Ruger 10/22s have always been excellent suppressor hosts. Until recently, if you wanted to use a 10/22 as a suppressor host you had to purchase an aftermarket threaded barrel. This adds cost to an already expensive project.
Now, with the introduction of the new 10/22 Tactical, shooters have access to an off the shelf suppressor ready rifle. The 10/22 has all the great features that you have come to expect from the standard 10/22 with the addition of a threaded muzzle. The rifle will come equipped with a Mini-14 style flash suppressor to protect the threads (there is almost no real use for a flash suppressor on a .22LR chambered rifle).
I commend Ruger for supporting suppressor users like this.
I too kinda figured there was no need for a flash hider/suppressor on a 10/22, so they’re really making a silencer ready 10/22 – sssshhhhhh… don’t tell anyone… I can already see the ATF forms getting filled out!
Nice! This has to be the most exquisitely adaptable rifle.
Ruger has done things in the past few years that never would have happened if Bill Ruger were still alive. Bravo for Ruger for trying to make a few bucks in a bad economy.
You are absolutely correct. It is good to see them trying to make amends.
Thanks for reading Howard!
