I think we're going to need a separate FORUM just for all the interest showing for this new Ruger American Rifle "Rimfire."

Create the Forum now and move all the existing threads while you still can.

The one comment I keep seeing is the wish to have a wooden stock and you can include me.

Just like the popularity of the 10/22 this one is going to be a monster-seller for Ruger and after-market stuff will soon show up.

I have Lever, pump and auto .22's and need a bolt-action so this looks like my search is over.

artactical made a thread yesterday discussing the new stocks for the Rimfire from Boyds here: Boyds Gunstocks for American Rimfire 22LR!

Here's a quick peak:

Boy it sure is pretty. I will hold out for an hbar version I think though. I want a true bolt target gun with Ruger stamped on the receiver.

That sounds like a sweet plan, Vendetta! I've been slow to do too much with mine. I just asked for a scope for Christmas for it from a family member. I do like how the new Boyds look.

Thanks to Boyds for being the first to offer a wood stock for the Ruger A/R rimfire.

No doubt others will follow and who knows what other aftermarket options will show up.

I'm hoping for a plain walnut stock, maybe with some cut checkering.

Sounds classy, Danwin22! I love both wood and polymer. I'm always stuck for a decision. Seems like a lot of my rifles come with the opposite of what I want on it. I haven't decided with the RAR yet- keep it stock, change to Boyds polymer or Boyds wood.

artactical's 10/22 in the Boyds poly looks great. So, I am stuck with indecision

Where I hunt, wood stocks take a lot of abuse a synthetic stock will just shrug off.
So while I prefer the look of wood, I always go for synthetic.

Excellent summation. Polymer will take a beating, while wood likes to ding

Still hard to pass wood... some real beautiful grain and finishes out there

By this time next year there will probably be a thread for "Most Beautiful Ruger A/R Rimfire" with many pictures of very pretty Rugers.

The price is right and you could have one for hunting and another for a project gun.

So, I was thinking about ammo in the American Rimfire. I have really only shot 20-gr subsonics in mine. They did well at 20 yards for about 450 rounds. I haven't utilized any other rounds in this rifle- yet.

Has anyone found that the American does especially well with certain ammo? Does your rifle like a certain brand and grain over another? Just wondering.

I have been pleased with my wimpy Aguila 20gr Subs. The rifle is certainly a keeper!

Has anyone tried a Volquartsen .22 shot mag in one of these? I'm curious if the bolt will pick up shorts from the mag consistently. I want one of these for my oldest boy's 1st rimfire. $279 here locally.

Finally found a RAR at a local Big 5. Thought I'd pull the trigger but it's selling for the MSRP of $329 + fees and taxes.
