Ruger wants fans of its firearms to help design a Ruger 10/22 rifle to commemorate the 50th anniversary of America’s favorite rimfire rifle. And the Cheaper Than Dirt! community can help select the winning design. Ruger has placed 10 entries in the Ruger 10/22 50th Anniversary Design Contest website for viewing and voting through November 1. Interested rimfire fans can go to the website and vote once per day for their favorite designs.
“We selected 10 finalists based on the style of their submitted design, Ruger’s ability to produce, and its appeal to Ruger consumers,” according to a statement from Ruger. “Then, we’ll let Ruger fans vote for their favorite design.” The winning designer will receive a production version of the entered rifle; a trip to the Newport, NH plant to watch the production run, and $5,000 to be used toward the purchase of Ruger products. The remaining nine finalists will each receive a standard catalog Ruger firearm of their choice.
