With proven performance, a legendary action and a renowned, reliable rotary magazine, the Ruger 10/22 rifle is ideally suited for informal target shooting, plinking, small game hunting and action-shooting events. It is sleek, perfectly balanced, rugged and superbly accurate. The 10/22 Takedown features easy, quick separation of the barrel from the action for ease of transportation and storage. Takedown is as simple as locking the bolt back and verifying that the rifle is unloaded, pushing a recessed lever, twisting the subassemblies and pulling them apart. It also has an extended magazine release for the flush-mount, detachable 10-round rotary magazine, and a precision-rifled cold hammer-forged barrel. The combination scope base adapter for both Weaver-style and .22 "tip-off" scope mounts is provided with every rifle. The 10/22 Takedown includes a backpack-style bag, which provides ample storage for your 10/22 with extra pockets and magazine pouches.

I've had my 10/22 Takedown for several months now, and I have put about 2,500 rounds through it. I purchased this rifle for its compact functionality, and I wanted a reliable 22LR. Ruger seems to have a good reputation, so I went ahead and made the plunge.
The rifle comes with a carry bag, instructions, a 10 round magazine, a bolt lock, and a Weaver rail for optics. I also ordered a BX25 magazine separately.

The good:

1. Nice carry bag quality (design is another issue..see below)
2. Chambered in 22LR
3. Compact size.
4. Lightweight

The Cons/Bad/Problems:

1. I did inspect the firearm at my FFL like always. And like always, I missed something. The foldable rear open sight is slightly mounted at an angle. If you look down at it, they machined the slot in the SS barrel just off a bit. Not a huge deal, and when using the open sites, I was not off in windage, so I suppose it does not matter? Just makes you wonder about QC at Ruger.

2. The bolt release issue. So, I was unaware that there is a design problem with the 10/22 bolt release/bolt open bladed switch that goes back decades. It's just one of those things that people are aware of and seem to have accepted despite its persisting problems. You would think after decades that Ruger would redesign it just to get rid of the bad feelings and reviews. Not so. I suppose they enjoy the attention even if it is negative?

The issue is that there is a small metal blade just near the trigger that you use to open and catch the bolt and then release the bolt. It is a two-way mechanism. When you push it back towards the stock, it holds the bolt open. When you push it up towards the receiver, it is supposed to release the bolt. The operation to keep the bolt open is fine. Getting the bolt to release with this button is an abysmal failure.

I have spent more time trying to get this button to release than shooting the firearm. Seriously. You push and push and finagle with it, and the entire time your finger tip is getting sore and you're getting frustrated when you should be shooting%uFFFDit's unreal.

I took the trigger housing out and cleaned and lubed everything thinking that would help. It did not. It is a clear design issue and it appears that the good folks at Ruger for 50 years have said, "It's user error". You just have to push the blade correctly and it will release the bolt with no problem. Curious. 100's of thousands of people complaining over decades and that's the response? Evidently.

Now that I have searched the issue on the internet, I see it is a common problem and that there are tons of aftermarket solutions and modifications that you can do to either fix it yourself, or install a new trigger group or bolt release. Maybe Ruger wanted to spawn an entire cottage industry around fixing this issue. Seems that way. So, I can get a new trigger group from Timney or Volquartsen for $200 (more then half the cost of the rifle), or I can install a modified "auto bolt release" from numerous companies that seem to either work great, or they don't work at all. Leaning towards throwing the rifle in the back of the safe, and getting another 22LR from another company.

3. The takedown feature is cumbersome. Even after you get the tension correct, mounting and un-mounting are not intuitive for me.

4. The carry bag. Great concept, but who designed this and did they actually have the rifle that was going to fit in it when they designed it? The stock compartment on the one side is way to big. Why waste all the space. Make it 2/3's of the size it is, and put another compartment along side for scope, accessories, etc. Yet is is NOT big enough to mount an optic AND fit it in the bag.

The barrel side is also very curious. The larger compartment is supposed to house the barrel?? Yet, it is too big. The compartment next to that is smaller and just barely fits the barrel. Why didn't Ruger just make it so it fit the barrel size. Too big. Too small. What?

I'll be purchasing an aftermarket case of some sort. This one makes little sense in its design.

5. Trigger. Really not good. Very little first stage, if any at all, and then one of those "Surprise!" type breaks from pull to pull. Heavy and inconsistent. The trigger blade itself is too wide for most people.

6. Open sights. The rifle shot high from the moment I got it. I dropped the rear sight all the way down and it still shoots high. I just got used to shooting that way, and then I purchased a Picatinny rail and a scope. Problem solved.

So, to make this rifle enjoyable I will have to purchase a new trigger group at the very least. I have to weigh that with just purchasing a new rifle.

Not what I had in mind. If you are in the market for a 22LR, I would suggest you find a friend that at least has one of these for you to shoot. Maybe the Takedown version is not the way to go. Maybe if I got another version and replaced the bolt release for $20, I'd be singing Ruger's praise. Unfortunately, that has not been my experience.

As always, Buds was great. Shipping was right on time and rifle arrived in perfect condition.
I am extremely happy with this rifle. It is very accurate right out of the box. With the pump action the point of aim on additional follow up shots is much quicker than with a bolt or lever action rifle. I was able to get a 10 round magazine for it and it is now dubbed my amish machine gun. Highly recommend this rifle to anyone who likes a pump action .. works just like my pump shotgun.

Bud's service was excellent as usual! Now on to the gun-
Instantly my favorite gun I have ever purchased. It is exactly what I was looking for. The gun is well built and goes together flawlessly. The bag is excellent and the gun breaks apart and stores perfectly. Whether you are looking for a .22 for hunting, survival, plinking, or just because, I highly recommend this rifle.
