Ruger's new American rifle has everything needed to hang a varmint weight barrel on it for an "entry level" varmint rifle. 1. very good, adjustable trigger (skilled honing can make it excellent) 2. great, innovative bedding blocks/pillars 3. nice 3 lug bolt for a fast 70 degree lift 4. hammer forged barrels that are accurate 5. quick change 4 round rotary magazines Plus Ruger has it out now in .223 and 22-250, both good varmint cartridges. I got the 22-250 for the longer range and flatter trajectory. When I shoot the factory barrel out I'll get a 22" stainless barrel with 5 R rifling and cryogenic treatment. BUT... will we see it soon? I hope so because it's a rifle that could put that barrel to good use. Oh, yeah, and a high, rollover cheekpiece would be nice too. Why not give us a black & gray laminated stock as an option? I'd buy it now.
