U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce a new, left-handed configuration of the Ruger Custom Shop® 10/22® Competition Rifle. This new model boasts left-side ejection and a left-handed charging handle and push-button cross-bolt manual safety, all fed from a detachable 10-round rotary magazine specially designed for this rifle. While this model gives left-handed shooters everything they need in a .22 LR competition firearm, right-handed shooters will also appreciate the left-side charging handle – particularly those shooting from the bench.
The receiver is secured in a painted and textured laminated stock that provides a sure-feeling, slip-free grip. The stock also features a fully adjustable cheek rest, which can be repositioned horizontally and vertically to allow for a custom-adjusted feel that is stable, comfortable and repeatable.
The 16-1/8″ bull barrel is fluted to reduce weight and dissipate heat and also is threaded with a 1/2″-28 pattern to accommodate the included muzzle brake or other barrel accessories. The barrel also features a proprietary, enhanced semi-auto chamber which has proven to increase accuracy and precision while not compromising reliable feeding and extraction.
The 10/22 Competition Rifle features a hard-coat anodized, CNC-machined, heat-treated and stress relieved 6061-T6511 aluminum receiver with an integral, optics-ready, 30 MOA Picatinny rail. The custom receiver is paired with a heat-treated and nitrided CNC-machined match bolt that creates a tight-fitting, smooth action, enabling the highest level of performance. The dual bedding system incorporates a second lug, ensuring the receiver is securely fixed to the stock. This rifle also features an innovative second barrel locator to provide a free-floating barrel for superior accuracy. The receiver incorporates a rear cleaning port, providing access to the barrel from the rear of the receiver for ease of cleaning.
This feature-packed 10/22 rifle also comes equipped with: the popular Ruger® BX-Trigger® which provides a smooth take-up and crisp break; an oversized bolt handle for ease of charging; a match bolt release that allows the bolt to be released forward with a quick pull to the rear and release; and an extended, ambidextrous magazine release.
This rifle ships in a hard case and includes a detachable, 10-round left-handed rotary magazine; Ruger Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity, challenge coin, cleaning cloth and decal.
