With a fully-adjustable stock, integral bedding block system and a threaded bull barrel, the new Ruger American Rimfire Long-Range Target is here.

Billed as bridging the “gap between traditional wood stock rifles and full-featured chassis rifles,” the new rifle is described as exceptionally accurate due to the combination of a cold-hammer-forged 22-inch free-floating barrel and other features. Said enhancements include the Ruger’s in-house Marksman Adjustable Trigger which can be tuned from three-to-five pounds, and a Power Bedding system.

“This new rifle delivers long-range performance in a .22 LR package,” says Ruger.

The speckled two-tone laminate target stock, similar to what is seen on the company’s Hawkeye Target line, has a two-way adjustable comb, adjustable length of pull with soft rubber buttpad, QD attachment points, and flush-mounted M-LOK accessory rail. The platform uses the commonly-found 10/22-style BX-1, 10-round rotary magazine, which means extras in a wide array of choices are available.

Threaded with a 1/2x28TPI thread pitch, the Long Range Target is suppressor-ready and has a factory-installed one-piece aluminum scope rail. Built for the use of optics from the ground up, the 60-degree bolt is designed with ample scope clearance in mind.

When it comes to specs, the rifle has an overall length of 40.5-inches without a suppressor attached and weighs in at 8-pounds.

Suggested retail on the Ruger American Rimfire Long-Range Target is $599.
