Hopefully I'll get some more time to play with this in the coming week. I have a quick zero on it and got some phenomenal groups, but I want to put a higher X scope on it and run through my cache of ammo to see what it likes.
Thanks again, I'm still fence sitting about the scope. One nice thing I'm finding out about the 10/22 in general is that there's just a lot of affection for these rifles. I look forward to owning mine for a long time and improving it. Lots of fun and a good base to start with.
I fully confess wanting it to be a big seller because I want an aftermarket stock for it; in the meantime a project I'm working on is a pad for the butt stock so I can adjust the length of pull. It would be great if someone made that as an accessory and I'll do it myself if nobody comes out with them. It's not the recoil of the gun, it's just that I'd be more comfortable with 1/2" more length of pull. I'm not an NBA star but I still find it a little short.
It would be really cool if Pachmayr or Ruger or someone else made a set of pads for this gun like these.
