The two-tone target stock features a two-way adjustable comb, adjustable length of pull with soft rubber buttpad, QD attachment points and flush-mounted lower M-LOK rail. Also included are sling swivel studs. It includes the patented, detachable, flush-mounted BX-1, 10 round rotary magazine and accepts all 10/22 magazines, including the BX-25, BX-25×2 and BX-15. The easy-to-use, extended magazine release provides smooth, no-fuss removal of the flush-mounted magazine.

The patented Power Bedding integral bedding block system positively locates the receiver and free-floats the barrel for outstanding accuracy.

The Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger offers a crisp release with a pull weight that is user adjustable between 3 lb – 5 lb, allowing shooters to make that perfect show.

The Ruger American Rimfire Long-range features a visible, accessible and easy-to-actuate tang safety that provides instant security.

The threaded 0.860″ bull barrel with factory-installed knurled thread protector is cold hammer-forged, resulting in ultra-precise rifling that provides exceptional accuracy and longevity.

A 60° bolt throw provides ample scope clearance and the easy-to-use receiver-mounted bolt release allows the bolt to be readily removed without requiring a pull of the trigger, a unique safety feature among rimfire bolt-action rifles. The rifle is fitted with a factory-installed one-piece aluminium scope rail.

Hopefully the Ruger American Rimfire Long-Range will be available in the UK soon. To stay updated on when that will be visit Viking Arms or stay up to date here in Shooting News UK.
