Many models exist, including the standard 10/22 Carbine, the Ruger Deluxe Sporter, the Ruger All-Weather® 10/22, Rifle models, a Compact model, and a Target model.

Rifle models feature a flatbutt plate and longer barrel; and Compact models feature a correctly proportioned but shorter stock and barrel. Also available is a Ruger Target Model 10/22, featuring a heavy hammer-forged target crowned barrel, laminated stock, and target trigger. All models include free combination tip-off and Weaver-type scope base adapters for easy scope mounting right out of the box.
- 77/17 Ruger Rifle
Ruger 77/17® rifles are chambered for the new, powerful .17 HMR cartridge. This provides long-range accuracy with the flattest trajectory available in a rimfire rifle. Its ammunition is relatively quiet and inexpensive compared to larger centerfire calibers, making it suitable for use in areas in which noise would be objectionable. It provides flatter trajectory than the equivalent .22 caliber rifles, and it is a favorite of small game hunters everywhere.
