posted on April 6, 2019

For more than 50 years, Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. has offered a semi-automatic rifle platform that has provided a tool for training, small-game hunting and competition, as well as yielded a foundation for the hobbyist gunsmith. It wasn’t until 2018 that the ubiquitous Ruger 10/22 took shape as a customized offering straight from the factory, all thanks to the implementation of Ruger’s Custom Shop. The first among several models out of the Ruger Custom Shop, this Ruger 10/22 Competition rifle is built around a heat-treated and stress-relieved 6061-T6511 aluminum receiver, with integral Picatinny rail providing 30 m.o.a. of built-in elevation adjustment. A proprietary .22 Long Rifle chamber is included for increased accuracy and reliability to withstand the rigors of competition shooting in less-than-ideal environments. To learn more about this exciting new 10/22 Competition rifle, watch this NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman's Kelly Young.
