My "Field" 22 rifle is a pre-warning 10-22 Deluxe Sporter---bought used but minty---appeared to be shot very little---installed Volquartsen "auto bolt release" and extended magazine release (can't remember which brand) and added an Uzi Model A green canvas simple sling for field carry. Finally had my local gunsmith perform a trigger job as factory trigger was VERY heavy---now right at around 3 lbs... A favorite 22 fer sure!

I have a modest group of older 10/22 rifles, some wearing vintage scopes

they're fun to shoot and they sort of collect on their own 😁

1. 1965 - Japanese Tasco #660E 4x32 on Redfield Quick Switch tip off's
2. 1971 - Japanese Tasco #660A 4x32 on Herter's rings and vintage military style claw sling (sling not shown)
3. 1967 - Texan 2 1/2 x scope, Weaver Detachable 1" rings
4. 1967 - 2 piece base only, I'll find a nice vintage scope for it someday

Those checkered fingergrooves are rare indeed!!

I had never considered these rare, but looking in RENE "probably not more than 500" made.
Question...........
RENE says these have a " 4-point checkering pattern (also know as 1-point)" for the 10/22SPC and for the 10/22XC, a "5-point checkering pattern (also known as 2-point)"
Any pics of the difference?
