High performance. Low cost. The appropriately-named American Rifle combines the rugged reliability of Ruger's past with the award-winning ingenuity of Ruger's future... and wraps it all up in a surprisingly affordable package.
From the crisp, clean Marksman Adjustable trigger, to the Power Bedding® system that delivers free-float barrel accuracy, it's an outstanding performer at a budget-friendly price. The Compact version trims 4" off the standard barrel and brings total weight down to just 6 lbs., making it the perfect brush gun or "starter" Rifle. Stars and stripes forever, we say.
