I just bought my 10/22 last week and have really enjoyed it. I started with the standard wood stock and blued barrel. I decided to go with the Hogue stock and a Butler Creek heavy barrel. I also added a Bushnell scope on top of her. Here she is now:


I also bought a tactical rail :)D) just for fun. I am still not sure if it will actually stay on there because I don't know if it will allow my scope to hold zero. Here she is with the rail:

Dang! You didn't have all that on it yesterday. When you get the triggar group in, I wanna blow someting up with it. A bipod and a cool scope and it will look ready for war! Sweet!
Say, there's another 10/22 live thread floating around. Have you many ftf with decent ammo?
My son had one and it rocked. Hardly ever a ftf. He used CCI's Mini-Mags, and Stingers for ammo.

I've only put about 100 rounds through it, but I didn't have any problems. I forgot to tell ya about the rail! It just came in on Friday so I guess it slipped my mind. I like how it looks, but it does add a lot of weight to an already heavy front end. It is definitely a fun rifle with a nice price tag!

Use ALL of the receiver holes and tighten them down first, it might be just fine. I personally don't like the looks of a tac rail on a sporter type stock but if you're going for a SOCOM clone it's a start.

The thing about this rail is it is made for the wooden stock that came on the rifle, not the overmolded Hogue stock that I bought. It fits fine over the top, but the bottom piece will not squeeze over the stock. I have read about people shaving down the bottom to make it fit, but I don't want to scuff up the stock and be forced to have that rail on it forever. Anyone else think it looks better without the rail?

Wow that looks just like the one that I picked up at the gun show this weekend.

Ruger 10/22 with a .92 Butler Creek Barrel and Houge stock. The Optic is a cheap Tasco though.

That is the exact barrel and stock I bought. The only difference is that I put a cheap Bushnell on top! :D How does yours shoot?

I think it looks fine. Float the barrel and rock on.

Not to hijack the thread, but I was just reading some reviews on 10/22 products and noticed that a lot of guys were talking about groupings at 50 yards. 2 of my .22's are sighted in at 100 yds, and the others are sighted in at 75. Am I overstepping where I should be, or are they not trying hard enough?

22s are wind sensitive. Plus if you only have a 50yd range to shoot at......
100yds I feel is the effective max range for a 22 and I don't hesitate to make a shot at that range. I sight mine in at 100 they are usually pretty close at 25yds too and a bit high at 50.
