how old is YOUR 10/22 ?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi guys..
Was just thinking of that summer long ago... summer of 76'
Walked into the gunshop in blairstown Missouri.
Plunked down my hay hauling money for a Ruger 10/22 and a Ruger super single six.
9 inch barrel.
Still have them both.
If only i had a nickel for every round fired through them.. i would be retired! !
Soon... I'm sending in my old rifle, let Randy do his thing on her.
a zillion memories with her. All good.

1973 carbine, my first. We always remember our first one, don't we! Still original. I recently acquired a fingergroove that I'm refinishing and plan to put on it. Topped with a Bushnell Banner .22 (Japan) 4x19 scope in '79 for chuck hunting.

2010 carbine for my stepson. Radiused, headspaced to .043, and polished the bolt. Did a little work on the trigger and got it to an average 2.6 # pull. Has a little pre-travel but nice clean break.

2013 stainless takedown. KIDD trigger job w/bolt release, bolt and curved charging assembly. UTG Bug Buster scope.

2015 stainless barrel carbine for the receiver ($124.00 Walmart closeout). KSA 18" bull barrel. TI trigger housing with Hornet trigger group. Swapped out the trigger and mag release with red TI parts. I radiused, headspaced to .043, and polished the bolt. TI charging handle. All put in a brown Revolution Tundra stock. Topped off with a Swift Premier 4-12x40 AO scope. Total weight is 8.9#. This was my first build in 2010 that I put together using my '73 receiver. Decided to put that back as original.

2013 KIDD build. Classic receiver. ULW barrel. 2.5# single stage trigger group. Scalloped bolt with Viton charging assembly. Put it all in an brown Altamont Barracuda stock. Topped with a Nikon P-Rimfire 2-7x32 scope. Total weight is 6# even.

Don't know if I'm done yet, I haven't breathed my last.

Mine is a 2009 DSP, bought new, all stock except the bolt stop. I used to have a 1980 carbine, also bought new. I sanded the "walnut" off, and refinished the birch with clear poly. Otherwise left stock. I only had it a couple of years.

I'm not sure how old my grandpas 10/22 is. It had a walnut stock originally though. My kids build is probably 3 or 4 years old now and my takedown is 6 months.

Mine is 1984ish. Bone stock other than a Volquartsen trigger. Quite a few boxes of Federal bulk pack through it, and the roughly as old Mark II bull barrel, mostly at beer cans and other hapless targets with my then young sons.

I'm plotting and scheming to turn it into a bench rest gun, and how, or whether to buy another to upgrade.

I was born in late 1978, so my "boyhood" 10/22 (and first gun) was a 1993 model purchased in that year. It came with a choate pistol grip stock, and has seen thousands of rounds, especially Blazer (it was 99 cents per box at the time) and the annoying 40 round boxes of American Eagle (also 99 cents; I guess we gave up ten shots for some copper and a hole in the nose!).

It is currently rigged as a lightweight scoped plinker, with aftermarket barrel, TG switched to plastic, and skeletonized OEM stock. The soul is still there, though <3

I also found a very good condition 1978 carbine this year, and got it for myself as an early birthday present. Still resisting the urge to do anything to it

Which one???

Mine range in age from 1965 to 2007.

6 from the 60's
6 from the 70's
6 from the 80's
6 from the 90's
3 from the 2000's

Guess I must have a thing for the older one's.

No plastic parts 10-22's in my safe.

I bought my first one in 1979. It's the one with the checkered walnut stock. The trigger was so hard to pull I had a gunsmith fix it in 1985. It now has a complete Kidd trigger with extended mag release. I own a new takedown also, it has the 1979 trigger in it now. No plastic parts for me!

I purchased mine brand new in the early 1960's, serial number 42xx. It was $54.50 and I had a $44.00 trade in so it was $10 out the door. Just last week made it "new" by putting on a Magpul stock. All Volquartsen internals with a Butler Creek barrel. Will shoot inside a dime at 50 yards all day long.
