Does any member have experience of the Ruger 10/22? I've just bought a second-hand De-Luxe for not much money, thinking that it might be a bit of fun to use a semi-auto, as a change from my old super-perfect set trigger Krico.
Dry firing it, it seemed to have a creepy, and heavy trigger, but I guess I can stone its vitals up a bit to improve that. I wondered too about free floating the barrel, although a chum told me that he'd heard that a small area of contact should be left near the front of the fore-end. It's a pretty thin barrel, so maybe it whangs up and down a tad without a bit of support.
Yes, I know there are better .22s for the same money, but I just fancied it.
I'm not expecting MOA at 100 yards with this thing, but I guess it'll be pretty good medcine against the pesky squirrels and magpies. With a moderator and sub-sonics, they won't remember a thing. Does anyone have inside info on the best sub-sonics? I'm still long-stocked on ancient RWS., but maybe there are some magic alternatives.
