I bought a 10-22 off a guy yesterday for $120, he's trying to get enough $ to buy a 9mm. Say's the Ruger belonged to his father-in-law. A search gives it a born on date of 1974, I was 2. It is one of the best I've ever seen. I put the scope on it. It's going to be my daughters. Bluing is beautiful, rifling is shinny, stock is too, they don't make them like this anymore.
