One of 10 finalist in Ruger's 10/22 50th Anniversary design contest.
Fun, dependable and deadly – few firearms have become as ubiquitous and iconic as the Sturm & Ruger 10/22.

There are a great many over the past half century who have taken their first shots with the .22-caliber rifle. But the 10/22 is far from a novice’s gun. Its steadiness, versatility and ease of use have made it the first choice for every stripe of shooter – from plinkers to preppers.

In celebration of the unique rifle’s 50th Anniversary, Ruger is holding a design contest, asking the 10/22’s ample fan base to trick out the gun in every conceivable fashion. And trick out they have.

Above is just a taste of the incredible effort these craftsmen have poured into their works — one of 10 finalist from some 1,000-plus entries. Check out the rest of the finalist at Ruger’s contest site. While you’re there vote for your favorite – you have until noon ET, Nov. 1 to cast your ballot.

The winning designer will receive a production version of their rifle, a trip to the Newport, NH plant to watch the production run, and $5,000 to be used toward the purchase of Ruger products. The remaining nine finalists will each receive a standard catalog Ruger firearm of their choice.
