Ruger 10/22 @ Tractor Supply
« on: May 13, 2022, 11:41:03 PM »
Saw the Ruger 10/22 Pellet Rifle in the clearance aisle of the local Tractor Supply, marked down to $65.  The website shows them at $100. 

Is this at all related to the Crosman 1077?  The magazine looked the same.  The box mentioned SINGLE or double action...the double action only is the Crosman's weakest point imo.  Was tempted but did not leave with one.  Should I go get one and retire my 1077?

EDIT -- Just noticed the website shows $99.99, but also shows the local store price of $64.99.

 Way better than a 1077,I paid full price for mine when they hit the market, very accurate when one cocks the bolt before firing, but can deliver a decent spray n pray group also. Here is a 10 shot 10 yard group, .22 pellet pen next to group for size comparison.  8)

They 1077 and 10/22 are not related at all. They do not use the same clips or magazines, they just look similar.

Don't let the single action fool you. It is not light and crisp like you'd expect a single action to be. It's long and mushy, just lighter than the double action.

I am in the minority that prefers the 1077. The 10/22 is extremely rear-heavy, even more so with carts in (they go in the stock). The loading/unloading of carts is also unnecessarily complicated, and due to the design it leaves play in the back of the stock, such that it gives a little when you snug it up to your shoulder. The double-action trigger pull is very heavy (much heavier than a 1077), the single action is lighter but long and mushy. I prefer the double action of the 1077 to the single action of the 10/22, it's heavier but it has less travel and is more predictable.

I was able to detune my 1077 to get more shots per cart and a lighter trigger pull, I looked into doing something similar with the 10/22 but it looks way more complicated so I decided not to bother. That's another point in favor of the 1077.

I didn't notice a big difference in accuracy, both would group well for a few shots and then have a flyer, with several different pellet types. Both were definitely better than minute-of-beer can accurate from 15 yards, which is all I expect from CO2 guns.

The 10/22 is heavier and features more metal than the 1077, so if you're into realistic look/feel that is an advantage. I personally prefer lighter guns, and don't think cheap metal offers many advantages over polymer for many applications.

I don't think the 10/22 is a bad gun, and probably worth $65, I just personally prefer the 1077. I think someone mentioned haggling with the manager to get an even lower price on a 760 that was on clearance, so you may be able to try that. They were selling these for $50 around Christmas.

Thanks for the reviews, appreciate all the details.  Being fair at best at single action, and worse at double, is not inspiring.  I like my 1077 mostly, last time I used it I blasted a can 9 for 10 at 25 yards, so I guess Bargain Gate has just saved me $65, thanks!
