Green laminate Ruger 10/22

Here's my green laminate 10/22 I bought in 1990. I was in the market and a birch stocked gun was about 140 bucks. I found a dealer laminates, which he said were limited runs. They allegedly made 500 green and 250 brown. The green was $180 and the brown $210. For the longest time after I bought it, I rarely saw another laminate stocked gun. Of course now, they come in everything from electric blue to pink.

Back then, I mistakenly put see-thru scope mounts on the gun. Then after many years I wised up and decided to change them. I had the 3/8" dovetail rail that came with the gun and used it with some cheap rings. Now I understand the guns come with a rail that accepts either 3/8" or Weaver rings. I keep waiting to get my hands on one so I can see close up how much wider the scope rail is than the 3/8" only rail I have. I also want to see where the cross slots for the Weavers are placed on the rail, because ring placement is kind or critical with my compact scope. I hate the way the cheap rings I have clamp together and have what look like knuckles sticking out on the side. I hope when I find a Weaver base on a gun I can find one with the old style steel Weaver rings. I want see how they look on the gun and see if they are sleeker looking from the top compared to the rings I have.

Anyway, it's just your basic 10/22 in a pretty stock. It pretty much shoots like a 10/22.

I like the stock colors
Definitely it's not pink or anything
I looks like it would blend with the terrain.

The scope is an older Tasco World Class. I like it I just don't like the rubber coating that is on it. It is very thin and soft and a has started to rub off in places. It appears to be gloss underneath. One day, I may try stripping it off. You can see it coming off one of the scope caps in my pics. In the other pics, it looks scratch up, but isn't. That is lint sticking to the tacky rubber.

Aren't the scope rings mounted backwards? I thought the tightening rings should be on the ride side?

Nice furniture! I've never seen one quite like it.

That is why I mount all of mine that way. I figure putting the screws heads on the left will eliminate scrapped nuckles when charging the rifle.... I can't see that it makes any difference as far as holding the scope goes.

It doesn't make any differance other than in almost all manufacturer pictures they are mounted with the screws to the right. On my Weaver mounts it also makes it so the writing is correct when sighting the rifle.

I guess I'm just weird.
