Ruger 10/22 fans just got some good news. The Ruger Collector’s Series 10/22 Fifth Edition releases with that unofficial holiday for shooters – 10/22, dubbed “National Ruger Day.” We don’t expect the federal government to celebrate with us on this one, unfortunately. But the rest of us can enjoy this signature 10/22, arguably America’s most popular rimfire of all-time.
Ruger Collector’s Series 10/22 – Fifth Edition
The new carbine comes with a Fifth Edition Ruger Collector’s Series bumper sticker and pin. Each also sports an exclusive Collector’s Series bolt marking. It comes packaged with a National Ruger Day commemorative metal street sign as well.
The camo-dipped rifle features an American Camo synthetic stock and ships with one detachable, 10-round rotary magazine. The rifle also features a protected, non-glare blade front sight, ghost ring adjustable rear aperture sight, and Picatinny rail while retaining popular 10/22 features like the push-button, cross-bolt manual safety and cold hammer-forged barrel that is threaded 1/2″-28 to accommodate popular muzzle accessories.
