I'd rather have a M&P15-22.

I like the stock. If I could pick one up aftermarket, I'd slap on on my 10/22. I still want to get a threaded barrel and eventually a can to put on the end of it.

Looks like the first 10/22 I'll be buying, any timeline on availability?

And does it come in pink for my little girl?

Want.  Especially if they make a take down version.

I don't find the stock aesthetically pleasing, but I'm pragmatic enough to recognize functionality has a beauty all it's own. The only wood-stocked rifle I own is, ironically, a 10/22.

With the stainless steel, synthetic stock, sling studs, Picatinny top rail, threaded barrel, and better sights, I may look into one of these as a general pinker even without having taken an Appleseed class. I've considered doing much of that to my 10/22, but mine is still just a big box store cheapie at heart.

The last post in the archived thread sums it up perfectly:

Finally, a 10-22 that I actually want to own.  Not that I want to pony up the (nearly) $500 to get one.
Link Posted: 1/17/2014 7:32:38 AM EDT
My appleseed 10/22 was the sporter model.  It was one of the only models at the time I could find with sling swivels from the factory, and also comes with some really nice looking checkering.  A green sling made it lovely.

I wonder if the barrel is free-floating?

And after Appleseed, come out and try highpower rifle. The principles you learn at Appleseed will give you a big head start!

Start with a local reduced distance match and then when you shoot the full distance, you'll get great satisfaction with the rifleman's quarter mile at actual distance with a service rifle.

I would like to shoot an appleseed event, but the local club that runs them charges way too much for me at $80 for a weekend plus a non-member range fee of $10 per day. Is that normal? I shoot the 200/300/600 and 3x600 full distance matches one weekend a month and the match fees total $50 for the weekend.

Have you been to an Appleseed?

Means that the 10/22 might have a liveable trigger pull out of the box. IOW, you will not have to buy a Timney or Kidd, or at least not right away.

Red Falcon Bill is absolutely correct.

My wife and I teach at AS.  Some students with stock triggers literally exhaust their finger muscle and have to pull the trigger with two fingers on day two.  A $40-something Volquertson hammer makes a big difference.  There is a big difference between the shitty stock 10/22 trigger, and a milspec stock AR-15 or M1A trigger.

Think of it as a training course fee, not a competition match fee.

AS charges $40/day, with substantial discounts for kids that make it possible to bring the family, and many shoot bosses will offer a discount or free seat to someone who is financially struggling. Most NRA Basic Rifle instructors charge ~$100+ for a one day class.  A Front Sight membership for $250 comes out to $60/day for their four-day rifle class.  The Small Arms Firing School at Camp Perry is a better deal financially but honestly is not as good in many ways for the new shooter.  GunSite or Thunder Ranch or even a local carbine course will be way more than $40/day...  There is nothing else in the training/shooting world that comes close to the value at a typical AS.

AS isn't just for new shooters either.  While we do shoot some KD at every AS that has the facilities, wxperienced ones may get more out of a dedicated 100% known distance AS event.  We need the experienced CMP High Power guys to help as volunteers if they are interested in passing on what they know.

I am very happy that there is an "out of the box" rifle ready to go I can recommend to students.

If your Appleseed is like what is offered locally most of the instructional shooting will be done at 25m and can be done with .22. After a day of instruction you get to put your skills to work at long range. That's when you would want to break out the centerfire. But it's up to you, you can shoot centerfire for the whole weekend if you'd like.

Make an effort to sign up for the class. I took one last fall and can't say enough good about it.

Yes I have.  You don't need a target rifle to participate.


  To participate?  Certainly not.  



Does a better trigger make shooting better easier?  Of course.



There are no downsides to a "target" trigger in Appleseed.

Don't be silly.  Ruger has made several ban friendly guns for you guys.  I could care less about the flash hider but the threaded barrel saves a trip to the gunsmith for many of us.  Thanks Ruger!

If your standard carbine is a regular factory 10/22, than this one will have a better trigger and much, much better sights, so it should shoot better.

Very cool. It appears to the be the modular stock from the Ruger American Rimfire, adjustable for LOP - that was how it was proposed in the contest anyways.

Should that be the case this is a rifle a kid can learn marksmanship fundamentals on and grow into over the years, and setup with and without a scope. I'll probably end up getting one of these for the kids.
