The following is a press release from Ruger
Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce the new Ruger® 10/22 Takedown® with target barrel. This newest introduction shares all the popular attributes of the 10/22 Takedown line. Readily separated into two subassemblies, the 10/22 Takedown offers a convenient transport and storage option for the popular Ruger 10/22®. As reliable and accurate as every 10/22, the 10/22 Takedown makes it even easier to keep America’s favorite rimfire rifle by your side. The barrel and forend of the 10/22 Takedown are easily separated from the action and buttstock by pushing a recessed lever, twisting the subassemblies and pulling them apart. Reassembly is the reverse of takedown, and is quick and easy. The friction fit lockup of the assembly joint is simple to adjust, but will rarely need re-adjustment after the first assembly. The lockup is secure and repeatable, ensuring an accurate return to zero, even when receiver-mounted optics are used.
