The 16 1/8-inch stainless steel bull barrel features black Cerakote accents and is fluted to reduce weight and dissipate heat. The 1/2″-28 thread pattern accommodates the included muzzle brake or other popular muzzle accessories. the barrel also features a proprietary, enhanced semi-auto chamber. Ruger says it increases accuracy and precision while not compromising reliable feeding and extraction.
The skeletonized green mountain laminate stock decreases the overall weight of the rifle. That weight helps provide increased speed when transitioning quickly between targets, according to Ruger.
The 10/22 Competition Rifle features a hard-coat anodized, CNC-machined, heat treated and stress relieved 6061-T6511 aluminum receiver with an integral, optics-ready, 30 MOA Picatinny rail. The custom receiver pairs with a heat treated and nitrided CNC-machined match bolt. It creates a tight-fitting, smooth action, enabling the highest level of performance. The dual bedding system incorporates a second bedding lug, ensuring the receiver securely beds 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.
The rifle also comes with a Ruger BX-Trigger, fearing a crisp break. An oversized bolt handle provides ease of charging. The match bolt release enables the bolt to be released forward with a quick pull to the rear and release. Finally, an ambidextrous magazine release adds to the versatility.
The rifle ships in a hard case and includes a detachable 10-round rotary magazine, Ruger Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity, challenge coin, cleaning cloth and decal.
