mid range 22 rifles for blinking what to buy ruger? or what
Ruger 10/22 is the best .22 long rifle you can buy. They have so many aftermarket gizmo's for them you never can get bored with it. They are tried and true reliable rifles.
I think you need to define your question a little better Brigade Commander Heavy. The .22 caliber rifle is the most differently produced firearm of any type of personal firearm in all the world. As for a mid range .22 caliber the Ruger is a good weapon, but why buy a Ruger when for a little extra more you can buy a civilian M16 or M4 carbine semi-automatic that will give you a rifle of superb quality and better firepower than the Ruger. These civilian clone weapons range in price from under 600.00 dollars to more than 10,050.00 dollars. But the lower priced ones are well worth the price and you will get a higher quality, longer lasting weapon, especially if you just need a "varmint" rifle. If you will define your question more precisely I can help you more. A .22 caliber can easily include any weapon chambered for the NATO standard 5.56mm x 45mm round as a .223 caliber. The Remmington chambered for the Remington .223 SPC is an excellent weapon if you are willing to pay the price.
he agrees with hillbilly... you can get a 10/22 for a couple hundred bucks and accessories are everywhere, its reliable, and won't break your wallet. If you want an AR type of rifle, thats a different story
Why spend 200 bucks on a .22 with cheap ammo that you can shoot all day long when you can spend close to a grand for a rifle that uses ammo that costs 40 bucks for 100 rounds? Back to your question, a 10/22 is a great .22 rifle, the best you can get for the money. You can also look at the Marlin model 60, but they suck ass after they get a bit dirty. If you keep it clean, it's fun.
Sometimes I think you just try to start arguements. He said mid range .22 for plinking. I don't think that an AR weapon falls into that catagory. Also, I have a civ M-4, and I promise you it wasn't just a little bit more. Here, for the price of a 10/22 you may get the stripped reciever, and nowhere near a compleate rifle.
