Rated 5 out of 5 by Jen86 My first gun. Amazing!
I am a 26 yr old woman and I received this gun as a gift for my 26th birthday. I go target shooting with my family every chance I get and this rifle is perfect for me. I even bought a couple of 25 round clips that make shooting this gun even more fun. It does come with a 10 round clip, but boy they go fast! This is a great gun for anyone - man, woman, child, big and small. Easy to clean and use! Ruger is a terrific brand!

This rifle has a track record that speaks for itself. These rifles are rugged, dependable, and easily upgraded.
The vast amounts of after market upgrades alone make this rifle a must own for any .22 user. This is a good rifle as is but with Tech sights, a decent red dot system, or scope you will elongate the sight length and drastically improve the accuracy.
Be aware that this is no "bench shooter's rifle". It is accurate but it is not a competition grade bench rifle. It is an absolute blast to shoot though!
I personally would opt for the "all weather" version with a stainless barrel and lightweight aluminum chamber.
This rifle will shoot almost all brands. Avoid Winchester Super-X and go with other makes, such as Federal Bulk Ammo or spend a little more for CCI for greater accuracy. The CCI Stinger rounds will increase velocity and punch.
I would like a more slender stock but that is not reason alone to give this rifle less than 5 stars.
This rifle is also very easy to disassemble for a very thorough cleaning and virtually every part can be upgraded or replaced from a variety of manufacturers.
I like these rifles so much I bought two. One with aperture sights like an M1 and the other with a tapco stock and red dot system. These rifles are a great buy and the after market mags are way better than the Remington options.

Most .22 cal rifles are very accurate. A novice with a little practice could easily shoot a 1 in. group at 25 yards. Most people use a 3-9 x 30 scope. I had a $40 redhead scope on mine for years and it was very accurate.
