After hearing so much about it, we couldn't wait to get our hands on Ruger's latest model the Ruger American at the 2012 Media Day at the Range in Boulder City, Nev.

Get a look at the Ruger American Rifle in action with a little help from AmericanHunter.org contributor Dave Campbell:

You might recall that American Rifleman Editor in Chief Mark Keefe got a sneak preview of the American at Ruger's New Port, N.H. factory late last year.

With an affordable price tag of $449, the Ruger American Rifle features the Ruger Marksman Adjustable Trigger and a four-round capacity, polymer rotary magazine. One of its brightest design features, no doubt, is its barrel which is cold-hammer forged and 22-inches long with a sporter contour and no sights.
