The New Ruger American Wood Stock Rifle in .22 Long Rifle

The new Ruger American Rimfire Wood Stock rifle was announced today by Ruger Arms.  This rifle is the first of the American rimfires to come from the factory with a wood stock, and will only be featured in the .22 Long Rifle caliber.  We are hoping that they begin to offer their other popular American Rimfire rifles with a factory wood stock option.  As many readers remember, we here at Varminter Magazine gave away a Ruger American Rimfire in .17HMR during our last Predator Contest.

Here are the specs released by Ruger Arms today:

Stock:  Wood Capacity: 10
Material:  Alloy Steel Finish: Satin Blued
Barrel Length:  22″ Overall Length: 41″
Front Sight:  Fiber Optic Rear Sight: Adjustable

Suggested Retail:  $449.00

Here are the features included in this new rifle:

  • Attractive wood stock features front and rear sling swivel studs, checkering on the grip and forend, and a rubber buttpad to make for a comfortable length of pull.

  • Easy-to-use 10/22®-style extended magazine release provides smooth, no-fuss magazine removal.

  • Ruger Marksman Adjustable™ trigger offers a crisp release with a pull weight that is user adjustable between 3 and 5 pounds.

  • Satin blued, target-crowned, hammer-forged barrel results in ultra-precise rifling that provides exceptional accuracy, longevity and easy cleaning.
  • A 3/8″ rimfire scope base is machined into the receiver, which is also drilled and tapped for Weaver® #12 bases (not included).
  • A 60˚ bolt provides ample scope clearance, while an easy-to-use, receiver-mounted bolt release allows the bolt to be readily removed without requiring a pull of the trigger, a unique safety feature among rimfire, bolt-action rifles.
  • Also Includes: Williams™ fiber optic front sight and 10/22®-style adjustable, “V” slot, folding-leaf rear sight; sling swivel studs.
