Give the retail store a call. Many times what they show as being unavailable online will be available in the store. This is the same for their used guns. I can't say how many they have/had in stock because all of their long guns are displayed in racks on the floor and walls so that the customer can just pick up whatever they like to give it a looking over without having to get a salesman. When you find something you like, you simply take it to the counters and they grab one in the box from the back for you.

Thanks, gentlemen! I'll give those a look and see what works for me!

If you want a good bipod, Harris Quality, without the Harris price, Check out the Champion Bipod.

This is what I put on my Ruger american .243 and LOVE it. Pivots and swivels and locks in place.

I bought my 22 mag from Kentucky Gun Co when they were first made available for $249.00 with free shipping plus I paid my LGS $20.00 to transfer it to me. Put a 3x9 scope on it and its deadly accurate.

Cool guys! I'm glad you're all able to get the RAR! I am really digging this rifle. Fun!

Bought my 22 mag with 22 in bbl at Des Moines gunshow last Sunday for $245 + tax. Glad to see so many other shooters as excited about this little rifle as I am. Ruger's going to sell a boat load of these!

That's what I'm thinking...

Have you fired your 22mag? I wouldn't mind trying that caliber as well

Yes I have. I scoped it with a 3-9x40 Tasco that I had using some 22 dovetail rings. I sighted it in at about 50 yards, and I'm actually quite impressed. I have since removed the accu-trigger type safety ever, and clipped about 1 1/2 coils from the trigger spring, and what a difference in the trigger. Very crisp and perfect for a sporting rifle to me. I simply can't say enough good things about this rifle for the money spent.

Awesome! Sounds like you made the perfect modifications!

I've been looking at these also can't decide between lr. or mag. It will be mostly used to teach my kids to shoot. They are 4 and 5 now. Thinking about a fixed 4x just to keep it simple.

LR .... Way easier on the pocketbook (so shoot more). Easier on the ears. Great for learning. Good for varminting. I never did use any magnums when varminting or target shooting... My vote is .22LR. And use the fixed sights for learning. Move up to a scope later if desired. All my growing up years we didn't have scopes on our walking around trail guns in the woods, or shooting at cans, paper, pine cones, etc.... That's my opinion!

My daughter got her early x-mas present tonight and she was happy, the compact model. Range day Saturday.

So my other question, who has found what to do with the space in the stock. Someone has to design something to fit in there.

This is a nice rifle.

I have seen some folks stick some extra ammo and survival gear in there, but nothing is really needed.
