Here are five overlooked semi-automatic rifles that were both extremely popular and historically significant back in their heyday.
Priced as low as $500, they have been overlooked almost entirely by a generation of shooters.
The Ruger 10/22 is one of the most popular and reliable rifles in the marketplace … and it has been for along time. Sootch00 has reviewed, rebuilt, and re-purposed the 10/22 in several videos over the years.
Today, he’s taking the Ruger and turning it into a “tack driver” on the range. His goal is to complete this project as inexpensively as possible. So, first things first:
Traditions™ Firearms announced the shipment of their new Crackshot rifle. Marketed as one of the safest guns available with a Dual Safety System, this single shot .22 cal (or 17HMR) rifle is ideal for small game hunting or just plinking.
Legal in all (most) jurisdictions, the Crackshot rifle is great for a beginner or as your truck gun. It’s lightweight, easy to carry, and comes with a 1 piece base already mounted so you can easily install your favorite scope.
Known mainly for their black powder muzzle-loaders, TF will not be offering this rifle on their website. Distributors only.
