I bought my 10/22 for around $50 at a Woolworth’s at the Eastland Mall in Columbus more than 40 years ago. I still love it, and I could not possibly figure how many thousands of rounds have been run through it in that time.
Today they are $209.98 at Dicks (“Sale $50 OFF”). I see them advertised for more used,,,,,,,,those must be upgraded models. That they can do it for $209.98 is, IMO, a tribute to American manufacturing.
