The Ruger 10/17 Magnum Rifle is designed for the flat-shooting .17 HMR and features a new light, rifle-style hardwood stock. The stock is slimmer with an increased length of pull and a tapered fore-end. A flat, synthetic buttpad replaces the curved, carbine-style buttpad on the Ruger 10/22 Magnum Carbine, and the barrelband has been eliminated. The 10/17 Magnum Rifle features a steel receiver with integral patented scope mounts, and Ruger scope rings attach directly to the steel receiver. The rifle also features a 20-inch tapered barrel, folding rear sight and gold-bead front sight mounted on a centerfire-style banded ramp. Price: $510. Contact Sturm, Ruger Inc., Dept.
