Worth it! Ruger 10/22s are amazing rifles, have one with over 2,000 rounds mix of cci mini mags and bulk packs not cleaned it once and have not had any failures besides dud ammunition.

Super Accurate - throw tech sights on them and you're good to go!

Depends on what you mean by accurate? Shooting a 5 shot bughole at 50yds won't happen without a lot of work and $$$. Out of the box it won't be as accurate as just about any bolt action .22lr. 1" groups at 50yds is possible out of the box. Not knocking the rifle, just reality for that gun.

They're decent but out of the box accuracy is pretty average. Stock sights suck. The takedown mechanism is nifty and seems to maintain zero just fine, even with (receiver mounted) tech sights.

Got my 10/22 Takedown a while back and love it (first .22LR firearm). Just mounted the Weaver RV-7 scope to it last night. It's accurate enough with the iron sights for the ranges you'd expect to be firing .22LR at...

Great little rifles. Co-worker bought one a few months ago. Tons of fun, reliable, easy to shoot. Get one.

However, if high-precision is a must for you, you're looking at the wrong gun for the time being. AFAIK, there are no aftermarket barrels for the takedown, so significant improvements in precision aren't an option at this time. If you are a patient person, given how well the rifle is selling, I don't imagine this segment of the market will remain unserved for long. Someone will start selling barrels & bits for the takedown, probably within a year.

I just bought one several weeks ago but i had my eye on one since December. I should have picked it up then and saved myself $30. Oh well. At least i had the foresight to pickup 6 bricks!

I really like it. I have no idea why I waited.

It's the luck of the draw.

I was lucky to get one that had no problems, trigger not heavy, no flaws, shoots VERY accurate etc. No mods. just a scope.

But there are lemons out there.

Overall its a great concept for portability, discretion and ease of storage.

Very fun.

Friend showed me the new variant of the Ruger 10/22 Takedown which has a threaded barrel. Makes me want one now.

I bought one from BassPro for $297+tax/fees and I really like it. Mine is pretty accurate with the right ammo. I can shoot a sub 1/2", 5 shot group @25yds with Remington SubSonic and have shot ones about half that size when I really pay attention.

Something I have learned to check on all 10/22s with synthetic stocks is the receiver to stock fitment, which can be hit or miss. Mine had quite a bit of slop and went back to Ruger for a new stock (still just a hint of play) but they paid shipping both ways.

Turners Oxnard has them both in stock. Was there today. Take down is a cool idea if you want it. I love my regular model.

can't go wrong with a 10/22 whatever model you get. I'm not a scope guy. I love irons and put tech sights on mine. They are awesome.

I handled one today at a Big 5. I felt this gun was too small in my hands. I liked the Savage in wood better.

But I think I'll wait for a CZ.

I bought mine for one reason- as a trunk or survival gun. it's surely not a target rifle....

Just picked mine up this morning!

I have a scoped Marlin 795 already, but I had originally bought techsights for the Marlin for an Appleseed event and realized I couldn't really see the target very well, so I bought a cheap scope for it (and shot a rifleman score eventually, once I bought a good scope MOUNT).

So I fretted about the wasted money in the Marlin techsight, then someone pointed out that if you put the dovetail mount on the Ruger 10/22, you can mount the Marlin techsight (rear) on it, and still have space for rimfire scope mounts if you want! Now all I need is a matching techsight front sight (or really, any matched front sight) and it'll be good to go!

As a takedown, I wanted to keep the scope off it. My friend has the same gun and it is tough to stick it in the case with the scope.

Maybe quick release scope mounts would work, but it would need re-zeroing every time.

But, think about what the takedown feature is good for. I mean I don't even really know why I bought it, other than to have an extra .22 lr rifle. And since the other gun is a Marlin, they can't even share mags.

I might have been better off with a standard 10/22, but then the TD is just neat. You have to decide if it's worth the premium.

My fiance works at Big 5 and bought the first one that came in. Sweet little Rifle!
My AR is 7.62x39, so that if/when we get invaded, I can shoot their ammo back at them!

Picked mine up over a month ago. Have not had a chance to shoot it yet.
Plan on using it tomorrow at an IDPA 2 gun match. We can use center fire
or rim fire at this match. Lucky all the stages are on the pistol bays. Nothing like going to a match with an unfired gun! LOL!. Will be taking my Spikes 22LR lower/ Model 1 Sales upper as a back up just in case.
If you can't shoot good, at least look good shooting
