Does anyone have any experience owning one of these? Thinking of a 270.

I bought the All Weather American this summer and hunted with it this past season. It performed well and I am very happy with it. I put on the Vortex 4-16X50 Viper Scope with BDC reticle. It was more than I needed for the where I hunted this year, but that was this year. This gun can take some long pokes. David Petzal at Field and Stream gave a great review of the Ruger American.

I know this forum was intended for the rifle, but anyone get their hands on the pistol? Any comments?

The American is probably the best of the cheaper "economy" bolt actions out there now.

I too was checking the American out the other day. I have been shooting a 30-06 Ruger m77 stainless for 20 plus years. Will probably never buy another rifle. No need too. The American did not have the same feel as the m77 but I am used to my gun. Love the Rugers

I looked at one about 3 weeks ago. At first glance and by holding the gun, working the bolt and playing with it, it seemed like a cheap gun. I own a Mark 77 in .308 and love it. So I was disappointed to see the "Lack of Finish" on this rifle.

All that being said, I have never fired one to see the groupings or cycled a box of rounds through one. All the reviews are favorable for the most part, and at the price it seems like it is a good value.

If you can find a Mark 77 in your caliber used buy it. I wouldn't sell mine for twice the price of an "American".

my 3 cents, mac

I purchased a .223 and found it to be a pretty good gun. I then bought a 260 rem with threaded barrel, and yesterday I bought a 22 caliber with a threaded barrel..........I like these guns, you will not find a better weapon for the money.
