Just two years ago, Ruger celebrated the 50th Anniversary of its venerable 10/22. One of the industry's most widely respected rimfire rifles, the 10/22 has earned a lasting home in the gun safe of many a hunter and shooter.

As unique a piece of American history as you're like to find, the rifle's a beauty—and we can't wait to hear the rest of its story.
