Featuring Viridian glass, Ruger’s newest 10/22 is a cased factory scope package that offers performance from the legendary platform.
Using a factory-mounted EON 3-9×40 scope on a combination base adapter for both Weaver-style and .22 tip-off mounts, the new configuration offers plinkers and sportsmen options when it comes to rimfires.
“Viridian has been creating leading-edge weapon technology since 2006 and we are thrilled to expand our product offerings into this exciting new segment,” said Andy Scott, Viridian’s director of sales and marketing. “We have been a premier laser sight provider to Ruger for years, and we are extremely proud to be launching our line of optics with Ruger and the iconic 10/22 rifle.”
The EON series utilizes fully multi-coated lenses, tactile windage, and elevation adjustments and water-, shock- and fog-proof construction along with adjustable eye relief and variable magnification.
The 10/22, of course, is a staple of .22LR semi-autos with more than a half-century of history behind it. The Viridian model, in black synthetic with a black satin finish, uses an 18.5-inch 6-groove cold hammer-forged barrel with a 1:16RH twist. The overall length is 37-inches. Weight is a handy 5.4-pounds. Each rifle ships with a single 10-round rotary magazine and a Ruger branded hard case.
MSRP is $399
