10/22 stainless...receiver finish question



Log in to see fewer ads
In the past, I thought the "stainless" versions had a SS barrel and a grey coated receiver.

Today, I was looking at New 10/22's...blued & stainless. The shop only had one stainless, but it appeared that the receiver was bare aluminum, which I prefer to a coating.

Are all new 10/22 stainless rifles like this?

Thanks,
DW

The ones I have played with have been clear coated aluminum.

The only stainless thing ever on a 10/22 is the barrel. The silver cast alum. Receivers have had many diff. coatings over the years... some better than others.
If.. IF you hate it.. or in time ding/scratch it all up you can do this with some time and shop tools...

I should have been more clear...I am aware the receivers are aluminum.

Thanks for the insight. Basically, I am wondering if I order a new Stainless 10/22, if I can't find one locally, what will I end up getting for a receiver finish. I like the one I saw, but I am not ready to purchase until after the holidays.

I'm not looking to strip or modify the finish.

What you are seeing on the rack these days is what you will get.. That is IF it's fresh stock... so if ya like it go for it. The photo's on Rugers web-site should reflect the current up-to-date inventory/finish. Hard to say what that is exactly and Ruger customer service prob. won't/can't tell you.

This is what you will get as far as an OEM finished receiver if you were to order one. Either gray or matte black depending on model.
