This one said Ruger 10/22 post. It should be renamed "The Good, the Bad and Wally World".

I have a Ruger 10/22 that I bought in 1967 ( I think). Great little shooter. I know that they are not the same today. My Grandson and Granddaughter will learn to shoot with it this Summer.

As far as where you work and what you do it is up to you. Success is hard. That is why there are no books written on failure. Failure is easy.

The 10/22 was intended to be a low cost recreational plinking rifle. It does that very well. People are nuts spending three times the cost of a true target rifle, trying to make a 10/22 into one.

I had the carbine in my earlier shooting days, never did anything to it except a sling. Not even a scope.

My current 10/22 is a Deluxe Sporter I got in 2009. It has a DIY web sling, a Simmons scope, and a DIY bolt buffer because I don't like the clinking noise. I made some from 3 X 1/4" nylon bolts.

There are after market bolt buffers that are on the market and they take away the "clinking noise" and do seem to smooth out the action.
Bearcatter you just cost me some money. Thanks LOL

Well, I'm really glad somebody picked up this older thread. I own several Ruger .22 pistols and revolvers but I had never purchased one of their rifles. I did pick up a cz 512 semiautomatic and loved it. And then I thought, how can I NOT buy a 10/22? It has to be one of the most popular rifles sold in the US and you can get it in so many different configurations. I was most attracted to the deluxe sporter for its traditional lines and walnut stock. I also like Ruger's rotary (?) clip design. Anyway, I made this purchase very recently and am getting to know the rifle. I don't like the sights so I'll be mounting a 2-7X Hawke scope on it. I bought the deluxe sporter from a not-so-local small gun store for $300 out the door. Don't know if that was a good deal but I felt happy about it. When I get it set up and shoot some targets off a bean bag, I'll try to post some photos (have never done that before on this forum so wish me luck). I really like this forum and read it (almost) every night.

Money? My nylon bolts were about 30 cents apiece. The reason for such a long bolt is to use the unthreaded portion for the buffer. Takes about five minutes with a hacksaw and file to make each one. I made six, but the first one has about 2,000 rounds on it and still looks like new.

Yea....It's getting harder to get up. Sometimes I have to crawl to the coffee table.

I like the Sporter models and the Walnut sure is pretty. Congrats on picking up a great looking first 10/22. Be sure to post a range report.

I'm lost! 303 did you post a remark about how many Henry's you had stashed away?
I looked for that post but could not find it.
From what I gathered. you own more Henry's than any other member. Right?
Would you please fess up again. I'm astounded if I remember correctly.
