View Full Version : New takedown toy followed me home today

August 5, 2012, 12:39 PM
I have been wanting a Ruger 10/22 for years, and when I saw the new takedown model. I was not leaving without it.

Questions on a preferrd sight option...
1) Hi Vis style open sights
2) A decent priced scope (made for .22)
3) Red dot system.

Thank you in advance for your opinions!!

well the .22 LR specific scopes i know of is BSA, Nikon, an Sun optics but everyone including Leupold makes a rimfire scope. i have a Weaver 40/44 3x9-40mm on my .17 HMR.

Current issue of Gun Test magazine praised your new rifle, but didn't care for two others in a comparison. They say yours is a sweet shooter that hits a home run while the others walked or struck out.

Thank you for the link Steelchickenshooter, but I do not care to spend $24 (yr) to pull up an article. And, there are some negative posts about that site. I will make my own opinions as I get an opportunity to burn through a "brick" or so.
Thanks again.

I plan on eventually getting one myself and plan on equipping it with a tech-sight and threading the barrel.

You say "thank you in advance for your opinions" and you reply by saying you will make your own opinions? All I implied was that I think, and others think, you have a very nice rifle compared to a couple other brands.

I have a bushnell on my 10/22, it's 17 years old and is perfect for rimfire. I like it, it holds zero and is repeatable. You probably looking for a low profile scope, 4x?

Please keep us posted on range results, and what you think. I always love to hear actual end users evaluations, and I have a lot of interest in this new Ruger!

Thanks, Bimmer

Congrats RickE! I also recently bought a 10/22 Takedown, and I'm interested in some of the same accessories as you, but have selected any yet.

I really like the gun a lot, and I shoot it pretty well for a beginner.

Steelchickenshooter, I did not mean my response to sound that way, sorry. I was frustrated then the magazine web site wanted me to spend $24 to pull up the article. As I mentioned, I need to burn through a brick os so before I decide on the sight options. Thank you.

I went with the EOTech XPS2-0 red dot sight for my own 10/22 TD. Really like the setup!

Yea but eotecs are pricey. I mean do you really want a $500 sight on a $200 rifle?

Good optics are worth the money! I have a savage 10fp and put a nightforce Optic on it. Best pice of glass. The price of the night force I could have bought 3 new rifles.

If RickE will phone 269 934 1122 and leave a message with a mailing adress, I can send the magazine article. If you get an out-of-office answer- ignore that and leave the mailing address anyway.
