Title: Ruger 10/22s on sale at Dicks $219.98 Is this a "Good Deal"?
Post by: Mossy22 on September 06, 2019, 06:01:41 PM
Looking at getting an extra rifle to use as a loaner for our Troop.  Not sure if that $219.98 price is a good deal for a 10/22?  Also going to the gun show in Largo this weekend, so I'll see if I get blessed with a used one before hitting the big box store.

You may want to look at this one in Deals and Steals thread first.

Hmn... I can't access that link. Also, can't see even see a "Deals and Steals" thread anywhere on the forum.  Secret Thread double-probation anti-spammer protection mode maybe?  (But now how will people find out about that amazing work from home part-time job that pays $2000 an hour, sign up today!?!)

Thank you both for the heads-up.  Looks like a better set-up for Appleseed with the ghost ring sight.  Also the plast... eh-hem, polymer stock might be a little more abuse tolerant than the standard wooden stock.  Assuming the "enclosed $25 Ruger store certificate" is still valid (hello, extra mag) the net cost even after the shipping/transfer fees looks pretty comparable to the Plain Jane version.

There are better deals if you look.

That said, I would rather gnaw off my trigger finger than give them one dollar.

I got one from PSA. There's a $25 coupon for the Ruger store included in the box. I used it to order a short pull, high rise stock module. With shipping, the total cost was $25.95. I put the remaining $0.95 on my credit card.  I'm putting a Vortex scope on it and figure the short pull will work in most loaner situations. If not I can put the long length of pull low rise module it came with back on and add foam and vet tape to build up the cheek. There are a lot of upgrades you can do to it but right out of the box it is functional with the addition of an extra mag and sling. If you want to use "real" peep sights I suggest Tech Sights.--dg

Regarding https://palmettostatearmory.com/ruger-10-22-22-lr-mans-best-friend-collector-series-rifle-od-green-31115.html

Just an update: PSA is back down to $199 on their website as of today.  Shipping to Tampa Bay area was quoted at $17.  However, PSA also has them listed on gunbroker.com as a "buy it now" for $209 but with free shipping.  Florida is not on their posted list of states for which they collect sales tax, but you may wish to double-check that before purchasing.

Also.... their Gunbroker listing states they have ONE THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED AND SIXTY SIX of these currently available, yikes. Palmetto State ARMORY indeed.     

(Please Note: Sorry if this info was already covered in the Deals section, but I can't see that part of the forum yet.)

off subject slightly..but has anyone tried to use a AR National Match peep replacement on that sewer pipe of a rear sight? Be a lot cheaper than replacing it a TecSight.
