At Camp Perry there are more of these good looking rifles for sale.
There were at least 10 to start.
No one has yet to do a shooting evaluation.
So stay tuned.

It would be nice to see a really good accuracy test done.

Had the chance to shoot one of these a week ago. It wasn't a true accuracy test, because I was just 'borrowing' it for a few minutes from a guy at the range. There may be a few different varieties from different companies, but the one I shot was the Kingston Armory Version. Basically a 10/22 style receiver set up in a Garand-type stock. Accuracy was what you would expect from a 10/22. I liked the sights and they reminded me of a suped-up better version of TechSights blended with our beloved Garand sights.
There were some other part modifications to make it look more Garand-like. This wasn't like the M1 Carbine copy where they just dropped a 10/22 in a carbine stock. The rifle was heavy and fun to shoot.

How expensive are additional Magazine or can just use 10/22 mags, albeit, it would be a little ugly to do so.

Initial testing.
Cleaned the bore to start.
Front and rear sight centered.
Did a zero at 50 ft to start.Had to move front sight flush with base on right side,rear sight left to second from last mark.
At 50 yds on bag rest using CCIstd velocity 1-1/2 group with 20 clicks up from bottom 6:00 hold.Shot 50'rds.Failed to feed 4 times and jammed up.
Trigger was very good.
Further testing needed to determine if ammo or breaking in is suspect.
Shot 50 more rds at 100 meters under less than ideal wind and light conditions.
At a ram silhouette swinger,6:00 hold,30 clicks up from bottom.Shot off bag rest
All 10 hits on target 1st group.Failed to feed once each 10 shot group,usually 5 or 6 shot.
The magazine is fixed to the floor plate.I bought 2 new Ruger 10/22 mags thinking they would attach to this floor plate,that is not to be.I have not tried the factory Ruger mags without the floorplate.Next test.
I also purchased a Weaver 10/22 scope mt.I am not sure if there are screw holes under the M1 type sights and that base can be removed to do so.
Hoping that it is not permanent like the floorplate and magazine.
Once scope is mounted( if possible) a more thorough ammo and accuracy test will be done,also the Ruger mag test to see if that's part of fail to feed problem.
So far I am very pleased with this rifle.
The fit and wood are excellent.It has heft of a real rifle no toy.
Stay tuned.

Part 2
I have never owned nor shot a Ruger 10/22.
Something I noticed was the bolt does not stay back on last shot.
After removing the magazine floor plate there is a slide that can be pushed that will hold the bolt open,it's not visible with floorplate in place.
Scope mounting;there are screw holes for mounting a scope under the rear sight base.Some modification of the Weaver scope base is required as the forward portion of mount overlaps the wood.I removed 3/8"of the mount just forward of the weaver mt groove.I next installed a set of 1" rings for an Anshutz that fit the narrower dove tail on the mount.The weaver groove might work also.
Stay tuned.

Clarification on 100 meter testing.
The silhouette swingers was a half size Ram.
As previously noted the rifle was shooting very far right with centered rear sight,adjusted front and rear sight to hit center hold.
After mounting the Leupold 6.5x 20 EFR scope.
Initial shots were very far right also and low.
Using all available left windage and up elevation the rifle was still 2 feet right and a foot low.
Since any testing beyond 40 yds was impractical,group testing of ammo was done at this distance.
I could have probably shimmed the mount to accommodate for elevation and maybe installed Burris posi rings inserts to correct windage but did not.
There was no cleaning between groups or any foulers of next ammo between groups.
Ammo results;test target was a 1" grid target and based on that for measurements.
10 shot groups
CCI std velocity 1-1/4
SK std plus 1"
SK rifle match 9 shots in 1/2" with 1 shot 1/4" lower
SK HV 1-1/4
Eley Club 1-1/2
Eley match extra 2"
Win HV 8 shots 1-1/2 with 2 fliers increased to 3"
REM HV 2"
FED HV 1-1/4
Using Ruger factory mags helped with failure to feed and jams but not 100 percent of the time.
I will inquire the manufacturer about the extreme far right problem.
In conclusion I like the rifle very much,the trigger is perfect.
I now will disassemble the rifle,clean and lube thoroughly and look for possible barrel contact and stock fit.
If anything arises in that respect I will post.
I hope this helps anyone interested in this rifle.
