Ruger 10-22 50th Anniversary contest

Anyone out there voting for their favorite of the ten customer-submitted Ruger 10-22 designs? I voted for the Ruger No. 1 inspired design (brass instead of black plastic assembly).. it's coming in last place

I voted for the one that looks like the gunsight scout rifle.

I wouldn't buy any of the finalists.

I voted for the plain sporter from Rick in Alabama... but if anyone at Ruger had a clue, they'd simply tool up the old finger-grooved sporter from the 60s, with a nice piece of wood and hand-cut checkering.

That, I'd pay for. The rest I can build myself with a better trigger and barrel (chamber) than I'd get from Ruger.
Make mine lean, mean, and 9x19!

I like the checkered take-down from Tennessee.
If I were to build one, that'd be pretty close.
My bull would be longer though.

Same here. I really like the take down wood stock model as well.

I loved the brassed 10/22, most of the rest are lackluster...

I voted for the entry from Washington. It seemed to encompass the vintage look of the 10/22, while including the latest adaptation of the takedown version. Seemed more thoughtful than just another adaptation of the 10/22.

The current 1st place and last place are the only two I would want in my collection as a 50th Anniversary model.
Good Shooting, MarkCO
