Scottsdale, AZ – Reviewing the Ruger 22LR 10 22 Carbine Rifle | Gun Range News

The Ruger 10/22 is a sporting rifle the is absolutely perfect for shooters of all levels, from beginners to experts. It entered the market in 1964 and quickly became one of the most prolific rifles in the United States. It is a semi-automatic rimfire rifle meaning it’s the typical one shot per trigger pull. With 14 different variations and a wide variety of accessories and configurations, this rifle is highly customizable to fit the skill and preferences of the shooter.

The rifle has a reliable 18.5” barrel and only weighs 4.5 pounds making this rifle fall into the sporting category rather than being a target rifle. It utilizes a blowback action meaning the bolt is held shut after firing until the bullet exits the barrel and then ejects the used cartridge and strips a new round from the magazine.

The rifle has a unique rotary-style box magazine that ranges from 10-25 rounds. This allows for a high capacity with a reliable feed system. The system can be a bit bulky, but still functions well. It is easy to load and can remain loaded indefinitely despite the fact that the rimmed design doesn’t necessarily lend itself well for a magazine. Sometimes single stack magazines are the only reliable ones in this rifle. It is recommended the magazines be cleaned every 500 rounds or so.

The 10/22 tends to be very light weight and has a short length of pull. This makes it great for shooters with a smaller shooter to be able to control the rifle accurately and confidently. The crisp trigger also lends itself to increase comfort to shoot over and over again without sacrificing its heightened accuracy.

The ergonomics of the rifle are easy to understand and use, such as the simple open sights. This is one feature making it perfect for beginners exploring the firearm industry. Other aspects include that it is mass produced and therefore widely available and affordable (new models are around $200). Beginners and buy this first gun and many of the accessories and ammo without breaking the bank.

The rifle was designed largely with shooting and hunting game in mind. The low recoil is great once again for shooters of small stature to use without flinching or fearing it. It also helps to make the 10/22 easy to control with zero muzzle rise. Finally, the low recoil helps with the high accuracy of the rifle as shots stay on target when firing a 25 round magazine dump as fast as possible. With all of this, beginners will find themselves shooting better right from the start of their introduction.

The reputation of the 10/22 is outstanding in accuracy, ejection, extraction, and feeding from magazines. It can handle more power than average rounds and digest subsonic ammunition and cycle without issue. It is great for shooters of any size, especially smaller stature, and any skill level. Its reliability ensures it will last you quite a long time while you advance your skills.
