In addition to being Ruger’s 75th anniversary, 2024 also marks another important milestone for the company: 60 years of its iconic 10/22 semi-automatic rimfire rifle.

While the original model was made using wood stocks and blued steel, Ruger is highlighting how far the design has come with its 60th-anniversary model. Set in a gray Magpul X-22 Hunter polymer stock, the rifle is built with a stainless-steel, threaded barrel mated to a silver-finish aluminum receiver.

Secured to the top of the receiver is an all-black Picatinny optics rail, along with an adjustable ghost-ring rear aperture sight. The barrel terminates with a black flash hider and is topped by a black front sight blade.

The underside of the gun features a black trigger housing and magazine-release lever, accented by a bright-red trigger shoe. A red-anodized bolt handle completes the package.

Each 60th Anniversary 10/22 ships in a Collector’s Series box, along with a Sixth Edition Ruger Collector’s Series metal street sign and pin.

MSRP is $639. For more information, visit
