Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce the Ruger American Rifle Generation II, an update to the American-made rifle that has been the benchmark for accuracy, durability, and performance in bolt-action rifles for over a decade. Designed with customer feedback in mind, the Ruger American Rifle Generation II is available in a variety of calibers and is sure to become the first choice for hunters and firearm enthusiasts.

The most significant improvements to the Ruger American Rifle Generation II are the three-position tang safety and a more rigid and ergonomic stock. Incorporated into the renowned Ruger Marksman Adjustable Trigger, the new three-position safety maintains an intuitive “push forward to fire” operation while delivering the crisp, clean break today’s consumers expect. Moving the safety all the way to the rear locks the bolt closed, ensuring the bolt will not lift inadvertently, while a center position allows the rifle to be loaded and unloaded with the safety engaged. Redesigned for more rigidity, the stock also accommodates a removable comb riser and length of pull spacer to improve sight alignment and adjust for different statures.

Standard Generation II models feature a durable, Gun Metal Gray Cerakote barreled action and a dark gray stock that is textured with black and gray splatter for excellent grip and control in the field. The 20″ medium-contour, cold hammer-forged barrel features deep spiral fluting on most models, improving the balance of the rifle without sacrificing rigidity or accuracy. The threaded muzzle features a factory-installed radial muzzle brake.

Generation II Ranch models sport a Cobalt Cerakote finish and are fitted to a Flat Dark Earth stock with black splatter texture. Featuring shorter 16″ barrels, these rifles are lighter and more compact. Removing the installed LOP spacer (common to all Gen II rifle stocks), transforms the rifle to an ultra-short 12″ LOP for smaller shooters right out of the box.

CNC machined from stainless steel, the full-diameter three-lug bolt reliably feeds from a variety of magazines and offers a short, 70-degree bolt throw, which gives ample scope clearance. The bolt handle is threaded for easy customization and fitted with an anodized round knob. The bolt and receiver have been re-engineered for smooth operation. A one-piece Picatinny scope base is installed.
