The question's a good one however somewhat vague.quote:Originally posted by rmeron
Are the new crop of 10/22's as good or better than the old ones?
I saw a deluxe for $269+tx and a std carbine for $209+tx in my local gunshop.
The Leupold access is great but your vesting in a defined benefit pension plan will really make a difference in your life.....long term!quote:Originally posted by pioneer461
I stayed at Leupold long enough to get a bunch of optics at employee discount, and become vested in the retirement system.
After market is the way to go when it comes to the Ruger 10/22. This one started out as a standard carbine and $1500.00 later there isn't one part that hasn't been replaced or reworked.quote:Originally posted by jjfunk
I also want to get a T model. But to answer the question, I really don't know. I just bought one of those WWS 10/22's, but never shot it. Instead I went ahead and modded it completely out. As far as the receivers? yeah, they still rock. But everything else in my latest 10/22 is aftermarket. I think that the aftermarket crowds are primarily the driving reason that people get 10/22's anyways, but hey, just my opinion.
