Do both!!! 10/22s are a blast to modify and the gun itself is not that expense. Figure out which you'll use the most and work on it well you're waiting for another gun. Best of both worlds. I'm not a tacticool lover so I have a lightweight bull barrel 10/22 on a Boyds Evolution stock. Trigger, bolt have been reworked and it has a Mueller scope. I love it because its accurate enough to punch paper from a bench yet light enough for general plinking and ammo is cheap. Was gonna build a dedicated bench gun and opted out cause of other interests, but you can't have to many 10/22s.

Precision shooting, that way you can use it for both long range and plinking.

It also looks better... ;)

As Townsend Whelen famously said "only accurate rifles are interesting" and that's my feeling in a nutshell. Any fool can send a brick or two of 22s downrange, but for me the fun and the challenge is to see just how tight I can make my 50m rimfire groups and 100m for my centerfire groups.

Point well taken. As i get older, I find the just blasting away at cans etc isn't as much fun as seeing how well I can do shooting at paper. Quality of the gun has become important. Maybe my last post was a little over the top suggesting both. I would have more fun with the precision rifle if I had to choose.

Just a note if you are going to precision shoot. Figure out how much it's going to cost to convert a 10/22 into a precision rifle then look at the cost of a good bolt precision rifle and decide. I have probably 600 bucks in addition work and addons to my $200 10/22 and I wouldn't consider it a precision rifle, as most precision rimfire shooter use bolt guns.

I have the Archangel G36 kit on my 10/22 that I attach a scope to occasionally. Put some golf balls out @ 50yds and keep hitting them past 100yds no problem. Best of both worlds, I guess. The kit does give it some weight. Feels a bit heavier than my ARs.

Excellent advice.

10/22s can be funny critters and sometimes vexing critters. Get into modding them if you dearly love modding them but I agree that there are cheaper choices like a $500 CZ453 Varmint that can shoot just about as well or a $1000 (and waaaaaay up from there) Anchutz that will out shoot them. I used to know a guy that made ridiculously tiny (~3/8" @ 50m) groups after swapping in a ~$120 Green Mountain barrel and a $300 Kidd 2-stage trigger. The secret was how well he did the work and what an awesome shot the guy was. One of mine is nearly as accurate as my Annie and a whole lot more fun to shoot. :D

Do both if you can. Simple tacticool. Plus get the new SS take down. ;)

buy another 10/22 and do both. Or if there is minimal or no gunsmithing to get the new bodys on, just buy both and swap back and forth(right now I have 3 stocks for my 10/22, a standard, a thumbhole and a tommygun version).

The first one. You can dress it how you like, but at the end of the day it's still a .22. Plus, I still think that first one looks pretty cool. In fact, I think it looks "cooler" than the second one.

This is one of the reasons why the 10/22 is such a great choice... you have many options!

I'd say you have to get a gun suited to what you are doing with it...you'd look a lil funny run-n-gunning the first gun an you'd look pertty funny(to me) with the second gun at the 100yrd range shooting off the bench.

Ya I know guys do whatever they want, but set your gun up for what YOU want to do!

Where did you get the flash suppressor for the bull barrel?

Always go with the accurate one.

I'm guessing it is the first one pictured ;).

do you want to spray and play or target shoot. i have a 22 tactical and it is fun .it will never be a tight shooter though. if you get too cute with the mods on a tactical 22 it is like putting a huge wing on the rear of a honda civic. it gets silly.

I have a tacticool 10/22 with the Tapco Stock and will put a aimpoint clone on it soon. I also have a second 10/22 in the safe that will become my precision 10/22. As a choice I would go tacticool first, but it is what you would like the most that would be you first choice.

Neither. I bought my 10/22 for inexpensive training, plinking and small game hunting. Give me a durable, reliable and "accurate for hunting" rifle in a lightweight package.

What is nice about the 10 / 22 is the ability to make the rifle any way you want. Though tacticool seems almost scream compensating. I guess I am just getting old.

Tacticool is a cheap wannabee fad. Precision is a forever subject and way of shooting.
