Pros:
The design, the rotary mag & the bx-25 mag are awesome reliable....with adequate ammo.
Easy to break down & clean.
A gazillion aftermarket upgrades to customize to suit your fancy.
Accurate for even a novice.
Light in weight, but very durable.
Ruger customer service is +1.

Cons:
The stock mag release, bolt lock and trigger are tedious .....
An upgrade to a complete Timney trigger is awesome but costs nearly the price of the rifle.
The stock sights are just adequate...

I 've had mine for a few weeks and a couple range trips....very pleased....I'm sure others can offer some comparisons to similar rifles....didn't do that myself....I usually do...but for the price and reputation of the product...I didn't hesitate.

Like Reagan said , IMO best .22 semi auto out there.

Upgrade bolt and mag release for about $30-$40 ,you will be happy.

Moved thread to 10-22 subforum

You won't regret purchasing a 10/22. Ruger stands behind their products better than any company I know, and the 10/22 is an extremely reliable and dependable rifle. Your bigger dilemma will be finding some ammunition for it.

As far as 22LR......AmmoFast.com has a reliable supply...but the shipping is what kills.......locally, WM, nada

There are no cons on a 10/22. Ease of use, ease of modifying, and ease of finding parts.

I can't think of a better all around first rifle. They are endlessly upgradable and customizable. Very reliable and easy to work on. Inexpensive as are most of the parts (except custom triggers which I wouldn't suggest until you've got alot of lead downrange and you decide to build a precision tack driver).

I just suggested to my older daughter, the Ruger American .22 for my grand daughter ( prefer bolt over semi-auto ).

I'm not a fan of plating on a weapon. my theory is micro cracks allow moisture / contaminants to enter undetected and can cause major damage before it IS discovered.
whereas "Bluing" or stainless the surface is reflective of the interior.

Pros; Compact, easy to use, accurate. Fun for new shooters as you can easily hit what you're aiming at. Ammo is cheap. Original cost of 10-22 is relatively low.

Cons; Semi-auto,stock may be too short. For safety a semi-auto isn't the best way to learn to shoot and concentration is needed to remember there is another round in the chamber. Many use the 10-22 as a single shot until safe gun handling is learned. On my 10-22 carbine the stock is way too short and I have to scrunch up to see the sights. Not a big deal with smaller folks.

Im also dislike single shot for a similar reason,--- the gun is always loaded, if it goes bang there is still a bullet in the gun.
I really like a bolt action as it takes a definitive motion and to a novice complex motion to chamber the next round giving the supervising person time to react in case of an unsafe situation.
