Review: Magpul X-22 Backpacker Ruger 10/22 Takedown Stock

Magpul has been on an aggressive innovation design track for the last couple years with one product after another. One of the coolest products from this year’s lineup was the Magpul X-22 Backpacker Ruger 10/22 Takedown Stock. Magpul took all the great features and ergonomics of its awesome X-22 stock and created a light, packable version specifically for the Ruger 10/22 Takedown stock that allows for compact storage of the barrel and receiver.

Why Buy the .22 Long Rifle Cartridge?

A proven resource in creating a marksman is the use of inexpensive .22 caliber ammunition and .22 caliber firearms. The rimfire offers little or no recoil, minimal report and good accuracy. It is recognized that the rimfire is a good training aid for pure marksmanship, that is trigger control and learning sight alignment and sight picture. In today’s tight economy, we see both .22 caliber conversions and dedicated .22 caliber firearms pressed into service in training. With the high, and increasing, costs of training, .22 caliber conversion units and .22 caliber firearms appear to be a good buy.
