Mine aren't quite that old but I'm not too far off. Of the two 10/22s I still have, one was purchased new in the early 70s and the other new in the mid 70s (the one that's no longer stock). I did have another that I bought used in the early 80s (in very poor shape) that I refurbished, used for a couple of years and then sold to buddy who wanted it badly. All three trouble free for tens of thousands of rounds and good shooters.
My guess is that if someone is having problems with a 10/22, it's either due to it being a newer incarnation of the rifle (of which I've no experience) or what's most likely, due to the ammo being used.
