Ruger 10/22 USA (Olympic) Rifle

I have been looking at a 10/22 that is in a local shop NIB and the price is $392 OTD, but not sure I like the color combo. Does this gun need a trigger job to be a shooter or is this a real out the box target gun that is ready for competition?

The reason I am looking at it is for the grandson to use when he gets older. Ok he is only 3 1/2 now and I plan on maybe breaking it in for him.

It sounds like you need the heavy barrel version. I have one of those and it is/was very accurate out of the box. Now that I have a few thousand rounds through it ( YES, you'll need to "break it in" for your grandson) it is even better.

You could build your own custom for about the same money if you like doing that sort of thing. The Olympic model has the target barrel, but I recall it does not have a match chamber. It should have a better trigger than a run of the mill 10/22. It can be greatly improved, with reworked oem or after market parts.
I have just under 500 in my current 10/22, that's figuring labor at .10 cents an hour.

I used the oem release and added a 5.56 bullet. drilled and tapped with 10-32 stud.
The charging handle is from a 22magnum.
I machined a new safety button and knurled the ends.
A aftermarket straight leg trigger with stop.
Added a setscrew to the sear to control pre-travel.
Tried several different trigger return springs, ended up with a modified oem setup. Were the return plunger rides on the back of the trigger I added a steel setscrew, radius the face so I have a small contact area, steel on steel.
Trigger pull is a crisp 1lb 8 oz.
I jeweled the bolt, radius the end, set head space and added a roll pin above the firing pin for added control of movement.
I also added a setscrew to each side of the receiver that locks the trigger group in position.
I made a bedding pillar and bedded the stock with jp weld.
After selling the oem barrel and stock I had a hundred bucks in it. Two hundred for the Fajen stock and GM bull barrel off e-bay. One fourteen for the Muller AVP, forty bucks for Talley rings and about forty in miscellanies parts.
A fun build that exceeded my hopes in accuracy.
