Sturm, Ruger & Co.’s initial offerings from its new Custom Shop lineup include the new 10/22 Competition Rifle chambered in .22 Long Rifle. The CNC-machined 6061-T6511 aluminum receiver is heat-treated, stress-relieved and sports a hard-coat-anodized finish. The race gun upgrades and features include an integral Picatinny optics rail and a rear cleaning port. The receiver is stabilized by two stock screws instead of one and, in addition to the two screws that secure the barrel’s V-block, a third screw is set into the free-floated barrel just below the optics rail. The 16 18" cold-hammer-forged fluted bull barrel features a target chamber and a 1/2x28 TPI threaded muzzle with a factory-installed brake. The painted and textured laminated stock provides a slip-resistant grip with an adjustable cheek riser and rubber recoil pad. ruger.com
