10/22 Mannlicher

I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but who can splain to me why Ruger felt there would be a market for the "man-licker" stock 10/22? Personally, I think it is ugly. Looks like something some second rate army in Eastern Europe would carry.

And that's exactly the bigger point. Ruger is an American company that takes pride in making firearms here in America. Notable among their recent newer offerings are the SR1911 and the Ruger American Rifle. Just seems weird to make a Euro-flavored 10/22 right now.

Meanwhile, try to find a regular sporter with a walnut stock. They are really scarce.

As you said...Individual likes and dislikes make the difference.
I currently have Four 10-22's
I Have photos of All Four..each has it's own 'identity'


1. The Stealth Edition- All Matte Black with glow-nite sights



2. The International. I do like the looks-


3. A standard 10-22 in a Thumbhole "Yukon" Stock. I like the way this one handles.


4. Finally, I recently got a TARGET 10-22, with Bull-Barrel, Compensator, and Hogue Stock



So my advice is make one look the way you like it, and ignore what others think or say...works for me.
AL

I also like the looks of a mannlicher stock. A friend of mine has a custom mannlicher stock done for his 10/22 and it is gorgeous.

303lithgow is wrong, so wrong! The Yukon stock 10/22 is hideous beyond measure. Ship it to me and I'll even pay the shipping fee.

What a deal!

I found the photos of the All Black version. I edited it into the display above. It's ok, but I don't care much for the feel of the synthetic stock. May find another exotic Yukon-style for it...The Red, White, and Blue sort of appeals to me now.

How about this- real patriotic, Ehhh?

De gustibus non disputandum. The full-length stock has been on beautiful hunting rifles for over a century. Practically, it does protect the barrel when stalking through the bush.

I think the Internationals are beautiful, especially with a well-figured walnut stock.

I don't care for the style of stock but must admitt that is beautiful to look at.

I think it's a thing of beauty, I've currently got one with the grey laminate full length stock on layaway at my local gunshop. And someday I will have a Ruger M77 RSI International in my collection. Love the look and feel of it...... but to each his own I always say.

Ruger made International version 10/22s before. They just decided to make them again, nothing new. I lke the looks okay, but not the added weight. My Sporter is more to my taste.

My wife got me the walnut stocked Sporter for Christmas in 2009. I've seen several since, without looking for one.
