I'm not a fan of the take down model. My buddy has one and some times it can be a real pain in the ass to take apart. Also it limits the after market accessories you can put on it. Lastly the 10/22 carbine is a pretty small gun, I can take mine throw it in my pack and it only sticks out a couple inches.
That being said, I love my 10/22, very reliable, so many after market parts, and small and light weight. I have probably ~10-15k rds through it and it stills runs great. I paid $250 for it because it had a real tree camo stock, but you can find them below $200. You wont be disappointed with a 10/22, good cheap fun.
