The new Ruger 10/22 Takedown rifle was on display at the 2012 NRA show. We were able to get a full demo of the new gun while on the floor.
This new 10/22 really does take down and reassemble in a very quick and easy manner. I expect this rifle will sell very well for Ruger.
Aaron: Hello. This is Aaron. I am here at the Ruger booth, at the NRA Convention. I am talking to Todd Wilkinson. He is going to go over the brand new Ruger 10/22 Takedown Rifle.
Todd: Thank you Aaron. This is the new 10/22 Takedown Rifle. It has all the same internals of the standard 10/22, so you have the same reliability. It takes standard 10/22 magazines, only now you can take it down. With the bolt in the lockback position, you tip it over, grab onto your takedown lever, pull it forward, turn it 1/8th of a turn, and slide it out. Now you have your two pieces that fit into the case that it comes with.
To put it back together, you simply slide it in, rotate it, push together, and turn; now it is locked back together. It has an adjustment ring, so that you can always keep a tight lockup for continued accuracy and longevity.
Aaron: Great. Todd, what are these going to retail at?
Todd: MSRP for the gun, one 10-round magazine, a scope base, and the bag is $389.
Aaron: Great. Todd, thank you very much.
