I'd like to pick up a .22 rifle for target shooting, and I've been leaning towards the Savage Mark II FVT. It's got a bull barrel and peep sights, which I like. The stock is synthetic, but there are wood replacement options out there if I want to go that route evenually. I'm leaning towards bolt action over semi-auto, as I like the flexibility of ammo types that can be used with a bolt action rifle, plus it's the way to go if I ever get more serious about target shooting. The Mark II takes a 5 or 10 round magazine, which is handy. This particular rifle retails for around $400.
On the other hand, a friend of mine is willing to sell me his Ruger 10/22 semi-auto, which was given to him by his ex-wife's uncle along with several other guns. All I know about this particular 10/22 is from these three pictures that he took of it last week. It appears to have just basic rifle sights on it, and I'm not sure if it's drilled for mounting a scope or not. I'm leaning towards the Savage, but I'm curious about the 10/22.
Any thoughs as to what my friend's Ruger might be worth? I don't have any serial numbers, but it appears to be in decent shape. I have no idea what to offer him, and I'm sure he has no idea what it's worth.
