Ruger has announced the introduction of its new American Rimfire Stainless. Since the launch of the company's American Rimfire line, customers have clamored for a stainless steel version. Ruger is delivering the goods in 2017. The stainless configuration will be available in three calibers: .22 LR, .22 WMR and .17 HMR.
The American Rimfire Stainless features a 416 stainless steel barrel, bolt and receiver. Hand-buffed from end to end, the satin finish is highlighted by the contrasting black thread protector, bolt release, stock and one-piece Picatinny scope base. The 18-inch cold hammer-forged barrel free-floats in the lightweight synthetic stock and is finished with a 1/2"-28 threaded muzzle.
Like the rest of the American Rimfire line, the American Rimfire Stainless features the company's patented Ruger Power Bedding integral bedding system, Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger and rotary magazine. The modular stock system is designed to help adjust the rifle fit to the shooter. The American Rimfire Stainless models ship with a high comb, standard length of pull module installed.
