There is so much to be said about the Ruger 10/22 Takedown that I am just going to jump right in. No history. No jokes. Just the facts.
As noted, the Ruger 10/22 Takedown is a semi-automatic, rimfire rifle chambered in .22 LR that carries the unique capability of being broken down into two subassemblies, which is probably the biggest selling point of the rifle. You could, however, argue that the fact it is a Ruger 10/22 is a large enough selling point on its own, but I am sure you want to hear more about the "Takedown" part. You know me – I always deliver.
The hallmark of the Ruger 10/22 Takedown is its capability of being broken down into two subassemblies. I keep saying that, but now it is time to tell you what it actually means. The barrel can be quickly and easily separated from the action in order to provide the owner with easy storage and transport. This is accomplished by first locking back the bolt and verifying that the rifle is unloaded. The next step is to push forward a recessed locking lever, which will unlock the two subassemblies. After the lever is unlocked, the barrel assembly should be rotated counterclockwise and removed from the receiver, leaving you with two separate subassemblies. Reassembly is just as simple and returns the rifle to zero to provide uncanny accuracy at all times.
Just as you would expect, the legendary Ruger 10/22 action is back and housed within a rifle that features an 18.5-inch barrel (1:16 twist rate) and an overall length of 37 inches when assembled. The stainless-steel barrel is nestled in a black synthetic stock that has a length of pull that measures 13.5 inches. More impressive is the fact that the rifle includes a clear matte finish and is completely water resistant. Earlier, I mentioned that the Ruger 10/22 is one of the most modular rifles in existence. It is perfect for use with various sights and scopes and includes a combination scope base adapter for both Weaver-style and .22 "tip-off" scope mounts. Other features include the push-button manual safety, the extended magazine release and an iron sight system that features an adjustable rear sight alongside a gold bead front sight. As noted, each rifle includes a 10-round rotary magazine with optimally-angled feed lips to provide for reliable feeds every time. All of this is packed into a rifle that weighs just 4.67 pounds.
The inclusion of a backpack-style carrying case is the icing on the cake. The Ruger bag provides plenty of room for storing your Ruger 10/22 Takedown with a number of pockets and options for storing accessories like magazines, ammunition, optics and more.
There is simply no other rifle that is as versatile and affordable as the Ruger 10/22 Takedown. As noted, our first shipment sold out before they even made it online. As such, we do not expect these to stick around for long. Consider the Takedown for:
- Target shooting
- Sport shooting
- Small-game hunting
- Much more…

First impressions are that this rifle is a very high quality well fitted
Rifle. It is all stainless, very light weight, has an excellent carrying case and good sights. Trigger is a little on the heavy side but has little take up and nearly no creep with a crisp release. Its a 10/22 so the aftermarket is swamped with accessories. Such a nice rifle that I bought a second standard 10/22 the next day to make into a good looking target rifle. My co-worker bought a take down as well and is equally impressed.
IMO this is a better takedown rifle than its competitors (the Marlin 70PSS "Papoose" and the Henry U.S. Survival Rifle). For one thing, it actually has a forend, unlike either the Marlin or the Henry. For another, the stock isn't three inches wide across the top (like the Henry). All in all, it's a great little rifle and one I highly recommend.
I still wish they made one with a walnut stock, though. ;)
The fit & finish on this firearm are excellent, with extraordinarily tight mating tolerances. In addition, the accuracy of the weapon is surprisingly good - as good or better than rifles of similar size and barrel length that are not designed for ready & regular disassembly, as this one is. The magazine locks up tight, and I experienced no difficulties whatsoever in feed & ejection. Finally, the included carrying case is well-designed to accommodate the rifle, and is light & easy to carry. Though somewhat more expensive than its competitor, it is well-worth the higher cost.
