I have had one of those and now have the new Savage tactical model. I also have 2 Ruger 10/22s and the Rugers are the most accurate of all my .22s if I use SK Standard Plus Ammo. All you need to do to have an accurate, fun .22 is to get a 10/22 of any ilk and put a $120 Green Mt. heavy barrel on it. You might have to rout out the stock if it is one of the basic ones. But no fancy bedding or other mods are required. Just make sure the barrel mount bolts are tight and the action screw is tight. Get a $79 Tru-Glo 36X scope and cheap mounts and you can easily make .25" 10 shot groups at 50 yards with it. My wife outshot the local .22 benchrest group with hers and they were using Anschutz, Mod 52, Mod 40s and other premier rifles.

Based on what occurred with the Marlin takeover, my impression is that quality at Remington has slipped badly.

I don't have a Savage 22 (yet). From what I've seen and read, I agree strongly. I have a Savage 30 06 Axis, and it is the most accurate rifle I've ever owned.

Thanks very much. I have another one just like it that is new in the box, unfired, all the papers, and hand selected for its wood that I will probably sell. Just haven't gotten around to it yet.

You didn't buy those movie bullets that shoot around corners did you?

Hope it works out. I have a Rem 572 pump that is very accurate. Love it.

I had a Ruger 10/22 that was the same way. It turned out the barrel was a little twisted in relation to the receiver. Only took a minute with a screwdriver to fix.

.22

Stopped by the local gun shop today to see if he had anything I couldn't live without, turns out he did. Picked up a nice mod 36 chief and then a Henry lever action 22 caught my eye and while doing the paperwork decided I'd get the Ruger 10/22 compact. Some range fun tomorrow. May have lost the mod 36 wife walked by a minute ago and eyeballed it, then she picked it up. Got a hmmmm I may need this comment from her. Then a "can we shoot this tomorrow?"

Sounds like you chose wisely in many areas.

I have a Henry in .22WMR with an octagon barrel that is my favorite rimfire. I also have a .22LR that I regret not getting without the octagon barrel.

One thing I just might have to get is a 17HMR. That's the only ammo (besides shotgun) on the shelves right now.

Ruger 10/22 take down model? Any reason not to pick one up vs. the regular 10/22? Thanks

The sole reason I can see is price. They have drifted the servicable 10-22 into the medium fine (CZ etc) price category.

But that is the only reason I can see. I haven't checked "street pricing" recently. Only when they were brand new.

I'm picking mine up tomorrow morning

It costs a bit more, but I like the packability of it. It's like the grown-up version of the AR-7 I had as a kid.

I'm partial to this:







The next upgrade are Hornet trigger, Kidd checkered block, and firing pin!
My Hogue 10/22 already has the best Hornet trigger, but it could use the checkered block, firing pin, and pull handle... maybe magazine release...

Money pit :)

So, being a take down version, it wouldn't be any less accurate than a non take down version?
