good gun for a good price

love my 17hmr version, wanted a 22lr

Positive experience previously doing business with Grab A Gun, Ruger reputation and model reputation.

we are a girls camp and this is an activity for our campers. this gun was suggested by our riferly instructor

Is this rifle magazine fed, tube fed or a single shot.rifle?

this takes the same mags as the ruger 10/22: a 10-round rotary flush fit mag or a 25-round banana mag. I ordered both here and they work great

Is this a hunting rifle?

Yes, For small game and introducing the little one’s to shooting

The best way to find out answers about a gun, go directly to the manufacturers website from Ruger, all the information is there. Research is a wonderful tool.

Ruger American® Rimfire, Model Number: 8301, Weight6 lb. Barrel Length22″,

Is this California legal?

Should be ok but you can’t buy the extended magazines, only the 10 rounders. Double check with local law officials as I’m not 100% with California’s ever growing list of absurd laws.

Can a scope and bipod be mounted on this rifle?

Should be able to mount tripod on forward sling stud.
From Ruger site… A 3/8″ rimfire scope base is machined into the receiver, which is also drilled and tapped for Weaver #12 bases.

Do you make this in left handed?

This model? You dont. Not sure if Ruger makes a version for lefties or not. I seem to remember that savage was for a time really into offering left hand rifles and though they cost more they actually are better rifles or at least their barrels and triggers are superior to these rugers……but at this price point one cannot really gripe

Does this shoot short ,long and long rifle?

no, LR only

Does this model have the threaded barrel?

One of the best 22 rifles i have had in my collection. just as good if not better then the 10/22, takes the same mags. only matter of prefference is bolt action or semi auto, i put a walmart scope made by “simmons” on mine and holds zero perfectly and has not lost zero for over a year and about 300 rounds through it. ruger has become a favorite in rifles for me

Ruger American Rimfire Bolt Action
The Ruger American Rimfire comes with super reasonable features that make it easy to use. I was super impressed with the rifle’s accuracy and also impressed with the nice finish on the barrel. The adjustable trigger is definitely a plus which is adjustable from 3 to 5 pounds.

Its a good gun. Nice blueing. The barrel is suppose to be full floating but the stock touches just a little bit. I am sure it could be fix by removing a little material.
