    Old Fashioned...

    I guess I'm just an old fashioned kind of guy. I love my .22's and I have a few. Most are Winchesters and I have a couple of 52's, a 9422, and a couple of 63's. The 63 is one of my favorites, but I shoot a Browning 52 Sporter in our clubs turkey shoots. I always win a turkey! My newest .22 is a Winchester 1885 Low Wall and I won a turkey with it too. I have nothing against the 10-22, everyone seems to have one (not me). One 10-22 guy in our club gives me a good run for the money at our shoots, but like I said, My old fashioned rifles do just fine.

    What kind of 10/22 is he shooting Ted? I just got me a Bergara M14R to scope and play with and am working on a 10/22 with a .920 Kidd barrel and an RGB Bravo stock...

    I guess I'm the odd man out. I've never owned or even fired a 10/22, but I did look at one in a gun shop once.

    I never had, nor wanted a 10/22, not sure why. I'm sure they are excellent plinkers.

    When I was a kid, I wanted a Remington Nylon 66 SO bad. Never got one though.
    The older I get, the more I realize "life in prison" is not that much of a deterrent.

    Properly built modern 10-22 type rifles are competing right up there with the best bolt rifles in the precision rimfire arena.

    I have several .22 rifles. Most are Henry's, but, I have a Remington Target Master and now my Ruger 10/22. If I do my job, my Ruger 10/22 will shoot hole in hole and is probably the most accurate of all my rifles. I would say my M40 clone is the closest.

    Re: Old Fashioned...

    That's the nice thing about the 10-22. It's like an AR15, you can do lots of stuff to one and there are tons of aftermarket parts available. I just prefer steel to aluminum. The old guns have craftsmanship that just isn't being done today except by custom makers. I haven't done anything to accurize my .22's. They shoot just fine the way they came.

    Exactly why I have used a few stainless Volquartsen receivers over the years. They can be fun under the right conditions and with the right ammo. Not cheap by any means, but fun. Easy to spend as much on a quality 10-22 as an M14.

    Re: Old Fashioned...

    A good discussion can be had comparing all of the different 10/22 pattern receivers, just like we've had in the past, comparing all of the different M14 receivers. These 10/22 pattern receivers aren't all equal. Tactical Solutions, Kidd, Volquartsen are kind of like the LRB's of the 10/22 world.
