Ooh ooh iwanna play. Looks like a nice little Ruger 10/22 with carbon fiber barrel and a Fajen laminated thumbhole stock. Bet its a nice little plinker. Welcome to the madhouse:D

Err not to be one to pick nits but maybe a pic of a handgun would have been more appropriate for the handgun forum.:p

Boy, if you like that one have I got some mindblowers for you.

This Ruger 10/22 was actually made this year by Ruger as a limited editon for the USA Shooting Team. $30 of each rifle was donated to the USA Shooting Team plus the purchaser received a 1 year subscription to teh USA Team magazine AND...drum roll please... (only time I know of that Ruger has doen this) 1 extra 40th Anniversary clear magazine. Only 2008 of these 10/22s were made and they feature laser engraving in the right hand side of the Red, White and Blue Barracuda stock. This 10/22 was sold with a blued hammerforged barrel.

I built this 10/22 up with a Volquartsen Carbon Fiber barrel and it has a completely tuned action and trigger. Scope is a Nikon 4.5-14X40 mil-dot with side focus AO.

Close-up of the bolt:

This is how the 10/22 was sold (minus scope):

For those who didn't know about these there was also the Ruger Race Rifle that was sold last year and limited to 1500. $25 of each of these sold went to the NRA:

Ok, Here are a few things that I think you will like. I have been painting and making custom wrap decals for Ruger 10/22s as well as a few other custom items. I am limited to how many pics I can post so here is a link to my Photbucket. Enjoy the pics.
