A closer look at the new Ruger 10/22 Take Down Lite (VIDEO)

Ruger’s newest branch on the towering redwood that is the 10/22 family tree has a ventilated aluminum alloy barrel sleeve, is suppressor ready and breaks down for easy storage.

Unveiled at the 145th National Rifle Association’s Annual Meeting and Exhibits in Louisville, Kentucky last month, the 10/22 Takedown Lite has a new lighter weight 16.12-inch barrel and features Ruger’s Modular Stock system that provides fast adjustment to fit an array of shooters.

As the name implies, the entire gun breaks down without tools into two components for storage and easy carry, the longest of which is just 20.25-inches.
