    I bought a Ruger 10/22 and needed it's muzzle velocity to get its bullet trajectory from JBMBallistics. So I used CCI Mini Mag 40 grain and shot off ten of them with a MagnetoSpeed sensor attached to the barrel. The CCI package states the velocity is 1235 FPS. Below are my speeds out of the 18...

    Here i will chronicle the ongoing upgrades of my beloved Ruger 10/22 Carbine. I have other more expensive rifles including an AR-15, but none are more fun to pimp out than this little guy! I gave it it's name for an obvious reason after I FINALLY killed one of the groundhogs that had been...

    I'm looking to invest a little money into something. I've already invested several thousand dollars in silver, ammo, the usual. I feel guns are a great investment and edge against inflation. I noticed a Ruger 10/22 at my local Wal-Mart recently. I'm very surprised it is still there after a...

    I can't find it anywhere. I am not sure how you want to handle the transfer but I'm open to all possibilities. Dealers especially welcome. I am only going to transfer it to an Archangel Nomad/Marauder kit anyway. Looking for a toy to plink up an old truck on our property and have some fun.

    I am about to purchase a ruger 10/22 and convert it with an Archangel Marauder kit before congress takes up the ban process after the holiday - we all know it's coming. My question is two fold. (oh, I'm buying the carbine wood stock because I like the black barrel - not the takedown version)...

    Some kind of new disease has broke out, society has collapsed and no more trucks are rolling. Over the following weeks the power goes out, the water stops running, people stop driving their cars and trucks, friends, neighbors and strangers come around begging for food. The food preps are...

    I was recently approached by a co-worker who is having some financial problems. She is looking to sell a couple of guns that belonged to her husband and asked me if I would be interested. She has the following: Pre-ban Norico AK-47 with the side folding stock, 3 mags, bayonet and case. Ruger...

    Regarding the jackass who shot himself while "teaching" his boys how to shoot; the photo below perfectly demonstrates this guy's inability to properly instruct someone, let alone children, about how to properly handle and shoot a firearm: When I see people improperly holding their...

    I am a NJ resident and am looking to purchase some .22 LR ammo to start stocking up for when I purchase a Ruger 10/22 within a year. I do not have my NJ FID yet. I feel like the ammo prices will keep climbing higher. I have experience with shooting .22's since I was a child in the Boy Scouts...

    I want my next purchase to be a 10/22. I am curious which model or version is best for me. I just want a good rifle for small game and garden patrol. Nothing tactical looking or what not. Seems like there are about a thousand different variations. I was thinking of just buying the plain jane...

    I picked up a Ruger 10/22 today. I have owned several over the years (got my first one for $50 many years ago) I found a few surprises. There is a new magazine release. So far I really like it. The lock that came with it was really heavy duty and I will repurpose it soon.:D: I am not sure I...

    I'm talking about the bone stock plain base model Ruger 10/22 and the bone stock plain base model Remington 597. Where I am the Ruger is easily $60+ more than the Remington. Is there that much of a difference in quality? Anybody have major problems with a Remington 597?

    I bought a 10 22 a few weeks ago and mounted a middle of the road 4X32 scope on it that I had. I sighted it in last week and while the gun is a hoot to shoot the trigger in my opinion is really stiff. I'm thinking of installing a Volquartsen replacement hammer to improve the trigger feel. Has...
