NRA Gun of the Week: Ruger American Rifle Ranch

posted on April 15, 2017

Ruger has paved its American Rifle line clear across the country and back. The American utilizes a full-diameter, three-lug bolt, a two-position safety on its tang and a machined action that is secured to a synthetic stock by way of the company’s Power Bedding system. The result is a system that is cost-effective, both for Ruger and the consumer, but still provides accuracy and reliability. In response to a request from Michigan hunters when their state’s hunting laws changed a few years ago, Ruger devised a new big-bore variant of the American. Chambered in .450 Bushmaster, the American Rifle Ranch features a detachable magazine and a 16.5” barrel capped with Ruger’s own muzzle brake. Coming to market for less than $600, the Ruger American Rifle Ranch in .450 Bushmaster presents a great value in a chambering perfect for hunting in most of the U.S.

NRA 150: First Gold For American Riflemen

The modern Olympics, as we know them today, started in 1896, and there were shooting events at the games as early as Athens in 1906. After all, the man who put the games together, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, was himself a French pistol champion. Neither the United States nor Great Britain sent rifle teams to Athens, but that changed for the 1908 Olympic Games in London.
