I wouldn't knock Kel Tec quality. I carried Kel Tec's as back up pistols for years and never had a malfunction. I trained hard with them and, when IDPA came around, I used, P11, P9 and P3AT in IDPA matches. They may be inexpensive, but they aren't cheap. Fellow competitors were surprised to see how accurate a P3AT could be considering how small it is.

I'm not saying they are bad but of all the ones I've seen compared to Rugers, Ruger build quality is superior.

I was looking at one the other day that was new. As I inserted the barrel, the action would close. Is that normal, or did I do something wrong. My 10/22 TD does not exhibit that behavior.

Some do it more readily than others, but the bolt shouldn't go home without some sort of bump. It was either that, or make the bolt release like a 10/22, and I am pretty sure most people would have hated that...

I have been shooting the crap out of mine lately, and just gave it it's first cleaning this AM.

I had a TRS 80 on it, and it was filling in the center mass at 25 no issue. Yeah not that hard. But just to get the optic sighted in. Going to AGC today to see what I can do with the optic at 50..... Posting up a range report here shortly....

I put a Vortex Viper on mine. Works great.
