First look at the "Appleseed 10/22" Ruger put out at SHOT.  

Basically a 10/22 set up for CMP-style smallbore shooting.  Modular stock from the Ruger American, built in aperture sights (plus rail), stainless, extended mag release, threaded for flash hider or suppressor.

My big question -- did they put a target hammer and sear in there?  If so, it will be awesome to have a 10/22 ready to go off the shelf.  The target hammer isn't 100% mandatory but it sure does make a significant difference.

Despite having plenty of .22s in the safe, Kind of Want!

Not a big fan of the stock but the rest of the rifle looks good.

Good. I was just thinking about selling my other 10/22s for the LTR

Now I can get this one

Why the flash hider on a .22?

I wonder if Ruger has figured out what's the proper length on a threaded .22 yet?

It's really just a fancy thread protector for the suppressor.

Aperture sights are a big win.  There a bunch of bolt guns I would be more likely to buy if the had aperture sights. I will probably get one of these instead of buying tech sights for my marlin 760

At least they got shed of that shitty concave butt plate stock.

It looks amazing.  Too bad it's considered an Assault Weapon in NY.  FUAC

This is good, good news.






Big for Appleseed.  Which by the way, if you've never shot an Appleseed- you're missing out.

Looks like it is little more than a barrel thread protector

Edit- yeah, what all them said

Also it makes for a "mudguard". When getting into position shooting a lot of new shooters accidentally bonk the muzzle into the dirt. That and the Suppressor reason.

Appleseed isn't a 'target' activity.  It's basic marksmanship training.  Why would they put a target hammer and sear into such a rifle?
Link Posted: 1/17/2014 5:57:24 AM EDT
Good job, Ruger.  Good job, Appleseed.

Have you shot an appleseed?

I remember the contest to vote on which new model ruger was gonna do.

wasn't this appleseed one came up with by an arfcommer?
Link Posted: 1/17/2014 5:59:22 AM EDT
Yea, it looks like a nice piece... tho it'd have to be sold without the threaded barrel in NY.

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.
Link Posted: 1/17/2014 6:01:10 AM EDT
Or you can find another use for oil filters...

My Ruger Mark III Pistol came with a flash hider mounted and a thread protector in the box. The FH seems really stupid on a .22LR pistol.

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

That looks an awful lot like the thread protector/flash hider that Ruger used on the SR22....

To participate?  Certainly not.  




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




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

All you really need for a decent trigger on the 10/22 is something like a Volquartsen hammer. I put one in my "Appleseed" rifle (an older 10/22 Deluxe with Tech Sights and USGI sling) and it made a world of difference. Much crisper and more predictable break. It's a $30 part and takes 15 minutes to swap in.
Link Posted: 1/17/2014 6:19:35 AM EDT
If it was offered with a walnut stock and blue steel I would be on it like a tick on a June bug.

They need to supply it with a canvas web sling  case that unzips into a shooting mat
Link Posted: 1/17/2014 6:23:01 AM EDT
I remember when they had the vote. This was one of my favorite concepts.

I didn't say there was a downside.  Just that it's not a prerequisite to participating in, and getting something good out of, Appleseed.

Because the factory 10/22 trigger sucks.    It's not necessary, but if they can make it better why not?  You can make the trigger smoother and less creepy while still having enough pull weight to be safe for beginning shooters.
 
Link Posted: 1/17/2014 6:27:52 AM EDT
I'll take one.  Then throw a Kidd trigger in it and put my Sparrow on.  
Link Posted: 1/17/2014 6:29:43 AM EDT
I would buy that rifle in a second.

That would save me so much time and money not having to mod a 10/22 aftermarket it's not even funny.

I put tech sights on my 10/22 for my someday appleseed shoot.  Good job Ruger.  

Only complaint is that I hate the Mini 14 birdcage.  I wish they'd just shitcan it already.

Ruger is helping break barriers here.

Nice job.

Definitely presents a predicament for me haha.  I was going to buy the takedown tactical or whatever it's called with the threaded barrel.  But this thing really pretty sweet.  Hmm...

Also, in before someone says "buy both"
