Ruger has come out with an offering that hits the new rimfire trend at a really attractive price point. The American Rimfire Long-Range Target is a pretty full-featured gun that’s out-of-the-box ready for long-range rimfire competitions. It’s got a heavy barrel, an adjustable stock, and a nice trigger, and it feeds on the reliable 10/22 magazine system. Overall, this is a smart, full-featured addition to Ruger’s line at a reasonable price.
