I'm not familiar with the Ruger American Rimfire. Can you change barrels on them like the 10/22? Will 10/22 barrels fit on an American? If so that may be worth looking at.
Good luck in your search.

The 917 is what I saw used for 330.00 I think. Heavy barrel. Cheap scope. Said it was almost 7 # which is really heavy unless that includes scope weight. I really worry about getting extra magazines for it. My local dealer says he can get the a17 for 329.00 plus tax. The simi auto sounds great but I worry about reliability. Whitakers was supposed to get the ruger american in a one time production and they have been saying that for over a year and they still don't have a date. I have a ruger american predator hmr that shoots well but took work to get it there. It most defiantly wasn't free floated which made some difference.
