    I have a Ruger 10/22 Stainless that I've had for years. It's probably one of the best rifles I think I've ever had so far.

    I have a stainless 10/22 with a 30 round clip and a 3x9 scope. Its a pretty solid gun.

    I have been lucky enough to own two stainless steel models.One regular with the laminated stock,and one of the heavy barrel target models.Both are nice looking guns.That target with the twisted hex shaped barrel,is truely a beauty.peewee-williams

    Bought mine back in the mid 70's. It has had many thousands of rounds through it and works like the day it was new!

    I've got one and it's by far my favorite gun. I have shot a lot of coons w/ that old gun and it still works great, anybody that does any coon hunting knows how hard it's on a gun.

    Ive owned a couple of those little rifles and still own a stainless rifle with a green laminated stock.Im not a big fan while accurate enough out of the box to hunt with it aint nothing special I think the draw is alll the aftermarket parts for it .There not built for big men like me stock is tooo short ther about as comfortable as holding a 2x4 .Now that being said I love ruger firearms I own a couple of handguns by ruger single actions and a .357 gp 100 built like a tank .My rifle of choice in .22 rimfire is the marlin 925 .accurate out of the box reliable bolt action and adult stock .But they are a ton of aftermarket parts to really make those little rifles sing ! The chevy team challenge mainly uses them for competition

    I have one! All my freinds had them when we were younger and most of them still do! So I figured they must be as good as I have heard. So I bought one 5 yrs ago and planning on buying my son one next yr.

    i have the stainless international model, green laminate stock goes to the end of the barrel. it's pretty, but seems very heavy for a 22. good shooter. but all of them that i have shot could really use a good trigger job. seven pounds of pull is way to heavy for accuracy. after market trigger and sear will get them down to a pound and a half. all in all a great little gun.
