Ruger has collected submissions of custom built Ruger 10/22. They have identified 10 finalists that they can feasibly reproduce in quantity as the 50th Anniversary rifle. The winner will be determined by votes on their web page.

These are the finalists:






















These are some awesome rifles.

ETA: All these pics, perhaps I should provide a link.

I don't think Gary's is the best pick for a commemorative gun, but I think that'd be an awesome configuration for a long-term production gun. Ruger needs to start putting the RAR stock on the synthetic 10/22s soon. Like yesterday. Then they need to make a Takedown variant.

Tossup between Tyler's, Chris's, and Gary's.
Link Posted: 10/21/2013 7:19:04 PM EDT
I can honestly say that is longest I've spent trying to decide which answer to select for a GD poll.

Really tough decision, but I picked Rick's.

Link Posted: 10/21/2013 7:22:48 PM EDT
I also picked Rick's.

Classy, clean lines.

Simple elegance

Gary's but with the takedown feature added.

ETA: I guess I didn't pay attention to the Anniversary part, I just want to by able to buy the one I picked. I'd go with Chris's version for a Anniversary model.
Link Posted: 10/21/2013 7:49:29 PM EDT
I like either Chris's wood takedown (voted)
or Rick's classic clean long barrel
Link Posted: 10/21/2013 7:49:42 PM EDT
Tyler made a sweet setup.
Link Posted: 10/21/2013 7:54:56 PM EDT
I can't decide between Burke or Joe.
Link Posted: 10/21/2013 7:56:01 PM EDT
Tough choice.  I ended up going with Chris.
Link Posted: 10/21/2013 8:09:09 PM EDT
Damn those are sweet. I like the takedown customizations a lot.
Link Posted: 10/22/2013 6:47:59 AM EDT
New day, new vote.
Link Posted: 10/22/2013 6:51:06 AM EDT
I voted Joe but Rick was close, this is a commemorative not a special edition.

But I think the wooden takedowns, the mini-scout rifle, and Gary's "American Series" styled models should all be production guns. I would definately buy a wood stocked takedown and the mini-scout.

The mini-scout doesn't appeal to me as much, but I generally agree with this.

stainless take down with the green mountain laminate stock

Gary's is the one design I'm quite sure I would buy.

Good sights and sling studs, adjustable stock, perfect kid's gun for Appleseed/CMP.

Maybe combine Chris' and Tyler's designs.  Don't have the barrel band on the heavy barrel and its forend.  Have the band on the one with fixed sites. It is the traditional 10/22 configuration (aside from being a takedown).  I'm not sure which finish would be better.  Maybe some other finish.  If there has to be a winner, then flip a coin.  My 2 cents.

Good suggestion.

if they put the sight system & threaded barrel on one or both of tylers barrels Id buy that before you could put it on the rack, but you can still add the sights to tylers offering so I went with his. plus he's from WA so I had to represent the hometeam

The rest are pretty guns for shooting off the bench and telling folks how neat they are.
Gary's gun is a useable gun for all shooting and has quality irons that allow you to actually shoot accurately for way less than anything but a junk Tasco scope.

Link Posted: 10/22/2013 8:31:20 PM EDT
After voting for Chris I took another look at his design. How would that forearm attach to the barrel? How are the currently offered take down model forearms attached to the barrel?

That's why it needs to be a long term production gun.

I'll go with Tyler. But a couple of the others aren't bad either.

All right, you've convinced me, although the FH is retarded.

I have no use for the FH but the threaded barrel is useful for a suppressor.

You raise a good point. Gary's is the rifle I'm most likely to buy; however I think Chris' Takedown Deluxe may be the best commemorative model.

Yeah the FH is ugly as hell but the threaded barrel is handy. I'd rather it just be a standard A1 or A2 instead of the Ruger blingtastic one.

The "practical" Appleseed style is now in second place with 16% (leader has 18%). Anyone want a rifle they can use for more than bench shooting?
Link Posted: 10/25/2013 11:08:19 AM EDT
The multiple barrel take down rifle would sell very well.  Have a tactical barrel with a FH, then a target barrel, and lastly one chambered in 17 mach2.  Include 2 10rd and 2 25rd mags, a custom packable bag, keep the price under $1,000 and it would sell like crazy.
Link Posted: 10/25/2013 11:21:33 AM EDT
How about they just make a version that you don't need to immediately improve with aftermarket parts?

You know, a nice wood stock, a trigger that doesn't suck, and no more plastic trigger guard, barrel band, and trigger.
Link Posted: 10/25/2013 11:22:33 AM EDT
I like Gary's design as an all-around .22LR rifle design.  Carrying over the adjustable stock concept from the American allows it to fit young shooters, so another plus for adaptability.  I can also see the appeal of the two different wooden stocked Takedown versions (which are essentially the same rifle, so why two entries?) for a special anniversary version, but I don't see why I'd want two separate barrels.  Maybe if the bull barrel had a cantilever setup so you could install/remove the bull barrel with an optic that would retain zero?

For a commemorative, I actually like William's with the laser etched stock.



Probably wouldn't buy it though.

Why?  They did it in the bolt action world.  It is/was the 77/22, and it was pretty much perfect as produced, but few bought it due to price.  Now you've got the American Rimfire, which I'm sure functions fine, but is clearly designed to be cheap.  Side by side, there is no contest, but the holes in the paper are the same.





Many years ago, the buying public made the choice to buy cheap over quality...

Which is too bad.  It would be nice to see them reintroduce a commemorative made as they did them, oh, 'bout 50 years ago.  Such as this finger-groove, that is a sweet little stock...
