    Re: Ruger 10/22 Stainless

    I picked up a base model with an ugly camo stock for $199 at Four Seasons. I'm psyched to get started on this thing.

    Took 45 minutes to buy a gun with no lines. I'm a CPA and am familiar with red tape, but holy moley!

    A few months back, I bought a MP-22 for my son at four seasons. That purchase granted me the right to also buy.....a bulk pack of 22 LR ammo for it!

    Maybe. It's hard to tell. The OEM barrel isn't fluted but looks that way in pictures

    That barrel isn't fluted either. Its the hammer forging. They leave the tool marks on the outside of the barrel. The only fluted that Ruger ever installed from the factory was a stainless Butler Creek Heavy barrel.

    Barrel is not fluted. It's the way the metal was grinded/finished.

    I had way more fun shooting the 15-22.. like this one.

    15-22's are pretty sweet too, but not everyone wants an AR clone. A 10/22 is the first gun for a lot of kids too. Most of what you hate about it is a quick and cheap fix. Take an Appleseed course with it and put a fuck ton amount of rounds downrange and the mag release becomes intuitive. Learn how to use a sling and you can drill things standing from 100 yds while guys with $2000 AR's and $500 optics struggle to hit the same target from a bench rest. Not bad for a few hundred bucks.

    Edit: Someone needs to scoop that 15-22 too. Good deal.

    Kids I get. Adults I don't.

    Or are they really that much more accurate out of the box than a 15-22?

    I kinda think you're missing the whole point of a 10-22...an accurate, reliable and CHEAP plinker. It's half the cost of a 15-22. The whole point of a plinker is cheap shooting, afterall.

    Re: Ruger 10/22 Stainless

    Let's preface all of this with the fact that I am NOT an avid shooter. I sent exactly 0 rounds down range so far in 2014. Zero.

    But I still don't get it. I do not like the 10/22 enough to spend actual money on it. So many other firearms I'd much rather own.

    If you happen to have an AR (and really, if you don't, you should), you can get a conversion kit to run 22lr for like $200.

    Re: Ruger 10/22 Stainless

    I guess my question is: Is a $500 10/22 build significantly more accurate than a $500 15-22?
    'Cause in my opinion, the 15-22 is way more fun.

    ^^^all of this...the 15-22 is nice if you want to blow extra money to do the same thing as a 10/22 but look cooler or if you want to train with an AR but spend less on rounds...other than that i don't see a point...and the ruger sr-22 rifle is basically a fancy 10/22

    this i get though...the target version of the 10/22 vs the 15-22 is about the same price...i guess it's whatever flavor you like better cause they are approximately the same price...personally i would go with one of the cheaper 10/22s to save some cash but that's just me cause i don't know that any of them shoot better than the rest...the other question would be which is more reliable between the 10/22

    the gun is generally as accurate as the guy behind it...

    Could I build a $500 10/22 and get it to out shoot a stock 15/22? Yes.

    Could you? I don't know.

    This ^^

    Remember the 5.0 Mustang? I bought mine for $10,700 in 1988 and at the time it could outrun the pricier competition right off the showroom floor. By 1991 there was massive aftermarket support to make it even faster. Parts were cheap and readily available and the car was super easy to work on and responded very well to even minor modifications. And when you were done you could beat a Grand National down the dragstrip for less money. The 10/22 hits the same nerve.

    I do love my 15-22, but for it's own reasons. It is what it is and there is very limited aftermarket support besides some magazines and AR crossover parts. Fun to shoot but in a different way.
