Ruger 10/22 (Pre 2005 model) - .22 LR
Ruger 10/22 (Post 2005 model) - .22 LR. Ruger made a series of changes to the rifle to make it more 'economical' i.e. cheaper finish & wood on the stock and changes in trigger assembly and sights.
Ruger 10/22 with black polymer stock - .22 LR

The Ruger 10/22 is a very popular sporting weapon, named based on its .22 caliber and standard 10-round magazine capacity (however it can take a variety of high capacity magazines). The gun is very popular in customization and many aftermarket parts can be bought to customize the rifle. Heavily customized models have been used in many marksmanship competitions. The Ruger 10/22 is currently available in .22 Long Rifle, formerly available in .22 Magnum and .17 HMR. (10/22 Magnum and 10/17), but no longer. .22 Magnum models were discontinued in 2006 due to disappointing sales. As they did for the Mini-14, Sturm Ruger & Co. changed the 10/22 in 2005, offering a cheaper matte blued finish on the barrel and changing out the trigger guard from metal to plastic as well as a few other cosmetic differences.

The Ruger 10/22 has been used in covert military operations around the world, usually as a dedicated suppressed rifle. With subsonic ammunition, the suppressed shots from the 10/22 are essentially silent. The only sound you hear is the action racking back and forth. The IDF routinely carried suppressed and scoped Ruger 10/22s during the years of the "Intifada" in the West Bank and other places. The IDF snipers would "kneecap" the rioters' ringleaders from a distance, as crippling them was seen as preferable to killing them with conventional sniper rifles.
