Ruger Collector’s Series 10/22 Introduced

2015-06-19

Just when you thought the number of 10/22 SKUs had reaches its peak, along comes another one to add to the mountain. Latest up is the 10/22 Collector’s Series Carbine Rifle – Second Edition (curious how many editions I will see in my lifetime…).

While I am certainly content to poke fun at the marketing side of things, the rifle is actually quite the compelling option. Built in back-up irons and a built-in picatinny rail on top of Ruger’s adjustable stock system. Outside of tangible features, there is (of course) the normal bevvy of “collector” markings.

Accompanied by unique collector memorabilia, this Second Edition of the 10/22 Collector’s Series is a great way to start a 10/22 collection, add to an existing collection, or simply enjoy the experience of shooting an all-new model of the 10/22. This collectible rifle features an exclusive Collector’s Series bolt marking and a Collector’s Series box with a Ruger decal. Also included are a Collector’s Series pin, a reprint of the “Father’s Advice” ad and a limited-edition Ruger Collector’s Series street sign. As an added bonus, this model includes a $25.00 gift certificate to be used at ShopRuger.com for Ruger sportswear and accessories.

Those interested in a piece of the 10/22 action can pick up a Collector’s Series 10/22 Carbine Rifle Second Edition (that’s a mouthful) for $349.

“This new Collector’s Series rifle is another chance for our customers to get their hands on a limited-edition 10/22 – we are only producing them for a short time and in limited quantities,” said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and COO. “The first Collector’s Edition was a great success and sold out quickly. We are excited to give our customers another opportunity to enjoy this special 10/22 model,” he added.
This carbine rifle features Ruger’s Modular Stock System, with a low comb, standard length of pull module installed on an attractive composite stock. Based on the Ruger American Rimfire® rifle stock, this dark gray version of the 10/22 is both attractive and unique.

    if they would include the bx-25 mag and trigger it would be all the ruger many people would ever need. The gun they should have been making for a long time. Still, nice product. nicer than the stock carbine anyway.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    My favorite version is the one with the Hogue rubberized stock and integrally suppressed barrel.

    • Budogunner

      For .22lr I prefer muzzle cans. Integrals really can’t get much more quiet and you are stuck on just one platform.

      I do have the Hogue stock on mine and absolutely love it.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        True, but the overall barrel length is shorter when integrally suppressed.

        • Budogunner

          That can be a valid concern for some people. In those cases, you can buy 10/22 barrels whose length of bore is shortened and a vented barrel shroud is permanently attached. This keeps you legal at 16 inches overall while still allowing you to use a muzzle can beneath the shroud.

          Most .22 cans are pretty short anyway, and I kind of like the look of the extra length, but it is nice that there are options out there to suit all tastes. The 10/22 is one of those firearms everyone should own.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            I prefer a shorter barrel when im walking around in the woods, less snags. And I just think it looks cool.
            But you are correct, cans are getting smaller and smaller and the 10/22 is a great platform for any kind of customization.

  • Budogunner

    This is a good, off the shelf, Appleseed Clinic rifle. I wish the stock matched the Garand ‘ lines a bit better, but I guess the had to try to make it look sexy.

  • 3XLwolfshirt

    Everyone should own a 10/22. Which is good, because Ruger has made enough Special Editions for everyone to have their own.

  • mindflayer

    My wife has a 10/22 as her squirrel rifle, but I may get her this one, too. That integrated ability to change LOP and cheek rise is nice.

  • borekfk

    Meh. Toss some walnut on there and I’ll buy.

  • Grindstone50k

    Ok Ruger. We get it. Everybody loves the 10/22. You don’t have to churn out every variation of it that you can think of. Calm down.

    • AC11

      No, actually they do. (As far as they’re concerned.)

    • Cymond

      It seems that Ruger’s customers disagree with you.

  • ARCNA442

    Any reason for Ruger to not make this the new standard 10/22? Their bolt-action rimfire already has the modular stock so why not put it on the semi-auto? With the ghost ring sight and rail they can capitalize on the AR-15 owners who want to use the same sights. Finally, this MSRP is only $60 more than the stock carbine and this includes all the memorabilia.

    The only changes I would make would be their new trigger upgrade, a 25 round magazine, and a threaded barrel (though those might give them problems in certain states).

    • Ben

      Get the 50th Anniversary tactical version. I have one; it is this exact rifle but with a threaded muzzle. Comes with Ruger’s flash hider on it.

    • Anon. E Maus

      A lot of people like the standard version as it is.
      I’ll say that this model looks fantastic though.

      Could have used an extra half inch to thread, but I guess that’s fine as ti is.

  • Wardaddy

    This is nothing more than a tweak to the 50th anniversary design contest model I bought last year.

    • Ben

      Yup. This is just the 50th Anniversary tactical version, but without the threaded muzzle.

  • Blake

    shall we cal this the “51st anniversary” edition then?

  • Captain Obvious

    This is the 50th anniversary contest winning rifle design but without the flash hider. All the features on this rifle were designed by the guy who won the contest. I have one of those rifles and it is a great design. This will appeal to those in flash hider ban states.

    • Cymond

      Awww, you’re right. I hadn’t noticed the flashhider yet. I guess I’ll have to find one of the anniversary editions online eventually.

  • augden fischer

    my dad’s friend has a dual firing trigger 10/22 does anyone know where I can find one.

  • ContrarianView

    As others have said, this is just like the 50th Anniversary Contest Design Winner but with a standard steel barrel and no flash hider/muzzle protector. I suppose it’s for states that violate the 2nd Amendment by banning such scary features on mag-fed semi-auto firearms. If so, and if Ruger had any stones, they should name it the “Infringed Edition”.
