I've loved the 10/22 takedown for a while, but when I saw the Marine versions with synthetic stock, plastic water resistant fitted case, for under $250? Fugeddabout it! I have found mine to be a mighty plinker right out of the case. (Cons, no room for scope. Fits one 25 round clip only.) I'm not affiliated with Palmetto State, but I thought this was a great deal when I got it a six months back and they have been out ever since.
