    Went looking for a Ruger 10/22. only had 2, one slightly shorter than the other. shorter one was the standard wood stock 10/22, the slightly longer one had a composite stock and was $10 cheaper. any real differences between the two?

    took a few pics while there. didnt see anything special, just your typical small town gun show. tons of AR's though :naughty:

    first 2 AR's that caught my eye
    [​IMG]

    next pretty nice AR

    and some of the stuff i got:
    non-magnified ACOG knock-off. i like it a lot!
    [​IMG]


    bunch of beef and buffalo jerky. YUM!!
    and the mag thats in the gun. i guess its a magpul knock-off. its not too shabby, ill let you know how it works next time i go to the range.

    here's a few more of my AR
    [​IMG]

    CAA modular grip

    CAA stock

    battery storage in the stock.

    and that's all.

    thanks for reading! :wavey:

    1) if you want to get a 10/22, get the cheapest one you can find. you'll probably end up replacing a lot of it later on.
    2) nice jerkey
    3) meh acog clone
    4) caa sucks
    5) ???
    6) profit

    That mag looks to me like Thermold, which is Canadian and not a Magpul ripoff, it's 20 years old.
