The Ruger American Rifle® Standard is a bolt-action rifle built with innovative designs and modern materials to provide shooters with a practical and cost-effective firearm, meant for serious hunting.
Ruger uses a 3-lug bolt design on the American Rifle with a 70° bolt lift, providing plenty of clearance to keep fingers and gloves from getting between the bolt handle and the riflescope. A 2-position tang safety is easily accessible and quick to operate by both right- and left-handed shooters; the bolt can be cycled for loading and unloading the rifle with the safety engaged. A cocking indicator at the end of the bolt can be seen and felt. Ruger designed the Marksman Adjustable™ trigger for the American Rifle to be user adjustable for weight-of-pull. The Marksman trigger is light and crisp, allowing for precision shooting in the field.
The Ruger American utilizes a detachable, ultra-reliable rotary magazine that fits flush with the bottom of the stock, adding to the rifle's ease of handling. The stock is constructed from rugged composite with grooves and texturizing on the pistol grip and fore-end, providing a solid, non-slip grip in any hunting environment. The stock features molded-in, Power Bedding® recoil/bedding blocks to rigidly attach the barreled action to the stock and free-float the barrel. A soft rubber recoil pad absorbs recoil considerably. The American Bolt-Action Rifle comes with a drilled and tapped receiver, and scope bases.
The Ruger American Rifle is a lightweight, fast-handling, and superbly accurate rifle meant for rugged use in the outdoors. Made in USA.
