In some ways it’s hard to believe that the Ruger 10/22 has been around for 60 years already, but on the other hand I grew up shooting one, and while I’m not quite that old myself, I’m closer to it than not! I expected the anniversary edition to be a wood stock with some fancy, maybe gold inlaid engraving or something, but it’s actually a really slick, practical looking rifle. Nothing wrong with commemorative guns, but I prefer something that I’ll want to take out and use, and the 60th anniversary gun is just that. Here’s their recent press release on the gun.

Ruger Celebrates the 60th Anniversary of the 10/22 Rifle

In celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the timeless 10/22 rimfire carbine, Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. is proud to introduce the Sixth Edition of the Ruger Collector’s Series – the 60th Anniversary 10/22 Carbine. Accompanied by unique collector’s memorabilia, this Sixth Edition of the Ruger Collector’s Series is a great way to start a 10/22 collection, add to an existing collection, or simply celebrate the 10/22 rifle’s 60th Anniversary.

This rifle features a stainless steel barrel and silver-finished receiver paired with a Gray Magpul Hunter X-22 stock. The blackened bolt is laser engraved with a unique 60th Anniversary marking. The rifle is accented with a red bolt handle and trigger while incorporating popular 10/22 features like a non-glare blade front sight, ghost ring adjustable rear aperture sight, extended magazine release, and a Picatinny rail. The anniversary model also retains common 10/22 features like the push-button, cross-bolt manual safety and ½”-28 threaded cold hammer-forged barrel that accommodates popular muzzle accessories.
