The American series from Ruger consists of bolt-action rifles chambered from 22LR rimfire up to large centerfire rifles such as the 30-06 SPG, and were designed to be an innovative yet affordable rifle platform with models suitable for all North American game. This particular example, chambered in 22LR, features interchangeable stock modules that provide comb height options for both scope or iron sight use. The lightweight black composite stock has sling swivel studs and a 13.75" length of pull. The Marksman adjustable trigger offers a user adjustable pull weight, between 3 and 5 pounds. The free-floated hammer-forged barrel has a target-crown, ultra-precise rifling to provide exceptional accuracy, longevity and easy cleaning, and a satin blued finish. It also features a 10/22-style extended magazine release, a fiber optic front sight, an adjustable V slot folding rear sight, and a 3/8" rimfire scope base machined into the receiver, which is also drilled and tapped for Weaver #12 bases (not included).

I have had the Ruger American Rimfire for a few weeks. I have been shooting with the iron sights that came with it and I am happy with them. I specifically bought this rifle because I wanted the longer barrel but I wanted to take advantage of the shorter stock module that changed the length of pull to 12.75 inches. I ordered the shorter stock module and installed it. The combination of the longer barrel and shorter length of pull is a great fit for me. It is nice to have that flexibility. I am planning to add Tech Sights sometime in the future, but I will shoot with the open iron sights for a while (I reversed the rear sight to get a square notch which I like much better). Elevation and windage adjustments are fairly easy and reliable. I found that for windage, I did not need a hammer. Simple tapping at the base of the rear sight with the brass punch was enough for what I needed.

Action is smooth and reliable. The trigger is smooth and crisp. The rifle is accurate to the extent my ability permits me to shoot accurately. The fit and finish are very nice and free of blemish.

It is nice looking, easy to shoot, and a lot of fun. I highly recommend it.

I have my eyes on Ruger American Long-Range Target chambered in 6.5 Creedmore from Buds Gun Shop as my next rifle.

Ordering gun from Buds was very simple. Gun arrived at FFL on time. I mounted scope and went to range. I was a little disappointed with accuracy , I tried several different types then found The gun liked Aguila standard velocity, Almost 1MOA at 100 yd Great results, really happy with gun. Fit and finish really good , Another great Ruger to my collection.

Buds had this Rifle on sales for under $200.00. That deal was too good to pass. Buds processed my order and my FFL had it in less than a week. Thank you for such fast processing during challenging times. This rifle is very accurate with just the stock sights. This model came with a neon front sight and 22" barrel. I like the neon sight much better than the tradition post on a Ruger 10/22. I also prefer the longer barrel vs. the common 18.5". Shot CCI & Eley ammo and it worked great. I have a Ruger 10/22 which is fun but still has jam issue from time to time. The bolt action on the American is flawless, very smooth and easy to use. Cleaning and breakdown are simple to. I took it to a .22 plinking range and had a blast. Shot all day and it worked great. Very happy with this rifle and would recommend to a friend.

I like Ruger firearms and have a few. I like this rifle, the American Rimfire. I was lucky enough to be able to take the rifle out into the field this past weekend for a little plinking session. What I found was: First, the rifle takes standard 10-22 magazines. I have a few of these hanging around and they worked perfectly. Second, the rifle feels and handles well; the bolt is nice and precise and as good as my Mossberg 346 and Winchester 52 bolts. Feels good. Third, the trigger is crisp and definite. Fourth and most important is the sights. The front is a high visibility green which shows up as a dot. The rear has a white diamond. This makes it easy to line up the sights: just put the dot over the diamond. This is like the sights on my old Marlin 39 which is very accurate. Very nice rifle.

Bought this rifle to start teaching my kids how to shoot. Also owning a Ruger 10/22 already helps as they use the same magazines. Pretty decent rifle, couldn't be happier with it! First time using Buds gun shop and was impressed all the way around.

Great little rifles. I bought these for my kids to introduce them to marksmanship. I considered semi auto, but went with a nice magazine fed, bolt action to teach them to acquire target, and slow the process down. These are tack drivers. Not too heavy, and though they're not the compact model , I bought the shorter stock butt pad for my 9 yr old daughter to shorten the pull. Perfect for smaller shooters. Would recommend this for anyone, but for a first gun, it's perfect.

The rifle arrived in good condition in the original box. The bore was cleaned thoroughly, the bolt and receiver were wiped of shipping oil. A light oil coating was applied to the sliding surface and locking area of the bolt. The rifle operated very well in the first range firing opportunity and no jams or misfires occurred. The open sights have been used so far and work well with the fiber optic front sight being easy to view. The 10 round magazines do not drop freely when released empty and require some manipulation to remove. I have the same issue with a 10/22 and it seems to be a function of the magazine fitting fully into the stock.
The rifle is well balanced and easy to grip and hold on target. It functions well and is very enjoyable to use.

I am very happy with this rifle, it takes the 10/22 magazines and functions properly. I would recommend this product to others.

Another great Ruger product & top notch service from Bud's. I found this rifle to be a great shooter that is shooting near MOA accuracy with bulk pack REM Thunderbolt ammo (approx 1/2" groups @ 50 yds) and friendly wind.
