I bought the top one in '98. came with synthetic stock. switched it to wood about 8 years ago. has a Nikon 4x scope.
bottom one was a rural king limited edition wood stock model I bought about 6 years ago. now has a Weaver 2x7 scope.
Got two of these French walnut stocks now, only one on a rifle.
This barreled action....
.....is now in this stock with a Leupold 3-9x.
Basic synthetic carbine with Tech Sights and a SIG red dot.
Nordic chassis #1.....
The killingest rifle I own.
I'm a shaky old man, but if I can use a rest it helps reduce group size. Our indoor range goes to 50 feet max. The rifle is as it came from Ruger. The ammo is 10 rounds of S&B Club, just because it's what I had.
Burris Rimfire 4x PA scope. It seems I've posted this one before, but it's a pretty gun and shoots well for Rimfire Sporter.
Midwest Insustries chassis.
then all mechanical parts replaced included a one & a half pound trigger
plus it is a penny popper at 25 yards with the EOtech.
bought it about 15 years ago, maybe longer
My first 10/22, a birch and stainless model was long ago given to my oldest son, now 34 years old. He will get these two one day as well.
I did not know these existed. Now I do. Now I want one!
I will have to take a photo of my Plain Jane 30 year old 10-22 tomorrow. By coincidence I got it out to take it to the range today and found that the nylon recoil buffer ate the big one. I preferred a new nylon wrapped metal one and new springs for it from Midway today.
The top one looks like the perfect lil sentry popper... I know some military units have used them for different "quiet" tasks, not sure about our military but other countries seem to like the lil 10/22
this is a 10/22 brother from another mother...
Thompson/ Center performance Center target model 10/22 clone.
The only stainless scope I could find was a Simmons 3x9.
It's a good shooter
Uses 10/22 mags.
That's the latest one, put it together a couple months ago. It's a really cool little rig. I need to wring it out and see what that Volquartsen barrel can do. I do really like the little 3x prism.
Both photos are indoor shots I took tonight. Maybe I will get an outdoor photo in the next couple of days.
Love it. Wish they would stop chintzing out on materials, especially ruger. I think people would appreciate and pay a lio extra for the metal trigger components and barrel bands, etc...
I agree. I bought my grandson a 10/22 Takedown for Christmas a couple of years ago. I was surprised at the plastic pieces that used to be metal. It was a bit of a turn off.
Yeah, people hate that. I bet there would be alot less people emptying their pockets out on aftermarket parts if manufacturers put a few more dollars into the product and people felt like they were getting a quality rifle to begin with. Maybe not....
Funny that; having thrown money at aftermarket numerous times, I doubt I’d have purchased any of those firearms if the original price were what I spent. Sounds crazy and irrational, I know, as I knew before the purchase I would make the upgrades.
Imagine though a $775 basic M&P...people would laugh at S&W without noticing better sights and trigger, but sell it for $500 and it competes.
I have enjoyed tinkering with the 10/22 one piece at a time.
Here are factory stock 10/22 Collector #3 and T/CR22 along with KSA 16.5" bull barrel ready for installation.
