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.

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. 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.
