Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. has announced the addition of 11 new variations to the Ruger American Rifle bolt-action family—namely in the form of left-handed models and Ranch versions.

The new left-handed versions will be available in .223 Rem., .22-250 Rem., .243 Win., 7mm-08 Rem., .308 Win., .270 Win. and .30-06 Sprg.. New Ranch versions with a 16.12" threaded barrel will be available in standard and compact lengths and chambered in 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem. and .300 BLK.

"The Ruger American Rifle line continues to grow and these new left-handed and Ranch models are yet more examples of Ruger listening to its customers," said Ruger President and Chief Operating Officer, Chris Killoy. "With more calibers, more new models, proven accuracy and rugged reliability, the Ruger American Rifle has everything the shooter or hunter demands for the range or field."

The new Ranch and left-handed models are meant to carry easily, shoulder quickly and shoot comfortably. Their trim stock sports an ergonomic design, ambidextrous palm swell and soft rubber recoil pad. The tang safety allows for rapid visual and tactile verification of the safety position.
