I think it is a good start for an Appleseed rifle for sure. We have been discussing this deal (which is very good) on the Appleseed Forums for a couple weeks.

Appleseed-specific positives: Good stock overall, grippy in hot weather, modular components are very good for fitting to multiple shooters, sling studs already installed. And you can use the gift certificate to buy a stock module. Honestly, if you are buying for the stock, receiver, and barrel, life is good.

Appleseed-specific negatives: The "upgraded" ghost ring sights are still sub-optimal for AS. They don't have the same repeatable and precise MOA-sized adjustments required for AS. Perfect for a plinker though. The included picatinny rails is fine for mounting a scope or you could replace the Ruger peep sight with the MINI200 Tech Sight and keep the rail and use the existing front sight.

Still think it is a good deal and starting point, but hope that helps folks considering how many mods to make from there. And not referencing other basic 10/22 mods (auto bolt release is very helpful, everything else is for preference).

I have one of the original appleseeds and don't like it. The nose is too heavy with the 18" barrel. I seldom shoot it.

Thanks for this summary. Would you mind posting a link for the Appleseed forum that you visit? Seems like a source of useful information.

Sure: https://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php

The “Road to Rifleman” heading has more detail and reviews of equipment, along with shooting skills, ammo, etc. it isn’t as specialized as Rimfire Central, but helpful and certainly civil.
