    the 10/22 will cost about $30 more new from walmart. i may stop in some local pawn shops and see if they have any used


    i was thinking last night if i'm going to put $150 or so into a ciener kit i might as well buy a dedicated .22 rifle

    what do you think?

    QFT. I bought a plain jane $150 10/22, and within 2 months it was a $600 squirrel sniping machine. And resale sucks, I sold it to Dsking85 for $425 or $450 a few months after I finished it.

    I think a 10/22 is going to be the next gun I pickup. That or a mossy 500. Maybe I'll just get them both at the same time :cool:

    Do you want cheap practice in what might be your home defense gun, or do you just want to horse around with a .22?

    i'm dead on with my ar at 100 yards, but it wouldnt be my home defense gun b/c my place is too smal to maneuver around with it, and i'd be afraid the round would go through the wall into someone else's place. i'd use my glock. i'd like to shoot my ar more b/c its a fun gun, but the 10/22 is too. mainly it'd just be plinking though

    Any round from a glock is going to go through just as many walls as the ar round, maybe more, the maneuvering point is quite fair thuogh. For just plinking I'd be tempted to have another guns. Less crap to get into your ar, a gun for a buddy at the range, etc

    wouldnt a 9mm hollow point stop much before a fmj going at about twice the speed?

    I still vote to get a dedicated .22 and the 10/22 will do that job and do it well. Plus they are cheap as shit and have an infinite amount of upgrades.

    I want to get a 10/22 put a scope and a bipod on it then spray it camo and just go plinking.

    Get the stainless walmart special. Nicer stock and longer barrel. Plus you can sell the parts for more when you inevitably take it apart :mamoru:

    hard question.

    I have a 10/22 and a marlin model 60.

    The 10/22 I purchased as a project gun. I made it sweet. Bolt buffer, trigger, sear, chims, barrel, stock, magazine, take down screws....... I made a really nice gun. I will never get what I have in it out, but It is a pleasure to take to the range.

    The marlin model 60 outshot the stock 10/22 in every way. I have had it a number of years and it is a regular part of my camping gear. It is just so light weight and easy to use, I prefer it to the now tricked out 10/22 I have.

    No. First, most HP ammo is going to be hotter than ball. Second, HP's work on hydraulics, drywall isn't a liquid, therefore it plugs the bullet turning it into ball. Studies show 9mm (at least from a carbine barrel) is much more likely to over penetrate than .223.

    10/22's are addicting. you end up buyin a plinker for 200 bucks , next thing you know you end up spending 700 dollars on somethin you could use as a sniper rifle.

    i would really lean towards getting a ciener kit if i was outside of CA. as it is, if you have a rimfire rifle evil features (pistol grip, detachable mag, flash hider, etc) dont matter. but as soon as you take the kit out, its back to a .223 and you (potentially) have a centerfire rifle with a detach mag and any 1 of the features :sad2: the law is really gray, and its not the first time

    Also the primary wounding mechanism of 5.56 fmj rounds is fragmentation, when the round bleeds off velocity from passing through barriers, its wound creation potential becomes far less. They also seem to deviate more from the original path of the bullet and have a tendecy to keyhole and tumble more toward lower areas.

    Anyway thats irrelevant to the discussion, get a seperate rifle. Maybe a bolt even, alot of people love their cz's
