I was going to mod a 10/22...started looking for a used one, and found an incredible deal on a NIB 1968 10/22...it was bought from Sears for $54 in 1968.
Real walnut stock, all metal construction.
Last week, I was sighting in a cheap 4 power scope at 50yds. I was shooting Blazer bulk ammo, and easily shooting dime sized 10rd groups that obliterated the X at that range.
I'm not doing a thing to this rifle.
