I like mine a lot. It's more accurate than I am, and a lot of fun to shoot. When I reassemble after takedown, it's just as accurate as it was before. It is also more reliable than either of my semi-auto pistols. I haven't had any sort of malfunction in the last 500 rounds or so. Add a couple of BX-25s and it's a real good time.
I know 10/22s and 22 rifles in general are historically cheap. However, this is my only 22 rifle, and it is the most bang for the buck I've gotten out of any of the four guns I own.
