This guy until yesterday. Picked up a Ruger Collectors 50th Anniversary Edition 10-22. I'll take it out today and see how it shoots.

Ive got a really nice 10/22 sporter or maybe sporter delux. Its the model with no barrel band and a nicer wood stock. Havent shot it in 10 years probably. Its resting up for the workout my boy will put it through some day smile

Rugers were always my favorite 22, good lookin gun

Good, it shoots good. It can shoot great but it will need a loving touch or two to get to great. First touch the trigger. A PC three piece trigger kit with adjustable sear or a Kidd trigger if you're high rolling.

Enjoy your new gun. Go find the ammo it likes. Have you got a selection to try?

Very cool 10/22 up

Mine is 30 years old (looks like it) and still going strong. And article in Outdoor Life ten years ago claimed that if you totaled every manufacturers total sales of semi-auto .22 lr they would not equal the number of 10/22's sold.

if you were initiated properly your first rifle should be a .22

I've grown to appreciate the rimfire and have been building my collection

Winchester 94-22
Winchester 94-22 75th Boy Scout Edition
3 Browning 22 (bottom eject)
Remington 541-T
4 Remington 597 AAC
Ruger 10/22
Sako Quad

several .22 pistols, Colt/Beretta/Kimber/NAA/Ruger one of the coolest is Beretta 87

think i'll add Volquartson, Anschultz soon

Slick looking gun. I've got an old Remington 572 Fieldmaster pump .22 that was passed down to me by my late grandfather. I keep wanting a 10/22 until I get the old pump action out and see how accurate and flawlessly it shoots.

I have run across a similar situation with my father's old Marlin model 60.

The new Ruger in the OP sure looks nice though.

Nice! Won't be long until I get a Ruger 22. I have a Savage and really enjoy it.

Nice rifle. I'm shooting a Henry .22 and an old Remington Speed Master. It seems ever Ruger .22 i've ever had has become a present to a youngster that showed an interest.

That is a nice looking rifle, and I'll second that recommendation to put a Kidd trigger in it. A Kidd trigger makes a great rifle even better.

The answer to your question is an ignorant man! Haha.

I got into guns late and thought what was the point of a 22. I've totally come around and think everyone should have one. And special love to the 10/22. I've had one and after we married my wife needed her own according to her.

FYI, I've sent my trigger to a place called Brimstone gun something, smithing or works. They do a good trigger job which made a world of a difference. I'm sure u can buy parts and diy, but this was easy and affordable for me.
