The Unicorn

Sure enough, my first choice for a Ruger long gun is the 10/22 I-TAC 1296. My FFL so eloquently informs me it’s hard to find. A “Unicorn” as he calls it.

My first question is, why is this so hard to find? Are these out of production?

Secondly, how does the I-TAC compare to the S&W M&P 15-22 Sport?

Thanks in advance!

I do not need one but in getting a 10-22 for one of my grandsons I do not remember seeing one. in several Nj large gunstores. Yes we have gun stores in NJ.

The bigger search revealed none available on gunbroker. Keep searching the big gun sites and they will show up there first (typically) as the big guys will get their hands on them first.

Yep. I have searched high and low on all the sites, even gunbroker. There was only one listed on GB. Everyone is out of stock. I’ve even searched the Ruger forums and no discussions since 2013. Kinda crazy. I ran across this deal today on gun.deals and wondered how they compare. Would love to hear from some who have owned or shot these rifles. Too young hear to post a link but see below

Lots of stocks and chassis for 10/22. Good luck hope you fine your unicorn at the right price.

if you have a 10/22 stainless w/threaded barrel, you can swap out the stock for the ATI Strikeforce stock for a little over a Franklin:

Its just a stainless 10/22 with a ATI stock.

Its a unicorn because of low sales, therefore low production numbers! Not worth the hassle of trying to find one. Just go buy a 10/22 with a threaded barrel and order the ATI stock. Problem solved!!
