In celebration of its 75th Anniversary, Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. is proud to announce the immediate availability of commemorative firearms from each of Ruger’s firearm manufacturing facilities: a Mark IV™ Standard model, a pair of 10/22® Sporter models, and an LCP® MAX. While each of these models is tastefully embellished with 75th Anniversary markings, pricing for each remains competitive and in keeping with Ruger’s tradition of providing high-value firearms at modest prices.

“Ruger has come a long way in 75 years,” remarked CEO Chris Killoy. “From humble beginnings in the Red Barn in Connecticut to three powerhouse manufacturing operations in Arizona, New Hampshire, and North Carolina – and with more support facilities throughout the United States – Ruger has made its name by providing top-quality firearms that represent a great value to the shooting public. On behalf of our almost 2,000 dedicated associates, I thank our customers for making our first 75 years such a success!”

From the Prescott, Arizona manufacturing facility, Ruger’s 75th Anniversary is commemorated with a Standard model of the iconic Mark Series pistol. Featuring a fully adjustable rear sight, an undercut Patridge front sight, and a heavy, tapered barrel, this attractive pistol balances well in the hand and retains the classic styling of the iconic Standard Pistol that launched the Company in 1949. Additional details include a 75th Anniversary logo engraving on both the receiver and the bolt, and handsome, fully checkered grip panels.

The Newport, New Hampshire manufacturing facility offers two 75th Anniversary models of the timeless 10/22 rimfire carbine. Each model features a stainless steel barrel, silver-finished receiver, polished bolt engraved with the 75th Anniversary logo, a match-sanded butt pad, and front and rear sling swivels. Model 31275 has a traditionally stained and checkered hardwood stock, while model 41275 has an unstained hardwood stock adorned with striking, dark checkering.

Mayodan, North Carolina, the location of Ruger’s newest manufacturing facility, offers a unique LCP MAX to celebrate the Company’s 75th Anniversary. While still amazingly compact, the LCP MAX is a double-stack, ten-round version of the enormously successful LCP. The Anniversary model of the LCP MAX features a stainless steel slide adorned with an engraved 75th Anniversary logo and a silver-anodized aluminum trigger. Like all LCP MAX models, the 75th Anniversary LCP MAX features a highly visible tritium front sight, square-ledge, dovetailed rear sight, and a reversible magazine release.

These four Ruger 75th Anniversary models are shipping now, and will be available throughout 2024.
