Canadian Centennial 10-22

Post by JAYDAWG » Wed Jul 15, 2020 8:01 am

Being a coin nerd along with my 10-22 addiction I have had this Canadian Centennial coin set for about 15 years, SO I figured I had better get the 10-22 to go with it!!
Workman's book says about 4000 Canadian's were made 1500 of the non checkered like this one the other 2500 being checkered stocks.
So, I guess I had better be on the look out for a checkered one now :shock:

Cheers,
JAY

Good going, those are pretty scarce. I love the Fingergroove sporter stock, best one Ruger ever made. JMHO

Glad you got it Jay. Did you get the box with it? I have had my pair since back in the 90's.
Good to hear from you today!

Hey, I think Canada made a $20 in gold for 1967 as well.

Chet,
A guy could buy a couple real nice Rugers right now for the price of a $20 Maple Leaf!!
