A Good Deal?

Been looking for a good run-of-the-mill 10/22 as a starting point for a new build (finally got my Mini just about right...). I mean the most basic of basic rifles -- blued carbine, no stock preference. Here's how the prices are breaking down...

Wal-Mart: $224 (Blued/Wood)
Academy: $198 (Blued/Wood)

Stopped by the LGS today and mentioned I wanted a bare-bones 10/22. He's got a slightly used Blued/Wood carbine with 10-rounder and one BX-25 for $199 cash. When I say slightly used, I mean just that. Handling marks on the stock, action is clean inside, bore is shiny. In fact, this one isn't even that old -- it's got the Tupperware barrel band and trigger group with factory extended mag release.

I thought about offering him his asking price if he'll throw in another 10-rounder. What say the knowledgeable folks at PU? Thanks in advance, fellas.

What matters is if it's worth that to YOU. Myself, any used one I find needs to be at $175 at the most and usually will be more in the $150-165 range to come home. I'd certainly hope any used one would come with at least one 10 round mag. This one you mention with the 25 rnd one...figure maybe $15-20 for that so the gun itself is down around $185 or so. Extra mags don't do anything for me (a LOT of extras already) but if the dealer tossing in another is a biggie for you, make the offer.

before i pulled the trigger on anything, i would check on armslist for a few days & seewhat pops up on there in your locality. maybe even post a "looking for" ad on there (thats what i did). it took about a week of checking on there before i found my deal.had a guy offer up what ended up being one of the lipseys stainless sporters with the 22" barrel with a 4x32 scope for $200. theres a standard blue/wood carbine with a 3-9x40 scope on there now for $180.

Since this is on the same subject, I'm looking for a 10/22 to start working on marksmanship, do at appleseed, etc. But I would also like to have some residual use of the gun. That's why I'm thinking about the takedown model, and maybe tricking it out. Could I get any advice, like trigger packs or railing or anything?

Standard 10/22 carbines are selling brand new for $200 here in Ohio at one shop, but most are in the $240 range. Sounds like you found a good deal. It really depends what you're planning to do with it. I didn't think I was the type to replace virtually everything on the gun, but I'm darn near that on my latest build. Trigger group is original, but was pulled out for some rework. That's it though, new stock, barrel, sights, charging handle, mag release. On the "new" 1965 walnut stock I stripped off the original finish and refinished it M14 style, then added sling swivels and top and bottom rails. Fun project.

I ended up receiving a 10/22 as a gift this Christmas, so I got a smokin' deal!

I hadn't planned on replacing everything on this rifle, but the more looking I do, the more I think, "You know, that wouldn't be a bad idea..." It's gonna be done a little at a time, though -- more of a "project," rather than a "build."
