    Own one, it's an outstanding little rifle. I had a 10/22 and sold it to get the takedown.

    Barrel cut down to legal length, in a modified drag stock with a gun works stubby suppressor. Also fitted NDS iron sights, which are just awesome. I think there is a photo in my gun vise post.

    Holds zero really well through assembly and disassembly. No appreciable decrease in accuracy or velocity with the shorter barrel. I think the must with this is (unless you are going to put good iron sights on it) getting a really good QD scope mount/ rings so that you can take that off for packing down.

    It suits me as I travel a lot but other than that the application of it being takedown is somewhat defeated by restrictions on rimfire rifles on DOC land

    That's just my 2c, not even a little interested in selling it

    I have one, also cut right down to min length.
    Got a trs25 red dot sight on it and it seems to hold red dot levels of accuracy well, never tried it with a scope

    Not selling it!

    I doubt you would regret buying one

    Yeah I had a TRS 25 on it for a while and it worked well. With a Bushnell 3-9 x 40 on it, I didn't notice any POI shift after taking off and putting on the barrel a half dozen times. After faffing around with scopes for a while, now it just has the NDS iron sights on it and they are bad news for bunnies out to 50m
