    I'm looking to buy a 10/22 but am overwhelmed at the # of models out there. I like many of them.

    Which one do you like and why?

    What are my purposes with the rifle? General/various/all.

    Alright personal opinion i would go with the Ruger i have one and love it. It was passed down to me from my father and he had it for many years. as long as you take care of this weapon it will take care of you.

    The ruger 10/22 is very accurate easy to sight in and there are numerous upgrades that can be added to make it your own.

    Purposes: well first off it is a great gun to take to the range and just burn through some ammo plinking all day long

    second it makes a great squirrel gun. it is light weight and easy to transport also being a semi auto it allows for quick follow up shots on multiple squirrels if afforded the opportunity. and it also has stand 10 round mags and can be upgraded with 30 round banana clips. I believe there are larger clips out there for it but i have not looked in so long i couldnt tell you.

    I hope this helps you in making your decision and have fun at the range no matter what you buy.

    I got a Ruger 10-22 T when they first came out. I put a Burris 6X AO target scope on it. A few years later it was put into a glass bedded Varmint thumb hole stock and the trigger adjusted to three pounds. I have four magazines for it. When there were a lot of prairie dogs in the area I live I would load it with Winchester 22 LR HP PP ammo and go out a shoot a bunch of p dogs with it.

    Start basic with a 10/22. Go shoot it, then decide what you like/dont like. Then start replacing / fixing the stuff you dont like. Pretty soon you will have spent 2x-3x the original cost of the gun, but you will have great fun doing it. Ask me how I know.....

    Charger Pistol

    Spend the extra $50 up front and get the Charger pistol. That way you can LEGALLY convert it to and from a rifle EASILY. People are getting rid of their OEM stock & barrels all the time because they purchase a new Ruger 10/22 just to upgrade and only need the receiver & bolt. You can usually get a newly removed set of stock/barrel for around $75.

    If you want to leave it stock, i would go with the takedown. They are light, reliable, seem to be more accurate than a standard model, and they take down.

    If you want to swap everything else out later (match bbl, etc) then get something else, but if you want to leave it stock, the takedown is really cool. The truth is, it is hard to pick a bad 10-22.

    I own a 10-22 Deluxe Sporter.The only changes I've made was to jewell the bolt and mount a scope. No,it's not a tricked out space rifle.It,at least to my aging,more traditional eyes,looks as good as any other .22 rifles except maybe a Cooper or a Kimber at many times less the price.

    I have had a plain standard 10/22 for many years now. A couple weeks ago I rebuilt it to a target model with threaded barrel for suppressor use. I like it much better now than I ever have.

    I like the Sporter. It has a much nicer stock that has a nice rubber butt pad instead of the horrible curved plastic one the basic carbines come with. Plus it has sling studs installed from the factory. It looks a lot better all the way around IMO.

    I agree the Sporter is the sharpest looking model. I think I'm going more towards the cheapest model though as I plan on replacing the stock.

    If you think down the road your going to want to add a Tapco style stock. Then just go ahead and get the Tactical model that comes with the tapco stock already installed from the factory. Those stocks are about $100 anyways.

    It comes ready to add platform accessories. Also it comes with the BX-25 magazine instead of the 10 rounder.

    I am somewhat of a collector of 10/22's. The takedown model is pretty much the same as a regular old 10/22 with a butler creek takedown kit.

    I have one anyway but have only shot it a few times, the one I grab most often is my SBR one and a suppressor.

    Standard blued model with Tech Sights and a leather GI style sling. Perfect .22.

    None stand out for me. Buy the cheapest beater you can find . It will shoot and after a good cleaning probably atleast as well as a new skinny barrel model . If you want a very accurate one then build it your self .

    I have the Deluxe model with the walnut stock which I bought new in 1989. It carries a 4x scope and is essentially stock.

    I like the stainless models these days.

    My favorite looking one as well. That stock is pretty.

    They still haven't built it!
    I never liked the plastic butt plate, short barrel and barrel band. The deluxe sporter I have (and like) has a short barrel. The version sold at Wal-Mart had all the features I like, but would be nice with a checkered walnut stock. Then the only aftermarket addition would be a better trigger.

    I also love the look of the International Model 10/22. I still do just fine with my standard 10/22 and a Butler Creek folding stock.
