With the recent launch of Ruger’s Custom Shop, we wondered what would be rolling out the door. It didn’t take the new operation long to turn their sights on Ruger’s 55-year-old rimfire classic, the 10/22.

Weight - Custom - Competition - Pistol - Grip

When you shift the gun left or right, you don’t have to stand there and wait for the barrel to arrive. It’s there — immediately. This subtle “pointability” makes all the difference when seconds count. Ruger’s Custom Shop got it right.
