So I just got a brand new special edition Ruger 10/22 to use this summer for An Appleseed shoot. I looked over the standards and THE SPECIAL EDITION HAD EVERYTHING I WANTED TO PUT ON THE STANDARD. Sling mounts, Peep sights and a rail for a scope. Does anyone have one of these new rifles? This version does not have a barrel band. so got it all on sale for $219 same price as the regular price for the standard with no need to buy the extra parts. So far she seems to be a shooter.
