The 10/22 is an awesome little rifle. I bought mine 10 years ago and it's still going strong. The only problem I had was with the original magazine which wore out after MUCH use. The rifle started to jam all the time, and when a thorough cleaning didn't help I decided to get a new magazine to try. I'd been wanting a second mag for awhile anyway. But it turned out that that was the cause. It now functions very well. Mine prefers high velocity copper plated bullets to plain lead, but will feed lead OK. I use Winchester Super-X HV loads and it cycles them great. Very accurate too. It'll also shoot CCI Stingers really well too, which is what I use for tree rats.

As for assessories and upgrades, if you want a custom rifle and don't want to pay $2000 or more, the 10/22 is the way to go. There are dozens of companies making upgrades and aftermarket parts to replace/enhance every part of the 10/22 from the stock on up. About the only thing you'll need to buy from Ruger is the reciever, every other part can be bought from another company. And the real beauty of the 10/22 is that 99% of the upgrades and custom parts are drop in components that you can easily replace yourself, no gunsmithing required. You can spend 5 minutes replacing the stock and installing a match grade barrel, and another 30 minutes replacing the trigger group parts and you'll have a sweet shooting custom rifle.

But if you're not into that stuff, the standard 10/22 carbine is great in its stock form too. It also makes a great training rifle for kids too because if its small size and short length.

Mine was a jamming machine until I sent it back to the factory. They fixed it and it seems to work good now but I can only get 2" groups at 30 yards with it. I tried 4 different types of shells with no luck. And thats off of sand bags. I put in a bunch of after market triger accessories for it too. Oh well I cant shoot anything with it in pa anyhow!

I have just recently aquired a new 10/22 its the 40th anniversary edition it comes with a clear clip and it is a dream to shoot. i put a fixed power 4x scope on it and i can just sit there and hit dimes at 50 yards all day with CCI Stingers. I got it 1 week before the squirrel season ended here in florida and took it hunting a.s.a.p. but that morning i did not see any squirrels just a medium hog. i had 1 jam so far from a damaged shell that I put in the clip wrong it was not the guns fault. and at 50 yards with open sites i have exceptional accuracy. better than any bolt action ive shot
