For shooters looking for a bolt action rimfire rifle with rugged Ruger reliability and a more traditional appearance, Ruger has now released their American Rimfire Rifle with a classic hardwood stock.
“Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) is excited to introduce the Ruger American Rimfire® rifle with wood stock. In response to customer requests, this new model brings an exciting variation to an already popular rifle line. The stock is made from a hardwood blank in Newport, NH and mated to the popular .22 LR bolt-action in Mayodan, NC, resulting in a rifle with classic good looks and modern performance.
Ruger engineers designed this wood stock to host the same patent-pending Power Bedding® integral bedding block system and free floated barrel that have made the Ruger American Rimfire rifle family outstandingly accurate.
The attractive wood stock features front and rear sling swivel studs, a metal trigger guard, checkering on the grip and forend, and a rubber buttpad to make for a comfortable 13.75″ length of pull.“
It’s easy to see how this rifle could be useful for small game hunting, educating young shooters, or as an understudy training tool for your centerfire bolt guns.
