Special Ruger 10/22 Takedown Supports USA Shooting Team
July 26, 2012
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) and TALO Distributors, Inc. have teamed up to create a limited edition USA Shooting Team Ruger® 10/22 Takedown™ rifle. This special run is limited to just 5,000 rifles, with serial numbers GOLD-0001 through GOLD-5000. A $20.00 donation will be made to the USA Shooting Team for every rifle sold. This is a historic opportunity to own a collectible Ruger® firearm and support the USA Shooting Team at the 2012 Olympic games.
"We are proud to team up with TALO to support the USA Shooting Team," said Ruger Vice President of Sales & Marketing Chris Killoy. "Every person that buys this rifle will be part of a team contributing $100,000 to support USA Olympic Shooters, and we're excited that Ruger and our popular 10/22 Takedown™ rifle are part of this patriotic fundraising effort," he concluded.
The USA Shooting Team Ruger® 10/22 Takedown™ is a stainless steel rifle with a distinct blue stock. Like all 10/22 Takedown™ rifles, the barrel and forend are easily separated from the action and buttstock by pushing a recessed lever, twisting the subassemblies, and pulling them apart. Reassembly is the reverse of takedown, and is quick and easy. The friction-fit lockup of the assembly joint is simple to adjust, but rarely needs re-adjustment after the first assembly. The lockup is secure and repeatable, ensuring an accurate return to zero, even when receiver-mounted optics are used.
The USA Shooting Team Ruger® 10/22 Takedown™ is also shipped in a special red ballistic nylon backpack-style case that features the USA Shooting Team logo. The bag features internal sleeves, which hold the two subassemblies. External pockets with MOLLE webbing provide storage for magazines, ammunition and other accessories. Multiple attachment points for the padded, single shoulder strap offer different carrying options.
