Default Ruger 10/22 or 10/22 Takedown



Advertise Here

Howdy --

I'm looking at getting a 10/22. I have been wondering about getting the takedown instead.

In general, I don't hike, hunt, or have any practical need to take the 10/22 takedown anywhere in "regular, pre-SHTF life."

If I get a standard 10/22 model, will I regret not getting the take-down? If I get the take-down, will I regret not getting the standard?

Im looking at getting a takedown model. Already have a regular 10/22 but looking at one for tha compactness of the package.

If I was going to buy a new Ruger 10/22 it would be the new take down model.

The ability to carry it discreetly is what interests me.

I have a Carbine 10/22 and it's great, but that take down model is calling my name.

If you don't already have one, I would vote the takedown for sure. Better bang for your buck.

For an extra $100? Stick to the standard model.

It has less parts, less to go wrong in extremes and there have only been minor changes in 50+ years of production until this model.

You know the old stand by: "Have it and not need it, rather than need it and not have it."


If ever there was a day you needed the 10/22 to break in half...


And by all reports (and my experience as well) the TD performs just as good as the regular.

No brainer

I have one.



Its more accurate then my shooting.

It seems reliable, I have not put a ton of rounds through it, but it's good so far.

I LOVE mine. (Its actually becoming my Sister's shtf rifle because of its simplicity and weight)



...and A LOT of the members here already have one.

I telling you, a Ruger sr22 with aimpoint comp3 and x3 mag sitting on larue tactical mounts will be the last 22 rifle you buy.

I will never, in my entire life, be willing to drop $1500+ on a .22 rifle

Yes, very accurate and well made, just as reliable as any other 10/22. It is my go to 22 now, no more endorsment needed. I can break it down and carry in it's bag and no one is the wiser, spare me the tacticool ar BS.

I went with the 10/22 all weather model.
I am happy with its fit and function.

As far as the normal 10/22 vs the take down I think it boils down to two things:

1) Will you actually make use of the take down feature for storage, transport, bug out bag, etc? If you don't think so then just get the standard 10/22. If you think there is a possibility that someday you could make use of the take down feature then you need to get it now as you can't exactly add it later.

2) Are you ever going to want to change the barrel out for a nicer aftermarket barrel? If you're going to rock the factory Ruger barrel from now till forever then I might drop the extra coin on the take-down. However if you think you might want to upgrade, to say a KIDD barrel for example, then the take down obviously doesn't make any sense.

Yeah, until you realize that you should have bought the M&P 15-22 instead.

80% of the time at the range I use 22s so I put my money with what I like to shoot.
