Video: Ruger American .22 Rifle

Ruger's American Rimfire shares many features with its center-fire counterpart, but offers an innovative modular stock system. According to Richard Mann's article, "Rimfires For the Next Generation," the American Rimfire is the perfect understudy to the American, but it’s also a fine rifle in its own right. Offered in two chamberings—22 LR and .22 WMR—and in two configurations: Standard and Compact, each makes use of a detachable, rotary-feed magazine. The .22 LR employs the 10-shot magazine used on Ruger's 10/22 rifles since their introduction in 1964 (in addition to the much newer 25-shot BX-25 and tandem 25-shot BX-25x2 magazines). The .22 WMR uses the nine-shot JMX-1 magazine employed on the Ruger 77/22 Magnum bolt-action and the now-discontinued 10/22 Magnum semi-automatic.
