Wow, this is awesome! I'd love one of these. Right now I've got a tricked out 10/22 for my rimfire target rifle, but I'd much prefer a bolt action and would rather not have to get all new magazines for, say, a Marlin or something.

The Ruger site shows that the American Rimfire rifle is tapped for Weaver #12 bases. I was kind of hoping this is the exact type of holes found on the 10/22 receiver. That is unclear.

When I look up the 10/22 on the Ruger site, it doesn't say what sort of holes are tapped.

When I look up Weaver #12 bases on MidwayUSA, the no Ruger rifle is included on the list of supported models. Neither the American for the 10/22.

Any ideas?

Very nice.
I would prefer a wood stock.
I like the adjustable trigger.

I actually did buy one of these. I bought the standard model with a 22" barrel for $280 at my LGS. If I were to suggest to a future buyer, I'd suggest buying the compact model with the 18" barrel and then buying an extra set of the standard stocks for the longer length of pull.

I haven't shot it yet, but the trigger is amazingly crisp and the bolt is smooth enough for that price range.

I went ahead and bought a pair of Weaver #12 bases and they fit great! I put on top of those some Warne rings and a Mueller 4.5-14x scope. They are definitely NOT the same bases that would fit on a 10/22, FYI.

I am one the worlds biggest ruger fanboys. The offerings from Savage and Marlin are more accurate than most shooters. Shooting unsupported they are more accurate than 99.9% of the people that enjoy shooting. Both Savage and Marlin have several models with all the bells and whistles for under $250. Ruger really has to step up it's game for me to pay that price, especially if the rifles are made at the Prescott plant.

The LGS had them on sale for $279.

I always like the wood more too. It burns me up that my best shooting 22 (AMT Lightning 25/22) has this but ugly poly stock.:mad: I really need ot change that. Dang good rifle tho.;)

I'm interested in accuracy. I have a 77/22 and have heard that their accuracy leaves a lot to be desired. (Mine included) To be honest, I would be inclined to try Marlin. I hear so many people saying good things about them. I was always under the impression that Marlin was a cheap starter gun.

I don't view them as cheap so much as I do "cheap". I naught my girlfriend one about two years ago (XT-22R) and it's been great. With a fixed 4x scope me and her have been able to hit gophers out to around 80-100 yards with no issues. At 25-50 yards you basically just point the gun in the general direction and it'll hit what you want. I don't remember what I paid for it, but I think it was right around the $300.xx mark.

Not sure why all the hype over another ruger. Too many very rifles out there already inn the same price range or lower. I pass it up as there high dollar ruger bolt rifle is not in the class c\as compairable priced rifles ether. Savage, marlin , and cz have the field covered all ready.
