Traded a new/unfired H&R "Ultra Rifle," in .30.06, Bull barrel, built in muzzle brake, Boyd's Grey, Green, Brown, Laminated stock, built in Picatinny rail, Simmons "Whitetail Classic," 6-24X50 AO scope from the shop I traded it in to. (With the original box.)

Traded for a new/unfired, Ruger SR-22 (.22lr) AR -15 style rifle, w/an added A2 handle carry sight, front and rear. (Long range/Short range apertures.) also an added Picatinny rail on top of the A2 Carry Handle. Nice set up.

Kept my Harris Bipod, he kept his Caldwell bipod.

Very nice. I'll shoot this, my other firearm was a 7-8 year "Safe Queen." No regrets.

Just added a 50 round Ruger magazine and a Firefield 3MOA Dot/Crosshair reticle Red/Green dot, just now off M/O.

Very happy. Went from something I have not shot since new, (7+ years ago) to something I will shoot often.

Way Happy. 👍😁

Opinions welcomed. I got exactly, what I went in for.

Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁

    Great! Nothing wrong with Simmons scope on a .22 rimfire. I have two.

    Traded the Simmons scope, in with the "Ultra Rifle," Brother.

    Just added a Firefield "Impact," 3 MOA/Circle/Crosshair reticle red dot, w/quick detach cam lock, to what I just traded for. (The Ruger SR-22)

    As well as a 50 round mag, (in addition to the 25 round mag I got with it.)

    Plus, I have several boxes of .30.06 ammo to trade for .270 and/or .308 ammo. 👍😁

    All that matters is that you’re happy with the trade. Enjoy the new Ruger.

    I friend of mine has one of those little Rugers, what a fun gun to shoot. I've been wanting one for a while myself.

    Nothin better than getting exactly what you went in for

    I think you did good. I would have made that trade. Have fun with it. I love all my 22 rifles.

    Thanks all.

    I inadvertently posted a Firearms related thread.

    I will go and hang my head, in shame now.

    Interesting. My model SR-22 came out in 2009. (Was discontinued after a couple years due to production costs.) New cheaper model came out, SR-22 ATI. My earlier model is much more metal, components made by Nordic Industries.

    What I find interesting about mine, is that it has a full length Picatinny rail, from the receiver to the front of the Monolithic Aluminum front handguard. The only ones (after research) that I have found, only have the Picatinny rail over the receiver. Some have a small 1-2" section over the front of the handguard for the "Fold up/down" sights.

    Mine not only has the full length Picatinny Rail, but it has extremely well made M16 A2 style Handguard sights. Front and rear. Also has a short Picatinny rail section mounted to the top of the carry handle.

    Ive got a Firefield "Impact" red dot 4 MOA, dot, circle cross hair optic coming for it, as well as a 50 round Ruger BX-50 magazine, to compliment the BX-25, I already have.

    The only ones similar to my Discontinued Model of the SR-22 are selling for $750-$899 currently on the auction side, (but) Without my full length Picatinny Rail or A2 carry handle sight set up. (For new/unfired ones.)

    I am quite happy. 😁

    Woo Hoo.

    *The later generation SR-22 ATI version (new) goes for around $450.
