Ruger American Rimfire Target

Ruger recently announced the release of four new models to the Ruger American Rimfire Target line. Further, each model features stainless steel barreled receivers, combing aesthetics and corrosion resistance.

Each rifle utilizes a satin, 416 stainless steel barrel, bolt and receiver, according to Ruger. Addtionally, the 18-inch hammer-forged barrel is finished with a 1/2″-28 threaded muzzle and an 11-degree target crown. Also, the contrasting black thread protector, bolt release and one-piece scope base compliment the Target model’s black laminate stock.

Three of the new models feature a target stock with an Alexander Henry forend. This component helps stabilize the rifle when shooting off sticks, according to Ruger. The stock also incorporates a metal trigger guard, rubber buttpad and front and rear swivel studs for sling or bipod attachment. These rifles are available in .22 LR, .22 WMR and .17 HMR calibers.

The fourth addition to the Ruger American Rimfire Target line features a classic target thumbhole stock. The stock delivers a generous cutout, symmetrical grip and broad comb for comfort and control, according to Ruger. The rifle includes a flat forend and front and rear swivel studs. Meanwhile, a metal trigger guard and rubber buttpad with 1/4- and 1/2-inch length of pull spacers installed complete the package. This rifle is chambered in .22 LR.

All four new Ruger American Rimfire Target models feature the company’s Marksman Adjustable trigger. The rifles also include the Power Bedding system and detachable rotary magazine.
