Felixx congrats on the rifle. I have three 10/22s and i have only had problems with one of them. It would not always eject the empty. I put a new Volquartsons extractor in it and its 100% now. I think the stronger spring was the answer.
I was interested in this rifle also but did read a post about one rifle where the take down fitting pulled out of the receiver. Apparently it is a press fitted part. I thought the post was on this forum or THR but I'll be danged if I can find it.
Ruger told him to send it back but he was going to repair it himself. I think he was a pretty smart joe because his repair sounded like it should work. Its what I would have done without a warranty. But if Ruger would repair it I would have sent it to them.
And I really like your choice of a scope.
Some people think an English Bulldog looks great... many more people can't tell one end from the other, even by smell.
A village in Kenya called. They want their idiot back.
