Has it been awhile since you added any aftermarket accessories to your trusty old standby Ruger 10/22? If so, check out two new stock options from Adaptive Tactical and Advanced Technology International. If you don’t own a Ruger 10/22… shame on you. No, just kidding! Read on.
If you don’t have a Ruger 10/22 and are in the market for something with more oomph, Taurus has its CTG240 carbine in .40 Smith & Wesson and there is the new Stevens Model 555 over/under shotguns for hunters and clay shooters. For those looking to spend less and add just a little something to the gun safe, Magpul is now shipping its AFG-2 angled foregrip and HPR releases the new Black Ops self-defense ammo. Happy shopping!
Adaptive Tactical Ruger 10/22 Take Down Stock
Dress up your new Ruger 10/22 Take Down rifle in Kriptek Highlander camo. The reinforced polymer stock from Adaptive Tactical comes in two pieces with an adjustable M4-style buttstock and pistol grip. Hidden inside the stock is an area that holds two 10-round magazines. The included rail allows you to mount optics or a bipod.
ATI Ruger 10/22 AR-22 Stock
For those of you who have wanted an AR-15-style tactical .22 LR rifle or if you have become bored with the traditional wood on your Ruger 10/22, Advanced Technology International (ATI) has a complete stock set that turns that classic wood rimfire rifle to a tacticool plinker. The ergonomics, look and feel of the stock is just like an AR-15, complete with forward assist, safety lever, charging handle and bolt release. It also includes a six-position collapsible stock, pistol grip and an eight-sided foregrip with rails. The stock set is made in the USA.
Taurus CTG240 Carbine .40 Smith & Wesson
There are many benefits to skipping the AR-15 platform chambered in pistol calibers and looking straight to a fixed stock carbine. Priced below the Beretta PX4 Storm, but more reliable than the Hi-Point Carbine, the Taurus CTG240 holds 10 rounds of .40 S&W. Many find it convenient to own a close-quarters rifle in the same caliber as their carry gun, as well as using the carbine to introduce new shooters. It recoils less than a handgun and the longer barrel makes it easier to be more accurate. The Taurus CTG240 has a 16-inch barrel, fixed front and adjustable rear sights, manual safety and has a reversible charging handle for left-handed shooters.
Stevens Model 555 Over/Under Shotguns
Just in time to gear up for dove season, Stevens—Savage’s value-priced line—introduces two new models of over/under shotguns called the Model 555. Available in 12 or 20 gauge, the Stevens Model 555 has an aluminum receiver with steel insert so the gun stays strong, but lightweight, chrome-lined barrel and a vented rib. There is a manual safety, beautiful classic walnut stock and the shotguns include five choke tubes. The 12-gauge model has a 28-inch barrel, while the 20 gauge has a 26-inch barrel. Both weigh around six pounds and have a 14-3/8 inch length of pull.
HPR Black OPS Self Defense Ammunition
When it comes to handling firearms, safety is our top priority. That is why it is so important to load our self-defense pistols with the correct round that not only stops a threat, but also stops at the threat. Constantly looking for the best self-defense round, we know we are leery of anything that will over penetrate. HPR produces a solution—the Black Ops line of personal defense ammo made with law enforcement in mind. The lead-free Open Tipped Frangible bullet transfers 100 percent of energy to the target. While it penetrates barriers such as sheet rock, plywood, car doors and class, when it hits soft tissue the jacket separates from the core causing a devastating wound. Currently, you can get the HPR Black Ops ammunition in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP.
Magpul AFG-2 Angled Foregrip
Magpul’s AFG-2 angled foregrip puts your hand high on the center of your AR-15’s bore. This placement gives you better control over your rifle, reduces fatigue, and minimizes felt recoil allowing for quicker, more accurate follow-up shots. The AFG-2 is slim, lightweight and still leaves plenty of room on the rifle’s rails for other accessories. This three-piece polymer foregrip is made in the USA and includes an interchangeable finger shelf for added comfort. It is 4.70 inches long, sits 1.94 inches over the rail, is 1.37 inches wide and weighs only 2.53 ounces. The Magpul AFG-2 comes in black, FDE or OD green.
