FORT SMITH, AR – Umarex USA, innovator and marketer of a wide range of products for the outdoor sportsman, announced that its Ruger® 10/22® Air Rifle is now shipping and available for purchase through select retailers. The officially licensed air rifle is the latest addition to their ever-growing line of pellet rifles.
Recognized as one of the world’s foremost airgun manufacturers, UMAREX continues to provide responsible recreational shooters with the greatest variety of air-powered versions of the firearms they know and respect.
The Ruger 10/22 has been seen on shooting ranges around the United States for over five decades. This new air rifle version is true to form except that it is powered by two 12-gram CO2 cartridges. The Ruger 10/22 Air Rifle is designed to shoot .177 caliber pellets, the most readily available and most popular selling airgun caliber for recreational shooting.
Beyond its function, the 10/22 Air Rifle is slightly lighter than the firearm, but looks the part. The sights are authentic in style, including the folding rear sight, and the rifle has authentic looking sling attachments. The receiver is ready to accept after-market rails that fit the Ruger 10/22 so that you can customize your Ruger 10/22 Air Rifle with the optic of your choosing.
The Ruger 10/22 Air Rifle is manufactured by UMAREX under license from Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. and boasts a modest MSRP of $129.99.
UMAREX sporting airguns, optics, airsoft guns, long distance lights, and accessories are available at local sporting goods dealers and retail locations around the world. Sporting goods dealers may order UMAREX products from many established outdoor goods distributors.
