Thanks for the recommendations. The size of the scope is not a huge issue. I bought the takedown model so that I could fit it in a backpack when riding a dirt bike. My house backs up to BLM land and there is a makeshift range about two miles away. I found a cheapo 3-9x40. I'm not pleased with the rings that were included, but we'll see. I just need a case that is more like a sock, which shouldn't be hard to find.

Oh, and in this age of soaring gun prices. Sportsman's Warehouse had a bunch of 10/22 takedowns for $309, which is a lot less than I paid last week when I could find only one locally.

You will enjoy the TD. Loving mine. Fun for my son and I to shoot. I put a small BSA on mine and it works very well. Also fits in my Oakley packpack for the moto ride in.





Have since put the straight tube on the Tapco stock for the scope. The angled was good for the iron sights, but he straight is better for the scope.

Try different ammos in your 10/22, but I have found that CCI Blazer shoots much better in my 10/22 than any other inexpensive ammo. And if you want to really test out its accuracy, use some SK Standard Plus ($5 per box).

My 10/22 will happily eat anything that I feed it, but CCI ammo seems less dirty and runs well in fussier guns too.

You might want to look into one of the small red dot sights to mount on that 1022 if you don't need magnification. A lot of them are under $100 and they work very well. I have two of the micro dot models from Primary Arms and I like them a lot.

Rimfire Central has a lot of talk on the Takedown models. Accuracy seems to not be an issue. The most common problem seems to be a lack of heat treating on the chamber end of some of the barrels. Scroll down through this thread as there is some good info on those rifles.

Took the Hi Standards out the other day. The triggers on those things are a miracle. Using a rest, here is a 20-shot group at 20 yards with the Victor. First shot was high on cold barrel, the rest stayed within 1.2" and my eyes aren't the greatest anymore. Plain ol' cheap American Eagle ammo. What a fabulous pistol.

Nice gun, Shady

Hi Standards are fantastic pistols! Wish I still had my old Victor - probably couldn't afford one now...

ShadyRascal:

I'm kinda confused. A few posts back you called yours a model 103. I have a "SUPERMATIC Tournament" that says "Model 103" on the RH side of the slide....and my magazine release is at the base of the grip...not the gold button you have. From the best I can find, it is a '66-67 vintage (I bought it used in 1968).

Been lurking here for a long time lusting over the Ruger 10-22 takedown and assorted 22 handguns. My 103 has a 5.5" bull barrel, and weighs a lot. Kinda fantisized over a shorter lighter barrel to lighten it up to make this a better concealed carry weapon, but finding anything for this pistol is difficult. target and tournament barrels can be found...but nothing light & compact.

Hi Ed, you must have a different post confused with mine. I have this Victor and a model A. SR

My 1st pistol- Ruger MkII, later had Clark do some custom work, ported barrel, trigger and Bomar Sights added. Still my favorite gun.

Just finished putting this ruger together. Will be taking it to the range today. Note not my gun. I gave the stock 10/22 to Justin, my oldest son about 12 years ago. For Christmas, I bought him the stock, barrel, and scope.

Maybe post some groups later today.
