I'd probably go with the Ruger too.
Well from word of mouth for what that's worth, when I was at the gun shop, I talked to 2 different people. They both told me that Colt .22 AR type were "junk". One guy said he bought one, and had nothing but problems with it.
The other guy told me that he'd bought the Ruger and loved it with no problems and that also any attachment's/accesories/parts was easy to get.
And back to tricking out a 10/22, I had one years ago and was wanting to up-grade it a bit. I bought a synthetic stock for it (can't recall what brand it was now as I didnt have it that long) for the fact that the (pre-formed) tactical rail on it...well went to mount a scope and changed it a few times.
After the last time, it was all marred up with the scope ring impressions.
I put the original stock back on it and had the (junk) stock sitting for a long time and end up giving it to my nefew...felt bad for even giving it to him. It needed to be destroyed as it almost was after mounting and re-mounting scopes. I wish I could remember the brand on it?
