Just a little something different for your perusal... I absolutely love Ruger rimfires. I'd built a 10/22 that I was very happy with previously, along with a MKIII SS Target that was a beauty. I sold the MKIII in a fit of stupidity a few years ago, and eventually decided to build a new one. I'd fallen in love with the heavy tapered barrel but did NOT like the tall front sight band. Convinced a talented gunsmith to cut and re-crown the barrel for me, and got to work on one. This little gem is a blast to shoot and has very good accuracy!
