a limited edition laminated stock Ruger 10/22 (I like laminated stocks..they have more personality than composites) or a beautiful Smith & Wesson model 64 with a 3 inch barrel ?
I bought my dad one of those Wal Mart jobs 9 years ago..he loves itTo me the only 10/22 that even begins to approach a S&W is the old "International" model which had the full length stock (which some call a "Manlicher").
but what if the Porsche and the pick up truck cost the same ? also it was the only S&W in stainless I could find for $280That's like asking whether you want a Porsche or a pickup. A classic SW is a work of art. I might argue your choice in the Smith line
