I love that stock. It also doesn't look that much more heavy from the standard take downs.

For whatever it's worth, it's available through the Gallery of Guns network now... $333 versus the $429 msrp, before tax, title and... Um... Just tax, and the local dealer's fee.

Edited: ah, I see I was looking at the wrong model. Go-min-ah-saiei

$512 total for me in a couple of dealers nearby.

I just checked the Gun Genie

MSRP of $629
Using the Gun Genie, and picking the 21133 model.
Best price in 50 miles is $460 + fees and Tax = total of $503.86

Will the take down version diminish the accuracy?

I looked at one of these briefly today...for just under $500 you get the 10/22 in a RAR stock with two combs (one for a scope) and no sights. I already have a suppressor so it seems like a good thing to buy. I wonder if the bull "target" barrel will provide the accuracy we would expect....

I got mine last week:



I haven't had much time to do anything but mount a scope and test fire it. Has a nice heft that you don't normally get from a 10/22.

Maybe, maybe not. There's this:

http://www.gunblast.com/Ruger-1022TD.htm

I'd say his accuracy was as good as any standard 10/22. (Good data there on ammo to try, too.)

However: That article is by a professional reviewer and I find it hard to believe the factory doesn't send them 'best of ten' or specially prepped guns.

In addition I found that shimming the barrel shank improved the accuracy of my (standard barrel) TD significantly. That's not a practical long term solution -- getting the shim in there right is too fussy for field use -- so I've now converted a regular 10/22 barrel to a tight-fitting TD barrel. I haven't done serious testing with it yet but it looks okay at 25Y.

In theory the 'adjustment knob' takes out play. It cannot, however give you the stiffness needed for good accuracy. (Stiffness is important because of barrel vibration.)

The issue of barrel fit is difficult because two pieces of some soft metals rubbed together can effectively weld. That's called 'galling' and stainless steel does it. Special lubricants and keeping the joint very clean can keep that from being a problem but obviously Ruger couldn't sell them that way -- they have to put more clearance in there.

Yet another issue is what you consider good accuracy. I'd guess the majority of shots from a TD are fired at tin cans. At distances out to 50Y or so beer cans are an endangered species with almost any TD.

See what I mean about 'maybe'?

Hello Everyone, new member here. I just picked up the same rifle. Does anyone know who makes this particular barrel? Is it a Ruger made barrel or is it a third party? If it is a Ruger barrel, how does it measure up to other aftermarket barrels?
