Southport, CT --(
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce that
the Ruger American Rifle has been awarded the 2012 Best of the Best
award from Field & Stream magazine.
Products named to Field
& Stream’s Best of the Best list represent absolute excellence in
their field, and only the top performing products are given this
Quote:“We are honored to receive this Best of
the Best recognition from Field & Stream magazine,” said Ruger
President & CEO Mike Fifer.
“The Ruger American Rifle is the
whole package – rugged, reliable, and incredibly accurate. The
innovative features of this 100% American-made rifle deliver performance
that rivals far more expensive firearms. Thank you to the experts at
Field & Stream for recognizing the Ruger American Rifle as one of
the best hunting rifles in the field,” he concluded.
“Our staff
spent the better part of the past year finding and testing the gear that
will make readers’ time in the woods more productive and more fun,”
says Slaton White, Deputy Editor of Field & Stream. “The winning
products not only withstood our tough testing, but they stood head and
shoulders above the rest displaying absolute excellence in their field.
The Best of the Best is the highest honor Field & Steam bestows on
gear and the winning products are the best of the year; worth your time,
worth your money.”
The 6-1/4 pound Ruger American
Rifle is offered in short- and long-action calibers. The rifle features
the new Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger that offers a crisp release
with a pull weight that is user-adjustable between three and five
pounds. Ruger’s patent-pending Power Bedding system utilizes
stainless-steel bedding blocks insert-molded into the stock to
positively locate the receiver and free-float the barrel. The barrel’s
rifling is cold hammer forged to exacting tolerances, providing sub-MOA
accuracy and an easy to clean mirror-smooth finish.
The Ruger
American Rifle’s three-lug, 70-degree bolt utilizes a full diameter bolt
body and dual cocking cams for smooth, easy cycling. The reliable
4-round, rotary magazine fits flush with the stock and offers the smooth
feed of Ruger rotary magazines. The receiver is drilled and tapped for
mounting the included scope bases. The easily accessible tang safety,
which can be placed “on safe” while the bolt is cycled, is complemented
by the passive, trigger-mounted safety which positively locks the
About Best of the Best
Each year the
editors at Field & Stream review new products and innovations and
choose the top performing items for inclusion in the annual Best of The
Best round-up. Field & Stream test-team members rigorously test each
item during a process dubbed the “Field & Stream Torture Tests.”
Products are shot, bent, driven, dropped, and generally abused. Anything
that falters is immediately eliminated. Beyond surviving the torture
tests, winning products are ultimately selected based on significance of
the innovation, the quality of the design, and the value they bring to
outdoorsmen. Selection criteria varies, depending upon the category, but
all of the winning products share one characteristic: excellence in
their field.

I'm curious about getting one chambered in 308 as well. I wonder how it would hold up accuracy wise for some longer range shooting.

Thanks for sharing, OP. I've been thinking about that .308 since they were announced.

The .308 is on my wish list at Bud's. Soon as it's back in stock, picking one up.

Lately I have been researching the Savage line. Hope to have my first center fire within 6 months.

Might have to start some research on this line too as well.

I like this gun and would want one in 243 Win.

Ace's in Washington PA had one in .308! Of course I had to grab it! Can't wait to get it out to the range!
