Ruger 10/22 In Mannlicher Trim

10/22 Mannlicher

Sturm, Ruger & Co. teamed up with the firearms distributor Talo to offer a pair of Mannlicher styled 10/22 Carbine. These rifles have full length Mannlicher stocks made of walnut that offer a very distinct look. Some folks love them, others don’t.

The first of the two rifles, model #1264, has a polished stainless finish on the barrel and receiver, and the same parts are made of stainless steel. The second rifle, model #1265, has a blued finish on all of the major metal parts which are made of an alloy steel. Otherwise, the two guns are very similar.

Both guns have an 18.5″ barrel with a 1:16″ twist. The overall length of these guns is 37″. With the full length stock, these guns weigh 7.6 pounds – an increase of 2.6 pounds over the standard 10/22 carbine.

Ruger also offers a 10/22 Sporter rifle with a Mannlicher stock that is made for Talo. The Sporter model features a walnut stock with a different checkering pattern on the pistol grip and fore end than the two carbine models. Other specifications remain the same.

Ruger makes a wide range of special edition guns like these. While the target market, so to speak, is somewhat small for a specialty item, it is nice to be able to find exactly the gun you want even if that is not the cookie cutter version for the mass market.

    If I remember correctly, the Manliccher stocked 10/22 was one of the 10/22’s first configurations and is one that is very hard to find from that time period. Nice to see it back.

    • Bill Jordan

      There were several versions over the years.
      Not quite sure about first configurations. But in the 90’s there was a version called the International. I remember it in blued and stainless. Identical down to the cap at the front as those above.

      • SJB

        Pretty much out of touch with firearms, then, as far as what was current–didn’t know about those.

  • hking

    Yo that sporter edition is hot. All Mannlicher rifles are dope.

  • Harry’s Holsters

    My buddy has one in stainless with a grey laminate stock which I think looks better than these wood stocks.

    • KnoKnees

      I also have the International model (stainless with a grey laminate stock). And I must say that I wholeheartedly agree with you regarding the very pleasing aesthetics of the firearm.

      Since I purchased it about 7-years ago, I’ve incrementally upgraded it with the Volquartsen ($$) trigger group, including a striking gold anodized trigger upgrade, all of the internal springs, titanium firing pin, extended magazine release and the billet bolt-release and striker/hammer, which all combined, actually cost more than the rifle originally did.

      I also strapped a little Bushnell TRS-25 Red-Dot on it and I now truly consider it one of my favorite/most enjoyable rifles to shoot/plink with.

      It truly is a darn great looking/feeling and very accurate firearm. Plus it was really fun to upgrade, although it was already great in its stock configuration.

      • Harry’s Holsters

        Sounds like a beautiful gun!

        • KnoKnees

          As you are very likely already aware of, 10/22’s are really fun to work on, upgrade, etc.. And since you can pretty easily find after-market upgrades/replacement parts for just about every individual part on the firearm, it’s like having a dynamic shooting platform that you can tryout just about any and everything on.

          The only issue I’ve encountered is the lack of any after-market bull/target barrels. Since a larger diameter barrel will not fit within the Mannlicher/Stutzen style, full-length stock dimensions.

          I honestly wouldn’t sell mine for twice what I’ve got into it.

          • Harry’s Holsters

            Yeah as soon as you modify most guns you’ll never get your money out not to mention the emotional attachment! Honestly with the right ammo the stock barrel does pretty dang good for what they are.

  • Hoplopfheil

    If I were to buy a 10/22 (and I will eventually), it would be a laminate Mannlicher type. Dead sexy.

  • ostiariusalpha

    Nice! Just put a hogback comb on the buttstock and it would be truly ausgezeichnet!

  • Kyle

    You know I’ve never really been in the market for a 10/22 but that is an extremely attractive little rifle with that stock. If the price is right I’ll have to pick one up.

  • Swarf

    That’s a damn good looking little rifle.

  • Swarf

    Would it be legal to saw off the butt and turn that in to a bird’s head pistol grip?

    That would be a better pistol grip long gun than the shotgun from yesterday, IMO.

    Also; Chiappa can suck it.

    • Porty1119

      I believe that you’d need to keep the OAL at or above 26″, but I may be wrong. It’s definitely legal.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Manliccher + Takedown + integrated suppressor

    • Gay Jau

      It’s “mannlicher,” not “man licker.”

      • SyrianLannister

        you’re a man licker lulz

      • ozzallos .

        But “man licker” is just so… My wife is wondering why i’m giggling right now.

  • micmac80

    Why woud this be considered manlicher stock ?

    In Europe this stock configuration is called ‘Stutzen’ or full lenght stock at home in south germany and alps, its typicaly on short barrel handy rifle for stalking and hunting in the mountains and stock is designed ot the muzzle to protect the barrel from bumps and damage.

    • Max

      Many of the early Mannlicher–Schönauer rifles imported into the US had the Stutzen-style stock. This style was only commonly found on Mannlicher–Schönauer rifles and the name “Mannlicher” became closely associated with the one particular design of stock.
      Hence, many in the US identify the rifle type by the name of the company that was the largest importer of said rifle type.

      Having said that, anyone know a good stockmaker that specializes in making/fitting stutzen-style stocks?

  • Tim

    Why do they ruin it with awful press-checkering? The whole appeal of mannlicher stocks is the beauty of the wood.

    • jamezb

      the carbines appear to have cut checkering, the sporter may as well however it appears to be of the “basket weave” design which I find tacky.

  • Porty1119

    Beautiful!!

  • iksnilol

    Something about pigs and makeup.

  • jamezb

    An elegant weapon from a more civilized age.

  • HenryV

    I love stuzens. I hope Ruger make this option more widely available. But only after they have redesigned the bolt catch on the 10/22! Come on Ruger you have done something about taking down the Mk3 pistols…………
