My new favorite toy... And tool



This is my Ruger 10/22 Stainless, with an EoTech 512 mounted up on the receiver. This run was just for the camera, and actually a bit SLOW. Just under 3 seconds. I made 3-4 runs under 2.75 seconds on the plate rack!

This gun shoots ANYTHING. I had 2 stovepipes in almost 1000 rounds of shooting in an afternoon. The EoTech swaps back and forth effortlessly between my 10/22 and my AR. With no change in zero. And they BOTH hit POA/POI at 15 yards, which is my primary distance for both.

We got bored tearing up the plate rack, and switched to shotgun hulls. I can shoot the brass bases on 12-Gauge hulls at 15 yards offhand with this little gun with the EoTech... Which is basically a human eye-ball sized target...

This isn't my primary defensive gun by any means, but if required, it will keep my dinner table stocked with small game protein if the need arises!

I understand an old wood-stocked Ruger 10/22 with an EoTech is a strange combo... But this black synthetic/stainless version looks right at home... And it works incredibly well!

God this is fun.... Trying to maintain a 10,000 round stockpile of 22 is going to be hard.

I love mine. I have more fun with it than most of my other guns. Be careful with upgrades though, I easily put in $1,000 or more into mine. Green mountain blued 20inch fluted barrel, Hornet trigger pack and KIDD jeweled bolt assembly, hogue stock (modified), mueller 4-16x50 illuminated with butler creek flip ups, v-block, blackhawk cheekrest(not pictured), weigand combat rings/base, harris bi-pod and a sling. I was finally satisfied with it until I realized I just put this much money in it and have to shoot good ammo. Then I had to buy that....heed my warning lol.

Yeah... I've though about adding all the toys, and your 10/22 can quickly out-pace your AR in dollars!!!

But this one is (aside from my own bolt-hold-back dremel mod) is bone stock... and the EoTech was $300 4 years ago!

This one will remain a tool!
