50th Anniversary 10/22 picture thread

I went to my favorite gun shop today, and was looking for a used 10/22. I really like them, had a take down model to start, and wanted a fixed stock model to maybe play with, try out maybe a BX trigger and some other goodies. Been a while since I messed with a 10/22, so I’ll probably get back on the bolt release mod an get this one to release when you pull the bolt back. OR maybe I’ll try some volquartsen or other brand parts. Don’t want to drop $1000 more on it, but would like to have some fun with this one.

Since both of my 10/22’s are 2014 50th anniversary marked. I know they aren’t the special edition ones, but I’m pretty proud of them.

One is a takedown model, bought it brand new for I think $315 from Dicks in 2016, and the newer acquisition I just picked up today is a laminated stock model with a UTG rail on it. $299 out the door.
I’m not sure I like the UTG rail on it, don’t know if it’s good or junk, but I sure like the rifle a lot! I’m thinking of putting my 4x scope on the laminated stock model, and keeping the TD with open sights for easy of storing it in my pack.

Anyway, I figured I really like the 50th anniversary models, so why don’t we start a picture thread on them? Here are my two beauties.

Well, mine's not the 50th Anniversary model, but she'd +50 years old - does that count? LOL!
This is my first 10-22, purchased in May of 1968 for $54.99 at Sears & Roebuck of all places! She's still a looker and a shooter. With a little care and a good diet, no telling how long she'll be shooting!

That’s very cool! Nice to see vintage ones still going strong!

The shop I got the one with the laminated stock from had an older one with the flat mag release on it, maybe from the 90’s but definitely older. I almost bought it since it was about $70 cheaper, but the stock had some areas where the finish was coming off, and I really fell in love with the laminate stock, and just cause it was a 2014 like my TD.

I'd wanted a stainless 10/22 International for a long time and the pieces finally fell into place in 2014. $300 new and I didn't even notice it was a 50th year until I looked at the box when I got it home. With Simmons scope, since replaced with Leupold Rimfire 2-7X.

Thats the mannlicher style stock. My local shop had 2 that style, I almost jumped on one, but it was $80 or so more than the one I got, and I wouldn't want to swap much out on it. I am starting to realize why 10/22 guys have so many.. Once you start building one, its hard to get one with everything you want, and then it's cheap enough to just buy another and start again lol. I say cheap enough.. That just means the base price is cheap, so it doesn't hurt as bad building another one lol
