Looking to get a 10/22 so I have something I can shoot all day without going bankrupt. I don't know shit about modding them, or best bang for the buck for accurizing them. The only 22 I've ever shot was 50 year old single shot bolt action...don't even know who made it. Accurate as fuck but not tons of fun to shoot. I don't much give a fuck what it looks like, actually the uglier the better, that way I don't worry about baby-ing it. I'll probably scope it and it will be used mostly for range plinking at 100 yards & less. So... cheap ass synthetic model, swap out the barrel for a Green Mountain or similar and have a reasonably accurate rifle?
