With millions of 10/22's sold since its introduction in 1964, Sturm Ruger has set the bar for .22 Rifles in America. The 10/22 is ideal for target shooting, plinking, small game hunting, and action shooting events.

Whether you are just learning how to shoot or you've been shooting for years, the 10/22 is a model that is sure to meet your need for reliability, consistency, and accuracy. If you don't already own a 22 LR rifle, it is a great way to spend an afternoon as the cost of the ammunition is far less than center fire calibers as a 22 LR shell can run as low as $.04/round making it a great target practice rifle.

This carbine has an 18.5" barrel and includes Ruger's patented rotary magazine which is a compact durable magazine holding 10 rounds. One huge advantage of buying a Ruger is that since it is one of the most widely sold 22 LR firearms ever, there are a host of after market accessories made for it including barrels, scope mounts, replacement stocks, laser sights, etc. Many after-market magazines are available for this carbine which increases the capacity but few magazines are as durable as the factory included rotary magazine that come with this carbine.

This rifle includes a trigger lock and 1-10 round rotary magazine.

Steve Hanberg ( Mon, 14 Oct 2013 19:29:45 +0000 ) : i like the 22
Carl Foster ( Thu, 17 Oct 2013 23:30:44 +0000 ) : nothing lead tipped the cci mini mags and the federal 550 bulk pack seem to fire effortlessly
Robert Evans ( Mon, 24 Mar 2014 03:07:02 +0000 ) : On the range I use the cci velocity,but in The field use the federal lightning.
Lance Violette ( Tue, 23 Sep 2014 21:00:38 +0000 ) : I'm a dushbag
Dennis Thompson ( Sun, 15 Nov 2015 02:28:44 +0000 ) : Wolf "match target" 40gr. or Geco 40gr. both German rounds>>> shoot very well in the 10/22
Corey Morse ( Sat, 02 Jan 2016 12:47:55 +0000 ) : I recently tested 20 different brands/types of 22 ammo through my wood/blued takedown at 50 yards, and the top three were all Federal brand 40gr bullets. 1st place was actually the Fed Automatch bulk, 2nd was Fed American Eagle 40gr and 3rd came the regular Fed 40gr. People say the CCI mini mags shoot amazing... I havent had their luck. 1 inch groupings were consistant with the Fed brand, while Mini Mags consistantly were shooting 2-3 inch groups. That being said, my stock of Mini Mags are fairly old compared to my Feds, if that could make the difference.
Roger Davault ( Mon, 07 Mar 2016 20:50:40 +0000 ) : I AGREE JUST SHOT MY FIRST .25 5 SHOT GROUP @ 50 YDS BEST I HAVE DONE SO FAR
