An industry icon just announced a major milestone today–one that translates into a collection of highly collectable firearms for the 2A community. Ruger 75th Anniversary Commemorative Firearms celebrate 75 years of building sporting arms. Each Ruger manufacturing facility will produce guns for the celebration, including a Mark IV Standard, LCP MAX, and a pair of 10/22 Sporter models.
Ruger 75th Anniversary Commemorative Firearms
Each commemorative firearm will feature embellishments marking the 75th anniversary. Ruger plans to offer the collection throughout 2024.
“Ruger has come a long way in 75 years,” said Ruger CEO Chris Killoy. “From humble beginnings in the Red Barn in Connecticut to three powerhouse manufacturing operations in Arizona, New Hampshire, and North Carolina – and with more support facilities throughout the United States – Ruger has made its name by providing top-quality firearms that represent a great value to the shooting public. On behalf of our almost 2,000 dedicated associates, I thank our customers for making our first 75 years such a success!”
Ruger 75th Anniversary Mark IV Standard
Ruger’s Prescott, Arizona facility produces the Mark IV Standard. Each commemorative features a fully adjustable rear sight and undercut Partridge sight. A heavy, tapered barrel comes standard as well. It retains the classic styling of the original pistol that launched the company in 1949. The commemorative model sports anniversary engraving on both the receiver and bolt, along with the fully checkered grip panels.
Ruger 75th Anniversary 10/22s
The Newport, New Hampshire facility builds the iconic 10/22. Each anniversary model comes with a stainless steel barrel, silver-finished receiver, and polished bolt engraved with the 75th anniversary logo. It includes a match-sanded butt pad and front and rear sling swivels. One model wears a traditionally stained and checkered hardwood stock; the other comes with an unstained version with dark checkering.
Ruger 75th Anniversary LCP MAX
Finally, Ruger builds the LCP MAX in its Mayodan, North Carolina facility. The commemorative pistol, a double-stack, ten-round EDC, features a stainless steel slide with anniversary markings. A silver-anodized aluminum trigger, tritium front sight, square-ledge, dovetailed rear sight and reversible magazine round out the package.
