No pictures. Bought a 10/22 that had the Archangel AR imitation kit installed. The forearm/barrel shroud made it hard to wipe down. As a field rifle it rusted in one summer.

There are tons of Marlin 60s that are rusted and busted stocks around here. Rarely see a 10/22 in the same condition.

A word of caution while on the topic of rusted guns:
thoroughly investigate a rusty gun you find, they may be remnants from a house fire.

Headed to kodiak soon, I'll try and locate a few skiff guns. Have seen 1022s that rusted the front sights off...... local lore in Alaska are the native skiff rifles from up north. You'd be hard pressed to find rifles treated worse.

Nothing was broken, but it was ugly and rusty.

I saw one once that someone had drilled holes into the barrel. like 10-12 small holes all the way through. Went back to buy it, sold... Spoke to the guy who bought it and he said it actually shot ok. No mention of accuracy but it was pretty darn rough!

There is a youtube pawn shop video where he talks about Marlin vs Ruger 10/22 and all the problems that happen with marlins and how the 10/22s just keep on chugging along. Rusty and Ugly does not a broken 10/22 make.

I ran across a stainless/camo take down about a month ago and popular lgs, used and abused, this joker had to try to get it in this kind of abused shape. $239. Sat for weeks. I was a player at 200 but that is probably what they had in it, I could have got it back rolling and acceptable again, but it would have taken a lot of time and elbow grease. It finally sold.

I was working in an indoor shooting range years ago, and a guy came in and asked how much a 10/22 stock was. I looked it up and told him, and he said that was more than he paid for the gun. So he turned the stock down, and then asked where our dumpster was. I asked him why he wanted to know where our dumpster was, and he said that the stock on his kid's 10/22 had gotten broken, and it wasn't worth buying a new stock, so he was going to throw the gun away.

I told him that I'd take it if he was going to throw it away. He want out to his car and came back a couple of minutes later, and handed me the rifle and broken stock. The gun turned out to be a 1969 model, one of the last ones with no prefix in the serial number. The stock was broken laterally, split at the mag well from right to left, and the barrel had about 40% of the finish sanded off. God only knows what this guy's son had done to the rifle, but it was in real poor shape.

I still have it. Originally, I put a folding stock on it, and used it for a camp rifle. About 5 years ago, I decided to restore it, and found a walnut stock on Gun Broker. I still have to send the barrel back to Ruger to get it reblued. It's one of the barrels with no warning on it, just the Ruger name and city of manufacture and serial number. So I want to keep it original. It's turned out to be a pretty decent gun after I nursed it back to health.

Always looking for a old broken down 10-22. All I want is the action to make up a new rifle of my own designs.
