I recently sold an old Spanish K98 Mauser. It really wasn’t in the greatest shape, just wanted to get rid of it. Got over 300 for it and some old surplus ammo. Was more than happy with that. So I decided to turn it into a plinker. Decided on a Ruger 10/22 with a stainless 16 inch barrel. Kinda wanted the takedown model too. I know they are made, but out of stock every where. Why are these things so hard to find? Am I missing something?
And is there a better option out there besides the 10/22? I haven’t looked into .22 rifles in a long time.
