    Take down vs regular 10/22

    What would you guys suggest? I'm looking to buy a 10/22 this week.. Is the 10/22 take down just as accurate as the conventional one? Any upgrades reccomended? I'll be putting a .22 scope on it

        I don't have a takedown, so I'm talking out of my ass.
        I thought the takedown was very cool when it came out and thought I'd like to get one, but then I thought about - why do I want one.
        I have a perfectly serviceable 10/22 and my backpacking days are decades behind me, so I let the idea die.
        If you are just going to the range, what's the attraction to the takedown?

            The take down is nice because you can be discreet. A plus for people that, for whatever reason, don't want to be seen hauling a gun case to their car by nosy neighbors perhaps.

              Just get the standard one and spend the extra money on a better scope or tripod, better yet get the heavy barrel model and make it a tack driver.

                I had the same debate when I bought my 10/22. Ultimately I decided on the regular one as it was unlikely I would ever really need the take down version (as cool as it was).

                  I have see. People with the bull barreled 10/22... How much more of an upgrade is it over the regular barrel?

                    I have both. I like the takedown for when I go to states where I can't conceal carry a pistol. On some occasions my business takes me to some dicey neighborhoods, like the time I was coincidentally in Florida when the Trayvon verdict was being announced. You can fit it in a computer case, and assemble it ready to fire in seconds.

                    I and most reviewers found no difference in accuracy and some makers have started making bull barrels for the takedown.

                    I'd worry more about which optic/ sight to use and replacing the mag and bolt release as well as installing a BX trigger http://grabagun.com/ruger-25.html

                      I built my fully custom 10/22 for about $700 before optics but the only stock part is the reciever.

                      I used Kidd barrel, bolt, charging handle, buffer
                      Magpul stock
                      Brimstone Gunsmithing trigger group

                      Love that thing

                          Some of you guys may get a kick out of this article I came across the other day about the history and development of the 10/22 models over the years.
