The company received nearly 1,000 submissions and eventually selected 10 finalists, asking the public to vote on their favorite design. The winner of the design for the Ruger 10/22 50th Anniversary Rifle won a production version of their rifle, a trip to the Newport, NH plant to watch the production run, and $5,000 worth of Ruger product.
