Ruger putting hardwood on the American Rimfire rifle

Priced at $449 the wood-stocked American Rimfire should see real-world prices in the mid-$300 range.

It’s been a couple years in the works, but Sturm, Ruger & Company has finally made the American Rimfire rifle available with a hardwood stock. Launched in the summer of 2013, the Ruger American Rimfire has been a runaway hit with shooters of all stripes.

Based on the Ruger American Rifle, the rimfire version uses common 10/22 magazines and like the centerfire model, was initially offered with a synthetic polymer stock. After what feels like a towering wait, the Ruger American Rimfire is now available with a hardwood stock.

The Ruger American Rimfire is the perfect starter gun. With single-shot magazines it can be used with beginner shooters, practicing the fundamentals with a bolt-action rifle. Down the road the rifle will continue to prove its value whether it’s used as a target shooter, plinkster or small game getter.

With the new hardwood stock the Ruger American Rimfire will attain a new status, as an heirloom rifle. With the timeless furniture and classic trappings this rifle, regardless of its low cost and availability, will be loved by generations.
