Ruger 10/22 Takedown Lite Rifle lead

When it comes to firearms, the phrase “takedown” always leads you to Ruger. And the company’s line of Takedown rifles just got a little better with the all new 10/22 Takedown Lite.

The rifle features Ruger’s patented, detachable 10-round rotary magazine with a unique rotor to separate cartridges and provide reliable feeding. Its legendary action, a tried and true Ruger design, ensures consistent, reliable performance.

An easy-to-use extended magazine release provides smooth, no-fuss removal of flush-mounted magazine.

The 10/22 Takedown Lite features a positive, push-button, cross-bolt manual safety.

A combination scope base adapter for both Weaver-style and .22 tip-off scope mounts is included.

The cold hammer-forged barrel tensioned in aluminum alloy barrel sleeve features a 1/2″-28 threaded muzzle and is fitted with a thread cap which can be removed to allow for the use of muzzle accessories.

Heat-stabilized, glass-filled, polymer trigger housing assembly is precision made of high-tech material for improved manufacturing tolerances, impact and abrasion-resistance and an unmatched ability to withstand the elements.

The 10/22 Takedown Lite also includes a convenient carry-case, which provides ample storage room for magazines and accessories.

Easy takedown enables quick separation of the barrel from the action for ease of transportation and storage. Takedown is as simple as locking the bolt back and verifying that the rifle is unloaded, pushing a recessed lever, twisting the subassemblies and pulling them apart.

The Ruger 10/22 Takedown Lite retails for $659 and is available now.
