This will be, "My Next Gun".

(And thanks to the OP for bringing us this good news).

Wasn't sure what to expect with the 10/22, but it was a nice surprise. A little heavier & pricier than some take downs, but I think Ruger's take down mechanism is better than most, and it shot accurately out of the box.

I haven't done much to my current 10/22 but can get 1.5 inch groups at 25m with cheap ammo so once I polish the sear etc.. and put some good ammo through it I should do better. I want to try it at 50m which would probably be my limit with that rifle. The more ammo I put through it the more I like it I put a utg rail on it but think I might have got a bit carried away by all you tacticool people I can't take the rifle apart without taking the rail off as it has an integral scope mount which screws into the receiver. I want to be able to take the trigger out for cleaning without too much pissing around.
My next mission is turning my 6.5mm mauser into a long range deer rifle now I know the barrel is good. Got 4 shots touching at 25m so will put a good scope on it and push it out to 200m for a start.
Hi Kiwihunter;

Sorry about the delay - just finished posting grades earlier this evening so the last few days have been a special kind of hell over here...

I definitely am with you on the utility of a scope for aging eyes.

FWIW, I have a couple of 1" groups at 50 yds, which is about the best I have done at that range with my 10/22. Once you polish the sear (better yet, put in an adjustable one to take out all the creep, then add an overtravel stop to the trigger...) it will easily do that. My poor 10/22 is hampered by my shoddy marksmanship, so I suspect yours will do rather better in the near future...

Interesting to read about your 6.5 Mauser project. Which Mauser receiver are you using? I had an old Belgian Mauser 98 re barreled to '06 25 years back and I really regret selling it. From time to time I think about picking up some beater M98 and going through all that again, since the results were so positive.

Anyway, back on topic, I checked out that takedown 10/22 at the local shop again and it is definitely my next 'must have'. If I wasn't halfway through another project ($$$) I would take the plunge now, since it looks like it locks up tight, and it sounds like the other takedown 10/22 I have been lusting after is unobtainium (Marlin 39TDS).

All the best,
Grumpy

Hi Grump sorry for the slacking, I got my 10/22 takedown today and she is a right sexy little beast just got to decide what scope to put on it. The bc25 mag fits it nice but I haven't put any rounds through it yet so don't know how it functions.
Got it for $600NZ which works out about $450 US which is a pretty good price for over here.
I will put a rear buffer in it and polish the sear and maybe put a target hammer in, but don't want to spend too much on it.
Once I put a scope on her I will see how well it returns to zero after breaking down and reassembling. Hopefully it holds zero.

The 6.5mm was my old mans and all I know about it is it's a Husqvarna Vapenfabriks Aktiebolag. I'm not sure what model it is. It has a synthetic stock.
Seems to shoot ok so will give it a go and put a decent scope on it.

Next report will be on how well the take down shoots and returns to zero
Best wishes mate

Hi Kiwihunter;

Excellent, glad to read that your kit has arrived! Please do post results!

Those rear buffers are odd things - just about every one I see advertised claims a fairly modest round count ("replace every 800 rounds", etc), but I must have close to 5000 rounds through mine (probably about 1/5 of them Stingers) and on last inspection its going strong....some impact evidence, but no cracking or tearing. Makes me feel a bit embarrassed to have a couple of spares on hand.

"Husky's" are fine rifles, I would say you have a winner there! The 6.5 should be a near ideal deer cartridge in a light hunting rifle. Maybe something like a 2-7x32 scope would be best? Not sure how much open turf you have for long shots in NZ, so maybe a light scope like that would suffice?

Anyway, great to hear from you and hope your new 10/22 is a champ!
Grumpy

Thanks Grumpy, yeah so far the new bang stick is great. I have run into one little issue, I want to stick a 3-9 variable scope on it but when I mounted my redfield, it was too long and stuck out of the bag when I put it back in. I am now on the hunt for a shorter scope so I can leave it mounted.

Over here they either don't claim any round count for the rear buffers, or I found this one which guarantees at least 10,000 rounds. Ruger Bolt Stop 10/22 Longlife Polymer Buffer | Trade Me

If you could be bothered they look pretty easy to make, but at about $10 I don't think I will give it a go.

We do have some pretty open country down in the South Island and if I ever decide to hunt Himalayan Thar, the shots would be between 300 and 600m so I might go for a fairly big scope, maybe one of those 4-24 variable ones so I can still use it for bush hunting but wind it up for longer range.
The Husky seems pretty good, but looking down the barrel the last 5 inches or so before the muzzle has quite worn rifling so I will have a think about chopping the barrel back or just leaving it. Once I do some 100 and 200m shooting with it I will make my mind up then.

I will keep you posted on the 10/22 once I put a few rounds through her
Best wishes

Cheers for the Vid Kevin and review ShotGunBill
Out of curiosity is that shipping costs or duty? So much for free trade if it is the latter.

$300 even here in California for a new TD.

Ruger also has a limited edition take down with blue stock and red luggage. Pretty cool looking.

I doubt it's shipping costs, just retailer mark up. Rifles are usually about twice the price here than in the States. Scopes and other accessories are 100s of % mark up. Mags $40 for a 10 shot 10/22 factory mag. $100 for a 5 shot mini 14 mag

Man I love the look of that blue takedown can't justify spending any more money of new rifles yet

Have a Papoose (well my grandson has it) and an AR7 but will be picking up one of these soon as the price drops to normal. Just hard to beat a 10-22. Is the factory 25 rd mag metal or plastic?

Unless they've changed in the last 10 years, they're plastic. But it's heavy-duty stuff, like their new polymer trigger guards (which I don't like...).

They haven't made 25 rnd mags for 10 yrs. They just came out two years ago, but both 10 and 25 round mags are made of high density plastic. Tactical Innovations DOES make an aluminum 25 rnd mag that is similar to the Ruger.

My bad...when I read that yesterday, I was thinking 10-rounders.

Never mind me, carry on.

Gah! I don't know why but I really like the blue. The prospect of a red bag does nothing for me though.

Stopped by the local gun shop and he has the limited edition blue one in the display case at $399. Just too much money for me for a .22 though I was very tempted!

That is a big markup. They can be had around here for $300-$320 most of the time. I paid $299. I'll bet if you offered the LGS $300 that they would take it.
