Ruger 10/22 Carbine Model 1256 First Look

With over 5 million built, the Ruger 10/22 has got to be one of the most commonly owned guns in America. That being said, it has been years since I’ve had my hands on a 10/22.

I’m excited to say that today’s inbound shipment consisted of this Ruger 10/22 Carbine Model 1256. We’ve recently had some request for 22LR related product testing, so this 10/22 is going to help out tremendously. But from a more selfish standpoint, I’m hoping that this will be a firearm that my kids will take an interest in. They are still pretty young and get warn out quickly when shooting AR style rifles.

Anyway, I thought you might enjoy a first look at this 10/22.

I’m still a bit undecided on the optics I want to use for this Ruger 10/22. In the meantime, it will probably do us all some good to get back to the basics of using standard rifle sights.
