    I am either thinking the 10/22T or the 10/22 Target 'tactical' thing.

    Can't decide on which one. If the trigger on the 'tactical' one is good enough I'll just stick with it. But if I bought the T I would probably get a timney.

    The Picatinny rail and Bi-pod are good. I would end up with both no matter what 10/22 I got. But the T also has a longer barrel...

    What to do?

    BTW the tactical one is like 30 dollars more and comes with the rail, upgraded trigger, upgraded hogue stock, and bipod.

    I like the weight of the T-model for offhand shooting, but I'm over 6 feet and 217 lbs. Smaller folks may like the shorter model.

    Either model needs a good bedding job and other mods for top accuracy.

    I have one of the Tactical jobs. I have had it for some time. I think I bought it last August, and I have not shot it yet. The one I have has an excellent trigger. It has a very small amount of take up, and then it just breaks nice and clean at 3 and a half pounds. I like the heft, and the way it feels. I picked up a DeadNutz one piece base/rings for it from Optics Planet, and it is top quality. I put a Nikon 4x rimfire scope on it, and I really ought to go shoot it. :D

    Of the two I would go with the Tactical model. Have you considered buying a used rifle then a stock and aftermarket barrel? You could build a better mouse trap. The Ruger Target barrels have excellent rifling but semi sloppy chambers.

    I think I would prefer to buy a plain jane basic 10/22 and turn it into the rifle I wanted. The prices for these just seem a bit high for what you get. The barrels are not that exceptional on either one, neither are the stocks. In the near future I plan on doing one more 10/22 build (they are like Lay's potato chips) and it probably won't include a single Ruger part.

    Buy the one you want, the trigger will need work regardless.

    Get the cheap standard 10/22, toss a green mountian .920" barrel on it, your stock of choice, and a volquartsen hammer/springs. You'll have a tack-driver with a crisp 2lb trigger.
    I don't think barrel length is really a big deal on a .22. I was reading some tests (rimfirecentral or something) and after 16" or so the 22lr stops accelerating anyway. If you shoot iron sights you can have a longer sight radius but usually bull barrels don't have a front sight anyway and are meant for an optic.
