In the rifle world, what is the niche filled by the Ruger 10/22? I get that it's inexpensive out of the box, that it shoots inexpensive ammo, and that it can be compact and lightweight, depending on mods. It can be used for taking small game, like squirrels or rabbits. What other game or pests are suitable for this rifle? How accurate can you expect it to be, unmodified? What accuracy mods give the best results for money spent? How reliable can you expect it to be, unmodified? What reliability mods give the best bang for the buck? Where is the sweet spot for this rifle where accuracy and reliability mods start to cost so much that you might as well start with a different platform? What similar rifles are out there, for a given purpose? What questions did I forget to ask? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
