I have to agree with Hawg as my experiences would dictate. I have two 10/22 rifles that will shoot sub-1/2 inch groups at 50 yards but the only original parts are the receiver, bolt and trigger group. Both were done for less than $300 each but that was some years back. Out of the box they were both more scatter guns than rifles. I had a similar experience with a Ruger Model 77 so I don't even pause to look at Ruger rifles when I'm in a gun store.
