Manufacturing details of the Sturm Ruger Model 96 Lever Action|
by Scott Crawford - July 26, 2021
- The Sturm Ruger Model 96 lever action.
- Available from: 1996 to 2009
- Cartridges:.22 LR, .22 WMR, .17 HMR & .44 Magnum
- Notes: The 96s, regardless of caliber, all look very much like a Ruger 10/22, with an enclosed receiver and similar stock, cross bolt safety catch and barrel band and iron sights. The main visual difference is the obvious, short stroke operating lever and more angled rear of the receiver. The stock is hard wood and offers long and slim angled pistol grip, low/square comb and a horrible shiny plastic butt plate. Feed is from a rotary magazine with the 22WMR version taken directly from their 77/22 M bolt-action and holding nine rounds.
Sights consist of a brass-beaded blade up front in a transverse dovetail and a fold-down U-notch plate with limited windage and elevation correction. The receiver is threaded for a short, 11/12mm dovetail base.
