60th Anniversary Ruger 10/22 Celebrates the Rimfire GOAT!

The Ruger 10/22 is the Rimfire GOAT–or the Greatest of All Time–it’s as simple as that. After 60 years and somewhere north of 7 million in production, the little rimfire carbine that launched one of the greatest cottage industries the gun business has ever seen celebrates in style. The 60th Anniversary Ruger 10/22 pays homage to the economical, highly accessorized and eternally popular 10/22.

The carbine features a stainless steel barrel and silver-finished receiver. It pairs with Gray Magpul Hunter X-22 stock. The blackened bolt comes laser engraved with a unique 60th Anniversary marking. The accented rifle sports a red bolt handle and trigger. A non-glare blade front sight, ghost ring adjustable rear aperture sight, extended magazine release, and Picatinny rail add popular components. A push-button, cross-bolt manual safety and 1/2″-28 threaded cold hammer-forged barrel round out the package.

The special-edition 10/22 also comes with unique collector’s memorabilia, including a Collector’s Series box with a Sixth Edition Ruger Collector’s Series metal street sign and pin. The carbine retails for $639. For more info, visit ruger.com.

Editor’s Take:

Last month, Ruger announced a a series of guns to celebrate the company’s 75th Anniversary, a trio that wonderfully celebrated the history to the now with a Mark IV Standard, 10/22 and an LCP MAX. Now Ruger shifts focus to the most popualr rimfire carbine ever devised with another special run. If you love the 10/22–and we sure do–then jump all over this special edition of an industry icon.
