77/22 or 10/22



Log in to see fewer ads
I traded one of my early springer rws. I have this choice. The 77/22 is very nice with some very small wood marks where mag goes in. Itís very clean. Also a 10/22 carbine, however this carbine has a factory history of a trigger & tune by what I remember as an Indian name of a US Marine. It also has the round sticker on the R side of the stock. itís signed an looks like the date is 1988. Kinda silver and red and shows wear. The 10/22 is not in as good of shape as the 77/22. This will probably be my only Ruger rifle. Not just talking money, this is family so if one comes out better we really are not concerned. I have interest in both but donít need either. Commish

Not sure if it makes a difference to you, but the 10/22 is a special edition of 93 rifles. More info available here: https://www.rugersociety.com/forums/...=156&start=200

eh..... as rifles go, they kinda fill different slots (in my mind/use style), and if you were buying new I'd say skip the 77/22 and focus on CZ 45x vs. 10/22. Then I'd tell you to buy both.

Since this is a "family thing" though, and you say values don't really fall into place, I'd say get whichever one draws your attention more, that has more sentimental value, or gives you more of a warm fuzzy feeling when you look at it.

The 77/22 is no longer made, so there are just a fixed number available. Do you prefer a bolt action or would you enjoy the autoloader more? Does owning the special edition 10/22 appeal to you? Sounds like you can shoot them both and pick the one that you like the best.

If it were me, no contest -- the 77/22. It's a nice bolt action rifle and as said above, no longer made. But after market stuff is still available -- triggers, barrels, stocks -- or leave it stock.

yup, as much as I like building and shooting the 10/22's, if I had a choice between those two, and could only have one, I'd take the 77/22..especially if it's an early one

I've got two, a blued/walnut version and a ss/synthetic All-Weather...you can't go wrong either way with the 77/22

I have both. the 10-22 now shoots as well at the bolt after I installed a Shaw barrel. The 77/22 improved after I did a VQ sear and spring. Both were easy fixes to bring out the true potential of these guns.

Iíd take the 77/22.

I have an early 77/22 (top) and I like itís classic lines even more than my CZ453 American (middle).

It wonít shoot with the CZ (a solid 5 shot 1 MOA at 100 yards rifle), but after bedding the action, free floating the barrel and shimming the bolt itís a very credible 1.5 MOA rifle at 100 yards.

The 77/22, no doubt. I have several of each and the 77/22 is more valuable.

That said, My soon to be 10 year old grandson will agree. He prefers the bolt action to the semi auto., Mine has a Shilen barrel, Vorquartsen sear and shimmed bolt. Very accurate. I like the lines and the feel when handling, too me the ergonomics are perfect.

I have several of the 10-22 rifles, all built up with high end quality trigger groups, bolts, ect. One with a custom Fajan classic American sporter stock, one like a M-1 carbine, two Mannlichers, and the one with a 90's vintage birch stock I stripped and refinished, with fantastic tiger stripe. I gave it to the grandson. It is also fitted with a Kidd trigger in a Pike Arms cnc aluminum trigger group, and I found an earlier metal buttplate, so no plastic .
