Tactical advantage of a 10/22?

I was looking at my rifle, thinking of 10/22's I've had before, and looking at the multitude of pics on the web and was wondering if there was really an advantage of a tatical 10/22? Don't get me wrong, the flat black and camo versions I've seen look awesome, I'm not dogging the style. When I see a pic of a well built 10/22 tactical it looks like a .308 should be flying out of the barrel. I thought, "once I get approved to add a silencer, I can really deal with the squirrel hostage situations that may arise out in the back woods behind the house". Little turds keep finding ways into my attic. If I do go the tactical route I'm contemplating either a solid OD green, multi-cam, or just a base coat and use local grasses to mask different colors over it.
SInce I joined here I've been looking at pics, you guys have really set up some classy looking rifles.

Chris

tglazie is an unknown quantity at this point
In the event of a zombie apocalypse a silenced tacticool 10/22 would be my weapon of choice vs the zombies threat (of course zombies would only be part of the threat in a worst case scenario).

The 10/22 and AR15's are just barbies for men, no other reason

All the rails give you more spots to spend money on. Trust me, Im guilty of it.

Paying for rails, then paying for rail covers to cover them up.

As we said in the marine corps we have to be high speed and low drag and I think the basic 10/22 is just that high speed and low drag.

I think the basic 10/22 is very essence of tactical and the extra ad-ons are actually a hindrance.

For the 10/22, I like plain and simple best. Scope, bigger magazines, all good. I don't use much else. This is not to say I won't eventually build a tactical 10/22, but I hope to build an AR first

I own several 10-22s and all have either the original iron sights a scope or a peep sight. None have rails etc.

I think with this one I will probably sell the Fajen target stock and swith to an OD Hogue stock. A dealer buddy I have will Duracoat the metal parts, scope and bipod, then I'll be all set. The Fajen is nice but not really my style.

i'll agree with what some earlier posters have said. i'm still pretty new to the whole firearms community, but i like the look of my 10/22s pretty much the way they are. only thing i'm thinking about is buying a wooden stock cheap on ebay and doing a nice refinishing job. i don't know why, but i just love the deep rich look of a glossy-finished wooden stock. as for tactical, i don't feel like i need it. i guess in the zombie apocalypse scenario so many bring up in relation to tactical stuff, if that ever happens i think i'll just be glad i have a few semi-autos.

Why not? Tactical is something to be used short term to gain an advantage. Small quick and allows for easy maneuverable.

1. I was USMC trained with an m-16 but could use a 10/22 just as affective.
2. You can carry hundreds of more rounds of .22 than you can of .223
3. M-16 and 10/22 both semi auto.
4. Both can hold 25 rounds in a clip.
5. Some say 22 isn't big enough caliber but if they got hit in the face with one I guaranteeing it would be a bad day.

If all I had to defend my house with was a 10 22 I am confident the bad guys would wish they picked a different house.

I think movies have fooled people into thinking they are Rambo and all bad guys are the Terminator. In real life the bad guys don't keep coming after being shot 10 times buy a glock. If they get hit once with anything they usually run if they can.

I am thinking about a Knoxx Axiom stock....I have heard the front end can be a little flimsy but I figure if I fill it with expanding foam that will fix that problem and still make a good looking 10-22 but not so tactical as varmint sniperish.

Thats what im thinking. You can carry 2.5-3x the amount of ammo. Plus is cheap to shoot, you can train/practice for a fraction of the cost

For me it's more for giggles than anything else. But honestly I could see being able to tote around 500 rounds of ammunition pretty handy. That being said my next ruger is most likely going to be a plain jane 10/22 compact.


As far as rails go I like the idea of a universal rail size on all my firearms. Why not be able to swap everything from gun to gun if you had to?
