What’s up Shooters,

I had a chance to play around with my 10/22 Takedown this weekend and I am really liking this rifle. I started out at 50 yards with 3, 10 round magazines. Between each magazine I would take the gun down into its two halves and reassemble to see if there were any problems with consistency.

100 yards

Using the factory iron sights, I was able to manage a 3 5/8 inch group with shots landing high and a little right. I then took a new target out to 100 yards and using the same procedures managed a group just over 6 inches with the bulk of the shots landing to the right and slightly high of center. I think this is decent accuracy out of the box, not haven taken anytime to zero the rifle. Ammo used was Winchester SUPER-X 22LR Plated Hollow Point, 40gr.

The factory sights are a bead and notch setup. I’m not a fan and plan on replacing them with a set of Williams Ace In The Hole sights. The Ace In The Hole features a fiber optic front with a peep rear integrated into a scope base and is available from Shop Ruger.

Overall, I’m very happy with the Takedown.  I plan on upgrading the trigger for a lighter, crisper break and adding a red dot or low magnification optic.  My goal for the Takedown is to keep it streamline and not add too much bulk.  I feel that adding a high magnification optic might ruin the pack-ability of the Takedown.

What would you do to the Takedown if you had one?  Please let me know in the comments below.
