If you want to leave it stock and want the most accurate 10/22 possible, get the targer model. They are extremely accurate and cost less than modifying a base model to shoot as good (usually). The target model is a beautiful gun with a hammer forged barrel that looks great. Check out Ruger's website for more info on it.
If I were you I'd modify my own before I put money into a target model.
A target model around here costs about $350, a standard model costs about $160. With that $190 you can get a nice stock/barrel combo to go on you standard model, sell your factory stock and barrel for 20 bucks a piece and then you'd have $230 to spend instead of buying the Target model.
The hammer forged barrels are pretty though...
That's just my opinion.
If you want a non Target model then I don't think there's an accuracy difference between any of them. You can do the trigger work yourself if you've got the tinkering ability and confidence or put $30 into a Volquartsen hammer.
Thanks guys! I was mulling over you advice and went to wally world to check prices. I bought the one they had in stock. I just snapped (come on you've been there) and forgot all adivce. Any way its the stainless long barrel with a checkered wood stock.
Thanks again (I'm off to try it out )
