Ruger Introduces New Gun: The Ruger 10/22 Takedown

Ruger has announced the Ruger 10/22 Takedown, the new gun is separated into two subassemblies making for easy transport and storage for the popular 10/22 platform.

The barrel and the forend of the 10/22 Takedown are separated from the action and buttstock using a recessed lever, then twisting the subassemblies and pulling them apart. The reassembly process is equally simple, just the reverse of the takedown. The new Ruger uses a friction fit lockup that makes the assembly joint easy to adjust but is secure and repeatable, ensuring an accurate return to zero even with receiver mounted optics. The firearm itself is 37″ long when assembled and weighs only 4.67 pounds, each of the subassemblies is just over 20 inches long.

The firearm itself is shipped in a ballistic backpack-style case that features internal sleeves which hold the subassemblies, external pockets with MOLLE webbing for magazines, ammo or accessories and multiple attachment points for the padded shoulder strap for different carrying options.
