Anyone hear anything about Ruger coming out with a camo 10/22?? Have you seen one? How are they? Just wondering because I didn't know that Ruger made a camo model but I saw some on Guns America. Thanks for anything you can tell me about them.

10-22 in camo-a-lamo

Saw a pair in a Wa. gun store/indoor range. Didn't thouroughly check details but it was ss., red and green and something lamo that looked better than it sounds and it had a scope mounted that had the Ruger logo on the turret covers. Their literature used to state that they didn't make and/or sell scopes, so I'm curious. Sorry for the gap-osis in the info, but I was outbound when I saw it and in a hurry. Did look sharp though.

Omaha-BeenGlockin, please tell me more

Omaha-BeenGlockin, please tell me more. How long has Ruger been making the camo model? What is the model number? I went to the Ruger website looking but they don't show anything on the camo model. They don't even mention that they make a camo model. Do you know if the camo job is factory applied? Wish I could find a live model to see. Sounds like you have a great little 10/22 setup. Thanks for any questions you can answer.

I think they have been offered less than a year----the dealer here has a few of them---but they were slow movers----it was marked down to $199 when I bought mine----I figured the finish alone was worth $100----so I bought it.

Trying to remember the model # off the box----10/22RFPCA ?????? Something like that---if I didn't get it right----its real close. The box is at home in the closet---while I'm here----eeerrr uuuummm---multitasking.

They might have farmed the finish job out----but its sold and labeled in a factory box---like the factory did the work----so who knows for sure.

Its basically the blued/syn 10/22----with a cool finish applied.

They're not a cataloged model but a distributor edition model. Ruger is simply contracted by a distributor to produce a quantity of a model not like that of thier standard cataloged models. Been doing it for yrs. Not sure which distributor got the run though.
Somebody - maybe Hogue - makes camoed stocks for 10/22 and possibly is what these stocks are. Whistle Pig has recently begun offering thier bls in a few different camo finishes also just in case a home build is a possibility.
