I just picked up a used Ruger 10/22 Sporter manufactured in 2016. While I know it really doesn't make a difference which factory manual you use, pretty much all the same, since I am a firearms collector [mainly pre-1970 commercial and military] (C&R Type 3 FFL) I'm OCD about having the correct manual that was issued with the firearm. So my question to the Ruger 10/22 experts and collectors;

In 2016, was there a manual specific to the Ruger 10/22 Sporter rifle, or was it the same manual as shown in the picture below? I ask because I noted that the manual pictured only shows the Takedown, Carbine, Target, and Tactical.

Thanks in advance!

Bill

Welcome to the Forum!

Date codes on the cover of the manuals can assist in matching up a proper manual with a firearm. That manual has a date code of 8/16 so it is likely correct for your gun. Even if it doesn't specifically list your model.

And a point of info,, often,, a manual can have a earlier date than when a gun was made. Sometimes the very same manual is good for more than a single year, and sometimes several years.
