I found my model 1283 on the Ruger sight and bought it just minutes before the CT school shooting. Could it be that it's too assaultish looking for the younger gender in some folks eyes?

NOT A PISTOL GRIP:eek: Is that the tactical barrel? Very clean looking 10/22. I wonder if people rushed to buy up the archangel 556 stocks?

Love the muzzle brake on the 10/22 - looks very cool! Does it anything functionally when shooting the rifle?

They don't keep all of them on the site forever. Generally, once a run, a contract is fully shipped the model will remain for a while but eventually will be taken down.

You are probably correct. Just with the black gun hate going on just made me wonder.

Were that the case, all the SR-556 models and Mini-14 models would have been removed as well. Gun manufacturers aren't the ones that want to take their products out of the market nor try and hide them. They want to sell their products not hide them away just to be politically correct.

That was a dealer exclusive anyway. Contract just probably ran out.

Very nice looking. I picked up a Mini-14 Tactical about a month ago. I figure it's definitely a "troubled" gun. Adjustable stock, side fold, pistol grip, flash suppressor. Damn, missing a bayonnet mount. I picked it up for around $675. I see them now on Gunbroker getting close to $1700.

Yea, I actually do, spring thru late fall we average about 1,000 rounds a month through our five 22's.

Just picked up a model 1284. Judging from your picture, it looks like the only difference between the 1283 and the 1284 is the barrel leanth. 1284 has the 18.5 inch barrel.

Correct my 1283 is 16 inch. Also think the 1284 has sights if I'm not mistaken. I'm ready to shoot mine it's ashame I've not even fired it yet.

Yes, the 1284 does have sights. I switched to the angled stock and added a scope. I also ordered a folding bipod and a laser for mine. I have not shot it yet either. Good luck with yours.

These very good rifles are no available in NJ and were not prior to the CT shooting. In Nj we cannot buy any semiauto rifle with a folding or collapsing stock and no mag over 15 rounds and no muzzlebreak on a semi auto.

In my case it was not the 10/22 I was looking for. I wanted either an SR-22 or a base carbine that I could convert to an M1 carbine. After looking fo a while for any 10/22, I stumbled onto the 1284. I jumped on it and no doubt it is growing on me. It reminds my of an M1 tactical carbine of sorts.
