    I just picked one up yesterday and it is bone stock! What should I look into as far as cheaper scopes and rings. Are there any neccessary modifications that I should do right off the bat? This is more of a budget rifle

    I've had good luck with the plastic 30rd Eagle mags. Other's say bad things about them but mine has never had a single problem.

    I have heard of some people filing down some part on magazines, but I am unsure if that is the brand and what not? This Ruger should be fun! I love paying only 14 bucks for 550 rds vs almost 140 bucks for 550 of 9mm

    The Ruger 10/22 is a great little rifle. I have had lots of fun with mine. I think there are more accessory options for them than there are for any other rifle. I have had great fun using some of the high(er) capacity magazines. I bought two 25 round magazines. They are cheap (approx $20.00) each and last for 4-5000 rounds. Great for plinking! Buy a good buffer. I had a cheap Tasco scope on mine for a while. I think the rifle is more fun without the scope.

    I have a simmons 3.5 -10 x 50mm on mine with leoupold rings,the rings were bought at wallyworld i foregot how much$but not very expensive.the scope was taken off a 30.06 deer rifle so i just figured i would put it on the 10/22.It's very good for popping squirrels in the tree tops..simmons has cheap scopes that are very good and wallyworld has the BSA SCOPES don't know much about them but my friend has one on his deer rifle so they must be okay.THE SCOPE IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE RINGS THAT HOLDS IT ON THE GUN..

    It's just stock. Sadly I let my mom borrow my Nikon D50 for her photo class or else I would take a pic. It is a wood stock with iron sights and black barrel and all. It is the base model. I am hoping to modify it soon:celebrate

    Bone stock, I think they are horrible rifles, especially the newer ones. They are very picky about ammo, and they have terrible triggers. I have a lot more respect for .22 rifles made by the likes of Remington, Winchester, Marlin, and others.

    But if you want a nice custom .22, a Ruger is a great starting point with all the crap available for them.

    The amount of money you can spend on customizing a 10/22:what:.

    I have one that is customized if you what to try it out.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I've had an Over/Under Tasco 4x32 on my Ruger for 10 years now.

    I've put about 6,000 rounds thru it easy, never fails.

    You are right about the trigger, but the trigger creep can be fixed by anybody that is mechanically inclined. Mine has been extremely reliable, only twojams in over 15,000 rounds. Keep 'em clean and they are extraordinarily reliable.

    I have to say that I also have other entry level .22LRs, namely the Marlin '60, Remington 597 and the Henry Big Boy. By far my favorite because of reliability, and shoot-ability is the 10/22. The worst IMHO is the 597 (Yes I have a high cap mag for it as well as the 10/22)

    IMHO 250/1000 you picked the right entry level .22LR. I hope it gives you many hours of fun and enjoyment.

    Mine's 10 years are more older, and the trigger is fantastic. Breathe to hard and it falls. It's always been like that.

    Maybe the new one's have a mushy trigger for safety. :?

    The stock sights flat out SUCK! I shot a few hundered rounds yesterday and I'm looking into a different pair of sights or a scope. I was also looking into stocks that aren't too expensive. I am looking at the Tapco with the adjustable stock right now. It seems like it would be a good fit. I do think I want a bipod for it, but I am unsure of what one to get. As for scopes, I have no idea what to get. I want to do 50yd shooting mainly I think.

    I am going for this look minus the light and front grip.

    I really like my 10/22. It has gone through a few style changes over the years, everything from precision target to tactical. Some of the fun accessories I have used are below.
