Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) announces the Ruger 10/22VLEH Target Tactical rifle, a new version of the 10/22T Target rifle that provides many of the features offered in the Hawkeye® Tactical bolt-action rifle.
The 10/22VLEH starts out as a 10/22® Target Model. It retains the precision-rifled, cold hammer-forged, spiral-finished barrel, but the barrel is shortened to 16-1/8" to reduce weight and improve handling. The .920" OD match-grade barrel is capped with a target crown that protects the rifling at the muzzle.
The 10/22VLEH barreled action resides in a Hogue® OverMolded® stock. This non-slip, rugged stock has been an aftermarket favorite among 10/22 enthusiasts, and is now offered in a factory-standard rifle. The straight-comb Hogue® stock provides double palm swells, a varminter-style forend, and is complete with swing swivel studs and a thick, comfortable recoil pad.
The 10/22T target trigger is standard in the 10/22VLEH, offering a factory-crisp trigger with a lighter pull weight, allowing this precision-made rifle to meet its full accuracy potential.
Finally, this full-featured rifle includes a precision-adjustable bipod for steady shooting from the bench.
Assembled with an empty ten-round rotary magazine, the 10/22VLEH Target Tactical weighs 6-7/8 pounds (without bipod). It has proven itself to be a highly accurate rendition on the Ruger 10/22, famous for its ruggedness and reliability among rimfire autoloading rifles.
