Southport, CT – (Ammoland.com) – Since its release nearly a year ago, the Ruger American Rimfire® line of bolt-action rifles has become extremely popular. Building on this success, six new models over three calibers are now available. New threaded barrel models in .22 LR, .22 Magnum and .17 HMR are available in full-sized (13.75″ length of pull) and compact (12.5″ length of pull) variations. All six models feature 18″ cold hammered-forged barrels with a 1/2-28 thread pattern and a factory-installed thread protector.

“We’ve been pleased with how the Ruger American Rimfire® has been received by our customers. They comment on the superior accuracy and quality of these rifles as reasons for choosing them.” remarked Mike Fifer, Ruger CEO. “These new threaded models are just one more way we’re raising the bar on rimfire bolt-action rifles,” he concluded.

The Ruger American Rimfire® shares many of the features that made the centerfire Ruger American Rifle® popular among hunters and shooters alike. It features a Ruger Marksman Adjustable™ trigger and patent-pending Power Bedding® integral bedding block system that positively locates the receiver and free-floats the barrel, making these rifles true performers at the range and in the field.

Each model in the line includes two interchangeable stock modules that provide comb height options for scope or iron sight use. Standard models come with long length of pull modules, while compact models come with short length of pull modules. By simply removing the rear sling swivel stud, stock modules can be changed in seconds. All four stock modules are completely interchangeable across all models and are available at www.ShopRuger.com.

Models chambered in .22 LR feature the detachable, flush-mounted 10/22® BX-1 10-round rotary magazine and accept all 10/22® magazines, including the BX-25®. Models chambered in .22 Magnum and .17 HMR use the detachable, flush-mounted JMX-1 9-round rotary magazine. The easy-to-use 10/22®-style extended magazine release provides smooth, no-fuss magazine removal. The 60-degree bolt affords ample scope clearance, while an 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. With the bolt removed, these rimfire rifles can be cleaned from the chamber end of the barrel, eliminating the possibility of damage to the barrel crown at the muzzle.

Additional features include a satin blued, target-crowned, cold hammer-forged barrel that results in ultra-precise rifling for exceptional accuracy, longevity and easy cleaning, plus a Williams™ fiber optic front sight and 10/22®-style adjustable, “V” slot, folding-leaf rear sight. A 3/8″ rimfire scope base is machined into the receiver, which is also drilled and tapped for Weaver® #12 bases (not included).
