Semi auto rifle.Dave,
just wondering if you click on this if it will help. I never had one but I don't think you can go wrong with one if that is what you are looking for. Are you talking about a pistol or rifle?
when I bought my 45 the dealer called ruger the "chevy" of guns!when my father was alive, he called the ruger, "the small block of guns", there is a huge after market, and i've seen these things dialed in where groups were minute. it's one of those guns that you really can't go wrong with....
I agree. It's kind of modular and most aftermarket parts are standardized so you can put them on without any gunsmithing at all. Mine was pretty accurate out of the box, but it's even better now after adding a Butler Creek stock/bull barrel combo (which was a very easy operation). I haven't had time to fine tune the scope yet, but have still shot some one-hole groups at 25-30 yards while adjusting it. I'm sure that this is not the most accurate barrel out there, but I can tell that just the added weight and a longer trigger pull help a lot. I usually buy the cheap 500-round family packs, but I'm sure that target ammo would help too.when my father was alive, he called the ruger, "the small block of guns"
I agree..... I read that out of the box, the Marlin is a little bit more accurate. Had to do with the "micro-groove" barrel, with 16 grooves vs 6 (If i remember correctly) for the 10-022.If you do not intend to modify it, by a Marlin Mod 60.
No mods- no extras- just put a scope on and go to town. A 10/22 has WAY more things that can be done to it, but I am not sure it beats a marlin mod 60 out of the box.
Own both, and they are fun to shoot. Best bunny buster I have ever had (10/22). Had it sighted in for long shots where you could count to four after the trigger pull to the bullet strike. Jackrabbits never knew what hit them.I know you asked about the 10/22, but you can get an SKS for less money and customize it just as much. Not only can you have fun paper punching at the range, you can also hunt game with it as long as the game is not over one hundred yards away. An SKS has the approximate power of a 30/30. Many people use an SKS as a rifle to hunt wild pigs like Javelina, and also for game such as Antelope. While the ammo isn't as cheap as .22, it's about as cheap as it gets for "real" rifle ammo.
