    Shoot... I haven't seen a 10/22 in weeks. Last time was at a show a month ago (Rochester, NY) and a Mannlicher-stocked model was up around $700+. A Takedown was at $500-600.

    My buddy bought a Mannlicher-style last summer for $350. I paid $380 for my TD last June/July. And my original Carbine was got in a trade a couple years back for a Waffenamt Walther P-38 (that I paid $200 for). Under new NYS laws, I'd have to do a background check on my FATHER to do that trade. WTF?

    I'd love to get my hands on another TD for my daughter. But at these prices, she may be just looking forward to inheiriting one of mine.

    Back before thanksgiving I found a gander mountain in east Texas that had just received 8 10/22bd's. I bought 2 of them for 250 a piece. Since then sources in central and eastern Texas have pretty much dried up.

    They are starting to trickle back into the sporting good stores here in Indiana. I don't know why people are crazy enough to thing the government is going to ban the 10/22. These same people are going to hate that they wasted there money on a rifle you can buy for 229.00 if they had only waited. And yes I saw one in the store for that yesterday.

    My 10/22 has a suppressor, pistol grip, collapsible stock and 25 round mag - must be an assault rifle!

    Should have kept mine But I traded for a 452 cz super 2500 BRNO .

    Then I modified a Rem 700 VSSF 22-250 stock to work with it . Shoots sweet as honey. Mounted a 8/ 24 scope and lightened thr trigger with a new spring. I did a good deal on the trade. But have always wanted another 10-22. Gonna put that on top of my list for the summer. I want to build a Bull pup. laser and red dot setup.

    Wait to the middle year and this hysteria sparked by President Obama will likely subside for 10/22s. The semi-auto "assault" rifles will likely remain hard to find and will be expensive for a long time. I may not have every gun that I want, but I have every gun that I absolutely need and took care of that some time ago.

    Things should go back to normal, the market is in short supply and it is a sellers market. things should recover in 4 months to a year or so. i know most of the companies that make AR parts will not take any new orders for the next 12 months. That being said people have order a lot of Merch that they have to sell once they get it.
    In the mean time contact your state and federal representatives and tell them what is on your mind!

    I bought a 10/22 TD model last December at a Michigan gun show for $319 (not a great price....but all thing considered, not too bad). Went to the gun show in January. The same vendor had the EXACT same 10/22 for sale - now at $459.

    Hi everyone, this is my first post, after my earlier introduction.

    I have a pretty nice, old, basic 10/22 that I liked taking to the range. I got the higher capacity mags BX-25 and found out that it didn't like those.
    I had a chance to get a new one at a local gun show and paid $205 + tax. The guy standing next to me offered me $20 if I would let him have it or take a different gun. I said "thanks, but I'll pass on your offer".

    After purchasing, i walked around and talked to some of the vendors. One was a rifle vendor. I showed him the gun. I asked him "if you had this gun, how much would it go for?"
    His reply "$375"
    That made me feel better. He had tables covered with rifles, a fair amount of new stock and tons of other stuff, not a new seller.

    The 10/22 looks to be a carbine, same length as my 10/22 which is marked carbine. This one is not marked.
    It has a plastic trigger group, not metal, also the butt plate is plastic, not metal. Upon careful inspection i noticed a few defects in the finish, failure to sand, too heavy application of stain and varnish.

    Then when I cleaned the gun I noticed the patches kept coming out black.

    Let me hear your input on proper cleaning.

    My understanding was that you should use hoppes solvent or some other solvent, I also use M-Pro7 and CLP, followed by dry patches with a jag. After cleaning i wet a patch with gun oil and run it through the barrel a few times.

    I soon came to realize that this gun had been shot a lot.

    I used the wire brush wetted with solvent and went up and down the barrel about 10-15 times, followed by 6-10 dry cotton patches.

    I did that 7 times and the patches still came out black!

    My shootin' buddy says i should check with ruger to see if the gun is already registered. Maybe the vendor is selling a used gun as new. Is that possible?

    Hoppes 9 or your favorite solvent, run a sopping wet patch thru the barrel and let it soak for 10 to 15 minutes. Then dip brush in solvent and run thru barrel 4 to 5 times. Run dry patches thru it. Repeat as many times as necessary. Mine doesn’t get that dirty after several hundred rounds over a few weeks of time with no cleaning in between.

    I feel lucky that I found a rust bucket at the LGS for $149 about 5 years ago. A little steel wool, and it went from looking like about a 4 to a 9. All I’ve done to it is put a sling on it and shoot it. You could offer me $800 for it, but I wouldn’t even consider it.
