How come a 10/22 Takedown is between $75-100 more expensive than a standard 10/22?
Because it is more complicated. The takedown mechanism is an extremely precision component that allows the weapon to be taken down and then re-joined without losing zero. This is a big deal. The takedown mechanism has to be very well made to allow a weapon to hold a precise zero in this way. As an owner, I can vouch that it indeed is. It is worth the money IMO.

The machining alone would probably cost more than the gun if you were to have it done by a shop. So $75 to 100 extra is kind of a deal if you ask me.

Just the magic dust that they sprinkle on to make it accurate, JK.

Hardware and machining account for the difference. IMHO, it's worth the $'s. I only have 3 TD's.
