    Fucking Cail and the 10 day waiting period. $278 at Big 5. The local shop had one for $200 but wanted a recent utility bill as further proof of residency.

    My son is going to be using it for practice for competition. It feels like a BB gun compared to my Mosin.

    Big 5 calls it the 1160. The Ruger site calls it the RR.

    Nice. Do you or your son plan on modding it at all?

    cool, whats so different about the 1160?


    Good luck with it, im sure if you didnt have plans on modding it, all you have to do is see one modded.

    oooh,
    i'd just get the extended mag release, maybe some volquartsen goodies, change the stock, and a nice scope or red dot (depending on plinking targets or varmints)

    WOOT WOOT CONGRATS.

    btw that price does seem crazy?!?!?

    The price does seem high, but I guess in cali they charge more. I bought my dad a ruger 10/22 for his birthday last week, the stainless model, for $214 at wal-mart.

    It comes with an extra mag and scope base. It also is an 40ty anniversiary edition with a coin or some shit stamped ino the butt plate. I know the price is high but the next nearest decent gun shop is about an hour away. That and I got the green light from the wife. I didn't want to chance her saying no a week from now waiting to get it cheaper.

    I'll toss a scope on it for him when he gets decent with the iron sights. Then when he upgrades I'll do some other things with it.

    Yeah, just off the bat (if your wife lets you lol) Id do the bolt buffer, auto bolt release and extended mag release. All cheap mods that make the 10/22 just a little better.
