Our Assessment: The Ruger 10/22 platform is one of the most rugged, versatile, reliable, and well liked rifles ever produced, with unending options for customization and legendary out of the box accuracy. It is no surprise that an ocean of manufacturers produce aftermarket components for such a well-liked rifle. This is a Ruger 10/22 receiver with a Scottwerx Tommy Gun kit installed. Most of us are familiar with the Tommy Gun, but few would ever associate it with the 10/22 platform. The Thompson was developed during World War I when John T. Thompson realized the need for a close-quarters weapon for trench warfare rather than the cumbersome rifles the soldiers were issued. However, the prototype was completed, but by then WWI was already over. The Army and Marine Corps evaluated the gun and thought favorably of it, but did not make any large orders. While the military had purchased only small numbers, the gun was widely used by gangsters and was one of their weapons of choice. It was used in many bloody incidents including the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. This is a cool take on one of the most well-known firearms of all time and sure would be fun to shoot. This one has a bright bore with sharp rifling and looks like it was hardly ever used. If you want to train a young shooter how to nail some cans, this street sweeper would not only look cool but deliver lead as aimed. Please see our pictures and good luck!
