Hi all, new to the gun scene, and very glad to have found this bbs. Checked all of the old msgs in the 10/22 forum, and didn't see this. Does anyone know the differences between the AMT 25/22 and the Ruger 10/22? Not much info on the web, other than the fact that the 25/22 is a copy of the 10/22, and AMT is out of business. I just picked up a stainless 25/22 configured with a tapered barrel and a Butler Creek folding stock, and the only visible difference I noticed was an extended mag release. No idea what was "factory", and I have no experience with a 10/22 for comparison.
