The barrel and fore-end of the 10/22 Takedown are easily separated from the action and buttstock by pushing a recessed lever, twisting the subassemblies and pulling them apart. Reassembly is the reverse of takedown, and is quick and easy. The friction fit lockup of the assembly joint is simple to adjust, but will rarely need re-adjustment after the first assembly. The lockup is secure and repeatable, ensuring an accurate return to zero, even when receiver-mounted optics are used.
The Ruger 10/22 Takedown with target barrel features a .920-inch diameter, 16.10-inch cold hammer-forged barrel. The barrel is fluted for weight reduction, features a ½-28 TPI threaded muzzle and is fitted with a thread cap. This new target barrel takedown model also incorporates the Ruger Modular Stock System and comes with both low and high comb, standard length of pull modules.
The Ruger 10/22 Takedown with target barrel is shipped in a convenient carrying case, which provides ample storage with extra pockets and magazine pouches. Multiple attachment points for the padded, single shoulder strap offer different carrying options. The 5.5-pound Ruger 10/22 Takedown is 34.50 inches long when assembled; each subassembly is less than 20.25 inches long when disassembled. Utilizing the standard 10/22 action and ten-round rotary magazine (one magazine is provided), the Ruger 10/22 Takedown offers legendary 10/22 reliability in a compact and portable package.
