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.

Armand Proulx ( Wed, 09 Oct 2013 15:54:49 +0000 ) : i am looking for 22 magnum shells. call me 918-567-4383
Armand Proulx ( Thu, 10 Oct 2013 14:54:46 +0000 ) : ruger 1022 are not magnum shells
John Russell ( Tue, 19 Nov 2013 21:26:10 +0000 ) : Apparently this article is WELL out of date. The article mentions .22 rimfire ammo for 4 cents per. At the bottom of the article, 5250 rounds of CPHP .22 LR Ammo by Federal is linked to, but when you click the link, it takes you to .357 Magnum Ammo. The best price I can find on this site for .22 rimfire ammo is 16 cents apiece at $80 for 500 rounds and no where near 5250 rounds offered in a brick.
Joseph Achord ( Mon, 06 Jan 2014 02:25:07 +0000 ) : Don't own 1
Mike Fagel ( Tue, 05 Aug 2014 19:32:23 +0000 ) : I can buy local for .06 cents or 3.49 a box. I just cannot understand someone paying 10.00 for a box of 50
Herman Terry ( Thu, 27 Nov 2014 01:35:54 +0000 ) : Where did all the 22 magnum ammo go? I need a couple boxes.
Herman Terry ( Thu, 27 Nov 2014 01:51:54 +0000 ) : Mike are you able to buy 22 magnums?
Al Schmidt ( Mon, 29 Dec 2014 04:28:27 +0000 ) : I have never found a favorite as many work flawlessly in my 10-22. The ones not to use are wax coated, they gum up the rotary magazine. Yes, the magazines can be taken apart and cleaned, but that is far from fun. Unless you are as blocked headed as me and will not give up until you succeed, you had better have some gun-smithing experience to put back together that 10-22 magazine.
Charles Stansbury ( Tue, 14 Apr 2015 06:00:09 +0000 ) : CCI Day in day out consistently is the best and cheapest 22 long rifle 40 grain cartage's available.
