I love that new gun smell, don’t you? Ruger announced a new takedown version of the hugely successful 10/22 today. Having an upgradable 10-round semi-automatic .22 LR at your side is certainly a good idea, and now Ruger makes storage and transport even easier than before. Readily separated into two halves, the Ruger 10/22 Takedown offers a convenient transport and storage option for the popular Ruger 10/22. As reliable and accurate as every Ruger 10/22, the Ruger 10/22 Takedown makes it even easier to keep America’s favorite rimfire rifle by your side.
The barrel and forend of the Ruger 10/22 Takedown are easily separated from the action and buttstock by pushing a recessed lever, twisting the halves, and pulling them apart. Reassembly is the reverse of takedown, and is quick and easy. The friction fit lockup of the assembly joint is simple to adjust, but will rarely need re-adjustment after the first assembly. Despite the ease of assembly and reassembly, the lockup is secure and repeatable, ensuring an accurate return to zero – even when receiver mounted optics are used.
The Ruger 10/22 Takedown ships in a ballistic nylon backpack-style case that features internal sleeves that hold the separated rifle halves and external pockets with MOLLE webbing that provide storage for magazines, ammunition, and other accessories. Multiple attachments points for the padded, single-shoulder strap offer different carrying options.
The 4.67-pound Ruger 10/22 Takedown is 37″ long when assembled; each half is less than 20-1/4″ when disassembled. Utilizing the standard 10/22 action, and provided with one 10-round rotary magazine, the Ruger 10/22 Takedown offers legendary 10/22 reliability in a new compact and portable package.
