Saw this on Rugers webpage and just had to have one. Added a Nikon scope, a 10/22 Custom Charging Handle in Matte Black, and a Butler Creek 25 round mag in smoke color to finish it off. I can hardly wait to get to the range.

Very cool! Didn't know these had the hammer-forged target model barrel. I like it!

Put a Weaver 2x7 on mine. Spent the last two afternoons up on the hill behind the house shooting it.
Bipod's too short, I swapped a taller Harris on it.
Eventually was popping clay pigeons at 114 lasered yards easily.
Kinda like the thing.

Looks cool, I never had much luck with the extended magazines myself. One more thing that Ruger could do is thread the barrel for quiet toys.

I presume that is the standard hot lips mag. I've been looking for one more smoke colored steel lip mag for 2 years now.

Where did you get the charging handle?

I purchased them from the links below. The magazine is a Butler Creek Steel Lips. Midway is always getting more mags in stock, if they are out just put a couple on a wish list and it usually only takes a week or two. They let you know right away as soon as they get more in. Good luck.

Just bought one of those myself, did a couple of hours at the range. Real nice, crisp right out of the box. I was thinking of building one up, but this is so much easier right now.

I realize the tacticool is just that, but it is a nice rifle, fun and accurate. Draws attention at the range too, unfortunately.

Good to know sales are brisk at Ruger...

We have a dealer here in town with one of them with a silencer on it and sounds just like an air rifle when it goes off.

Martyj,

I have a good buddy who owns a 10/22 that came with a silenced barrel... looks like one of these tacticals but the silencer is part of the original 'factory I think' barrel...

I have to take issue with what you said... when you shoot it, it doesn't even sound like an air rifle... doesn't make that much noise... just the bolt going back and forward then a second later you hear a thump as the round hits... pretty damn weird. I'm told these were made for the Israeli Military.

Oh and Steve44, thanks! I put my name on the list at Midway and in less than a week got notice they were in and placed my order.... I also got two of the 10 round steel lip mags, even though they did only come in clear... hopefully for an Appleseed project in March... I've been told the 25 round mags stick down too far for prone shooting.
