Excellent Bolt action 22lr!I purchased this gun on yesterday, and took it out to shoot today with sights only. Very accurate rifle, and easy to cycle due to the smooth Ruger American action. Shells eject with no problem whatsoever and with the Caldwell bipod added on it, it's a joy to shoot. The staff at the Olive Branch , MS store is the best.

Typical Ruger....excellent!This is the third American Rimfire in my arsenal. .22 WMR full size, .17 HMR compact and now the .22 LR compact. I ordered the long, high stock module for the two compacts. The flexibility of this firearm is unmatched. When my wife wants to shoot it or the HMR I install the short, high module. It takes all of 1 to 2 minutes. It then feels much like her Ruger American compact .243. The trigger on the RARs is very good and adjustable. I left the .22 at about 3lbs 14oz, how it came. The others are adjusted down to near 3 lbs. The bolts on all three started a tad unsmooth (not what I would term rough). After some shooting they smoothed out nicely. The short bolt throw is very nice!
My .22 LR is accurate with all brands I have tried. Believe it or not, it shoots cheap Remington golden bullets very well. I topped mine with a Nikon pro staff rimfire 3-9x40 BDC and checked out Nikons "spoton" web site for bullet drop. So much fun to shoot I am using more ammo than I need to! Also, I shoot rifles & shotguns left handed (pistols righty) so the tang mounted safety is addictive.
Price wise this rifle is slightly higher than Savage and Marlin. However, given Marlin's recent quality issues and Savage's strange feeling stock and trigger, you would not go wrong with the RAR compact! Make no mistake, the RAR trigger is NOT a Savage accu-trigger as some have said. I speak from experience after owning then selling a 93F .17HMR.

Worth every penny!I was in the market for another .22LR and did a lot of research on the internet before making a purchase. I decided on another 10/22. I had one before and loved it. But I wanted something different. I wanted something that I can have some fun with and teach my boys to shoot with so I got the American Compact .22.
Took it to the ranch last weekend and put about 500 rounds through it. Put a scope on it and put quarter sized groups on paper at 100 yards. We were pinging a 3" pipe at 300 yards! It is truly amazing. The trigger is amazing. The quality is amazing. I believe it is an under priced rifle and one that everyone should own.
Is it possible to use the extended capacity Ruger 10/22 magazines with this rifle instead of the standard 10 round mags?
