The Ruger® American Rifle® Compact Bolt-Action Rifle has a shorter barrel and length of pull than that of the Standard model, to accommodate shooters of smaller stature or hunters who wear bulky clothing while hunting in extreme cold. Ruger uses a 3-lug bolt design on the American Rifle with a 70° bolt lift, providing plenty of clearance to keep fingers and gloves from getting between the bolt handle and the riflescope. A 2-position tang safety is easily accessible and quick to operate by both right- and left-handed shooters; and, the bolt can be cycled for loading and unloading the rifle with the safety engaged. A cocking indicator at the end of the bolt can be seen and felt. Ruger designed the Marksman Adjustable™ trigger for the American Rifle to be user adjustable for weight-of-pull. The trigger is light and crisp, allowing for precision shooting in the field. The Ruger American utilizes a detachable, ultra-reliable rotary magazine that fits flush with the bottom of the stock, adding to the rifle's ease of handling. The stock is constructed from rugged composite with grooves and texturizing on the pistol grip and fore-end, providing a solid, non-slip grip in any hunting environment. The stock features molded-in, Power Bedding® recoil/bedding blocks to rigidly attach the barreled action to the stock and free-float the barrel. A rubber recoil pad absorbs recoil in the lightweight rifle. The American Bolt-Action Rifle comes with a drilled and tapped receiver, and scope bases. Made in USA.
