    Since its 22nd October, I thought may be we can dedicate a thread to the good ole 10/22 and its story.
    Feel free to add your own pictures and comments / experience of the 10/22.

    Chambered in the 22lr, the 10/22 continues to be an inexpensive yet fun rifle providing entertainment to the shooting masses since 1960. Some claim that it is the most popular civilian / sporting firearm in the history.
    Developed by Strum Ruger in the 1960's the rifle is of a simple design by William B. Ruger,*Harry H. Sefried .Production versions started appearing in the market in 1964. Over 5 million have been manufactured to date.

    Magazines:
    The 10/22 utilized circular box type mags which would sit flush in the stock and hold 5 rounds each. Later on, standard box mags were also introduced.








    Barrel Lengths:
    Rifle: 20"
    Carbine: 18.5"
    Compact Rifle: 16.125"
    Target: 20" Bull Barrel

    Stats:
    First Produced in 1964. Offered to date.
    22lr
    Semi Auto
    Rimfire

    Variants:
    As of date, 10/22 is offered in 5 configurations with variations in stock materials, barrel length, finish etc. I found the following variants noteworthy:

    10/22 Magnum
    A 22 Magnum version was also offered from 1998 to 2006 and later withdrawn.

    10/17
    .17hmr was added in 2004 and later withdrawn in 2006.

    10/22 International
    This model was fitted with a Mannlicher stock and is now discontinued.






    AWC Ultra 2
    Integrally suppressed and resembles a bull barrel. The barrel is ported and is 16.5"






    Overall, the 10/22 is a heavily customized / experimented upon gun which saw many variations through its life. Yet it continues to be a popular firearm amongst the shooting community. Pictures from various sources on the internet are listed below to give you some idea of the shapes and sizes this rifle has adapted over the years.
































    I dont suffer from the disillusion that CZs are the ultimate handguns.
    I enjoy every minute of it

    Salam All,
    I purchased one from Harris (Karachi) back in 2006 used for 28000/rs in excellent condition. I later ordered an original mag for it, plus the scope mount plate. I have been owning and using Ruger 10/22s since 1986 and they are great guns with anything and everything available for it like the 1911 pistol accessories. Lately I sold it to a good friend of mine who is enjoying it very much. I purchased a NIB Ruger 10/22 in stainless with the black fiber stock. I already own for it a Volquartsen trigger group, Bushnell Banner scope, four Butler Creek Steel Lip Banana Magazines, three MWG 50 round tear drop mags, and oh yes, four Ruger 10 round mags.. I take out this rifle once in a while for FUN. And just for everyones info, I took it over to a Pak Army rifle shooter who was used to the Brno .22 rifle, he shot his at 50 meters laying down and I shot mine standing up with NO rests. Guess what all? They both got the SAME groupings interlinked from the bullseye to the 9. Imagine what one could do with it if they were also shooting lying down.....
    To me its the ULTIMATE in .22 rifle. I have owned other good ones like Erma, AMT, Brno... but they all went bye bye after the Ruger.

    Salam All,
    I have the same rifle; however, its now going through some major changes, I have folding Butler Creek stainless stock for it, a couple of original mags along with a couple of butler creek mags and a 50 rounder from MWG. I will be posting pics soon once completed.

    What was the factor that improved accuracy of the 10/22?

    The 10/22 is a very popular rifle indeed with 5 million sold since 1964. However for the most popular 22 rifle to date the undisputed crown goes to Marlin's Model 60 with 11 million sold since 1960.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    Salam All,
    @arfat110 - nice purchase, mine looked just like that till it went through a change. Very nice, Hira Arms Lahore has a Volquartsen adjustable trigger group housing for this 10/22.
