    The 10/22 is an American Classic. They have been around for over 50 years and still very popular. I love mine and could shoot it every day. Great choice for a first rifle. Treat it right and it will out live you.

    I bought a brand new one over the weekend. I had to pull a zip tie outta the barrel with pliers but the first 3 shots were dime size at 50 yards with iron sights so great rifle

    You can remove about every part on a 10/22. I'm not an expert by any means but I know people replace lots of parts and end up with a tack driving rifle that will shoot with some of the best bolt action rifles around. It won't be cheap to do that but it can be done. A trigger and a barrel upgrade will go a long wa toward making your rifle a great shooter. But even as a stock rifle it will shoot well. It's hard to go wrong with a 10/22. My personal choice for an all-around beater would be different but that's still an excellent choice.

    I remember taking a Dremel tool to mine. It came out fine but obviously, the front sight was unusable after.

    You just might need those sights one day. Rifle looks nice , have a good time with it. Maybe a few tree rats or wabbits for dinner??

    There are tons of aftermarket parts for a 10-22. It's the best reason to have a few of them :)

    I wouldn't bother removing the sight. Maybe get another bbl if you just don't like it but I'm more the type that will use mounts/rings that allow me to look under the glass and use them from time to time. They do come in handy and not being a slave to the glass is a plus sometimes.:)

    I use a tool called a sight pusher.

    Seriously? It is sort of U shaped. On one end it has 2 heavy prongs spaced a little more than a half inch apart. These will sit against your sight ramp. You have 1 other single prong that is attached to a screw handle that goes against the dovetail sight from the opposite side. You turn the handle to tighten and it slowly pushes the sight out of the dovetail as as you go. I use it to install or remove dovetail sights. I bought it at Midway. It is made by Williams and think it is called a Williams Sight Pusher. I think they are about $50. It works great for me. I bought it after my punch slipped and I knocked the bead off of a model 94.

    Of course it also works great for adjusting windage instead of beating on it with a hammer and punch, which I was trying to do in the first place.
