edited January 2013 in General Discussion
Wanted to share this unique Ruger 10/22 I purchased back a few months ago during a local RUGER sale that a large portion of the money made from the Ruger's bought went to a local home for Children. Ruger ran a small number of these 10/22's in factory dipped Mossy Oak camo and they also dipped two BX-25's for each gun that were made available the buyer of this camo 10/22. I "think", but not sure that this may be the first and only one of these type 10/22 Takedown's ever listed on GunBroker (I stand to be corrected)....Happy New Year Everyone.......Mark

    Danielgage - That is why I bought three - I have two boys (25 and 21) and the oldest one told me at Christmas that he really wanted an M&P pistol so that is what we got him - thus the reason for this one going up for sale......

    Montana - I tried to listen to other forum members talk about how LF does such a GREAT job with her pictures so I decided to give it a try.....Not as nice as one of her auctions BUT the more pictures I can provide to better the person will feel about bidding if they really are interested.......Thanks Mark

    Yes - I will provide a $25.00 shipping price ($15.00 off of the listed $40.00) to any active forum member that has at least 200 posts......In our small town the local UPS shipping store gets to charge what they want - because this is shipping 2nd day air they provided a range of $33 to $41 to ship within the US.....This forum is my family so I do not mind providing this discount......Mark

    MFI - Not sure - I am going to check. Thanks for asking - I truthfully have no idea - we were told 7 months ago when these went up for sale that they were "one of a kind - first time made in this style". That was told to everyone at a dinner with Toxy Haas (President of Mossy Oak and Mike Phifer - President of Ruger so that is why I said what I said - I also need to keepin mind that Ruger may have run a larger batch of these and only released a small number for those willing to pay the price because it was to help support a local Childrens Home.

    Those here on the forum and who I live and work with who know me know I NEVER want to mis-represent myself. I will check on this - and I mean it whan I say thank yoyu for providing this comment and pontential lead.....Happy New Year.....Mark

    I do not mean that in any way to say you are not telling the truth.I thought I saw those in one of their dealer flyers for sale.. It is possible they were just standard 10/22's as well . For some reason I thought they were take downs though..

    Here is a multi-cam one somebody has.. Ruger does quite a bit of 'exclusives" for different outfits..

    MFI - I did not mean for my response to be taken that way and I appreciate your follow up. You are right that Ruger, being a US based, American Gun Company, works with a variety of people and groups to grow their companies good name so you are right that there are other versions out there and there could also be others out there from this run that may have hit the market since this release. Again - I appreciate your intial post and your follow up.....Mark

    I have never seen one of those before. I am not sure why the 10/22 take-downs have went up so much with the threat of AWB. 2 months ago, I could have gotten the standard black/stainless one for $350. Now, ~$450 is starting rate for the black one.
    Fanatic collector of the 10mm auto.
