Really the only time I can see ever breaking it down is to clean the barrel, and it seems like this creates more potential problems than benefits. I just wonder why they can't put a hole in the back of the 10/22 receiver to allow cleaning from breach to muzzle.
I'm sure it's for survival preppers or people who want something more portable, but there are already several rifles that fill that niche. Still, it's a 10/22 and I'm sure they will sell more than a few of them. I'll keep an eye on this one. Thanks for the heads up.
Interesting! The first rifle that popped into my mind when I saw this was the Henry AR-7. If I needed a take down .22LR rifle either of those would fit the bill nicely. As it stands I don't but love my stock Ruger 10/22.
