When you learned on your first rifle, you probably had a 22 of some sort. Odds are you do not still own that rifle and if you do it is probably no longer in working condition. If you are looking to teach your wife or children how to shoot like you learned, don’t settle for a simple 22 that is going to falter after a few years of use. Instead, the Ruger American 22 LR offers an affordable option to help get them started.
Featuring adjustable fiber optic sights and an 18” barrel, this rifle works to maximize accuracy while minimizing discomfort while firing. Since it is chambered in the inexpensive 22 LR, it offers a great target rifle and can also be effectively used as a varmint hunting rifle. The black synthetic stock offers a durable, light-weight construction, which helps ensure the gun will last as long as you take care of it. The rifle comes with a 10 round magazine and features a smooth, bolt action.
Whether you are looking to get in some extra range time or find a new varmint rifle, this gun from Ruger makes a great option.
