I recently purchased a .22 caliber Ruger, semi-auto rifle, model 10/22. I wanted an inexpensive, reliable 22 mostly for targets and some occasional ground squirrel population reduction. I’ve fired a couple thousand rounds through it . At a hundred feet it shoots a group of five at about 2″ using long rifle rounds. at 200 feet the same group is about 4″. Pretty much like you would expect. I’ve experienced some occasional jamming from both the stock 10 round clip and from the after-market Butler Creek 25 round clip. It usually occurs on the first or second round of a full clip. The jam is easily cleared by pulling back on the bolt. It doesn’t do it often enough to get me excited about the problem. I mounted a 4 power Bushnell scope which is a very good match for this gun. I would recommend this little, light weight .22 for anyone who wants to get by cheap with performance that is more than satisfactory for the investment. My eight year old grandson is a dead eye with the gun. It serves well for a youth starter gun. I paid $175.00 for the rifle (new).
