    I've been shooting for a few months now. I have a Glock 27 and a Ruger Sr22 pistol. Looking at getting a rifle. I don't hunt, so just looking for something to use at the range. The place I go to has a 100 yd and then a combined 200/300 yd range for rifles. This would be my first rifle. I've shot an AR-15 before but we can no longer buy them here in CT. Has anyone had any issues with the "takedown" portion of their 10/22? Or are the parts pretty reliable? Seems like it'd be easier to clean and maintain than the regular version. Especially since I'm new to this. Are the 200/300 yd ranges unrealistic with this type of rifle? I was hitting at 200 yds no problem with the AR, but that was a 223 vs a 22lr. Still deciding if I should go for the 10/22 now, or hold off a bit and get a Mini 14 instead. Thanks in advance for the pointers.

    Just got my 10/22 Carbine....haven't been to the range yet....ordered a Timney trigger for it just because the reviews were sooo great....cost 3/4 the price of the rifle....
    I hear ya with the take-down cleaning....has to be better than the fixed models.......
    I've been told it's great @ 50yds....even better @ 25yds...but don't know what to expect @ 100yds.
    Good luck!

    Thanks. If it's only going to get me to 25 or 50 yds, I'll prob just wait a bit and get a Mini 14. I can do 25 or 50 with my pistols.

    Well, ask around because like I said , I'm just telling you what I've been told......the 22LR is a lot cheeper and I also have a 223/556, so the $$$$ and ability for more range time was the biggest factor for me.

    I had a blast with my carbine in the 100-150 yard area. At 200+ yards the golden bullets were only going through the front side of a two liter full of water, but you could still tell you hit it. Might need a little 'Kentucky windage' out that far, but I'd say it will be a fun gun for your purpose. For now... Then you can get the Mini, just a little more wait. I'd get the takedown now. But I suck at waiting.

    Picked up the takedown today. Threaded barrel model. Cabelas had a real good price on it.

    22LR hasn't been very hard to find around here. I picked up 2 bulk boxes. One is 500 rds, paid $40. The other is 300 rds, paid $20. All hollow points.

    Also had a 400 or 500 rd box of lead round nose but they kept getting stuck in my SR22. Sold those.

    Just need to get it cleaned and take it to the range. Can't find any good cleaning videos for the takedown on YouTube. Anyone have one they can point me to?
