Honestly dude. Don't waste your time. The Barrel of the 10/22 comes off with 2 allen bolts.

Seriously, chop the stock down, refinish it and maybe hollow out the rear of the stock if you want to get crazy. Put the allen wrench in the butstock. Boom Take down 10/22.

For real though I did play with one at Rapidfirearms in Sandy for a few. Nothing special but pretty cool that they decided to offer it.

The Ruger booth at the sportsman show in Anchorage had one. That's the only place I've seen one here locally to date.

Slicker than snot.

According to Rugers' literature, it is a new concept, hardly, I had a Browning .22 semiautomatic that was a takedown, all of them were TD's.
In another blinding flash of brilliance I sold it, I only had the equivalent of $15 in it. Brilliant!!!!!

Rugers' weapons are about as simple as can be made, and they work!

i think they were going for a cross between a 10/22 and an AR7. which are just about useless by the way. I have yet to put my hands on one. I think if i were going for portable i would either go with a side folder or a charger.

I really like my charger.

I picked up a wally world special a while back. Its a Rossi I think. Came with a .22 barrel, and a 410 shotgun barrel. Great little gun, but it has cheesy plastic furniature.

i have one of those rossi 22/410 combos and all it does is sit in my SHTF bag, along with a lot of ammo a wetterlings 19" axe knives and other gooddies.
i haven't shot it yet. but then again its a .22 nothing really worth going to a gun range over.

Yep the .22 cal LR is a 10+!!!! I lOVE THE HENRY SURVIVAL MODEL!! Don't pass one of these up. Old or new model either way they are worth their weight, packs light, breaks down and fits in it's own stock that floats even. They look cheesy as all hell but mine have provided dinner on more than a few adventures up here! Lube it up and pack it away with some ammo and you will never regret it!

I'm gonna have to disagree with the range comment. I love punchin holes with the 22. Plus, as often as these things get beaten around (only a 22 right) its best to go and make sure they are zeroed.

My 2 cents, The 10/22 is ok to plink tin cans, If you want to shoot penny's at 200 feet plus or shoot a grouse in the eye, I'd spend a little more and get a high end 22. They do make high end 10/22's also.
