    This is just a factory Ruger 10 / 22 outfitted with a Simmons 4x .22 Scope nothing more than an aftermarket 25 round magazine. You don't have to modify the Ruger 10 /22 to have fun shooting Targets or Game with it shoots well enough like it is from the factory. At 50 ' yards, it groups within 1" inch at 100 yards within 2 " with a cheap Simmons 4x 32 mm rimfire .22 scope. You don't need to spend a bunch of money to get your Ruger 10 / 22 to shoot well. this scope cost $31.74 at Walmart. You don't need to spend $200.00 on a scope for a .22 rifle you will be shooting no more than 100 yards with punching holes in paper or tin cans, iron targets when the cheap scope and factory 10 /22 will do.

It comes complete with a set of rimfire rings to get you up and mounted in no time. High-quality optical glass and fully coated optics deliver bright, sharp images.

    You can have just as much fun as the guys who have 4 grand in their Ruger 10 / 22 Rifles with High Dollar Scopes, High Dollar Match custom Barrels, High Dollar Stocks, High Dollar match triggers. You don't need that to have quality fun with the Ruger 10 /22 Rifle."The Ruger 10/22 is a series of semi-automatic rifles produced by American firearm manufacturer Sturm, Ruger & Co., chambered for the .22 Long Rifle rimfire cartridge. It uses a patented 10-round rotary magazine, though higher capacity box magazines are also available. The standard Carbine version of the Ruger 10/22 has been in production continuously since 1964, making it one of the most successful rimfire rifle designs in history, with numerous third-party manufacturers making parts and accessories for upgrading and customization. In fact, the 10/22's aftermarket is so prolific, that a 10/22 can be built with completely non-Ruger made components." 56 years ago I was 12 yrs old I paid about $55.00 for my first Ruger 10 /22 and for 56 years I had fun with that old Ruger and it had an old 4x Tasco scope I paid 12 bucks for. I still have that old rifle and it still shoots well with a blue million rounds I put thru it. I own a few custom 10 / 22 rifles with the High Dollar aftermarket stuff on them but the Plain Factory Ruger 10 /22 Rifle I have just as much fun with it. So don't feel left out if you don't have all the custom stuff on your 10 / 22 rifle I enjoy them the same from Factory to customized ones I own. Heck, it's a .22 so it's much cheaper to shoot than my .308, .223, 6.5 Creedmore the same 4 Marksmanship fundamentals apply shooting the .22 accurately as the larger calibers. 1. Steady Position, 2. Sight Alignment, 3.Breath Control, 4. Trigger squeeze. if you use these 4 Fundamentals you will always be on Target.[​IMG]

    Almost every gun I own is fairly precise, I am just not very accurate ☹️.

    I always had good accuracy with my old 10/22.
    I wish I still had it, but it turned out not to be fire proof.

    I have a Lasermax. Just point it and shoot. Never miss unless the target is moving.

    Coming straight from the factory, the Ruger 10/22 was never meant to beat all challengers at Wimbledon. To challenge that statement is folly.
    These rifles have left Ruger in droves, and have proven themselves to be self sufficient in providing fun shooting and easy modification for those that know how. If you have a family that loves to get out camping and take your trusty Ruger factory 10/22 along to do plinking, and shooting safely at cans, you are indeed a happy camper.
    If you are a small game hunter, the Ruger 10/22 will provide many a squirrel, or cotton tail for the skillet, especially if you remove that dang "barrel band contraption" which most savvy owners know enough to do. And, don't even bother with adding a cheap $15.00 plastic stock, your Ruger as is, will provide all that you are looking for.

    who said 3 1/2" group ? 2" group at 100 yards out of the box from the factory is not bad . but who is going to shoot a squirrel at 100 yards ? Most Squirrels are shot at less than 50 yards and at 50 yards the group is 1" or less the squirrel noggin is about 2.75 " on most squirrels. But the average squirrel shot is 25 yards or less. The Point I was trying to make is the factory standard Ruger 10/22 Rifles accuracy out of the factory box is good for most Plinking & Hunting.

    Post some photos of this lasermax on your 10/22 and a few targets so we can see your shot groups.

    Right. And what proof do you have that those groups you shot were at 100 yards and not 15 feet?

    Many folks are quite happy with the accuracy of their bone stock 10/22's with or without an optic mounted, knowing full well that they shouldn't expect laser accuracy from the stock platform.

    ^^^^^^You're kidding! [​IMG]

    See Post #6 for a more knowledgeable and reasonable response. I realize that some really try hard to contribute, but being redundant makes one no better than a "mynah bird".

    Picked up a new base 10/22 this weekend. First .22lr in 5 years (sold my previous 2-one a 10/22-4 years ago to buy books when I restarted college), this is the base model grey with no iron sights. Mounted an old Bushnell Sportview off a lever action, then found a new but cheap never used leather sling in my box of parts after I took these pics.

    The Ruger has been around now for 57 years since 1964 it has always been a reliable and fairly accurate fire arm ,I've owned several of them and still my old 1964 mdl that has been passed down to my Grandson to enjoy . I have found the most accurate & fastest ammo in the 10/22 for hunting is the CCI Velocitor 40 grain copper plated Hollow Point .I have even taken Large & Medium sized Animals with it I've taken several Feral Hogs & Coyotes with it. The Hogs well over 300 & 400 Pounds were at 60 yards over bait piles and one shot to the head put them down. At approx. 100 yards I've taken coyotes with a body shot just behind his front shoulder and they dropped like stones. You don't need a high dollar optic if the cheap one will do the same for you at 50 to 100 yards .I seen some guys with high dollar optics on their 10/22 they customized with all sorts of after market gimmicks they fell for and still their shot groups at 50 & 100 yards are no better than the plain Jane ruger 10 /22 with a cheap optic . I do recommend the Ruger Drop in BX Trigger it helps a little with accuracy because of its 2.5 pound crisp break but I did good with the stock trigger at about 6 pounds .I have two Ruger 10 /22 's that sport night vision and they are both used at night to eradicate Hogs over bait & also Coyotes answering my call and responding to my decoy Wounded Rabbit .With the low recoil , low muzzle blast & it's accuracy make it easy to shoot accurately in total darkness when one Hog or Coyote is shot the others soon return because the .22lr blast is such a low report allowing for more targets to be taken even when shooting suppressed the others still scatter and run away . One night in the stand I took down a 300 pound Sow and 10 piglets unsuppressed with in one hours time as the piglets returned to the sow I picked them off one by one one sow and 10 piglets were taken to the Butcher and processed and the 425 Pounds of meat went to feed the needy .If I was using my AR-15 those piglets would have all run off even if it were suppressed never to return , with the .22 LR I don't have to worry about other farm animals in close proximity being hit by an exiting rounds of the Higher Powered caliber rifles, I sometimes use in my Feral Hog & Coyote Eradication Service. I hope you enjoy shooting & hunting with that Ruger 10/22 its has become one of the most popular most customized .22lr Rifles in the world even finding its way into the IDF & Special Operations Forces around the world. I even have a stock 10/22 with no optic other than iron sights in my pickup truck I use it to Dispatch Hogs or Coyotes caught in my live traps. It's in the Photo below Black Plastic stock with Iron Sights sitting on top of a Feral Hog I killed with it .

    I've seen Ruger's ad for these rifles in "Shooter" magazine. I don't think you'll miss the sights, or that dang barrel band either. Would like to read about how well it puts holes in paper.
