$199 Wal Mart gun. None of that stuff helps it shoot better. Its the lipstick on a pig conundrum.

I built a 10/22 with a laminated thumb hole stock, extended mag release, trigger work, green mountain barrel, and a Leupold 3x9, that I sold for 700-900 (Its been so long ago I dont remember.

looks cool. Someone will probably give 500-700 for it. No one that knows its still JUST a ruger 10/22. But there is someone out there that would be tickled pink/purple with it.

Is there something wrong with 10/22's I'm not aware of? I've probably shot several hundred thousand rounds out of them since I was a kid and haven't had any problems that weren't aftermarket magazine related.

I love my 10/22...it's got the "boat paddle" stock and blued barrel. it's had countless rounds shot through it without any issues. If my house were burning to the ground, I'd already saved the wife/kids and dog, and only had time to save 1 other possession, it would be that rifle.

one of these days I will have a bull barrel put on it (or maybe slightly smaller than a bull barrel, but bigger than stock) and I want to put some kind of open night sights on it...

something like this, except maybe the split rear sight instead of a ghost ring sighy

Just never have been a fan of them, we couldn't get them shooting quarter size groups at 50 yards while my cheap little Marlin Model 60 was touching holes. But the real cats Meow is the CZ .22 its a Bolt gun but at 50 yards we have shot hundreds of one hole groups with it.

I can relate. We used to shoot a lot of .22 silhouette leagues and I could never get my 10/22 shooting "great". I have a Model 60 and a Savage Mark II with some work done to it and both of them out shoot that 10/22. I don't think they are bad guns by no means, just have to put money into them to get them to shoot well.

I have a .204 made my CZ and its a freaking tack driver. I love that gun and the double set trigger.

This gun shot 1.5" groups at 100 yards off a bench with Winchester wildcats. CCI stingers would tighten the group up to about 1", but I was to cheep to buy the ammo regularly.

Maybe tomorrow I will get my savage out and see what it groups at 100 yds. I havent shot it much since I bought my .17.

Fair warning, I sold that gun years ago, so I am just trying to remember off the top of my head what it did. I figured it grouped tight enough to kill prairie dogs reliably out to 100 yards, so I didnt concern myself much about trying to keyhole a .22. The bullet is the weak link after about 50 yards. I built a similar gun on the .17hmr round when they first came out, and it would keyhole at 50 and shoot moa at 100 provided the wind wasn't blowing and a blade of grass didnt get in the way.

IT IS WORTH WHATEVER SOMEONE IS WILLING TO PAY FOR IT. That being said I have owned 3 10/22's in my life and loved every one of them from bone stock to decked out an incredibly reliable and accurate (albeit with proper ammo) little gun.

I've always wanted to buy one bone stock and customize it to become a tack driver. Some years back, a buddy of mine bought one with a carbon bull barrel and that thing was sweet. We were stacking quality ammo at 100 yards. Another buddy at my old department used to bring his with a silenced barrel out on patrol and when things would get slow, we'd go to the river barge landing and shoot half the night. I've always wanted a dedicated silenced barrel on one too.

I had a buddy who built one like that back in school it was a tack driver. He got his money out of it shooting it not selling it. I do not exaggerate, he would bust digger squirrels at 200 yards all day. it was so much fun to shoot.
