    thinkin about picking up a blued 10/22-target model for 290 plus mount, rings, scope. i have a 597 now, but it's just not accurate enough. anybody have experience w/ these? i've heard they are very accurate. thanks.

    If you're not gonna build a 10/22, a 10/22T is a good choice. I made the mistake of selling mine off a long time ago and have a pocket 10/22 planned out now which I may try to pick up another 10/22T for that project :dunno:

    I have a regular 10/22 and I think it works pretty well. They aren't too expensive to start doing modifications to and most you can do yourself.

    What's the difference with the target model?

    The only other 10/22 I really remember looking at was some bull barrel one they sold but it was well over $300 if I remember correctly.

    i was gonna buy a regular 10/22 for 139, and then fix it up, but i figured it'd cost me a lot more, and to just buy a 10/22T and have a real accurate gun. so yours was pretty accurate? do you know what kinda groups you made at 25-50yards?

    yea, you were probably looking at the 10/22T. it has a laminate stock, no sights, and a bull barrel that looks like it's been twisted. it also has better internal parts, and a better chamber. walmart has the blued 10/22T for 290, and the stainless for 325

    I had done the dollar bill mod (or whatever they call it) to the stock to free float the barrel and after that I could get hit a quarter consistently at 50 yards with some nice match ammo. Head over to Rimfire central and check it out, a bunch of nice guys to help ya out.
