newer ruger 10/22 materials
I was about to purchase a 10/22 when I noticed that the ring around the barrel and stock is now plastic. I only assume the receiver is powder coated aluminum.(Or is it?) I put the rifle down upon my discovery, so I didn't check out the rest of the gun very well. I've just nearly gotten over it now, and am still considering buying one. Are there any more surprises in store? I could go back to the gunshop and take a better look, and still overlook something. That is why i'm asking you guys. Any help will be appreciated. thank you very much.
