Hey guys. I have a Ruger 10/22 carbine that I absolutely love. Very accurate rifle. I am wanting to get a second (as I want to keep my current one with iron sights) and make either a "tatical" or "sniper" setup. I recently went shooting with a friend of mine and he had his 10/22 with a cheap (and I do mean cheap) red dot. But it was spot on!!! Deadly accurate! I don't know if I want a red dot type scope or an actual magnafication scope. What ideas do ya'll have for 10/22s???--Bboy623

If you're only going to be shooting out to about 70 yards, the tasco red dot is not a bad choice. I have one on a 10/22 and it pokes a hole where the dot is. Target acquisition is quick and easy and it's <100 bucks.

I've got the hogue rubber stock on mine with a heavy butler creek fluted barrel. I could likely shoot a little farther than I do with it, but it's just for close in plinking.

My wife has the same stock on hers with a butler creek carbon fiber and stainless target barrel. It shoots just as good as mine and is a lot lighter. Hers has a simmons .22 mag scope on it and we compete at 50 yards.

If you're shooting further than 75 yards, get some magnification and enjoy it. Closer than 70 yards that red dot is a lot of fun.
If God didn't want me to play with it, he'd of made my arms shorter.

Just get a low to moderate magnification variable scope either parallax adjusted for 50 yds/meters (often identified by being called a "rimfire model"), or with parallax adjustment that goes down to at least 50 yards or less.  Pick a reticle you like.  A fixed 4X also makes a great rimfire scope.

SVT-tatical---thanks for the link....Exactly what I'm looking to do...something like that. Hmm, I wonder if I can use a Super Sniper for dual purpose: a new 10/22 setup and for my AR. If I sight it in on my AR, do you think I could put it on my 10/22 as well? Does the SS have something where I know where my "zero" is on my AR and where my "zero" is on my 10/22?
If I don't go with a actual scope, I may do a red dot. Also, what is my best method for my new 10/22: buying a new 10/22 and converting parts, buying a used 10/22 and converting parts, or can you build one from the ground up as long as the bolt sale goes through a FFL?? Cause I have heard there are some crazy options such as barrels etc for the 10/22. I've looked some on rimfirecentral. I know a lot of people like the Volest...(spelling) stuff.
Right now I just want a "toy" to punch paper VERY ACCURATELY at 100 yards or so. But a friend of mine were talking and we may get into shooting tournaments. ---Bboy623

The reciever is the only thing that has to come through a FFL.  If i were to do another any time soon i would get one from Tactical Inovations. Receivers come with the rail machined in and i could get the parts i want and do as i want.

I also have a Leupold VX-I 2-7x33 I'm wanting to sell if you want something similar to that. I just honestly don't see spending that much for a .22 when cheaper scopes often work great on them. The Simmons I used certainly isn't as clear as a Burris or Vortex but it's clear enough and help up great.

Thanks for the replies guys. I guess I need to figure out what I want. I've thought about red dots, those BSA .22 scopes that have trajectory built in, a SWFA Super sniper, ...and that redfield DOES look nice Medic52. Decisions, decisions, decisions. It will be a little while though as I've gotta get a scope for my 30-06 first. This 10/22 I was thinking of doing a "sniper" setup. What is the max range for a .22???? 100 yards?---Bboy623

My 10/22 has the Hogue rubber stock with the Butler Creek carbon fiber barrel, Power Custom intrals, and a Tasco 4X.
I had a Tasco WC 3-9 on it, but pulled it in favor of the straight 4.
I seldom shoot 100 yds, but I've seen similar setups with a
Bushnell 6-24, and Bushnell Holosight which looks really cool.

You've got a lot of inexpensive options, especially if you have, or plan to buy an AR. You can mix them around until you get a good fit.
I like to measure powder by the cup.

You can tell a lot about a man by the edge he keeps on his pocket knife.

Corn   your .22 must look quite a bit like this one.



It's a good shooting gun. My wife stole it from me and that forced me to buy another.

That is an interesting use of old tires. Looks like a very effective way to catch high flyer's.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow

You are correct sir.

It's our company Lake and Gun club range. The tires are to keep folks from hitting cars on the highway about a mile away. It's a decent range and has targets from 15-600 yards.

Dude, you think I could get a woman if she wasn't defective? Big Smile

I was at the gun show today and saw a left handed thumbhole stock for the 10/22. If she had been with me, I'd of come home with it.

Did get it. I know we're infested with lefties. Wink

I still had to give her dad 2 goats and a pig for her despite her wanting to do everything backwards. "talked him down from a milk cow and a couple of laying hens.... I'm slick like that"  Elite

Now if I want her to know I said any of this, I'll tell her myself.  Hiding

Yes it does, except mine came with the stainless barrel so it has the dull aluminum action.

Mine was stolen as well......By my 10 yr old son.

Forgive the post hi-jack!
