Ok, gonna test it tomorrow. Can't today - we have a torential downpour going on.

Decided to try a Nikon P-22 2-7x32 on the 10/22. With the scope mounted, it fits in the bag but not in the pouch.

And check this out; they have this app Spot-On (http://www.nikonhunting.com/spoton" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) that lets you enter the scope, bullet, magnification & atmospheric conditions and it will tell you exactly what each bubble on the reticle represents in bullet drop:

Now I gotta go see if the app will run on my android...

I bought one of those first, but changed to the p223 so it would fit in the pouch. Nice little scope, I kept it and put it on my CZ .22.

I tried it again, and it does fit in the pouch with the scope mounted. It just took getting it at the right angle.

And here it is action with the scope. Did it hold its zero after being taken down & reassembled?



You betcha.

Pretty decent scope too by the way...

Nice vid and I have to say would there be any doubt that a Ruger rifle would perform?

Just installed a Timney drop-in trigger group. It went from an inconsistent 5.5-6lb pull with lots-o-creep to a 2.5lb pull with absolutely no creep whatsoever. It also has an extended "lever action" mag release for one finger operation and an auto-bolt release so no more fumbling around with that silly button.

I can't wait to shoot it, this may be be the perfect .22lr rifle. Why didn't I find 10/22's sooner???

I can feel a disturbance in the force already... a threaded barrel and suppressor, the future do I see... hmm?

Now you know why Justin is a 10/22 NUT. You should see some of his custom creations.
Actually, WE should see some of them. Most that he posted over the years were taken with his cheap POS camera that looked like...well...let's just say you have to use your imagination to really understand what you were looking at. :D

We laugh, but its true.
Those Gen1 pics from Justin were...HORRIBLE.
Pink and blue fuzzy blurry blobs shaped somewhat like a rifle. And we'd all 'ooh' and 'ahh' over them to make him feel good...all the while wondering, 'WTF was that?!'
It was almost like someone smeared Vaseline over the camera lens...
We love him to death but his photo taking skills back in the day left a lot to be desired!
I think the best I could come at emulating one of his photos would be to jump up and down on a trampoline with a first generation camera phone and try to take a close up of a Corvette passing by at full throttle...

I LOL'd so hard. Pretty sure I remember a pink furry blob. It also might've had this giant scope on it.

I wish I had the forethought back in the day...someone had posted a C&P of 'The People You Meet At A Gunshow'. I edited it to include my own little write up for Justin at the end.
He's the guy who can do anything with the Ruger 10/22. Thinks that a factory stock is heresy, and if left unattended, you'll find your small children and perhaps your cat dyed bright new primary colors.
Meh..I can't remember what all I wrote since it was off the cuff, but at the time, it made me chuckle as I typed.
While I enjoyed teasing him about it, if I ever had any questions about that platform, he'd definitely be the guy I'd call first. I don't think there's a mod he hasn't done to a 10/22 in the past, and he has a memory like a steel trap.

Thanks, that's good information. Now I know who to talk to when I want to add a flux capacitor to my 10/22!

Haha, maybe I'll dig them all out and get a family photo on of these days. The tie dye part might have been when I dyed the clear factor Ruger mags red to match one of my guns.

Oh wait, here is one of those gen1 photos now. :p

I'm also trying to save money, and seeing this new 10/22 is making it hard.

Great setup. I'm getting one just like it. I know, copycat. Deal with it...
