I am going to get a 10/22. I intend to leave it stock, but I'm an accuracy nut. Which cofig should I get for out of the box accuracy and then which is best base for modifications

I wood buy the plain jane cheap one. Remove the barrel and stock. Buy a new stock and barrel from one of our sponsors use the tips section on your trigger group and you will be all set.

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.

If you have a Dick's Sporting Goods near you, check them out. They have the basic blue carbine on sale for $150 this week (and next, I think.) That is $10 less than the Wal-Mart regular price.

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 )
