Ruger 10/22 Target Lite



Log in to see fewer ads
Does anyone have any idea of what kind of accuracy I can expect from a Ruger 10/22 Target Lite. Using CCI Mini mag or Federal auto match.

100% OEM probably about 2 1/2" - 3" groups @50 yards.

I have / had one. Waste of money.

First of all, its in a a laminate stock as heavy as an anvil, so whats the point of having a light barrel.

Second the barrel is about as accurate as a stock carbine barrel. Believe me I tried everything, to no avail. The only thing that improved it up to carbine level was i took off the thread protector, which has a giant chamber at the end , which imho creates an inaccuracy vortex, and put on a simple muzzle break from JWH.

Asked CPC if he could fixed it, nope.

So it got repurposed, the action and barrel from my brown precision came out of its lightweight kevlar stock, another funny idea, and into the Ruger Laminate Anvil, and the Lite action and barrel into the featherweight kevlar stock.

Welcome to Rimfire Central Trolltoes! I bought one a month or so ago as a binary trigger platform but haven't had a chance to try it out yet.

Just a couple thoughts as counterpoint. Although the "Target" in the name may be optimistic it does have the BX trigger assembly. I think expecting 1" groups and under at 50 yards and 2" groups and under at 100 yards would be entirely reasonable. I guess I'll find out!

Personally I think it's a sexy looking rig and at 5 pounds it's the same weight as a standard wood stocked 10/22 carbine. The short threaded barrel makes it perfect as a suppressor host as well.

Cheers,

Frank

Well I got mine when they first came out, I traded into it when the the RPR I bougght when the first came out was destroyed by Ruger after the third time back to customer service.i asked tem iff. I could get a different gun and Ruger being great said sure so I chose the Target Lite. It went back too. It had a ski sloped receiver that pointed the scope towards the moon, and terribly finished inletting, the laminate was left unsanded and porcupined. The new one they sent back was cosmetically perfect, cycled flawlessly and shot poorly . But after over a year of frustration from when I first purchased the RPR and 4 return cycles, I gave up.

So ,I hope they got the bugs out, and yours shoots good, if it does, tell us, and ill send mine back.

As for the stock being the same weight as a carbine stock, unless they changed materials, thats only on paper

Good morning Toomany22's!

Yeah there's wood fuzz growing out of those forward slots. They could have done better. The weights I stated are complete rifle not just the stock. Now come on 5 pounds is not an anchor

I may be over optimistic on group size, but I based it on prior experience with multiple lightly modded 10/22's. A good bench, a solid rest, a nice day. 2 MOA on the outside and 1 MOA on the inside is entirely reasonable.

Have a fine friday!

Frank

1/2 inch groups at 50 yards,, size of a Quarter. Yeah mine can do that. But not the size of a nickel, or a dime. Which all my aftermarket barrels do.

If I hadnt paid $500 and wasted over a year , I wouldn’t be so bitter

Its a sore spot, Im sorry to have overreacted .

But on the bright side, it helped me determine that I dont like short barrels, that I like muzzle heavy rifles, that being a first adapter isnt good for me,

The stock works great as a bench stock especially with the 24 inch Shilen Bull Barrel off setting the Anvil like butt stock.

No worries Toomany22's, we're just trading opinions

For reference though, a US quarter is .955"...just a frog hair off of 2 MOA at 50 yards. https://www.usmint.gov/learn/coin-an...specifications

OK, I'm at work and have pilgrims to pillage and the employees aren't going to flog themselves

The finish on the stock left a lot to be desired. After some sanding and bedding I'm pretty happy with mine. The best five shot group so far was 0.43 MOA and almost always under 1 MOA at 50 meters using SK Rifle Match.
