I love the paint job you did on yours BTW. That's some cool tinkering.

I just picked up my compact .22lr today. Can't wait to take it out.

Exactly as to why to place gear in the stock. Unused real estate.

I fired the rifle today and it gets better as you put rounds through it. Very nice for the money and my daughter loves it. Very accurate with the iron sights.

I also was thinking about that unused space in the butt of the rifle. Easily accessible and enough room to place gear. I just haven't figured out what to put in there...

@HappilyAddicted: Nice setup! Have fun!

Video Review

My local gun shop Keene's / Guns For Sale Online - Kentucky Gun Co. did a video review on this rifle. It seems like its pretty high quality for the price. I guess its neat how the 22LR will take the BX-25 mags, but is it really useful on a bolt action? I do own one for my 10/22 takedown and love hicap on the semi

That was one of the first videos I saw on the rifle. This, and GunBlast.com's review. It is neat that the American will take the BX-25. I am happier that I can use my other BX-1s with it. I do love higher capacity magazines for the 10/22! FUN!!

Thanks Neon. Trying to find time to go to the range hasn't been easy. Finally going to try her out tomorrow

I'd expect Ruger to chamber the RAR in .17HMR at some point... maybe next year?

Bought that cheap weaver 3-9 scope from PSA, comes w rings. Will they bolt straight on to the receiver?

Also bought a cheap NCstar bi pod from local shop $30

Cool! Sounds like you're ready to take out some varmints and targets! Show it off when you have it set up!

Wow just saw one of these the other day at the new Academy Outdoors store that recently opened up in Flowermound. It looks like it was the compact model though. They also had the 22 WRM model as well . Both were priced $269.99.

I caressed and fondled the compact model and found it felt good in the hand, just seemed a little on the short side for my comfort level. I will definitely be looking for one in the standard size. The stock seemed okay but I am not that high on it and would definitely like to find a aftermarket stock of some type.

I would have bought it thursday night except I just bought a Mossberg MVP so I am a little over budget this pay week. But its nice to see a great bolt gun for a great price finally in 22 rimfire and I suspect one will be joining my collection very soon.

Hey, LunaticFringeInc! I am glad you liked it and enjoy your new MVP! Those look sweet! I have the compact and really like it. The stock is a bit short, but you can buy the modular inserts to make it longer for $20 which is nice. I figure this will be good for my son and myself... maybe my wife, too I've been using the compact insert and it works... but I would also like it longer. I find it to be a real sweet shooter. What's not to like?

Neon Horse - I bought the full length high comb insert for my compact. If you really need the longer stock, and many people will, it's works out great. To tell you the truth though, I like the looks and balance better with the compact insert. The compact works for me, but I'm only 5'7".

I'm glad to hear it, rman! I like the looks and feel of the compact much better as well! It's working for me now, but I should definitely get the insert. I think it's a rifle well worth its money!
