Ruger and TALO Distributors combined forces to build a limited-edition USA Shooting Team Ruger 10/22 Takedown rifle. Only 5,000 rifles will be made with serial numbers GOLD-0001 through GOLD-5000, with a $20 donation made to the USA Shooting Team for every rifle sold.
“We are proud to team up with TALO to support the USA Shooting Team,” said Ruger vice president of Sales & Marketing Chris Killoy. “Every person that buys this rifle will be part of a team contributing $100,000 to support USA Olympic Shooters, and we’re excited that Ruger and our popular 10/22 Takedown rifle are part of this patriotic fundraising effort.”
The USA Shooting Team Ruger 10/22 Takedown is a stainless-steel rifle with a distinct blue stock that can be easily separated by pushing a recessed lever, twisting the assemblies and pulling them apart. The lockup is secure and repeatable, ensuring an accurate return to zero, even when receiver-mounted optics are used.
The USA Shooting Team Ruger 10/22 Takedown is shipped in a special red ballistic nylon backpack-style case that features the USA Shooting Team logo. The bag features internal sleeves, which hold the two assemblies. External pockets with MOLLE webbing provide storage for magazines, ammunition and other accessories. Multiple attachment points for the padded, single shoulder strap offer different carrying options.
This is a historic opportunity to own a collectible Ruger firearm and support the USA Shooting Team at the 2012 Olympic Games.
