Its A 22lr for plinking and small game hunting, most of the people that use it don’t know what a good trigger is.
If it goes Bang when they want it too is all that matters.
and Ruger 10/22s do that better than any other similar
priced semiautomatic. just saying

I bought my 10/22 back in 1973 for $49.95 Brand New; after three weeks the trigger failed. I took the rifle back to Wolfes and their gunsmith put a new trigger in the rifle, it was from the .44 mag carbine. I still have the rifle and it works great, no trigger problems , just a few bruises from my 4 sons.

Idk, I must be a noob gun owner or something because I feel that the trigger on my 10/22 is fine. Modding a .22 makes no sense to me anyway. Too small of a caliber. .22’s are just for fun and for hunting small game. I guess if SHTF you can kill humans, or possibly aliens with the .22, but I much rather bring my 7.62×39.

Wild Bill

@Steven P, If the SHTF, a person wounded by a .22 takes eleven personnel to evac treat that person. The dead are noted on the map and policed up by graves registration later. And don’t over look the .22 LR training role.
If the SHTF, lots of “grandpas” would be training the follow on forces.

The Mossberg Plinkster is the most accurate 22 I’ve ever owned and I’ve owned a few….i think I paid $117.00 at Walmart….with a cheap 4X scope its deadly on tree rats.

I beg to differ about the factory 10/22 trigger. It is more than satisfactory for the casual or beginning shooter. It is an altogether accurate rifle, able to take small game, plink, and put credible groups together on paper. It is fun for youngsters shooting at reactive targets. It also is a good first rifle to learn gun safety. It certainly can be modified to one’s desires and Ruger as well as many aftermarket providers can fulfill any want for mods. I have two 10/22’s, a Marlin model 60 and several CZ rimfires. I like them all. My attitude us… Read more »


There is absolutely nothing wrong with Ruger triggers… I’ve owned Ruger 10/22’s longer than most of these pundunt impostures have even been alive… and hunted, killed , and eat countless small game with them… I have also shot many top name brands of 22’s for over 50 years… including all those mentioned, even Browning… My personal choice is Ruger 10/22!… Including several I have purchased for my 3 sons… Also, One more thing: I have never had one complaint from anybody I personally know that ACTUALLY HUNTS with Ruger!… EVER!… Others yes… BUT not Ruger… So for my choice, it’s… Read more »


Opinions do vary. I too have hunted with Ruger, Marlin, CZ, and Mossberg .22’s. All are good firearms but the quality of the triggers vary considerably. If your interest is to custom-build a semi-auto .22 and price is no barrier, then Ruger is the way to go. If you prefer to buy and use a firearm that handles and shoots well right out of the box, Ruger is not the way I would go. I actually sold my 10/22 and put the money into my most recent purchase, a CZ 452 with a Nikon Scope. Choosing to sell the Ruger… Read more »


I agree 100% with you. I still have my first rifle bough when I was 16, a 10/22, I am 64 years old now and that Ruger has never failed to work , fire or bring home game AND punch the bullseye ANYTIME I felt like it…. And THAT was a shitload ! All done with the bone stock trigger, the gun is STILL as it was produced. I never had an iota of trouble with the trigger or anything else for that matter. For and all around trigger it was fine, may not have been a target/competition grade but… Read more »


I notice that Ruger is still trying to sell some of the firearms they manufacture with the notoriously bad trigger. It makes no sense to spend the Ruger asking price on a 10/22 only to then have to spend well in excess of $100.00 to buy a decent replacement trigger and still do the replacement work yourself. Buy a brand new Savage model 60 for less money that has a larger magazine, and one of the best stock triggers on the market. Read the reviews of the Model 60 and see if it will work for you. My guess is… Read more »

You mean Savage Model 64 a 60 hasn’t been available new since the 70’s.

Aftermarket support of the Ruger alone trumps the slightly better factory trigger on the Savage.

Last I checked a Savage Model 64 came with a 10 rnd mag just like a 10/22 and Ruger has factory 25 rnd mags available.

Matt Sturdivant

I agree with both. I have a Savage 64 the trigger is okay. Im just beginning in shooting and it’s been a while since I shot a 10/22. I do wish the Savage had a larger mag available. Even a 15 would be nice.


Thank you. I stand corrected . . . it is the Marlin Model 60 to which I meant to refer. It is the better “out-of-the-box” firearm. I’ll give one thing to the Ruger – it has far more bells and whistles that can be added to it; however, it’s “out-of-the-box” trigger is the poorest I’ve ever seen. Of all of the possible places to cheap-out on the customer, the trigger is the worst.


Threaded barrel FAIL


Yep, I would have loved to see it as a takedown with the shorter .920″ threaded barrel.
