I have a Ruger 10/22, I love it. The BX25 makes it fun to shoot 25 rounds at a time. However, to get an Adjustable LOP stock, a bull barrel, and have it pillar bedded and free-floated would cost me just the same as if I bought an AR15 in 22LR
And it still wouldn't be an AR. It would be a 10/22. Which is fine. But they cost the same if they are optioned out the same.
