Ruger has introduced four new Target models to its Ruger American Rimfire family. Each rifle features a satin, 416 stainless-steel barrel, bolt and receiver. The 18" cold hammer-forged barrel is finished with a 1/2"-28 threaded muzzle and an 11-degree target crown. The contrasting black thread protector, bolt release and one-piece scope base compliment the Target model's hallmark black laminate stock.



Three of the models boast a target stock with an Alexander Henry fore-end,  which helps to stabilize the rifle when shooting from sticks. This stock also features a metal trigger guard, rubber buttpad and front and rear swivel studs for easy attachment of bipod or sling. This configuration is available in .22 LR, .22 WMR and .17 HMR caliber offerings.

A fourth model is chambered in .22 LR and features a classic target thumbhole stock with a generous cutout, symmetrical grip and broad comb for superb comfort and control. A flat fore-end, front and rear swivel studs, metal trigger guard and rubber buttpad with 1/4" and 1/2" length of pull spacers installed complete the package.



Like all Ruger American Rimfire rifles, these new models include the Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger, Power Bedding system and detachable rotary magazine.
