Celebrate Ruger Day: 10/22

posted on October 20, 2017

Since its introduction in 1964, American Rifleman and AmericanRifleman.org have published dozens of articles on the 10/22 and its many iterations, as well as the hundreds of accessories built around the ubiquitous rimfire rifle. One would be hard-pressed to find a firearm enthusiast that didn't have at least one 10/22 in his or her collection. In fact, the rifle has gained so much popularity in its 53 years that Ruger has now designated October 22 (10/22) Ruger Day. Ruger would like for 10/22 fans to share in the celebration by using #rugerday and #1022 in their social posts. Feel free to start by sharing the following links to a few of our favorite articles on this iconic firearm. Ruger is also offering special deals on Ruger items. Go to ShopRuger.com.
