Ruger Releases 10/22 Competition Rifle In Laminate Stock

Ruger Releases 10/22 Competition Rifle In Laminate Stock

Ruger continues to build its Custom Shop lineup with a new 10/22 Competition Rifle dressed in a brown laminate stock.

How the 10/22 Competition Rifle is built to own the bullseye:

  • Adjustable cheek rest
  • Enhanced semi-auto chamber
  • BX-Trigger with 2.5-3-pound pull
  • Dual bedding system
  • 16-1/8″ cold hammer-forged fluted bull barrel
  • Optics-ready 30 MOA Picatinny rail
  • Glass-filled, polymer trigger housing

Ruger recently opened the doors on its custom shop and has been hopping ever since. The company introduced the SR1911 Competition and 10/22 Competition Rifle to kick things off, each decked out and tuned up as you’d expect out of a custom affair. The gunmaker has now followed up with a third addition to the lineup, unveiling the newly minted 10/22 Competition Rifle in a brown laminate stock.

Ruger 1022 Competition

The .22 LR boasts all the bells and whistles of the earlier released composite version, which includes a fully adjustable cheek rest, 16-inch fluted bull barrel, BX-Trigger and a dual bedding system, among other things. However, as its name suggests, it sports a rather eye-catching wood laminate stock. The 10/22 Competition Rifle in a brown laminate stock runs the same as the original, both with an MSRP of $899.

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce its third addition to the newly launched Ruger® Custom Shop. This variation of the Ruger Custom Shop 10/22® Competition Rifle features a natural brown laminate stock and stainless steel barrel.

The 10/22 Competition Rifle features a hard-coat anodized, CNC-machined, heat treated and stress relieved 6061-T6511 aluminum receiver with an integral, optics-ready, 30 MOA Picatinny rail. The custom receiver is paired with a heat treated and nitrided CNC-machined match bolt that creates a tight-fitting, smooth action enabling the highest level of performance. The dual bedding system incorporates a second bedding lug, ensuring the receiver is securely bedded to the stock. This rifle also features an innovative second barrel locator to provide a free-floating barrel for superior accuracy. The receiver incorporates a rear cleaning port, providing access to the barrel from the rear of the receiver for ease of cleaning.

The 16-1/8″ stainless steel bull barrel features black cerakote accents and is fluted to reduce weight and dissipate heat. The 1/2″-28 thread pattern accommodates the included muzzle brake or other popular muzzle accessories. The barrel also features a proprietary, enhanced semi-auto chamber which has proven to increase accuracy and precision while not compromising reliable feeding and extraction.

The natural brown laminate stock features a fully adjustable cheek rest, which can be repositioned horizontally and vertically to create a custom-adjusted feel that is stable, comfortable and repeatable.

This feature-packed 10/22 comes equipped with: the popular Ruger BX-Trigger® which provides a smooth take-up and crisp break; an oversized bolt handle for ease of charging; a match bolt release that allows the bolt to be released forward with a quick pull to the rear and release; and an extended, ambidextrous magazine release.

This rifle ships in a hard case and includes a detachable 10-round rotary magazine, Ruger Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity, challenge coin, cleaning cloth and decal.
