I highly recommend one
I bought one for a truck gun and I don't intend to ever put a scope on it
they work great. When you re-assemble it, the instructions tell you to cycle the bolt a few times before loading and firing.
I guess to make sure everything is lined up correctly
it is everybit as accurate as any other of my 10-22s
I think the I will get a Williams rear peep site though. They mount on the reciever and are supposed to be awesome
The only thing I don't like about any of the Ruger 10-22 synthetic stocks is that there is not an easy way to mount a rear swivel mount
I actually took the buttstock cap off of mine and drilled a hole in the stock and when I threaded the swivel stud in, I built up the inside of the threads with JB Weld to give it a good strong mount
I think Ruger should put molded mounting points in those stocks like Marlin does.
but who am I for them to listen to?
