    I bought a gun today.It is a ruger 10/22 converted to 17/mach2.It has a butler creek blk. stock,butler creek carbon fiber barrel,and nikon 3x9 silver scope.No trigger job as far as I can tell.The bolt handle is a big black knob{not original}.Its supposed to be all new parts according to guy at the gunshop.I paid 500.00 for the gun.What do yall think?Did I pay too much?



    Also ,can anyone tell me about this caliber?Muzzle velocity ect.


    thanx,10
     
  2. Probably for what you got I would say you didnt to bad.
    I really don't know alot about the 17's ,I just always figured for what I use small calibers for a .22LR is fine.

    You might go over to midway and see what all that would cost.

    But hey enjoy it.....

    Yea I'll play with it for a while and then trade it on something else.Its not goodfor much.My kids like to shoot it,Its pretty and weighs about 4 or 5 lbs.
     
  11. I think it might be a good little Beaver popper if the ammo wasn't so much more than .22 LR.
    But I wouldnt call them a pellet gun.

    If you do your own gun smithing you can beat that price by a bit. If you don't then the labor charges for the conversion add up. Converting a worn out 10/22 is cheap, if you can find one! I can give you some good advice on tuning the factory trigger to make it much more target rifle worthy.

  19. Gotta look into that 10/22 conversion deal. I've got a 10/22 that I don't shoot much anyway.
