Thumbs up

In the days BRFC (Before RimFire Central) minute of Tin can, Rat, wabbit, or Ssssnake was plenty good enough for most of us.

Most of us didn't know how,and/or didn't have money enough to let an "expert" massage our guns.

Next. comes RFC Sky-hooting over the horizon, and voila'...The True Spirit of Never Leaving Well-enough Alone has been let out of the bag!

Get 1 each: Hammer, Large, and Wrench, Large, Multi function MK IIa, and have at it! Oh, yeah, a file, too.

If'n we mess up...and we will...there is always good Ol' RFC to help!

Life is GOOD!

I figure that MY guns are supposed to please ME, regardless of what you think - no offense intended.
That street goes both ways, Your guns should please YOU! If you want a scope, get one. We are fortunate to have a lot of good choices for sighting accessories. I like and use all of them.
I think your rifle is the best looking of the 10-22's, I have one also.
I never own enough 10-22's, everyone wants to use them at the family fun shoots.

I thank you for the compliment and IMHO these "Sporter" 10-22's are excellent quality, super looking rifles, especially considering the nice hardwood and walnut stocks.

IMHO, for the money spent and to purchase off the shelf they are hard to beat.

Now for someone wanting to spend a few more bucks and expend a bit of effort the sky is the limit and there are some amazing 10-22's shown here on this site.

You inspired me to finish,for now, my DSP. Put on a20 in GM Sporter barrel, and a JWH bolt and handle. . Aluminum Tape bedded and a piece of bicycle tube under the barrel. Had to sand out the barrel channel a bit.

Ahhh .yes.😁

Today I actually shot one of my ten twenty 2s.
Randomly grabbed the Brownells receiver.
Factory CPC'd barrel.
Factory synthetic stock.
Kidd guide rod and charge handle.
BX trigger.
JWH bolt
But the best part is the Skinner sights.
Top quality all the way.
I like the Skinner peep sights.

Several friends have so extensively modified their Ruger 10/22's that there are no actual Ruger parts in them. All it takes is money. My approach is more along the lines of maximizing the performance of the stock equipment by means of fitting and craftsmanship, and matching ammo to the gun. Maybe I'm just cheap. To each his own kind of fun. It does my heart good, however, to see the absolute glut of truly wonderful parts and accessories for all types and models of guns - stocks, barrels, receivers, triggers, sights and anything else that we can imagine. I use some of these as it pleases me, and rejoice with those who love to accessorize! Let's go shooting!

Well, I Got My Answer

BUT....I am so smitten with the looks, feel, and handling of this rifle as it is my initial intentions are to keep it stock and just shoot it for fun.

So "Minute Of Tin Can Accuracy" may be my expectations at least for now.

Well, I got my answer this morning as I took the rifle out for its maiden voyage.

First I must say that I love the rifle, its looks, handling, etc.

BUT..........I'd forgotten how crappy a stock 10/22 trigger is!

Also my minute of tin can accuracy went out the window as I can't see the front sight at all. At around 15 yards it was more minute of softball.

SO........It's scope time for this baby.

I bought one just like that two years ago, and didn't like the factory trigger one bit. But, if you send that trigger off to Brimstone for Tier 3 "Sweet spot" trigger job (the cheapest option), you'll get it back in less than two weeks and be amazed at how nice that trigger is with factory parts. I know I was.

And the Weaver RV7 2.5-7x28 classic rimfire scope that Natchez has on sale right now will work just fine on it. I know mine does.

And FYI, the front sight, while taller than the factory original, does not interfere with a 'scope (at least not on my 10/22). Meaning, you could 'scope or red dot the rifle and keep/carry the rear Tech-Sight as a backup.

Check TECH-SIGHTS - link https://www.tech-sights.com/ruger-products/
+1 for the Tech Sights. Put TSR200 on this one. 22" barrel and cleaned up a stock trigger. I'm 58, and still don't need glasses, but the eyes aren't what they used to be. I shoot it way better with the new sights.
