Ruger® 75th Anniversary

In 2024, Ruger will proudly celebrate 75 years of manufacturing rugged, reliable firearms.

Ruger 75th Anniversary Mark IV™

Ruger 75th Anniversary LCP® MAX

The Mark IV, manufactured in Prescott, AZ, is the evolution of the Standard Pistol, the product that established Ruger in the marketplace in 1949.

10/22® rifles, manufactured in Newport, NH, are classic, attractive takes on this ubiquitous rimfire autoloader.

The LCP® MAX, manufactured in Mayodan, NC, is an evolution of the LCP, a pistol that transformed the market with its introduction in 2008.

While each of these firearms is tastefully embellished with Ruger 75th Anniversary markings, they are all intentionally priced to be affordable for the “average, working American citizen to afford,” echoing the vision that Bill Ruger had for his products 75 years ago.

Limited Edition Collector's Models

The SR1911®, first introduced in 2011 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Government Model 1911, salutes our pride in American craftmanship, demonstrated by the attractive and intricate details on the slide and grip panels. Only 750 of the Anniversary SR1911’s will be produced during 2024 and will be identifiable by a special "R75" serial number prefix.

This commemorative Ruger No. 1 is chambered in .270 Win. and features a 22" barrel with express sights and integral scope mounts machined directly on the solid steel quarter rib. High-grade American walnut compliments the beauty and elegance of the receiver and barrel. Only 75 of these rifles have been built and each is engraved "1 of 75" on the bottom of the receiver. A special serial number (R75-401 through R75-475) was created just for these rifles.

To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of both companies, Ruger and Hornady have collaborated to create this extremely limited edition rifle. This Ruger American Rifle Generation II 75th Anniversary is an extension of Ruger's newest exciting, innovative bolt-action rifle, which evolved from the popular Ruger American Rifle launched in 2012. Each model boasts a special 75VIP-001 - 075 serial number range and distinctive features such as a red and black splatter stock, spiral fluted barrel with muzzle brake and FX Cosmic Cerakote finish. This model is chambered in Hornady .204 Ruger and will be limited to a total run of only 75 model being produced.

Our goal at Ruger has always been to provide rugged, reliable firearms to responsible citizens, and it is because of our loyal customers, dedicated associates and media partners that we can continue this mission. As we embark on our 75th anniversary in 2024, we look forward to providing even more exciting products and happenings throughout the year.
