I bought a stainless/synthetic one a while ago and I really love it. Accurate, I think I have had 4 or 5 jams with cheap bulk ammo.

My biggest beef with it, is the weight of the trigger pull. That is the most ridiculous thing I have pulled back. I know I can get a kit up here( I forget the name of it now) that will lighten the trigger weight considerably. About $80.00 Canadian.

Other than that though, a good little gun and I do like it.

they are a great little gun. there are more accessaries for this gun that any other gun on the market. chuck403 is right about the factory trigger but there are many choices to fix this. the trigger group pops right out making them very easy to work on. mine has a 2 pound pull now and with a custom fit plunger. this makes the trigger pull very short and easy. about all you do is just wiggle the trigger no more full pulls to fire and boy does this speed up the cycle rate. go to ebay to see all the extras. they have a full section on these. ps check wal-mart they have some good prices on these.

I agree with everyone. I also shoot rimfire bullets. I noticed the cheap lead-tip ones are the ones that will jam quite a bit. I usually use hollowpoint rounds especially when going after rabbits.

I also have the stainless/synthetic Ruger and I really like it myself. My only complaint is how often it jams, but it also depends on the quality of my ammo I guess.

What scope (if any) do you all have on your .10-.22s? I'm looking for something inexpensive and sturdy. Thanks!

My brother had a 10/22 black/wood that made me decide to get one after he sold his. Ive also shot several others, and a few stainless models. The triggers have NEVER been a problem. There not light but by no means heavy, guess there inbetween. I belive you can get a timney trigger for the 10-22. there are TONS of accessories for the ruger 10/22 and is bye far my favorite auto loading 22.

hay idredneckgirl about the only things that jam them up is a cheap or worn out mag, a dirty gun and last i would look at your ammo. i just use cheap round nose ammo federal works great. a little dirt or powder behind your extractor really screws things up. it is easy to shoot hundreds of rounds so it is a must to keep them clean.

I have one it started out a standard but I bought a factory synthentic for 20 buck on gun broker. I have aimpoint red-dot on it. It it the fox/limb rat killing machine. But I have to say the triggers suck. Mine has has thousands of rounds put through it. No problems jamming I love the red dot. Only way to go.
