The Ruger firearms company has often worked pretty closely with Davidson’s to provide exclusive offerings of Ruger’s main lineup of firearms. Today is no different with the introduction of a truly ambidextrous 10/22 rifle complete with an Altamont laminate thumbhole stock. They have detailed the new addition in their September 17th press release below.
Davidson’s Exclusive Ruger 10/22 With Altamont Thumbhole Stock
Davidson’s Exclusive Ruger 10/22 Target Rifle
PRESCOTT, Ariz. – Davidson’s, one of the nation’s top firearms wholesalers, is proud to announce one of its latest exclusives produced in collaboration with Ruger.
At the heart of this 10/22 Target Rifle is the truly ambidextrous Altamont laminate thumbhole stock. Its beautiful form is matched by its function and ability to fit both right- and left-handed shooters. Coupled with the thumbhole stock is a 16-1/8″ cold hammer-forged stainless bull barrel. The barrel is fluted to reduce weight and dissipate heat and is also threaded with a 1/2″-28 pattern to accommodate barrel accessories.
Built into this exclusive as standard equipment is Ruger’s rugged, reliable, and safe BX-Trigger. The BX-Trigger has a light, crisp 2.5-3 pound pull weight with minimal overtravel and a positive reset.
The receiver has a blued finish and is drilled and tapped for the attachment of the user’s choice of optics.
“Davidson’s is known for our extensive line-up of exclusive firearms”, said Kane Cannedy, VP of Purchasing for Davidson’s. “The sheer number of special make-ups we have produced with Ruger is a reflection of our successful and years-long relationship with this iconic manufacturer.”
Other specifications of Item#31153:

I’m not usually a fan of laminate stocks in general, however, this one looks very slick in combination with the fluted barrel and something like this might just make its way into my personal collection soon. I particularly like the profile of the rifle and the more subdued colors over some of the other Ruger Davidson’s exclusives that have come out with loud colors. What are your thoughts on this new exclusive? Is this a go or a no-go for you?
