you built it.

    With the right setup, it's can be a tack driver at 100 yards. Mine is stock and came with a scope. I'm shooting a 1 inch pattern at 50 yards. Don't see a need to go longer. Puts meat on the table.

    So general consensus seems to be buy a used, and make it what i want it to be. Sounds good. I loved my AR build and loved customizing my 1911 so i don't see why this would be any different.

    customizing a 10/22 can easily turn into an addiction. - forewarned

    Ahh, the 10/22 your standard meat and potatos gun. I have seldom missed a potato with it, and they don't run very far.

    so now that I'm shopping around, I'm curious: is there a particular model of the 10/22 that is more easily customisable? I've noticed that some of them have the little iron sights on them, some have a rail system, etc. is there a particular model that I should be looking out for if I want to gut it, or would just the standard little carbine work fine?

    Standard carbine works fine. Mine is from 1985.

    my suggestion on the 10/22 vs. the M60 is this. if you want one to modify and custom build into what you want in a 22 rifle, then get the 10/22. if you want one to buy new, pull it out the box and at most just want to maount a scope and go shooting or hunting, buy the M60.

    I love my 10/22! there are some great options in here already, but I really prefer my setup. Ill include a link to my video. It is a pretty good video that shows how to completly take apart every piece and upgrade the parts I think need a little help. You should definaltly get a 10/22 and you will love it!

    The 10/22 is definitely a great gun. The iron sights that come with the carbine or compact rifles are actually very accurate. I can shoot up a coke can at fifty all of the way to around seventy yards no problem with them. It's a good rifle to just carry into the woods and is my go to gun if I just want to shoot stuff in general. With or without a scope, you will be able to put meat on the table pretty consistently. I can't compare it to the marlin 60 because I have only ever shot 10/22s and have never felt the need to shoot with anything different. That tells me they are quality guns! It is your choice if you want to buy new or used and I think either way is fine. If you want to put all of those fancy aftermarket parts on it buy used and save money, if not, I would buy new.

    I have a M60 and a 10/22. I bought the 10/22 with thoughts of 'tricking it out' but I like the way the Marlin shoots much better, so Im gonna sell the 10/22. The Marlin is from '82 so it has that 18 round tube mag, which is a plus. Tricks are for kids :)
