Ruger Announces New Rifle Configurations

posted on December 1, 2017

Ruger is offering some of its most iconic rifles in new variations. 

The ubiquitous 10/22 rifle is now available with a factory-installed Weaver 3-9x40 mm scope featuring a Dual-X reticle. This blued model, with an 18" barrel and black synthetic stock, is packed in a Ruger-branded hard case that is less than 48" long.


The 10/22 Target Lite features a black laminate thumbhole stock, cold hammer-forged barrel tensioned in a black-anodized aluminum alloy barrel sleeve, and the light and crisp BX-Trigger. The stock also has a rollover comb, a flat fore-end and installed swivel studs.

The classic Ruger No.1 Sporter is now chambered in the powerful .450 Marlin cartridge. A short 20" barrel mated to the short, single-shot No.1 action make for a quick-handling, easily carried rifle.
