SHOT Show: Introducing Ruger's American Hunting Rifles for 2014

Ruger's got a great new line of hunting rifles this year, and we had the pleasure of testing them our at the range at this year's Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show. Our Game & Fish Gear Editor, John Geiger, said, "We shot the .17 HMR at 100 yards and produced tight groups."

The American line is American made and has several different models with one being perfect for smaller shooters and youth, and one that's all-weather with a stainless steel matte finish. There are adjustable marksman trigger and bolts with dual cocking cams. We got to speak with Craig Cushman with Ruger on the show floor and he took us through some of the great new features.

The Ruger American Rimfire was just one of our favorite hunting rifles from SHOT Show 2014. Here are the rest:
