Price USED Ruger 10/22's for me?


June 27, 2009, 11:35 AM
I am looking at used 10/22's in several places and the cheap one's are $150 and they go up to $200. Is that about right for a project action? :confused:

None of these are in great shape and none are terrible either.

I am planning to replace almost everything so what prices would you all pay??

Thank you

If you really plan to replace almost everything, there are a few vendors that sell really nice machined receivers with integral scope mounts.

Volquartsen, Magnum Research are two. I think there are a couple more.

I wouldn't buy a $200 gun for the Ruger receiver.:)

I second the idea of an aftermarket receiver. If everything is going to be replaced with top-shelf parts, you may as well start with one.

I am looking to start with a $100 action and put mid-priced parts on it. But if that is the going price for used Ruger's I guess I check out the other guy's.

The goal is to build a VERY light weight gun, as short a legally possible without doing an SBR.

How much are the the other guy's ballpark?

Hell, I just looked at this, and I don't think I'd bother building one (unless I just felt like it).

These are VERY nice rifles. Should be available for under MSRP.

:what:Oh my! I need to go and place and order now fella's. That is exactly ('cept better) what I was thinking of.
Hmmm well - that um - aw you got me all worked up!

I haven't shot one, but I have handled them. They are every bit as nice as they look in the pictures. A store/range where I used to go stocked them. They feel pretty nice when you work the bolt, too -- nothing like a standard 10/22.

I'd have more in the gun if I built it myself, with those parts.

yep, and they will keep going up. Here's why; the new ones are CRAP-DIDDY- CRAPPITY CRAP!!!! they have plastic front site, plastic bbl bands, plastic trigger housing plastic parts in the trigger mech. And the finish? all of everything is just painted, and drip dried. nothing finished, nothing polished, nothing anodized.
So If you can find one for 150, consider youself doing good.

To me, on rugers now, unless you just have something in mind that is totally different, or some wild colors or something, it would just be best to get either a magresearch or Volquartzen rifle, which will have all the goodies, they will both have excellent bbls, match chambers, be priced CHEAPER THAN WHAT YOU CAN PUT TOGETHER, and just be done with it.

Ditto rangerruck, and one more thing...

If you find a used 10/22 that's a really good one in stock form, it'd be a shame to tear it all apart. They really don't make 'em any more, not like that anyway.

Thanks guy's. I will probably order one in the next month. I have a 10/22 Target model and 10/22 Magnum (with extra's) and was looking for a super lite one for walking around the woods.

Agree with Ruck.

I won a new 10/22 at a raffle recently and is as described. The receiver literally appears to be painted with some thick goop on the receiver, lots of plastic where there should be steel, and the barrel isn't blue'd, its like some sort of parkerized finish.

It is but a pale shadow of the 10/22 my dad bought me 20 something years ago...

My friend wanted to buy a new 10/22 so we went to the local sporting good store and handled one. After looking at it we both agreed it didn't feel right compared to my 10/22 that my dad bought me about 10 years ago. So, my friend decided to pass because the price seemed too high for a rifle that had many corners cut in its production.
