Which Ruger's are made in North Carolina?

So I heard Ruger’s numbers were down the last quarter and to help out I’m wanting to purchase something new. The Mayodan, North Carolina factory opened in 2014. I was born and raised in the state. What better way to show some pride right? And from what I understand the Ruger American Rimfire rifle is manufactured there. So my question is does anyone know if any other Ruger’s are made in North Carolina? Right now I'm looking at owning a Rimfire compact in 22 mag but wanted to know if there were other guns stamped "NC" before making a decision.

The Ruger AR556 is definitely built in Mayodan, NC.

Dang. Now that makes me feel bad about buying a different AR. I have no idea where ATI is made.

As stated the ar556 is made in Mayodan, also another ar made in North Carolina is delton, Elizabethtown NC. Remington is also in Madison NC. Para ordnance, and Inter ordnance are both in NC, to name a few.

Ptr industries is now in SC.

Actually sales were up for the 4th quarter and for the year. Ruger is still the largest firearms manufacturer in the US.

That said, as a stock owner I encourage you to buy more Rugers.

I believe that the American Rimfire, AR & SR rifles are all made in Mayodan.

Good to know, thanks guys. Is the Gunsite Scout also built here? Just wondering since it's sort of a cross between a bolt action and the AR.

Go to Rugers websight. Find the firearm you are interested in. Select the model you want. Click on the "Spec sheet". When the Spec Sheet opens, there is a small grey box in the lower right corner that tells you where every model is made.

The Gunsight Scout is made in Newport, NH

If they had been autos, with detachable mags, they would be made elsewhere, thats for sure.
