    I was at the range today, and was just curious as to how much the 10/22's were at the range( Dick's Sporting goods had them for 199.99) Well they had a basic model for 239.99 which was way more then I was willing to spend seeing as how I wasn't even looking for a gun at this time. I started to walk away and then the counter guy said, we just took a older 10/22 in on trade. I decided to take a look at it. Its got some minor marks on the stock, other then that, it looks like its in good condition. I ended up buying it for 130 dollars. Is this a good price?

    Yes it is. I'd have paid that for any lightly used 10/22, assuming I had the money at all. :supergrin:

    Actually, I think you may have gotten a better deal than buying a new one, as the older ones had many parts that were metal vs. the current plastic substitutes. I don't mind buying/using guns that were DESIGNED with plastic parts/frames (this IS Glock Talk, after all), but when a gun has metal parts and suddenly the manufacturer changes over to plastic, it just seems to cheapen the product. Warped parts (look closely at the barrel band on those new 10/22s), mold marks (trigger housing), and even casting marks on the bottom of the barrel's front sight band. It's sad.

    I'd have jumped on any 10/22 for $130.00, new or used, unless it looked like it had been dragged behind a truck, and I might have taken it even then.

    Its got a small chip on the stock. a few dents on it as well. The barrel has a small mark on it, and the ring that holds the barrel to the stock has a similar wear mark as well. Other then that it looks good. I too dont have any extra cash, so I had to put a deposit on it, and Ill pick it up on next Thur. Oh well gives me another excuse to go to the range and shoot it, along with my Glock, and Hi Standard H-D Military

    Im glad that I went with an older one that has metal parts then. I didnt really know that. I didnt do any research on this gun aside for the whole modifications aspect. I really wasnt even looking for one at the time

    I would have paid $130 just for the receiver -- screw the barrel and stock! :supergrin:

    I love this gun. I probally put 200 rounds thru it all of which were dead on. Only problem I had was with the mag. It would jam up and not feed the next round, so I had to use the Bananna mag. When I got home from the range, I took it apart and found a TON of lead and other waxy build up caked inside the mag. Cleaned it out and loaded it up no problem. It will eject every round now, but I dont know how well it will when its actually being fired.

    My Tapco Stock came in today. [​IMG] I really like it. Only problem I see is the barrel seemed kinda loose. I took the top cover off and resecured it, and it seemed a bit tighter. Did anybody else have this issue?

    The barrel seemed loose in the receiver, or the barrel and receiver combo seemed loose in the stock?

    Is the large screw in front of the magazine well tightened snugly? When I installed my stock, the barrel was riding a little high in the channel until I put the top cover on; then everything was tight as a drum.

    I put mine in the Tapco made for the .920 barrel. Then I put a washer between the stock and gun. It floated the barrel. I installed a Volq target hammer and auto release. I added an extended mag release. I bought a couple of the Tactical Innovations adjustable 25 round mags. It is now as much fun to play with as my M&P 15-22. A used one for $130.00 is a great deal. Plenty of options.

    hopefully, on your ignore list
    I tended to agree about he polymer trigger assembly. Mine is Al. I saw an article by someone who tested the new polymer design. They beat the rifle up pretty good and determined the polymer was actually more durable. One of the notable observations was a heavy blow to the trigger guard assembly. The aluminum version was bent, but the polymer version flexed back out and was usable. They beat it up pretty good, but the polymer still seemed to be worth the change. I'll try to find the link and ETA.

    Found it:
