The ruger 10/22s generally need a bit of work or you can swap bits out to make a really good target 22lr with bits from Kidd. Kidds are probably the best semi you can find out there.
If you want cheaper option than this just buy a CZ or BRNO I've a 527 American and it shoots real well, and my best option as I can't get a lh anshutz 54 action unless I shell out multi k's for a anshutz fortner action 54.
So much hate on the 10/22! I'll be the contrarian here and say i love it. I slaughtered hundreds of bunnies with it. had a 3-9 ranger on it and i pulled off some long shots. Probably put several thousand through the barrel. Got a few stoppages after the 300 round mark without being cleaned, but that was from the amount of crap coming out of the ammo. Its a bit of a bitch to pull apart and clean, notably the spring....but I'd definitely buy one again.
