The new 10/22 Competition Rifle is the latest addition to the Ruger Custom Shop line of firearms, joining two other 10/22 Competition rifles available in the same lineup. This finely-tuned precision rimfire gun features a skeletonized green mountain laminate stock and a stainless-steel bull barrel.
The attractive, skeletonized green mountain laminate stock decreases the overall weight of the rifle to help provide increased speed when transitioning quickly between targets. The 16-inch stainless-steel bull barrel has black Cerakote accents and is fluted to reduce weight and dissipate heat. The 1/2-28 TPI thread pattern accommodates the included muzzle brake or other popular muzzle accessories such as suppressors. The barrel also features a proprietary, enhanced semi-auto chamber, proven to increase accuracy and precision with no effect on reliable feeding and extraction.
The 10/22 Competition Rifle features a hard-coat anodized, CNC-machined, heat-treated and stress-relieved 6061-T6511 aluminum receiver that is topped with an integral, optics-ready, 30-MOA Picatinny rail. The custom receiver is fitted with a heat-treated and nitrided CNC-machined match bolt to create a tight-fitting, smooth action, enabling the highest level of performance.
The dual bedding system incorporates a second bedding lug, ensuring the receiver is securely bedded to the stock. This rifle also features an innovative second-barrel locator to provide a free-floating barrel for superior accuracy. The receiver incorporates a rear cleaning port, providing access to the barrel from the rear of the receiver for ease of cleaning.
This feature-packed 10/22 also comes equipped with: the popular Ruger BX-Trigger which provides a smooth take-up and crisp break; an oversized bolt handle for ease of charging; a match bolt release that allows the bolt to be released forward with a quick pull to the rear and release; and an extended, ambidextrous magazine release.
This rifle comes in a hard case and also includes a detachable 10-round rotary magazine, Ruger Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity, challenge coin, cleaning cloth and decal. MSRP on the Ruger 10/22 Competition Rifle is $899, and more information is available at ruger.com.
