Okay obviously the 10/22 is the favorite. Now the question is, what model? (Carbine, tactical, sporter, etc)
Depends on the mods you want to do to it.
I would not buy an expensive model to only swap out the stock, barrel, and everything else. If you don't want to mod it the purchase depends on your uses and budget. All are good.
I have actually been buying parts first. Ill get the gun eventually. At this point all I need to find is a upper, lower, and some mags.
