This little guy sure is cute. Old guy was talking to me when I was looking at him telling me how cool they were. He followed me out to my truck to talk some more. Thought I wasn't going to be abe to get away from him. So I guess I made two new friends today instead of one. Now I gotta tell my wife...

I like those

10/22s can be had in an awful lot of different looks, and some of them look pretty weird, but cool.

You could always say it is for her and when she gets bored with it she is all yours. Good score I think they are one of the best if not the best .22 ever made. You get a good deal on her?

I like those 10/22's

Those Ruger 10/22's are like leggo blocks. You can find so many after market parts to put on them until you'll eventually like one way it looks. Very accurate rifles with the right parts put on them.

I'll say it's for her! She's a better shot than I am anyway, daughter of an artillery officer who pretends she can't shoot, then walks with the cash. I'm on to her, but no one else is. I guess you could say it supplements our home improvement fund.

are a little more expensive. A standard stock is about $230 around here right now. Pretty cheap for a firearm either way. At least you can still get .22 LR. I got 5000 rounds for $250 shipped today. that's a lot better than going "Bam! Bam! $1.00 Bam! Bam! $2.00."

just like you guys told me to, so she just starts laughing and says 'Oh, right!' in that very special way of hers. Then she says, 'You coulda put it in the gun safe and I never would have known.' Yeah, I said, but you lnow we don't keep secrets from each other. Besides, I wanted her to see it cause it's so pretty.

I did the same thing when I bought a 10/22, told the wife it was for her.
Now that I have started modifying it, she says, leave it alone. Busted!

Hey Sam

Maybe you can tell her your taking the manly parts off of it and putting more womanly parts on it to make it more feminine??? Hey, it's worth a try after you've already bought the parts, no need for them to go to waste are they?

Scarecrow,

No bolt is out being headspaced and engine-turned/polished/jeweled. New stock, trigger job, extractor, buffer pin, picatinny rail and a 3X9 40 Scope, charging handle, magazine release and auto bolt release, she shouldn't notice anything... LOL

Hey Sam

Those are feminine up grades aint they? LOL. I think all my rifles are SWEETER when they get make overs like those. I fall in love with them all over again. Here's what I do, when I don't have a thing in mind to buy for guns, I'll be talking with my wife and say 'oh by the way honey, I might need to buy a part for my gun'. Then a month or two later when I want a shit load of stuff I order it. When the wife comes home from the post office with everything I've ordered in her hand saying 'what's all this?' I say honey don't you remember me telling you I might need to buy some stuff for my guns? She says 'Oh yea, I remember you saying something about something for a gun'........And they say we aren't good listeners :)

I would be less worried about the 10/22 and more worried about the nutcrackers in the sewing room!!!

At least they're only out about a month of the year. The ducks, however....You always have to watch out for the ducks.

Good for a point & shoot and compact. I'd like an SLR and am looking at a Canon Rebel type. Alas, my A-1 is now kind of outmoded.

yeah, when we were in England they asked if we'd been to BEAVER castle, and I said, No, but I've been to BELL_VOIR. Typical dumb American. On the other hand, Featherstoneshaugh is pronounced FANshaw, so I don't see how we colonials can be expected to keep up.

colorful stock

Schuyler,
my old man has a matching set of a commemoration (I can not rember what they are commemorating...). The stocks came in a vertical lamination starting with red, then white, and finally blue. I like these different colored stocks for the 10/22. This is a great looking rifle.

The 10/22 designation is applied to .22 semi-auto rifles made by Ruger. Within that designatiion are several dozen rifles with varying characteristics, but made with the same basic works. They all shoot .22 long rifle with the exception of the magnum, which uses a slightly different round.

As nearly as I can tell the shv-l-lr designation is usually associated with the Mossberg brand, although I have seen it elsewhere. It's actually an ammunition designation that says the piece will shoot High Velocity Shorts (SHV), longs (l) and long rifle (LR) ammo, or altogether in .22 caliber:

"22-shv-l-lr"

So, the two designations are comparing apples and oranges, or, in this case, model versus ammo type. Hope this helps.

Mark, I don't quite understand your question. Are you asking the difference between short, long, and long rifle ammo or about the Ruger model 10/22 rifle?

the reason I was asking, I restored New Haven 250 CA 22 with maple stock and reblued this 22 it has no s# w/10 rnd clip and to me a 22 is a 22.
I wanted to know the the dif between them and the value. I mostly play around with the older guns or black powder muzzle loaders and match cord or ball and cap guns. and I'm trying to learn all I can in referance to my collection just like when you all talk about 9MM I think .36cal and such.

thank for the info
(I know I should get into the 21 century)
