Not sure. I don't really feel like I need a take down. What do you think?

If you own a take down 10/22 what made you buy it?

Is the takedown suppressor ready?  If not, why own it?

I love the idea off the takedown,I have two.   Great gun, super fun

BUT

Both mine are soooooooooooooo damn picky about hold.

They are a lot less accurate than the normal gun.

I even have the tactical solutions takedown kit, still not real accurate.

The barrel basically sticks in the receiver and you support the gun off the barrel, so it's very hold sensitive.

I'd get a normal one, then maybe Takedown later

Standard. The fit and finish is better on the older ones,maybe a used one at the funshow.

I just bought a tactical solution x ring 10/22. Think I got a good deal for what it is and with the scope.

I sold my takedown for exactly that reason.
10/22's are reasonably accurate, but by no means a tack driver, so owning one that is more finicky when it comes to accuracy just to be able to break it in half and stick it in a backpack isn't worth it to me.
It's not like it's some YUGE bulky gun that is a pain in the ass to tote in the woods or get in and out of a car.
Non takedown gets my vote

I went the takedown route.

I wanted a squirrel hunting rifle that I could easily fit inside a pack or strap to the outside. This is very convenient and it's damn accurate. I bought a stock ruger receiver, tactical solutions barrel, KIDD trigger, bolt, comp, etc. It's awesome. Now I just need a can for it.

VnE, which picatinny rail is that? The weaver rail that came in the box with the gun doesn't have slots that are far apart enough to fit my QD aimpoint mount. I just got a takedown and I like it so far. I love guns that I can put into small bags. My intent is to go the Magpul backpack stock route.

The standard 10/22 Carbine is good for popping soda cans and groups that you do not want to write home about.
If you want a 22 you want accuracy and that means the 10/22 Target rifle. It is one of the most accurate guns I have ever owned.

No joke, both.  The takedown is not as accurate

I had the same problem as you. I recommend the KIDD rail. Costs $33.

I like my takedown.  Easy fit behind the seat of the truck so I am always ready for a little squirrel hunting during season.

Mine returns to zero and is more than accurate enough for head shots on squirrels to 25 or 30 yards.

If you are going to put a big scope on it and try to shoot small groups, you might want to the standard version.

My standard one has a carbon fiber tension barrel.
My take down has a tacsol xring and a backpacker stock. Also whenever my can gets our of jail it'll go on.

In typical AR15.com fashion, I have both.  

Granted, I received the takedown from someone who owed me money.  He owed me $250, and it had all kinds of Tactical Solutions stuff on it, so I figured I came out ahead on that one.

I've had a 'regular' 10-22 forever. But I saw a takedown Lite the other day and fell in love. It's all I can think about now. Well, that and boobies.

Seriously consider assembling the exact 10/22 you want from individually bought components. It's just like AR's (only a helluva lot easier) that if you buy a complete rifle then start upgrading and replacing parts then you'll just end up wasting money and have a box full of nearly worthless parts at the end.

Charger takedown + stamp + suppressor = win.

The WalMart 20 minutes from me has the standard, blued finish, walnut stock model for $209. I take it that's a good price? I've been looking to get my first .22, but have been leaning toward a MkII FV-SR.

For the basic stock model that's pretty typical.

I wanted the takedown lite as well until I saw the tactical solutions in the gun shop for just a bit more with a vortex crossfire. Very comparable weight wise to me.

I have both, but have fired neither of them (I'm more of a collector/enthusiast/hoarder than a shooter), so take this as a question. I remembered when I assembled my takedown the first time the barrel fit seemed a bit loose. I followed the instructions for adjusting the nut and the result still wasn't that good. I ended up going way past and then loosening until I could get the barrel to fit into the receiver and it feels every bit as tight as if it weren't a takedown model.

The notion of supporting it by the barrel makes me think the fit was as prescribed by the instructions, which resulted in a looser fit for me.

There are fewer aftermarket parts for the takedown. It seems to be tougher to put together an accurate takedown, but the regular carbine can be easily upgraded with a more accurate barrel.

The people who complain about the accuracy of the takedown model have never read the manual, specifically the note after step 7.

Get a regular model, put one of Clint Beyer's barrels on it. You'll thank me later...

I bought one of the USA Shooting team limited run take downs.  It has never been out of the box. One of these days I will get around to trying it out.  My preference for constant use would be the regular rifle.
