The Ruger 10/22 is a terrific little rifle for plinking and for varmit hunting. I had my tricked out in full tactical gear with a folding tactical stock, 50 round tear-drop clip, flash hider and sling. It is a pretty mean looking little set-up for not much money. Ruger .22's are known for accuracy right out of the box and this gun is no exception. A lot of fun for a beginner or even a veteran shooter like me.
What more can I say about this rifle that the other reviews havent said... I agree with the other reviews, the magazines seem to be an issue. After a lot of use they seem to get dirty and gunked up with carbon. There are tutorials on the web on how to clean the magazines. This is also depending upon how dirty the ammo you use is. Otherwise, the Ruger 10/22 is an accurate and reliable rifle. I have two of them and they digest and fire everything that is fed to them.
Like many others, the Ruger 10/22 was the first rifle I owned. I learned to shoot on this baby and have nothing but fond feelings for it. Ruger has been putting this model out for years and for good reason. It's simple, reliable and very hard to find anything wrong with it. Centerfire ammo can be a bit of a crap shoot but with the right ammo you'll have very few misfires. There are tons of aftermarket mods and add-ons for this rifle too if that's your thing. There are so many good things about the 10/22 you simply can't go wrong purchasing one.
This is the gun I use for squirrel and rodent hunting. It shoots really straight and the only failure to feed/eject was from poor quality ammo. I love that I can use clips instead of slide or top loading the ammo like most other .22's make you do. Feels good when shooting it and isn't too heavy to toss on your back during a hike. This will be my son's first gun for sure. I trust it that much.
Ruger keeps making these 10/22's because they put out a fine product that needs very little. I owned one for a few years and put thousands of rounds through it. Easy to operate and easy to clean. It's very accurate out-of-the-box and digested all the different ammunition I put through it. One issue I had was the 10-round magazine that comes stock. Rounds would jam when trying to feed - getting stuck before entering the gun. I don't think this was an issue with the gun, but with the magazine itself. My advice: If you want a GREAT out-of-the-box .22 Long Rifle, buy this one and also buy plenty of spare mags.
My Dad bought this rifle for me more than 30 years ago. I passed it to my brother while I was deployed and now I have it back in my gun case. Years ago while I was squirrel hunting I took a squirrel at 75-100 yards. Very accurate, reliable and solid rifle that will stay in my family years after I am gone. A great choice for fun plinking, family weapons education.
the venerable 10/22 is an excellent weapon. the 10 round standard magazine is excellent, i have put at least over a 1000 rounds through them and never had a problem. i have fed over 5000 rounds through my 10/22 and have had very few misfires (likely the ammo's fault). i have never had a failure to feed or eject. the gun is not the most accurate weapon out there, but will feed even cheap bulk ammo into a single whole at 25 yards. and with practice even at a 100 yards you can be fairly accurate. if you want a cheap, ultra reliable plinker, this is the gun for you.
I bought my first Ruger 10/22 about 30 years ago. I have it still and it is one of my favorite rifles to shoot. It has become the most upgradable firearm in history in my opinion. Everything is upgradable except for the receiver. You can add new trigger kits, barrels, stocks, sight, you can truly have it your way. With a new stock, you can have similar look and feel of an AR-15 rifle. Put a bull barrel on it and you now have a target rifle. On mine, I upgraded the stock with a pistol grip and added a bull barrel and new sights. It is a great training firearm for teaching new people how to shoot. The magazines are wonderful and always operate. This is by far the best starter .22lr rifle available today and the price is great too. Have fun with this gun.
I've owned my Ruger 10/22 since I was a kid. It was manufactured in 1975 and I don't know of a better, more reliable, more accurate .22LR. It's easy to strip for cleaning and I've put thousands of rounds through it. There are hundreds of accessories for this fine old legend but I've kept mine original. Highly recommended!
