Question Sorry i just don't get the ruger 10/22 fascination

someone show me the light


you get a $150-200 10/22 dress it all out

(i do think they look great all decked out)

and wind up having $1000+ in the gun but you still just have a 10/22 .

i have had a few 10/22's in the past and i just don't see all the hype about them, there good little guns ,but mine only liked the factory mags,

daughter did score 182 at the Appleseed shoot a few years back with her pink 10/22.

she now has a AR22 not the plastic sw, ruger, sig $550 ones,

put her 22 next to my 223 and they look just alike right down to the foward assist (non functional) to the shell deflector and dust cover

we put together a AR 22 UPPER on a AR LOWER and we don't have $500 in it, and it is a tack driver also.
and the best part is if she wants a 223 all we have to get is a upper.

again a decked out 10/22 looks super but it is still just a 10/22

bottom AR is her 22

To each his own. I find AK, AR, SKS, and Mosin Nagants and crap like that worthless to but they sell. That's the nice thing about this country is everyone can like different things.

Don't get me wrong on 10/22 i did not say i don't like them i just don't get the hype about them, sorta like a glock i don't have one but have shot one and i didn't notice any big to-do about it. WOULD I BUY ONE == SOMEDAY I WILL

I like MN, AR, & SK's but dont like AK's.

might be because there cheep to shoot and you can GET A Mosin Nagants FOR $70-85

Suppressed they do make a good gun for knocking the coons off your deer feeder.

10/22s are accurate little plinkers with just iron sights. I guess that's part of the reason, the other could be like ARs and such, people like to "dress" them up. I have a few Glocks, but I don't get into the "end all, be all" talk. They're great shooters, but I like my 1911s better. It's just people's choices.

I have a couple 10/22's and love them. They never jam , tight groups and fun/cheap to upgrade and shoot. The Ruger SR 22 I have looks very similar to and AR and shoots freat and I have $400 in it with a 50 rd drum, the other Target I built on a 20 year old model and the way it is now was only $185 + the $98 I paid in 1982 from K-Mart on 9 Mile road.

I was gonna go with a 10-22 in a archangel stock, just looked too corny to me

Went the a Cmmg dedicated upper/ cheap $100 plum crazy complete lower= $400 M4 style Ar, uses blackdog mags, super reliable magazines, $11.99 each from .44 MAG.com!

P.s if anyone is wanting a 10-22 (not a new one with a PLASTIC trigger assembly, they have one at jacks super pawn for $199 (id rather pay more for an older one with the all aluminum trigger assembly, especially if you are gonna customize it )

I agree, I have a Marlin 60 and for a .22 unless you are a National shooting Champion, I would rather put money into a more substantial caliber.
