    Nice gun, Shady

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

    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.

    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.

    I'm going to shoot it over New Years weekend. I'm really looking forward to putting some rounds through the rifle.

    All right, shot the my son's Ruger 10/22 that I upgraded for him for Christmas.

    This is a 10 shot group at 100 yards. It should get better after the new 20 inch fluted barrel gets broke in.

    I have the 20 inch Green Mtn fluted barrel on my hot rod 10-22. My buddy and I have contests with 1 inch swingers at a 100 yards. first one to clean a 10 shot run wins, then 15 shot runs. etc...
    It is great training. Amazing how accurate the platform can be.

    Great choice, Green Mtn barrels are an excellent value and are very underrated in my experience.

    I would have never guessed one of those would shoot groups like that at 100. :eek1 50, yes, but 100 is a whole different game.

    Did you bed that barrel or do any of the fancy mounting to the receiver things? I'm gonna have to build one of my 10-22's like that.

    I have seldom seen any kind of .22 that will shoot groups like that at 100. I have only done that with a Remy 40x. But I agree about the Green Mt. barrels, I have three of them for my 10/22s and they really love SK Standard Plus.
