Ruger continues to roll out the products, with new models of its Scout rifle and an aftermarket trigger for 10/22 rifles.
With the SHOT Show on the horizon, tis the season for new firearms and firearms accessories. That is, unless you’re Ruger.
The company is churning out new products as the calendar year dwindles down. But instead of pushing out goodies for 2015, the New Hampshire/Arizona manufacturer is still introducing its 2014 roster.
The new model of the Ruger Gunsite Scout will be released in January 2015.
The other product includes an upgrade for one of its most iconic rifles. No matter how you look at it, Ruger appears like it's ready to finish – or start – the year with a bang.
Ruger Gunsite Composite Stock Scout Rifle
Next to Ruger’s American Rifles, perhaps no other series has been expanded more the past year than the Gunsite Scout line. And fans of the Ruger rifle will have another option to consider here soon – what sort of stock they want. Ruger has just introduced a composite stock model of the rifle, allowing for a lightweight option. The new stock option reduces the Scout’s weight to 6.25 pounds, around 3- to 4-pounds less the original laminated wood stocks. And Ruger is aiming to keep the rifle accurate, outfitting the new stock with forward aluminum bedding blocks to free float the barrel. The new composite stock Scout has the same MSRP as the rest of the line, $1,099.
The BX-Trigger is a drop-in replacement assembly, compatible with all Ruger 10/22 rifles and 22 Charger pistols. The new trigger allows shooters to outfit Ruger .22 caliber firearms with a lighter, snappier fire control. The 2.75-pound pull weight of the BX-Trigger is a considerable improvement on the factory trigger, which Ruger lists at nearly 6 pounds. The MSRP of the BX-Trigger is presently $89.95.
