For Fathers day, I want to pick up a 10/22 for my dad. I'm sure the local shop has one, but I want to make sure I don't get screwed. I'll pay a touch more for the convenience of picking it up locally nice and easy, but I want to make sure it's within reason, you know?

He's borrowing my brother in law's Western Field somthing-or-another semiauto .22 for critter control, and it's a POS jamomatic. Besides, he needs his own. I figured I'd pick up a 10/22, a brick of ammo, cleaning supplies and maybe a couple extra magazines. As an added bonus, I'd like to present it to him over at my grandfather's place tomorrow (we're doing a BBQ over there), since most of those in attendance are a bit anti-gun.

Dad and I like to stir shit up, now and then.

Don't forget the 30-rounders then!


Speaking of which, who makes reliable 30 rounders?

I guess I should have thought of this earlier, because nobody seems to have any in stock.
Link Posted: 6/16/2007 8:54:04 AM EST
I got the stainless barrel with the Walnut stock.

Dont remember how much, but I believe it was a little over $200.

Very easy on the eyes though...

Can a scope be added to all of the 10/22 models?

Whatever Wal Mart sells them for.

They sell for the same price most dealers buy at.
Link Posted: 6/16/2007 9:00:12 AM EST
They are drilled and tapped for a scope rail.

Yes, WalMart is probably your best bet.

I haven't been in a WalMart yet that sells firearms that didn't have at least one 10/22 in the display case.
Link Posted: 6/16/2007 9:07:38 AM EST
Well, my Wal Mart doesn't sell guns anymore (nobody ever bought any there).

I found a place 30 minutes north of me in Michigan that has a mess of them in stock. They seem like a kick ass place regardless, so I'll drive up and have a looksie. If I don't leave with a 10/22 for Dad, I'll at least bring something home for ME.

Michigan as in 'out-of-state'?

I don't think they can sell it to you if so. ETA: They would have to send it to an in-state dealer to transfer it to you, I believe.

Remember to pick up a scope rail/mount while you're at the shop.

Oh yeah, and +1 on the steel lip BC mags.
Link Posted: 6/16/2007 9:17:12 AM EST
My Wal Mart and Bi Mart both sell the basic 10/22 for $137 all day long.

A rifle to a bordering state shouldn't be a problem.


Really?

That is some 'good-to-know' info.

most states allow purchases from most other states with long gun purchases
my friend came to visit me in michigan from new jersey and bought a ar15 legally from an ffl; pistols are the no no

Bi-Mart is the place to got. I got my stainless there for 139.00. Then I picked up the 25 rounders for 12.95 each. Go to Bi-Mart if you can.
Link Posted: 6/17/2007 6:50:15 PM EST
Well, I picked up a used one (forget the exact model, but it was one of the better ones) for $200 (came with two Ruger mags). It had a Weaver rail on it already, so I picked up some scope rings and a cheap (~$90) Bushnell 4x scope. To set dad up right, I also picked up cleaning goodies - Dewey rod, jag, patches, Hoppes, FP-10 (I love that stuff), brush, etc. I also picked up 500 rounds of blasting ammo, and a Butler Creek 25rd mag. I spent the afternoon sighting it in for him, then I cleaned it up and gave it to him.

I spent more than I wanted to ($400 in total), but his sincere appreciation and joy made it all worth it. I wish I could have bought him even more. He's the greatest.

I can tell he's proud of me, and it was an honor to be able to buy it for him. And I must have done a good job sighting it in for him, because he was bouncing pop cans all over the yard. He said "I didn't know I could shoot that well. THANKS!!!"

Oh, my mom talked me out of presenting it at the BBQ. I opted instead to give it to him personally late yesterday afternoon, and in hindsight - funny as it would have been - this really was the best way to go. There was enough conflict as it was today.

Women are often the voice of reason, aren't they?

Looking back on it, it was much more meaningful to give it to him when it was just him and me.
Link Posted: 6/17/2007 7:08:37 PM EST
Damn they have gone up a considerable amount, I bought mine about 3 years ago for less than $100 NIB.
Link Posted: 6/17/2007 7:22:21 PM EST
I was thinking about getting one for plinking. I think the local dealer wants $170 before taxes and dros fees. Are they accurate with iron sights or should I get a scope for it?
Link Posted: 6/18/2007 3:21:01 AM EST
Link Posted: 6/18/2007 7:51:17 AM EST
They are in the $200 range here. Buy a Marlin instead for $80 less and have a more accurate rifle with a better stock and sights.
Link Posted: 6/18/2007 8:56:41 AM EST

I really like the looks of the tech sights. I do wish they would make the rear sight with a section of picatinny rail in front of the rear sight.
