Ruger's 50th Anniversary Model 10/22

Ruger_1022_50th_FTo commemorate 50 years of production of the 10/22, Sturm, Ruger & Co. conducted a contest. People were invited to design a 10/22 and then submit a photo and the description to Ruger. A panel of Ruger judges then narrowed down the entries to the top 10 designs. Those 10 designs were posted on the Ruger website, and visitors were allowed to vote on the one they liked best. The winner was Gary of Michigan, and his design is being produced by the company and offered as the 50th Anniversary model.

The special model features an 18.5-inch stainless-steel barrel and natural silver-colored alloy receiver, a black synthetic stock, and military-style sights. The stock has replaceable comb-and-butt units (like Ruger's American Rimfire bolt-action rifle), and the barrel has a flash suppressor. The receiver features a Picatinny-style scope-mount rail.

MSRP: $379.

The 50th Anniversary 10/22 includes a scout-style Picatinny rail system and cold hammer-forged barrel with 1/2"-28 threading.
The detachable rotary magazine can be released with an extended release button in front of the trigger guard.

Modular Stock System

The lightweight stock system is designed with ergonomics in mind. Two interchangeable stock modules enable adjustable comb heights and length of pull.


A scout-style sighting system includes a ghost ring adjustable rear aperture sight and a protected front post.

Commemorative Markings

The 50th Anniversary 10/22 includes special edition markings on the bolt face and stainless steel receiver.
