Quick show of hands…how many of you own a Ruger 10/22? Wait, maybe it’d be easier to ask how many of you don’t own a 10/22. There’s a good reason that it’s the most-owned .22LR rifle in, well, the universe. It’s simple, reliable, fun, easy to shoot, and infinitely adaptable. Ruger offers dozens of variations on their own and there’s a virtual industry built around aftermarket customization of the guns.

    • I didn’t own one until a black Friday special a year ago.
      Bright pink! For my daughters.

      I do like my Marlin 60, but Ruger has kept improving.

      • I don’t own a 10/22. I have shot them, and like them fine. I’ve just tended to be more of a Marlin 60 guy. I own/or have owned three Marlin 60s, and one Marlin 795 (aka Washington assault rifles).

        For plinking purposes, I’d rather fill the tube than fill magazines.

        I’ve heard both the 10/22 and Marlin 60 listed as the top selling 22lr. I’d bet the Marlins might have been more popular earlier on, and the 10/22 more recently. Grand total, I don’t know.

        People like the Ruger magazine system. People also like to customize their 10/22s. I don’t want to customize my 22lr. I just want something inexpensive that works great. The Marlin does both.

        • “There’s a good reason that it’s the most-owned .22LR rifle in, well, the universe.”

          Uhh, yeah. 5MMish Rugers 10/22s v. 11MMish Marlin 60s.

          So, in what f-tard universe is 5MM more than 11MM? Damn, I’m so tired of transparent nonsense from this bunch of joke-ass hacks posing as ‘writers’. You may like the 10/22, and that’s fine. But it’s sold less than HALF of the 60, so get the F over it. Lying doesn’t make it so.

          Repeat this utter garbage myth all you want, I’ll be repeating the truth – the 10/22 is a second place finisher (by more than half), if you’re speaking of popularity.

  1. Will there be a Washington State Fanatical Assault Weapon I-1639 commemorative edition? With the quicky quicky fast shooting semi-assault action and fasty-pully trigger? And the rotary death-spewing clipazine?

    Maybe a non-rifled version with an oversized bore that you can slip a rifled bore liner accessory into. So it’s a “firearm” and not a rifle, until you make it one yourself. Could call it the “Up Yours Allen-Bloomberg-Gates-Hanauer Edition.” It would sell out the pre-orders within minutes of announcement.

  2. “Also included are a Third Edition Ruger Collector’s Series “Man’s Best Friend” metal street sign, a “Man’s Best Friend” dog tag, and a $25 gift certificate.” Does Ruger know that 10 year olds can’t purchase their product? Seriously.

    • They introduced it in time for your 10 year old to ask for it for Christmas.

      I got a BB gun when I was 8, a bow when I was 10 and a 12ga pump when I was 12.
      Had to buy my own .22.

  3. Speaking of the marlin 60, last I checked sales were more for it than the 10/22? I’ve had two 10/22’s and getting another (50th anniversary) with taxes, gave the one I built to my niece last christmas, still have my folder. I’ve had and sold three model 60’s weather it be marlin or glenfield, I think where this was written wrong is that the 10/22 is #1 in removable magazine semiautomatic .22, the marlin 60 has been around longer if I’m not mistaken, and sales overshadow that of the 10/22 simply due to time ( and probably price…)

  4. The last Ruger collectible I bought was a limited run. But it sold so good that they went and produced more which killed it’s collectible value. If I buy another “collectible” if will be for shooting only.

  5. I’ve read that the Marlin 60 has sold more, though the 10/22 is probably 2nd.

    I own the Collector’s Series 2nd Edition, which cost me $300 to 320. This one is listed at $399. They are exactly the same as far as I can tell. Look under “New Rifles” to find it at

    It’s very light at 5 lbs., though muzzle heavy since it has a steel barrel and a very light plastic stock. I like it very much, and the only tiny complaint is that mine has a ghost ring aperture that is 0.093 inch which seems a bit large. I’d like to try one around 0.065 to 0.075. Given that, it helps quite a bit to cock your head and neck backward an inch or more, making the ring aperture appear smaller.

    I put either a Bushnell TRS-25 red-dot on it or a Nikon Target EFR scope. Three sight options, what fun! The TRS-25 combo is excellent for shooting small reactive steel. I can shoot in the mid 90’s% or better on Hill-23 targets at 50 yds. with the Nikon and a bench and good ammo.

    Last range visit I shot it at 200 yds. Can’t expect much at that range, but I put 85% or so in a 1 ft. circle.

    I’d buy another one if they came out with an aluminum barrel version.

  6. I see several comments about the Marlin 60. Ruger makes a decent .22. I have one. But a standard 10-22 is a bit small for a full sized individual like me. I’m 6-1 and go 235. The Ruger, a very good and functional firearm, fits me more like an m1 carbine.

    The older model 60’s were built more ‘man’ sized. Longer barrels, longer stocks. Both work as well as a .22 needs to.

    What I like about the Ruger is the magazines. I like the detachable mags and that’s the point that sold me. Just like the position of the safety and slide release sold me on the mossberg 500.

  7. Is this really collectible? I have two 10/22s I consider collectible,one has a three digit serial # the other a four digit one. Both mint. That’s collectible. This one not so much.

  8. I hope this becomes a standard edition 10/22 from now on. Moving the rear sight to the back of the receiver is going to add to the sight radius which never hurts in improving accuracy. I also like the pic rail on the receiver, gives more options when mounting an optic.

  9. Yeah, I think this should be a standard model.

    Except: Shrink the GRing aperture to maybe 0.070″ and make the Picatinny rail a -20 MOA rail, for long range shooters.

  10. I’m glad to see these are back. I have a second series and I think the modular stock and ghost ring sights are the most useful configuration. I wish Ruger would just make it a standard model so I can get one any time. I think these are more valuable for utility than rarity and they make great Appleseed guns. I hope the street price is close to the $250 I paid back in 2015

  11. I would like to know where you can purchase the front and rear sights on this particular model. They seem much better than the original on the carbine model!
