factory 10/22 receiver or ?

I have a stock 10/22 in my closet that I bought off a buddy over a decade ago. He tried some crazy engraving on it that looks like ass and I'm looking to replace it.

With all the high-end options these days, does anyong have a source for a reasonable take-off Ruger unit? Or are the other manufacturers "that" good? This would just be for me and my daughters to plink with.

Or just color the engraving with a Sharpie and go shoot it. Not like its a high-class gun or anything.

Seriously, if all you want to do is plink there is little justification for spending the money on a non-oem receiver. Check the sale forums at rimfirecentral - there are a lot of upgraders over there and you might find a basic receiver for a reasonable price. Understand that any receiver you buy will need to be transferred via FFL unless you can do a face-to-face.
