I enjoy your video reviews. Thanks for the insight as it has helped me make several successful choices in my firearm purchases over the years.
Can you single shot this rifle ?
You should do a video on the browning buckmark rifle
I have one in 17hmr and it is a beast
I love this dude, he’s so chill. He earned a sub.
Very good review.I really like the fact that you talk about what the trigger pull is set at – such an important issue when it comes to accuracy.
Hi Jeff thanks for this video. Which barrel length you suggest for a range use only (no .22 hunting allowed in Italy). My range is 50 to 200 mt longest. So, 18 or 22 inches ? Optics setup distance ? Thank very much. Greets from Rome.
AMERICA!! Just bought the compact version for my 11-yr old from Cabela’s for Christmas (assuming he won’t see this comment). Great video and review my friend! Thanks for putting it up. Makes me feel a little more confident in the purchase.
Do you know if they make left handed models?
Don’t waist your time with these brands……..go buy the best guns in the world………Anschutz nothing comes close period
We miss you Jeff.
Could you make a comparison between this, and Mossberg 802 plinkster? I’m a little torn between which of the two to add to my collection.
magazine same of ruger 1022 ??
I’m thinking I want to get this and put the Primary Arms ACSS 6x scope on it. I’ve yet to get a bolt action and believe this would be a good companion to my 10-22 takedown and SR22 pistol. Love Ruger products. Reasonable price and outstanding products backed by best customer service should ya ever need it. Good video as usual.
Greetings Jeff I always enjoy your videos… I contacted Ruger a few years back and asked them if they were going to manufacture the Ruger American Rimfire in Left hand versions… They said yes they were… So I waited a year and it never happened… So I went with another rimfire rifle manufacturer and I not holding my breath for the arrival of the LH Ruger American Rimfire. The best features of the Ruger American Rimfire is the raised comb which is a great feature when one is using a scope; the Tang safety is located in the most favorable location, as well as the 60* bolt throw, the 10-22 magazines. Also a 1 in 14 twist rate. The 22 mag ought to shoot heavier bullets with the faster twist – but nobody has tested this feature. Most 22 LR are 1 in 16 twist rates. As are most 22 mags.
Great video. I’m planning on purchasing this rifle soon. I’m a left-handed shooter as well, and it seems it’s pretty easy to operate left handed. (That is an outstanding beard, by the way.)
Bolt action rifles are so bad ass.
What page is the info about dry firing on?? Just Incase it wears a little and breaks want to get it fixed. Also great video!
Hahaha he’s a left handed shooter
I’ve examined Ruger 22/45 pistols that were ruined by dry firing. The firing pin made contact with the extractor cut on breech face.
Hey Jeff can this rifle shoot the .22 long and .22 shorts as well just wondering ?
Wow man thanks for the Info in the dryfire part is that with 10/22 as well I have one and I will pick up a bolt action rifle too love my rugers
I bought the magnum and long rifle and i will say , there amazing rifles good job ruger good video jef
Jeff I’m looking at getting a Ruger American in the .17HMR. You have any recommendation on weather to get the 18 inch or 22 inch barrel?? I’d prefer the shorter one, but will it decrease accuracy over the 22 inch??
This looks like the longer version is this the compact version? What do you think the differences in accuracy between the longer version on the compact? I’m sure somebody in this comments section knows for sure LOL. Can anybody give me a reply I’d really appreciate it thank you so I’m looking at the Ruger American Bolt Action Rimfire rifle 22LR compact version, if anybody has one let me know what you think of it
Does anyone know if this rifle uses the same barrel as their semi auto 10/22? I cannot find a threaded barrel Ruger American but I have a 10/22 threaded barrel. thanks.
Great Video. Thanks…..Benny Howell
the rifle comes with a HORRIBLE rear sight.
Great vid. My only question is what kind of scope mounts did you use? I’ve been having trouble finding some that will fit.
nice rifle bro!
I hear rattlesnakes!
I purchased the compact version on Friday. Love the rifle.
I just bought the target model. Had it home for about ten minutes and had to take it back. It came with a Weaver rail already on it. When I started to put a scope on it I noticed that one of the screws holding the rail on was severely cross-threaded and would interfere with the scope mount. (I should have noticed this at the dealer but I was too busy checking the stock, the fit and finish, the trigger pull, everything but the scope rail. . .)The dealer said they’d have to ship it back to Ruger and let them decide what to do, repair or replace. Truth is, I don’t want a brand new repaired gun. I own several Rugers. All of them purchased brand new. This is the first time I’ve had any sort of complaint.
Bought mine this past summer and what a joy it is. It’s my go to weapon.
I love the music at the end. Bluegrass I take it?
price of rifle? please.
Hey Jeff, it seems like life would be a whole lot easier if you just stopped being left handed. Hopefully that piece of advice was helpful to you.
Wow-I had to subscribe! You’re a smart fellow and I love the beard. Thanks for the very informative info.
Do u need license for it?,thx
It’s a dandy ,I perfer tha carbine.
I can’t find your review on the Ruger American Rimfire chamber in 17HMR, I remember watching one time
I live in Canada and am looking for my first rifle. Ive seen that a .22 should be someones first rifle as it is for the most part cheaper and can get around 50 shots for under 10$. Im wondering if you or anyone can help me pick out and look into a first rifle. Im having troubles figuring out which rifle to go for. In Canada we have some restrictions on certain guns but am looking into a semi-automatic .22 and bolt action.
i have that gun amazing
you left handed sir
Being a left handed shooter, do you find it to be a pain in the butt to shoot a right handed bolt gun?
My buddy is left handed and he said he prefers right handed bolt guns but most lefties prefer left handed guns 🤷♂️
Rest In Peace Jeff. You will always be a legend in the industry. Thank you for all you have given the firearm community. You will be forever missed and never forgotten.
Jeff you stay left handed. I was left handed and I was a marksman in the Air Force. You know the old saying is that left handers use the right side of their brain and i believe that implies not the wrong side. Lol
I love the trigger on this, but I was disappointed with the iron sights. I set the rear sights as high as they would go, but they were still hitting about five or six inches low at 25 yards using CCI Standard Velocity. Oh it holds a tight group, but mine definitely requires a scope.
Hi, I saw a video by Iraq veteran 8888, "how far will a .22 kill".
Can you tell how far this rifle will kill ? Does it have a longer range?
