One for the rimfire lovers, Ruger have introduced four new target models to their Ruger American rimfire line. The new rifles are available in .22LR .22WMR and .17HMR, they have 416 stainless steel barrels and receivers and Black Laminate target stocks. And like Ruger’s other American Rimfires, they have the Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger.
Here’s Ruger’s press release on the new rimfires:
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) proudly introduces four new Target models to the Ruger American® Rimfire family. Constructed from stainless steel for superior aesthetics and corrosion resistance, all four rifles live up to Ruger’s reputation for accuracy and rugged reliability.
Each of these new rifles feature a satin, 416 stainless steel barrel, bolt and receiver. The 18″ cold hammer-forged barrel is finished with a 1/2″-28 threaded muzzle and an 11-degree target crown. The contrasting black thread protector, bolt release and one-piece scope base compliment the Target model’s hallmark black laminate stock.
Three of these new models boast an attractive target stock with an Alexander Henry forend which helps to stabilize the rifle when shooting from sticks. This stock also features a metal trigger guard, rubber buttpad and front and rear swivel studs for easy attachment of bipod or sling. This configuration is available in .22 LR, .22 WMR and .17 HMR caliber offerings.
The fourth addition to the family is chambered in .22 LR and features a classic target thumbhole stock with a generous cutout, symmetrical grip and broad comb for superb comfort and control. A flat forend, front and rear swivel studs, metal trigger guard and rubber buttpad with 1/4″ and 1/2″ length of pull spacers installed complete the package.
Like all Ruger American Rimfire rifles, these new models include the Ruger Marksman Adjustable™ trigger, proven Power Bedding® system and detachable rotary magazine, which collectively provide superior accuracy, function and reliability.
The new Ruger American Rimfires have MSRPs of between $529 and $579. Find out more about them here.
