I had really been wanting one of those takedown Ruger 10/22′s. Still do but I realize it isn’t the right tool for the job I have in mind. Basically I want to be able to shoot .22 with accuracy sufficient to harvest small game in as compact of a package as possible. Primarily I am looking at it as part of the dreaded bug out type setup where I can take less stuff than would be ideal. What I realized is that instead of a takedown rifle a bolt for the rifle I would already be carrying (or have on hand) makes more sense. That would let me shift the .22 rifle from the have to have pile to the nice to have pile but still keep the capabilities. Also the price of a bit under $ 200 would be nice.
Did some research and it looks like the CMMG kit is the way to go. IIRC Commander Zero has positive things to say about them but I am too lazy to find and link.
Anyway to folks who have conversion kits I have a couple questions:
1) What type of kit do you have and how do you like it?
2) What sort of accuracy are you getting? I am not looking for anything crazy just to be able to put small game into the pot at about 40 meters.
3) How close to the point of impact of your normal sights does the rifle shoot with the .22 conversion kit? For what I am thinking rezeroing wouldn’t really be practical.
4) Knowing what you know now would you buy a .22 conversion kit?
Thanks for any input. It is appreciated.
