Sturm, Ruger & Company recently announced the introduction of its 10/22® 50th Anniversary Design Contest Winning Rifle to its lineup. The rifle, available only in 2014, sports a variety of unique features including a modular stock and ghost ring rear sight.

The 10/22® 50th Anniversary Design Contest Winning Rifle is the result of Ruger’s most extensive Voice of the Customer Program ever: In late 2013, Ruger invited fans to submit ideas for their ideal 50th Anniversary 10/22®. Ten contest finalists were put to a vote on the Ruger website and, after almost 40,000 votes were tallied, the winner emerged!

“For 50 years, the Ruger 10/22® has been America’s favorite .22 rifle and this Contest Winning rifle is a great representation of what Ruger is trying to do today – listen to its customers,” said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and Chief Operating Officer. “The idea for this gun was submitted by one of our customers, and voted on by many more.”

Based on the original 10/22® rifle, this model features the ergonomic, lightweight black composite stock and the Ruger® Modular Stock System from the Ruger American Rimfire™ rifle. It also includes a protected, non-glare post front sight, ghost ring adjustable rear aperture sight, and Picatinny rail from the popular Gunsite Scout Rifle. The special edition rifle is rounded out with a precision-rifled, cold hammer-forged, stainless steel barrel, which is capped with a blued alloy steel SR-556®/Mini-14®-style, 1/2”-28 thread flash suppressor.
