Sturm, Ruger & Co. announced the addition of a new rifle to the 10/22 line: the 10/22 Takedown Lite. The new rifle combines the features of the company’s existing take down rimfire rifle with the company’s modular stock and a lighter weight barrel assembly.
The Ruger 10/22 Takedown is a new rifle that allows the shooter to break it down for compact storage with a quick twist of the barrel. Â Take down rifles are simply long guns that are designed to easily come apart and reassemble for compact storage and easy transportation.
Take down .22LR rifles like the AR-7 have been popular with backpackers, outdoorsmen and preppers for a long time. Â Ruger is now throwing their extremely popular 10/22 into the take down mix.
On the new 10/22, disassembly takes mere moments, and reassembly is even easier. Â Watch the videos below to see how easy it isÂ in action.
The new 10/22 is weather resistant with a synthetic stock and stainless barrel.Â It comes with a black backpack (with molle webbing, of course) that can hold the Takedown and extra magazines and accessories. This rifle may wind up being the perfect backpacking gun for many people.
