Ruger's 10/22 Takedown has been a hit since its release. The company decided to build on that for 2016 and, at the 145th NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits, announced the new 10/22 Takedown Lite. The new introduction combines the popular attributes of the 10/22 Takedown with a new, lighter weight barrel and the Ruger Modular Stock System.

The new barrel configuration consists of a cold hammer-forged alloy steel barrel mated with a 6061-T6 aluminum alloy sleeve. Like the new Ruger 22/45 Lite, the 10/22 Takedown Lite's aluminum alloy barrel sleeve is ventilated, resulting in the lightest 10/22 target barrel yet from Ruger.

The 10/22 Takedown Lite weighs 4.7 pounds and is 34.50" long when assembled; each subassembly is less than 20.25" long. Disassembly is a simple matter of pushing a recessed lever, twisting the subassemblies and pulling them apart. The rifle employs the standard 10/22 action and ten-round rotary magazine.

Four models are available to start.
