Ruger 10/22 Deluxe Model 10/22DSP, 22 LR 18 1/2" Blued Barre
by Dennis W Date Added: Thursday 06 October, 2011
Ordered this rifle at the last minute for an "Appleseed" shoot. Bud's got it to me in time, I mounted a Leupold 3.5 X 10 scope on it & sighted it in the evening before the shoot. I did not have time to try several different brands of ammo in it to see what it liked the best. As received it was an attractive rifle, nicely figured walnut stock with fit & finish being very acceptable. I purchased the rifle mainly to be a more economical means of shooting the 400-500 rounds required for the shoot vs. the cost of shooting an AR-15 (.223). This match is shot at 25 meters. I immediately found that the rifle was not going to shoot precisely enough to be competetive. I had been spoiled by the 2 stage match triggers in my Rock River AR's. This 10-22 trigger was heavy and rough enough to affect my shooting significantly. That coupled with the problems I had getting the bolt release to work after magazine changes during timed fire caused me to retire the 10/22 to my vehicle in favor of an AR, with which I qualified. I plan to spend more time with the rifle at home, working up a favorite load and investigating tthe bolt release problem. Bottom line: it certainly is an attractive rifle. It is described as a rifle that is competitive right out of the box, which in my hands, proved not to be the case.
