ARTV: Ruger American Rimfire

by
posted on February 17, 2016

Ruger's American Rifle found instant acclaim upon its release, and the company predictably has expanded its reach in the years since. Among the original additions to the American Rifle line was the Ruger American Rimfire. When it launched, Richard Mann had high praise for it in his American Hunter writeup. "Never before has such an affordable and adaptable rimfire rifle, which mirrors a centerfire rifle in feel and operation, been available. That, my fellow hunters, is American firearm building at its best! Ruger has set the bar high."

It's hard to beat praise like that. Want more? The folks over at American Rifleman recently featured in the American Rimfire on American Rifleman TV. You can get their take on the handy little rifle in the video embedded above.
