Hello to All!

Just bought an XT-22 LR (and joined this forum). Nice looking hardwood laminate stock, good weight and narrow stock. My inspection evaluates fit-'n-finish at 90%. Pretty good for <$200.

Unlike the Ruger 10/22 (which I have on backorder - I'll be lucky if it's a Christmas 2013 arrival), there is very little information out there to be found. No information, no aftermarket upgrades, no nothing (except peep sights).

Shot today, and am not fond of the factory iron sights. Was thinking that maybe I could mount two see-through rings directly to the barrel/receiver (without a rail), add a Nikon ProStaff 3-9 x 40mm scope and upgrade the sights to (maybe) firesights. That's all possible with the Ruger 10/22 which has no bolt - the bolt spacing might require a smaller scope.

I'm hoping that all these thoughts might stir up some experiences, opinions and shared mistakes.
