Sturm, Ruger & Co.’s initial offerings from its new Custom Shop lineup include the new 10/22 Competition Rifle chambered in .22 Long Rifle. The CNC-machined 6061-T6511 aluminum receiver is heat-treated, stress-relieved and sports a hard-coat-anodized finish.
No, it’s not a 10/22. It’s a 44 Carbine, the design that fathered not only the 10/22, but Ruger’s entire line of rifles. Sturm, Ruger & Co. got its start making handguns, and was close behind Smith & Wesson when it added a .44 Magnum revolver to its lineup in 1956.
In the past I've heard some of the good folks at Sturm, Ruger & Co. say they work for a gun company, not a components company.
