It was in 1949 that Sturm, Ruger & Company, Incorporated, more commonly known as Ruger, was founded by William B. Ruger and Alexander McCormick Sturm. Since then, the Connecticut-based arms manufacturer has been recognized as a leader in centerfire and rimfire handguns and rifles and renowned for their reputation regarding both reliability and durability. It is that reputation that leads the company to produce firearms like the Ruger 10/22. More importantly, it is that very same reputation that allows the company to build on successful firearms like the 10/22 and produce variations like the Model 11126, with which they seek to replicate the performance of its predecessors in terms of both quality and popularity.
Since its introduction nearly 50 years ago, the Ruger 10/22 has become, inarguably, America's favorite .22 LR rifle. The semi-automatic, rimfire rifle features a legendary action based on a blowback operation and is available in a countless number of configurations. And because they are also highly customizable, the platform continues to garner support as time wears on
For the Ruger 10/22 Model 11126, Ruger and Sports South teamed up with TAPCO® in order to produce this remarkable distributor-exclusive model. For those that may be unaware, TAPCO® is a manufacturing company that began over 25 years ago that now specializes in aftermarket firearm products, each of which is marked by its unmistakable quality and backed by a lifetime warranty. At the heart of this particular model is the TAPCO® fusion stock system, but that does not even begin to tell the story of the Ruger 10/22 Model 11126.
As expected, the legendary Ruger 10/22 action is back and housed within a rifle that features a 16 1/4 inch barrel (1:16-inch twist rate) and an overall length of 36 1/2 inches. The alloy steel barrel and receiver are nestled into the aforementioned TAPCO® fusion stock, a black composite stock system that features an adjustable length of pull courtesy of an M4-style, six-position telescoping stock. The rifle also includes a TAPCO® SAW-style pistol grip with an internal storage compartment. Like other 10/22s, the Model 11126 is one of the most modular rifles in existence. The TAPCO® fusion stock includes both an upper and lower MIL-STD 1913 rail for the attachment of tactical equipment – a must considering this model does not ship with iron sights. The lower rail, when not in use, is easily concealed by a removable cover. Other features include a push-button manual safety, an extended magazine release and an integral flash suppressor. As noted, each rifle includes a 25-round Ruger BX-25 magazine with optimally-angled feed lips to provide for reliable feeds every time. All of this is packed into a rifle that weighs just five pounds.
