    I'm debating on buying a used ruger 10-22 to do some plinking. I have single shot .22 rifles but don't own any semi automatics. Any suggestions or reviews about this gun? Also post pictures of yours !

    Around 250 new on the high side (stainless). I'd look around at places to get used ones though. You ca get them cvheap and then have all kinds of aftermarket fun with them:)

    Here is a photo of mine above my Mossberg 715 tactical. Mine rocks a 22LR Nikon BDC scope. The only thing missing is a few of those 25 round ruger magazines.

    Ruger 10-22s are like chevy small blocks. There is everything in the world out there for them.

    Before you plunk down your hard earned cash on the Ruger check out the Marlin 60...! :) Cliff

    Ruger 10 22

    I can't image not having at least one 10 22 in my vault. Problem is I can't seem to be able to leave well enough alone. At the moment I have three. As for price, about 6 months ago I bought one from Wal-mart for $230. Academy Sports had then for a little less than $200 at the time but that was extra 100 miles round trip so just got the one from Wally-mart.

    Always a good choice. Grab a couple 25 round Ruger magazines too when you can find them. I bought my mag a year or two ago and unfortunately only bought one. Cuz at the time I didn't see a reason to have multiple. It was only like $22 at that store in NC. Now I wish I had bought a few more. Can't find them anywhere for that price.

    In terms of the price of the gun, just hold out till you can find a good used one in your budget. $200 ish should be reasonable. But if you can find better, snag it.

    The 10-22 would have to be stainless and in very good shape for me to pay $200 for it. It's hard to find a blued 10-22 in this area. The stainless 10-22 is under $250 NIB.

    They go on sale for $179.99 for blued synthetic at Bi-mart twice a year around these parts.

    Get the takedown 10-22. It is a bit more expensive, but makes a great survival/ bug out gun. Also get a minimum of two 25 round magazines. I have four and they are a great time saver when you are someone's range clock.

    Trigger leaves a bit to be desired and needs the Volquartsen hammer/trigger kit for a few dollars. Otherwise a decent and indestructible arm.

    The Volquartzen trigger cost me about $85. It's worth every penny.

    As others have said,you can't go wrong with a 10-22 Ruger for a semi automatic 22 Lr rifle to add to the stable.

    I also have another question. Since it is a semi auto gun do I have to have a special permit or is it even considered an "assault rifle" ? Thanks for all the replies!
