10/22 Takedown

hello...

I'm interested in the 10/22 takedown....is there any advantage in the alloy barrel vs the stainless barrel? Considering looks only, I'm partial to stainless, although the 10/22 TDT model 11112 (w/ threaded barrel and flash suppressor) is tugging at me.

any advise/opinions?
thanks in advance....

llymphs, In my opinion ... the stainless barrel has a definate advantage. Consider the very purpose of a take down model ... it's intended for back packing, storing behind the seat in a truck, storing on a boat ... or other conditions that expose it to the elements ... much like a survival rifle. As such, stainless will hold up much better to the environment than a blued gun. If you are buying a 10/22 just as a shooter, maybe a non-take down model might be a better option, especially if your future plans include any customizing.

A flash suppressor on a 22 LR is purely Bling ... no functional need, just looks. I realize many people buy stuff that looks cool so if that's your "thing" ... go for it ... it only costs a few bucks more.

Unless you want the threaded barrel, I see no advantage either way. I own the stainless TD and am very happy with it. Went with a stainless scope and rings to match.

Just read Iowegan's post. If the blued model is only blued and has no other coating, then the stainless would have an advantage over the blued. I almost posted that but many modern blued weapons have some sort of coating. However, Iowegan would probably know.

I really liked the flash hider also but after long thought got the stainless. Mine is part of a get and go I keep in the truck. If you just want to shoot, get traditional non-takedown as has been mentioned. Use the money you save for mags or glass.

Even if you get the stainless don't think it won't rust. I just found some light surface rust on my TD a few days ago. I keep my guns clean and well oiled or so I thought. I've never had a problem with rust on any of my guns before so I am puzzled why I'm getting rust on my stainless TD.

The threaded model 11112 is ready for silencer use out of the box. That's about the only advantage over the SS model.

I just got the multicam model with stainless barrel and love it. I have read where some say it doesn't make sense to have the camo stock with the shinny barrel. I'm not concerned about it. Can always get some Camo Form fabric wrap to cover it if necessary. I did call Ruger to see about getting the black barrel that comes with the TDT model but they don't sell them separately. I bet they will have plenty of after market barrels out there in the near future.
And then there is always Cerakote. lol
