Ruger's American Rifle hit the market earlier this year and gave consumers a high-quality rifle at a price that any shooter could afford. Durable, lightweight and accurate, the American Rifle is a true return to Ruger's company roots.

There's a lot to love about this rifle and little to dislike. Call us clichéd, but we just couldn't resist naming the "Ruger American Rifle" to this spot during the single most patriotic week of the year.
