In February, TFB reported the introduction of the Umarex-made Ruger 10/22 Air Rifle. It seems like a seamless way to transition youth from shooting pellet guns in the back yard to shooting .22 LR at the range. The Ruger 10/22 already has a large following, so this option may add a bit more versatility with the same ergonomics that customers are used to in the original rimfire version. Below is Ruger’s description and details:
The Ruger® 10/22® .177 Air Rifle is an authentic, licensed replica of the famous Ruger® 10/22® as a pellet firing air rifle. It utilizes a removable 10-round magazine containing .177 caliber pellets powered by (2) 12g CO2 capsules (sold separately) concealed in the stock to 650 FPS with lead pellets. The realistic bolt action, adjustable rear sights (elevation only) and black, all-weather synthetic stock make this a faithful representation of the iconic 10/22®. This air rifle will also accept aftermarket scope bases. The 10/22® Air Rifle not only looks like the Ruger 10/22® … it gives the air gun enthusiast the complete 10/22® experience with the quietness and convenience of CO2 power. Overall length is 37″.
