I think most of us began shooting with a rimfire rifle in hand – the mild report, the virtually non-existent recoil and affordability of ammunition all play a role in what I consider the most effective teaching tool to marksman of all ages and skill levels.
And, not unlike Jello, there’s always room for another rimfire rifle.
Here’s a look at eight new rimfire rifles for 2018:
Ruger Precision Rimfire:
Building on the successes of the Ruger Precision, a rimfire version makes all the sense in the world. No recoil, dirt cheap ammunition (now that it’s available again), and requiring the same mechanics as a centerfire, the Ruger Precision Rimfire is guaranteed to be a big seller. Not to mention the fact that a full-blown bolt-action chassis gun in .22 LR is simply awesome. Choice of 10- or 15-round capacity magazine, with a 30-MOA Pic rail gives you a true long-range rimfire. It even accepts 10/22 magazines! An anodized aluminum handguard, adjustable stock, and 18-inch barrel makes for one slick rig. MSRP $529.
