Question 10/22 Takedown vs Scope

Those of you with a Ruger 10/22 Takedown WITH a scope... does the scope stay accurate when removing the barrel from the action, and replacing? I can't help but think you'd have to re-sight it in each time you attatch the barrel.

I want to get a scope for my Takedown; just not sure how much of a 'hassle' (per say) it would really be, if any...

Let me know your thoughts! Thanks everyone!!

Buddy L.

I have two takedowns. They DO NOT return perfectly to zero when dis/reassembling. The only way they work perfectly is if the optic is mounted to the barrel. There are several ways to do this. Volquartsen, and Adaptive Tactical make cantilever barrels with an optic rail. Magpul is coming out with a block that wraps around the barrel, and replaces the barrel latch release lever block. Amega Mounts makes a scout scope mount for the Takedown. I have the Volquartsen barrel, and have documented its exceptional performance here at RugerForum, and RimfireCentral.

IMHO, and experience, the only way to get the takedown to achieve correct operation, and perfect return to zero, is when the optic, or sighting system is attached to the barrel, and not the receiver.

you can get the UTG Bugbuster and not need to take it off as it fits. i think a lot of people recommend and today only it is on sale at Amazon. When you add to cart it take $10 off from UTG and then today only amazon has a promo code BIGTHANKS that takes off an additional $8.62 making it $55.70 plus tax. This is about $20 off the amazon price

The bug buster is just a short scope and does not attach to the barrel, which was what this discussion was about.

I accept that my takedown is not going to be perfect for target shooting. It goes to the range once in a while. I have the Ruger 10/22 Laser on it and since it connects to the barrel it stays accurate. Since I only shoot about 50 yds with my 10/22's this isn't an issue. I also have a small red dot which is accurate enough for what I use the gun for, which is travel.

For precise target shooting, probably not the best option but...

For plinking around I have no issues with mine being very, very close. Currently using a red dot but I did have a Nikon fixed power on it and I was more at fault with any misses than the rifle was.
